Gwen Stefani’s look here is actually nothing special. It’s a regular jeans/tee/sneaker outfit. The reason why I posted these images is because I have been suffering a lot from the misuse of the term “boyfriend jeans”.
For example, I do not in any way agree to the term of SLIM boyfriend jeans. There is no such a thing. Slim boyfriend jeans are nothing more than baggier fitting regular straight leg jeans with tapered legs. The use of the term girlfriend jeans is the totally right word for these.
Boyfriend jeans are supposed to be the jeans that you actually borrow, or steal, or rip off your boyfriend LOL!!
They should have low back pockets, like men’s jeans usually do, be a bit saggy at the butt and large at the legs without being tapered. So, here you go – Gwen did it right in all terms!
You can either buy a pair of men’s jeans and oversize them, like I always do with my Levi’s 501 – I only buy the original fit, though. I also constantly wear one of the super cool and edgy PRPS men’s jeans in my favorite fit, the Barracuda, because of the low rise and straight leg. Men generally do not wear high rise jeans 😉
You should also check out some “real” boyfriend jeans, in the true sense of the word, from Citizens of Humanity, the Corey. Another good option are the Current/Elliott jeans, that’s the brand that came up with the “boyfriend jean” in first place..
