WHO CAN WEAR THEM? Anyone! Girlfriend jeans are relaxed but not sloppy. The sleeker silhouette eliminates the boxiness that’s typical with boyfriend jeans.
HOW SHOULD THEY FIT? They should be a bit roomy but not slouchy or hanging off your hips. They should not cling to the curves of your body.
WHAT DO I WEAR WITH THEM? Shoot for “not trying too hard chicness”. Essentially you can wear casual to dressy with the jeans.
ROLLED CUFFS 101 – Jeans with rolled up cuffs are BACK! NOTE: Pegging – the right rolling from the 80’s is NOT back – very passe! Fold the hem upward about ½ inch. Repeat once or twice more until the rolled cuff hits about an inch or two above your ankle. Remember, you aren’t going for a ‘capri’ look – keep it around your ankle. Cuffs that look a bit off-kilter will look effortless and cool.
Trivia Note: In 1984, the very famous fashion designer, Yves Saint Laurent said “I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.”
