What Shoes to Wear With Boyfriend Jeans?
Boyfriend jeans came out being the opposite of skinny jeans, basically to provide a bit of comfort to us ladies who got tired of tight jeans. They are usually a little baggy and they are meant to give that sort of nonchalant vibe of, ‘oh, don’t mind me, just raided my boyfriend’s closet is all.’ There is a lot to love about boyfriend jeans… but a lot of us often find ourselves stuck when it comes to what shoes are best to wear with boyfriend jeans. Rolled up boyfriend jeans have a unique shape and as such, certain shoes will definitely work better with them than others. But what styles of shoes are ideal?
Well, wonder no more. Here at Outfit Trends, we are bringing you 30 different types of footwear to wear with boyfriend jeans.
Let’s get started with some quick and simple tips for styling boyfriend jeans.
- The most common way to wear your boyfriend jeans is to roll them at the cuffs. This adds a little structure to the looser fit of the leg and looks super cute with a variety of shoes.
- Look for boyfriend jeans that fit mostly snug around the hips, are slightly looser around the thighs, and are medium baggy around the calves.
- Distressed denim is a popular choice for boyfriend jeans and gives them that slightly edgy factor that makes them so fun to wear.
- Boyfriend jeans are quintessentially casual, but by pairing them with specific pieces as well as shoes, you can make them even appropriate for work! (Depending on your job, that is. They would not be acceptable for office jobs, let’s put it that way!)
- Because boyfriend jeans typically hit right at the ankle or above it, adding some height and elongation through heels is a great way to visually lengthen the body.
Now let’s look at some examples!
