I have been obsessing with the borrowed-from-the-guys trend since for-ever!
For sure, at least, since Current/Elliott first came out with their very own take on the boyfriend jean – I can’t remember – how many years ago. Those jeans were literally a life-changer for me!
Boyfriend jeans nowadays are as much a staple in our closet as skinny jeans, the LBD, and the white t-shirt. Every brand has its own interpretation of the boyfriend, and I have lost count of how many different styles and versions are out there. It is the one style that’s most present – in I don’t know how many variations – in my own denim closet: the slim boyfriend, like the Citizens of Humanity’s Emerson, or the insane safety pin jeans from Kendall & Kylie (they’re brand new and totally sick!), and then there is the oversized super baggy pair that I love, which is actually a drop-crotch, from PRPS, AND my beloved girlfriend jeans from Parker Smith – the list is endless LOL!
So what I am obsessing with right now are the BDG “real” borrowed-from-the-men’s! Think gangster movies from the 50’s… so retro, right!
These bad boys come in a dark blue wash with pinstripes – that’s why I thought right away of the 50′ – and also in a clean light blue wash (see last image below). Definitely a super cool new take on the “old” boyfriend. I can see myself wearing them with a pair of Dr. Martens boots and rolled up at the ankles. Or even let-down with some attention-calling platforms.
Both washes are available right now on the Urban Outfitter website.
