If you are a faithful Denimology follower, you must know by now that I have a standing, never ending, love affair with boyfriend jeans!
And the baggier the better, which I realize is not everyone’s cup of tea. But it’s also okay to go with the slim version of the boyfriend jeans. Although I have yet to figure out what’s a boyfriend jean that features a high waist and is slim-fitting along the legs. I mean, it doesn’t make sense to me. Isn’t a boyfriend jean supposed to be borrowed from the man in your life, presumably too big and loose for you? And with a waist that should then hang loose around your hips and give you a slight drop crotch? And like even if the style is a hi-rise, you should be able to wear them as a lower rise and like this get that drop crotch look. So keep in mind – upsize rather than downsize when shopping for boyfriend jeans.
If you are really into the authentic boyfriend jean, then your best bets for right now are our top choices: the Citizens of Humanity Emerson jeans, and the rag & bone Dre Jeans. If you are going for a more slouchy boy-fit, we still recommend upsizing for both brands, though.
