The Boyfriend Jean

Follow

 

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.

Tips on Wide Leg Jeans

Category:
Follow

 

Fashion is fun partly because there is a huge wealth of dressing options on the market. Quite literally, there is something for everyone, every taste, and every style. But the number of choices we have to make when we're shopping (or even just getting dressed in the mornings) can feel a bit daunting at times. So it never hurts to have a few tips at your disposal, amiright? 

With that in mind, today on the blog we're going to be talking about how to wear wide leg jeans, a stylish and oh-so-comfy alternative to the skinny jeans that have been dominating the jean scene. I'll walk you through the pictures below and show you just how easy it is to seriously rock this trend.

A huge thank you to the fabulous Plum staffers who styled and modeled in these pictures!

Lydia Rose paired her wide leg Mavi's (now only $49) with a cozy sweater and fringed bag, channeling the effortless esthetic of the 70's. The pendant necklace and bold print of the sweater keep the look pulled together and stylish.

Think wide leg jeans are not figure flattering? Think again. If you want to show off your shape, follow Amelia's lead. She tucked in her collared shirt and finished the look off with a wide leather belt. The long line created by her pendant necklace keeps the outfit from looking broken up.

If you want to dress your jeans up a notch, swap out a more casual top for a sheer blouse and blazer, like Lydia Rose did. Add some chunky jewellery and a textured bag and you're polished (but with a cool edge) for your evening out.

Heels or wedges look fabulous with wide leg jeans, particularly if you're petite, but I know not every woman is a fan of them. If you're apprehensive, look for a low wedge with a slight platform at the toe. This keeps the angle of your foot from feeling too extreme while still giving you a little bit of extra height.

And remember, there are no hard and fast rules in fashion. If you're unsure of how to style a particular item, just experiment with it. And don't forget to have fun!

Plum carries Mavi Jeans and Yoga Jeans, two of the best names in the business. Mavi's have a fantastic fit and they're available in just about every cut and colour under the sun. And Yogas, they are the comfiest pair of jeans you will ever own because of their unique, 5-way diagonal stretch.

The right pair of jeans is one of your most valuable wardrobe staples. You know the pair I mean. They are your go-to's, the kind you just have to slip on to feel good. You wear them with a plain white tee on Monday and look great. Wear them again on Friday night with your favourite heels and look even better.

Jeans and T-Shirts

We think jeans and a T is a great look that seems to endure!  But this spring the look has the benefit of coloured jeans.  We know... we know... you probably are a little hesitant to go for those bold jean colours, but wait a minute … it is not that outrageous if you remember a couple of tips.

If you are going to wear a bold colour on the bottom don’t over do it with colour on top. Wear something plain like a white or neutral coloured T on top then punctuate with a bold coloured accessory like a scarf or bag.
 
And if your look is denim, like the yoga jeans, then any of this season’s fantastic colours can go on top!
 
For a limited time: Buy a pair of jeans at Plum, and get a Cap Sleeve T-shirt for $5 (reg. $20)! See details.

"In May 1997, the CURE Foundation inaugurated NATIONAL DENIM DAY, its main fundraiser. This event is held annually on the Tuesday following Mother's Day. Businesses, organizations and institutions across Canada are encouraged to allow employees, members and/or students to wear denim and receive CURE’s ‘pink flower’ ribbon in exchange for a suggested $5 donation.

According to statistics from the Canadian Cancer Society, 23,200 new cases of breast cancer in women and 180 new cases in men were diagnosed in 2010. Of these, 5,350 proved to be fatal.

Wearing jeans has never been so important!"

 

From April 28th until May 10th, 2011, Plum will contribute $5 to the Cure Foundation for every pair of jeans we sell.  Get involved and don't forget to wear your denim on May 10th!
