Do you love your boyfriends?

Well, I am actually talking about my "boyfriend" jeans and yes I love mine. They are so comfortable and can be easily dressed up or down. Some people tend to think of this style of jean as "sloppy". I think anything can be considered sloppy depending on what you pair it with. These provide an alternative jean style for your fall wardrobe.

A couple of styling tips for these jeans:
 1. Roll them up two to three times. This gives them a more polished look instead of looking like you are "actually" wearing your boyfriend's jeans.
2.When purchasing a pair, buy a shorter pair, so you will not have to roll them up as much.
3. For a more casual occasion, wear them with a pair of flats or booties.
4. When dressing them up, pair them with a pair of pumps or a dressier top. A darker color will also provide a more modern and polished look.

 I paired my "boyfriend" jeans with this embellished sweatshirt I thrifted (thrilling find) and gold accessories.
