Happy Monday guys!! I hope we all had a great weekend. Mine was a bit… cray. But I’ll get into that in another post. Today we’re talkin’ boyfriend jeans! I love the look of boyfriend jeans, I won’t lie. But I think what I like about them is how they sort of hang off the models I’ve seen wear them, and they just look really loose, comfortable, and wearable.
UNFORTUNATELY, if you’ve got ass and thighs, it’s hard to find boyfriend jeans that even look like boyfriend jeans. Like I don’t know what the difference is between tight jeans or anything else. Like everything is tight when you fill out your size. So I had the hardest time finding comfy jeans that looked like the sought-after “boyfriend jeans”.
So I made my damn OWN. At Kohl’s they have these Sonoma Goods For Life jeans that I bought a size bigger than what I normally get. They’re loose fitting, and they fit like, well, boyfriend jeans.
Then I took a serrated bread knife and shredded ’em up a bit. I like holey, distressed jeans and I like the holey boyfriend jean trend, so I took it a step further.
I stuffed the leg I was working on with a hard surface and went to town. I like this method as opposed to using a scissor cut and pulling out the threads because 1) It’s faster. 2) it’s messier. and 3) it’s 100x easier. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to rough up the pockets, the hem, and the waist!
And if you’re curious, I got my top at Belk, there’s a similar one here, my shoes at Payless, (currently on sale for $15!) and the necklace is from Forever21 (which I couldn’t find online, but you can find similar here!)
