Boyfriend jeans and plaid

I've always loved the way boyfriend jeans look on others but finding the right pair for me isn't always an easy task. Since I have small hips and am on the shorter side, boyfriend cut tends to look baggy and loose on me. Thanks Jean for introducing me to these awesome jeans. It takes a lot to get me excited about a clothing purchase these days and I absolutely love these jeans. They fitted on the waist but give me the room I need in the thighs. There was an inch difference between a size 24/25 in terms of the waist measurements. I went with a size 25 because it gives me slightly more room in the thighs for a slouchy look (waist = 14", length = 36"). I am just simply obsessed with these jeans and highly recommend them to those who are looking for a pair of slim fitting boyfriend jeans. 


What I am wearing:
Denim: GAP real straight jeans - size 25R
Jacket: J.Crew snowcap quilted
Top: Target plaid shirt
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Avaline
Shoes: *old* (similar here or here)

  5. The jeans look great on you! I want to get in on the trend, and even tried a pair from LOFT but they just didn't look "right". Maybe Gap is the way to go!

  6. I must be crazy but I swear I commented on this post last night? Ah well, I love these boyfriend jeans on you and their flattering fit. I do think they are tricky style to pull off and these are perfect. I'd also love to know where you got your belt...I'm on the hunt for something similar. Thanks for linking up today!

  8. They jeans are a lovely fit on you! I always struggle to find jeans that fit my because my waste/hips are a different size to my legs.

    I love the shirt, too.
