A few years ago some nonconformists started wearing their jeans with a slouchier and baggier fit. It was a way of challenging the status quo and a way of women wearing their jeans in a different silhouette from the ever so popular skinny jean. It’s a rather strange trend especially considering the fact that when it comes to denim for women unlike for men the fit is the most important factor and comfort only comes after that.
However over the past few years the boyfriend jean has only grown in popularity and has been spotted on celebrities and models such as Jessica Alba,Gwen Stefani,Zoe Saldana,Jessica Biel. It seems that menswear is influencing some of the trends in womenswear and today a large number of the high end luxury denim designers are offering their denim range with boyfriend jeans for the ladies. This is a rather unconventional phenomenon especially since premium denim brands sell their jeans on the basis of the concept of a superior fit when compared with cheaper alternatives. The premium boyfriend jeans feature an intense amount of attention to detail through specialized laundering techniques, hand sanding as well as hand distressing for realistic looking vintage shades
We believe that this trend will only continue to grow in popularity into to 2014 and that the various designers will offer them in an even wider variety of styles and although the boyfriend jean might not be every girl’s favourite pair of jeans we don’t see this trend disappearing anytime soon. Boyfriend jeans can be styled with heels and bold accessories for anyone wanting to make a statement or they can be worn with a t-shirt and sneakers and rolled up for a cropped fit that flatters the baggier style of the jeans.
