How to Style Boyfriend Jeans

how to wear boyfriend jeans

This week we’re taking on the boyfriend jean trend. I know it’s not for everyone but Carly (TSF) and Jill (Glamamom) finally convinced me to jump on the bandwagon.

When I found this sublimely cute pair of jeans at Loft, I had to go for it. Then I decided to put together a little how-to video to share my tips:

Get the look.

Momtrends was not paid for this post. As always, we get a lot of free clothing to style. But no one paid me to put any of this together.

  • Cute video! I’m wearing boyfriend jeans in my post for today too! I can’t get enough of them!


  • Andrea @ Momma in Flip FLops2

    Thank you. I have been stressing on how to pair mine, but I don’t think they’re fitting correctly. 🙂

    • momtrends

      Awww, hope this helped.

  • Perfect styling! BF jeans look incredible with heels.

    • momtrends

      Flats just…fall flat!

  • KateBayless

    I haven’t been brave enough to try, but the video may be swaying me!

    • momtrends

      do it!

  • So very gorgeous! Looooooove boyfriend jeans! 🙂

    • momtrends

      Clearly the three of us think alike!

  • THanks for shout out! And SO glad you tried adorable do YOU look! Omg! You are right, they aren’t for everyone…but they are amazing for the right person. I adore mine and wear them a million different ways. You look everything about the fit and just “pinned” it to a NEW board I started… “how to style boyfriend jeans:)”

    • Oh! Thanks for the pin

    • momtrends

      You have to share the board with me! Would love to contribute.

  • Shannon McCarthy

    What do you do when pumps/heels are not an option?

    • wedge heels are good if you need a more solid base or go with a VERY feminine flat.

    • momtrends

      Really fancy flats with a pointy toe. But try wedges first.

  • GREAT advise! You look absolutely gorgeous in bf jeans!

    • THank you!

    • momtrends

      Thank you!

  • theshoppingmama

    Now I want those LOFT jeans!

    • I’m sure they are on sale now. LOFT has the best sales.

    • momtrends

      Get them…they are probably on sale now.

  • AvgGirlsGuide

    Absolutely love! I almost bought those boyfriend jeans; they’re a great fit (though wish they had a drop more stretch), but you styled this perfectly.


  • Jen @ Cuddles and Chaos

    Ooooh, I want those! My biggest problem with boyfriend jeans has been finding a pair the doesn’t look frumpy and sloppy. These look fab!

    • momtrends

      Yeah, I had to find a skinnier leg when I started trying them on. This LOFT pair was perfect.

  • Stillblondeafteralltheseyears

    I want a pair, need to find ones that work for short legs

    • momtrends

      Steer clear of baggy!

  • Boyfriend jeans look great on you! I love the look, but they’re just not right for me. I’m a little too petite for them and tend to look overwhelmed.

    • momtrends

      Well as least you know what works.

  • momtrends

    Oh, a teense more stretch would be grans. (LOFT are you listening?)

  • Jamie Reeves

    So cute! I love that pop of yellow in the bag and that top is very cute. It doesn’t look like typical Old Navy!

  • This is a cute ensemble and you paired it perfectly – it looks great on you.
