Comfort + style? A no-brainer. If you’re looking to see how we style boyfriend jeans, all of our articles featuring them and which brands we found do boyfriend style denim best, scroll on down! We’ve tested ALL the boyfriend jeans, came up with ways to keep them weekend-casual or how to dress them up and generally have lots to say on the topic. So, stay for a bit and maybe you’ll consider revisiting those classic boyfriend jeans in your closet.
What Are Boyfriend Jeans?
Consider boyfriend jeans the anti-skinny jean of straight leg denim. They’re the comfort jean, the baggy, slouchy, ready-to-be-cropped jeans that play well with high-tops and a sweatshirt. The cut is more straight-leg than tapered, with a loose fit all the way down. A true boyfriend jean tends to have a lower rise, too. We dress them up, wear them casually and love them for all seasons. A pretty floral top and ripped boyfriend jeans for spring, or leopard print booties and a cozy sweater for fall — the options are (still) endless for boyfriend jeans.
Tips For Styling Boyfriend Jeans
Tip 1: Add Ladylike Shoes
Finding the right footwear for boyfriend jeans can be kinda difficult. Wearing pretty mules and cuffing your jeans a bit like Laura is an easy fix!
Tip 2: Wear Something Sexy Up Top
Offset the boyish look of boyfriend jeans with a sexy cami like Shana. It helps the casual style of boyfriend jeans look a bit fancier, too. Just add your go-to bag and a pair of cute sandals.
Tip 3: Elevate Your Look
Pairing your boyfriend jeans (especially the ripped styles) with a tailored jacket or blazer helps elevate your jeans and take them from day to date night.

You *might* be familiar with us covering rag & bone for their skinnies, but definitely give their boyfriend jeans a look, too. We especially love the Dre Slim boyfriend fit.
American Eagle has been doing all the boyfriend jeans justice for YEARS. We love. Their updated boyfriend jeans sort of have a bootcut, dad jeans vibe, so the Tomgirl jeans are worth a check, too for a more classic boyfriend jeans style.
