Not a Boyfriend Cut - Order a Size Up if you Want That
on March 5, 2014
Normally a "Boyfriend" jean is relaxed and a little distressed, with cuffs that hit the ankles and roll up. This jean is tighter-fitting, which I happen to actually like, but it doesn't correspond with what you expect from a boyfriend jean. I am 5'8, and the cuffs are a little lower on the ankle than capris on me (as shown in the photo, but slightly longer). The color is also not a true blue, but more of a dull washed blue. Not particularly on-trend, if you know what I mean. In short... these might categorize more as "mom jeans" than boyfriend jeans. They sit right at the waist or slightly below. Keep in mind, I am between a 12 and a 14 at present. Had I ordered the 14, however, I feel they would have just been saggy butt jeans instead of boyfriend jeans. I'm keeping them, however, as I am confident I can give them a good bleach working to bring them into a more stylish look.
