Peplums and Boyfriends

 “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects”- Albert Einstein

For a few years now, the boyfriend jeans has been adopted as a favorite wardrobe staple by style mavens and trendsetters for the casual look. Ironically, the “boys” have a hard time appreciating this look. Their main arguments “they look too baggy”, “unflattering” or “too casual” and my personal fave “your butt looks flat in those jeans”. If your BF gives you the later, you have my blessing to give a scathing remark, then kiss and make up later.
However, boyfriend jeans don’t have to be boring or too casual. Here are some tips to dress up this staple. 

  • A flirty top goes a long way!
  • Add texture, choose a top with a more feminine texture to balance out the boyish feel of the jeans, lace or satin works perfectly
  • Opt for a top with interesting details, a peplum is my personal favorite. It defines your waist and an illusion of an hourglass figure.
  • Wear your favorite statement heels, lengthen your legs and making the look more polished and chic.

What are your go-to ways of wearing the boyfriend jeans?
