Hey team, welcome officially to jeans week! The first outfit post kind of got hijacked by me ranting about people on the interwebs, so hey, welcome, settle in and let’s talk about how I wear boyfriend jeans as a plus size woman. I’m a fan of the boyfriend jean and find that for most plus women this is a style that works for most of us!
As much as one style can, anyway.
But why is that? Well, the relaxed feel of the boyfriend jean, often with rips or patches, lends itself to a more relaxed fit. I actually prefer them with rips and distressing as it adds interest. I’ve had a pair before without them and they just didn’t have the same feel to them. Something to consider when you head into the shops/online stores.
With a straight leg and plenty of opportunity to cuff to the perfect length, it’s versatile, short version. Wear them with sneakers and a tee or with heels and a bodysuit. Really, the sky is the limit. My favourite has always been to pair the more relaxed fit of the jean with a wedge or heel and a close fitting top, bomber jacket or something like that. It’s casual and cool and easy to wear.
All my favourite things.
Do you know a plus size blogger who ROCKS the boyfriend jean? The one and only Ms. Ashley Rose. I’ve embedded one of her Instagram pics below because this is such a great look with a firmer fitting boyfriend jean. So good, a total gold star styling moment.
See what I mean? Great right? Such simple, classic styling that is modern and all around unforgettable. You can learn a lot from Ashley Rose about how to wear this style if you’re interested. There’s plenty more inspiration for boyfriend jeans to be found over there.
So where are you going to be looking for the boyfriend jeans style? My go-to on this has been Torrid (in the US), Kmart (locally) and ASOS Curve (all over the place). I have also heard amazing things about the Embody Denim boyfriend jeans (stocking to a 22). These stores almost always have a great plus size boyfriend jean, with a little searching, your perfect pair is probably there. And you’re going to want a pair of your own, trust me. Here’s how I wear mine!
