Continuing our denim break-down from yesterday, another big “how-to” are the wide leg jeans. The question always is whether a wide-leg that is cropped makes you look shorter, or, like. having fatter legs than a regular length wide leg. And we cannot repeat enough times: you need to wear not what fashion dictates, but what makes you feel good. So, keeping the good feeling in mind, we swing both ways 😉 – cropped and long.
But if you’re still looking for a “concrete” definition: The length of the inseam should depend on your body type. Long legs and slim hips, any inseam works, but if you have shorter legs and are more on the curvy side, please do a regular inseam and wear the jeans with a platform or some stilettos.

Now, let’s talk about one of the most contradictory denim style: the boyfriend jean. Some of you think that boyfriend jeans lose their essence if worn cut-off and cropped without cuffing the hems. And we tend to agree.
The meaning behind a boyfriend jean is that you are wearing HIS jeans. So longer and slouchier is the way to do this. Unless, of course, your boyfriend is actually slimmer than you LOL. Then it would be a skinny boyfriend jean?!? Which takes us the the latest boyfriend jean style: the slim boyfriend, former girlfriend jean… confusing right!
So – recapturing – if going for a boyfriend jean in the true sense of the word, do not crop or cut-off. Leave them long and cuff them several times at the ankles.
For all other boyfriend jean styles, cut-off in an ankle length is okay, but again, avoid the too cropped.
