Happy Spring! [throws flower petals in the air]
You know how I've been on this multi-year quest to find the perfect pair of worn-in-just-right-light-wash denim? Well. IT'S HAPPENING, PEOPLE. Spring 2014 is all about the light wash boyfriend jean….and I couldn't be happier. For inspiration, The Frisky has the best collection of boyfriend jean street style snaps I've seen yet. I've pinned my favorites here.
(Side note: I loved Maggie's comment on yesterday's post, "If I Pin one more pair of destroyed boyfriends with heels or – heaven forbid, sandals – before realizing that hypothermia would set in before I made it to the end of the driveway…" Sing it, sister. That pretty much summarizes ALL of the inspiration I've been seeing, too. There are so many cool ways to wear these now – I'll work on it.)
Back to the boyfriend jeans!
1. Rag and Bone The Dre, $204
Easily my favorite pair of the bunch. Rag and Bone is always super soft, and this wash is gorgeous. Would wear them allllll summer long.
2. Blank Denim Galaxy Jeans, $108
Nothing too crazy, just a solid choice.
I really, really like this pair. The distressing is unique and….cool. Blank Denim gets really good reviews, and considering the price point…hunh. I may have to try these.
4. Old Navy Distressed Patch Jeans, $34
No promises about what the bum looks like on these, but patches! Yes, Old Navy!
More patch love. I found these jeans to run big, so size down.
6. Gap Real Straight Skimmer Jeans, $69
If you recall, Gap's Real Straight jeans are the perfect boyfriend jean for mamas with curves. However, I don't love that dark piece at the bottom hem…I'd chop it off or roll it.
7. James Jeans Neo Beau Boyfriend Jeans, $180
A shade darker than the others…this pair is pretty much the gold standard of boyfriend jeans. Love the updated slimmer shape.
8. Current/Elliott Traveler Jeans, $218
These are might bump Rag and Bone's Dre Jeans out of my top spot. I know Current/Elliott is crazy-soft…but check out how these look unrolled, as well. Hmmmmm……
9. Gap Sexy Boyfriend Jeans, on sale for $43
These are not as soft as I would like, and they run really big. However, the color is spot-on and the price is now so low, I had to include them.
