boyfriend jeans

Not so fast! To insinuate, we, the female population prefer to 'copy' someone else's style rather than create our own...GASP!? Could this really be the case? Do we not prefer to put our individual styleprint on our outfits?  Although, there appears to be an entire industry devoted to what the biggest celeb is wearing. After all, if the Duchess of Cambridge so much as puts on a smile, it sells out! But that does not mean we can't put our own punctuation mark on a trend!
Men throw on jeans with little regard for what goes with it.  We, the opposite sex, then borrow them and turn them into something hot or just hotter! The beauty of these ageless dungarees is, they embody comfort, they're forever funky and if you just want them for germinating your geraniums, that's completely acceptable too. BUT if fashion fun is your thing, add a pair of jacquard print booties, add a belted blazer, and pull your hair up like you just don't care! Poof! You're a fashion diva! Not that you weren't already!
Unless your dwelling is a grand Scottish castle, or you were the inventor of the colour blue, like the rest of us, you don't get your twenty dollar bills from your back yard tree. In short, you want to maximize your wardrobe! And jeans can do that. Dress them them up, dress them down or just go it simple (but sexy). Here's a great contrast to the ruggedness of the jeans. Feminine, flirty, irresistible.
The fashion pages are currently filled with stripes and dots. An easy pairing is this black and white with jeans or pretty much anything you have in mind. Simple, yet fresh.
Here are a few more ideas...a slight bend on the usual white shirt, tie the front for a bit of a sexy flair, slip a chain belt through the loops, and top it off with this crop sweater. OR wear the sweater alone, buttoned up as a top with a string of pearls. Cardigans are such a wardrobe work horse!
The same pair of jeans, just never needs to looks the same on any two people. Simply add a hat, a scarf, tie it in an unusual way, funky boots or a bold, unexpected necklace. Or add your broach to your hair bun, for a different approach. Any number of ways to put your personal stamp on a look. But I truly feel the best accessory (if you can call it that), is your posture. Because no matter what is ripped, torn, shredded or uneven....somehow, great posture and an air of confidence, make it look like it's meant to be! You trend setter you!!
Yours in Fashion passion...

The Boyfriend Jean


Well, it is officially September and officially too late to keep pretending that fall isn't happening. The air has definitely started to have a bit of a nip to it, especially in the evenings. So chances are, you're probably grudgingly looking into revamping your denim wardrobe. It's getting just a liiittle bit chilly for bare legs.

Luckily, your denim options have never been greater (great as in many and great as in awesome). We've already talked about wide leg jeans and skinny jeans, today it's time to put the spotlight on the boyfriend jean.



People can make the mistake of thinking that the relaxed fit of the boyfriend jean isn't sexy. Wrong-o. You just have to keep the overall tone of your outfit sophisticated, and the look comes together beautifully. For example (since we're borrowing from the boys anyway), try topping off your boyfriend jeans with a tailored jacket.

Tailored blazer, $195 and Mavi Boyfriend Jeans, $98.

This is one of my favourite looks for fall, and one of the easiest to wear! You can pair almost any kind of top with the boyfriend jeans (t-shirts and button downs are my favourites) and add a structured jacket for a wearable, fashion-forward look. 

I recommend finishing this look off with a fetching pair of pumps or wedges. We like borrowing from the boys, but I say let 'em keep their shoes. Some heels, or even a cute set of ballet flats, will keep your outfit appropriately chic.




And now for something a little bit special! Starting this Friday, September 7th, we're helping you build your fall wardrobe with a promotion. We're offering a lace trimmed cami, pictured above in one of eight delicious fall colours, for just $2.00 with any purchase of $75.00 or over.* This offer is only good while quantities last, so get 'em while you can!

*Not applicable to previous purchase, limit one per customer.
