After a long fall and winter, and a, so far, too short summer of straight leg jeans I, for my part, so feel the need to push the refresh button.
Not that I don’t love my straight legs still. But after going through all phases: high- and sky-high rises, cropped with frayed hems, slim as well as wider legs, regular and over-long inseams, well, I need a change.
As an eternal boyfriend jeans lover and, yeah, actually – addict – I need to go back there. But sadly, not many brands are including the original boyfriend jean in their collections anymore. Original as in – with a looser fit at the hips and upper legs and tapered towards the ankles. This is the boyfriend it all started with. Remember, the idea behind is exactly that these jeans should look and wear like as if you had borrowed (stolen:-)) them from your boyfriend. Not the slim boyfriend (jean), and neither the too baggy (jean). But the “authentic” one
So we got into the “let’s search for the best boyfriend jeans out there” mode and bingo! Check out our favorite pairs for RN – ripped and distressed, as well as for the up-coming colder seasons – darker wash and more clean without too much distressing.
