Lately we have been spotting once again the cuffed boyfriend jean – 2016/2017 trend -out on the streets worn by “regular” people, and also on quite a few celebrities.
What with the denim trend having been cropped and unfinished, cut-off hems, we’re kind of wondering if rolled up cuffs are going to be a thing again.
Personally, I have never really given up totally on by cuffed boyfriend jeans. I wear them both ways, cut off with shredded hems, and rolled up. I prefer my men’s jeans really oversized and baggy, and they work better cuffed than cropped. It looks more authentic. As for the women’s slim boyfriend jeans, usually I prefer these with an unfinished hem and cropped above the ankle. The don’t look so hot with a bulky cuff.
In the end, as I like to point out – you have to do what you feel like. Don’t let fashion dictate you. Create your own fashion. It’s all about how you feel when you wear any kind of outfit. And, of course, it’s all about the vibe you want to transmit.
Here are a few men’s jeans suggestions = authentic borrowed-from-the-guys:
Of course, the unbeatable Levi’s 501, Triarchy’s men rigid jeans – you need to go up 2 sizes for a real baggy looks and be patient, they take a while to become worn in, but it’s so absolutely worth working for, and the James Perse Relaxed Fit Distressed Jeans made of selvedge denim.
And here are some cool options for when you are in a more slim boyfriend style mood:
