How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans by Day and Night

February 22, 2019

Thank you to Macy’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post. 

Boyfriends are great. LOVE them. In fact, I’ve had the same one since I was 14 – well, ok technically now he is my husband, but I digress. Boyfriend jeans on the other hand… can be a little intimidating especially when you are partial to let me guess… SKINNY JEANS. And I feel you. It is so hard to “loosen up” your look when skinnies seem to work. I have a few tips for breaking into the boyfriend jean world and some easy ways to take them from day to night. The silhouette is casual and lived-in, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be glammed up for a night out on the town.

My best advice for trying out this style would be to go for a slim boyfriend jean or just size down in a regular boyfriend. That way you can dabble in the trend in a comfort-zone sort of way. Here are two ways I styled boyfriend jeans for day and night from the insanely good selection at Macy’s. No really, I had to seriously scale back my cart (but linked all of my favorites below!). Also, Macy’s is having a big sale with 20% off on thousands of markdowns – use code BIG now through February 24th.

How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans By Day

By day, pair your boyfriend jeans with any sweater, but a “fit point” by giving that knit a little front tuck. Juxtapose the masculine style with a shoe that’s a little (dare I say…) sexy! Yes ladies, show some toe, lol. And if it’s too cold out, swap out the sweater for something more fitted (like a turtleneck) and wear a cool bootie instead of a sandal. It’s really all about finding that balance between tight/loose and covered/exposed.

How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans by Night

My preferred way to wear boyfriend jeans is actually for a night out. Pairing your boyfriend jeans with a fun pair of heels and a camisole or tank is equal parts comfortable and date-night worthy. The extra room in your jeans for the hot molten chocolate deliciousness that I can never seem to deny is just an added bonus. Again, it’s all about taking a looser silhouette and balancing it out with a more delicate top and finding that fit point (in this case it’s a slight tuck into the belt).
