CHANNELING CHIC: BOYFRIEND JEANS FOR TRIANGLE FIGURE
I am going to be elaborate on this one cause this is my body type too. So, excited!
Triangle shaped women have the lower body wider than the upper body and that’s why a dark denim which falls straight from your hips is a good choice for your shape. Saying that; the waist size should be the same size that you usually wear and although the fit should be straight, it should not be baggy.
When it comes to pairing your boyfriend jeans, a high-low style that ends on your hip is a triangle figured girl’s best friend. Don’t have one in your wardrobe, don’t worry! Pick a blouse, shirt or t-shirt that is a long enough to reach your hip and tuck it in front, leaving the back un-tucked.
For a professional look pick a shirt or blouse in pretty prints or pastels the draw attention to your upper body. Tasseled moccasin, cat eye sunglasses and a chic bracelet or watch or both together are perfect for this office look. Minimal and dewy make-up works best for this look and you can add a cat-eye or berry lips for that extra feminine factor.
To take your boyfriend jeans to a date night pair it with sequined tops, peplums, lace tops or leopard or any other statement print. Finish the look with heels and keep the make-up high on glam with bold eyes and glossy lips.
Moving on to a casual look; t-shirts, vests, knits and sweatshirts are the perfect options for triangle figure. I am triangle figure myself and talking from experience, you girls really need to work up the glam factor to make this look work. Ballet flats (printed, laced or neon) and cat eyes or tortoise shell sunglasses are perfect to give this androgynous look a feminine touch. Bright red or orange lips with a hint of gold, turquoise, green or any other colour on your eye would make this look high on glam, instantly. Rings and bracelets are other perfect additions to this look.
For a fall look, layering with plaid shirts, sweaters in neutral shades and dark outerwear is the way to go. Go for jackets, blazers and coats that end at your hip and are structured to give your sleek upper body some definition. If you like long coats, trench coats are the best option for triangle shaped women. Wide heeled boots and a hint of colour in the form of scarves (knitted or otherwise) and bright lips are the final finishes that will help you get noticed on the fashion radar.
So there it is, rulebook to wear boyfriend jeans for triangle/pear figure. Tomorrow it is inverted triangle figure.

CHANNELING CHIC: BOYFRIEND JEANS FOR HOURGLASS FIGURE
The first thing I have to say to all you hourglass shaped women is I hate you all and your perfect bodies. Just kidding! :)
The focal point of an hourglass figure is the waist and even though you have a perfect figure you need to find looks that flatter both your upper and lower body at the same time accentuating your waist.
They key for hourglass women to wear boyfriend jeans is keeping it simple. Pick a dark wash with little to no distressing. And if you are a little short, a cropped pair is what you should go for. If you can´t find a cropped pair, you can always cuff your jeans and show off those ankles which makes you look taller (as I already mentioned in the old post).
Since, most styles suit hourglass figure you can pair your denim with almost anything. Feminine blouses with pleats and fitted at waist wrap tops are the best choices for this figure, though you can experiment with shirts and plain t-shirts, tucking them and pairing them with blazers or belted jackets. To finish of this look wear pumps, court shoes or peep-toes.
Moving on to casual looks, I know hourglass women are the blessed ones and if you have that body, why not flaunt it. Saying that, dressing down and going all casual would look equally good on your figure, so take a risk by going for a loose top or a muscle tee and pair it with slip-on shoes or sneakers. The most important thing to know about this look is you should always go for a cropped top that shoes off your waist. To finish off this look wear layered accessories(necklaces/bracelets) and bold lips.
For fall, wear your jeans unrolled with heeled boots and layer with sweaters or sweatshirts and add statement overcoats which are cinched at waist.
So there you go, you perfect figured lovelies; grab a pair and do androgyny the sexy diva way.
Tomorrow it’s boyfriend jeans for triangle or pear figure.

CHANNELING CHIC: BOYFRIEND JEANS
Boyfriend jeans are stylish and we all love the street style looks of celebrities sporting them on Pinterest, Instagram and magazines. But let´s be honest, most of us still believe that they make us look a bit masculine and undone; sticking to our skinnies most of the time (I do it too).
One thing to know about this trend is that it isn´t going anywhere for a while; thanks to our fashion influencers like Jessica Alba, Rosie Huntington, Diane Kruger, Miranda Kerr, Rihanna, Olivia Palermo, Miroslava Duma, Christine Centenera and the list goes on and on. So, next time you walk into a Zara, Mango, Levis, Gap or J brand store (little biased about these brands), pick up a pair and I will help you style them the celebrity way.
Let´s start with some simple things you need to know in order to make your boyfriend look chic and polished.
Baggy does not mean bigger:
Wearing your old ´fat´ jeans (we all have one from the b.p. recipes years aka before Paleo recipes years) is not the way to channel boyfriend jeans. Always buy the same waist size that you usually wear. If you are little short an ankle length pair will make you look taller or you can cuff your jeans for the same effect.
Matches all kinds of shoes:
Boyfriend jeans can be paired with all kinds of shoes so pick anything depending on the look you are planning to channel. Wear them with sky high heels, platforms, low-heeled sandals, slip-on shoes, oxfords, sneakers or even slippers.
The secret to wearing flats or low heels is cuffing your jeans and have at least one statement element in your look. It can be anything from a leather jacket to bold lips, hat or accessories like a major arm party or a sharp looking bag.
You CAN wear it to work or even date nights:
Boyfriend jeans are not just for casual dressing and you can make them look professional as well as create a date night look with them. Pairing them with a plain t-shirt or tucked in shirt and throwing a blazer on top makes for a very stylish office look. Wear this look with court shoes and a sleek handbag to make it look extremely polished.
For a date night a flirty feminine blouse with strappy stilettos is the way to go. Add some bling and a feminine clutch or sling to bring in some feminine factor to the look. Don’t pick a pair that is too baggy for this look.
The right length:
An ankle length boyfriend jean has to be picked carefully. If you are rolling your jeans, it should be about 2-3 inches above your ankle and that´s the spot your jeans needs to hit. Any shorter and they will start looking like a Capri and cut of your height.
Boyfriend jeans doesn´t means ripped and distressed jeans:
If you are not a fan of ripped and distressed jeans, a darker shade with little to no distress is the go to pair for you. Pair it with blouses in pastels or plain t-shirts. A navy blazer will be a perfect addition to your dark, plain and traditional boyfriend jeans.
Going all androgynous:
Boyfriend jeans is an androgynous trend and at some point we need to embrace it. Pair them with sweatshirts or letterman sweater and sneakers or oxfords. Bright lips, statement necklaces, bracelets and high buns will give this look a much needed feminine uplift.
Boyfriend jeans for fall:
Although most people consider it a summer staple, boyfriend jeans look amazing in fall. Pick darker shades with not too worn out look and marry them with fall trends like military parka, leather jackets, oversized coats. Layering them with a shirt, sweater and throwing a oversized coat on top along with boots and a beanie or fedora will give you a quirky fall look.
Now go on pick a pair girls!
Oh no wait, first we need to figure out according to your figure what type of boyfriend jeans will suit you the best.
In the following posts I will cover the best suited boyfriend jeans for different figures and looks for that shape. I promise I will post a new blog daily for this series. Tomorrow it´s, boyfriend jeans for hourglass figure.
