How To Keep Boyfriend Jeans Looking Sophisticated

If you’re into boyfriend/drop-crotch jeans but don’t want to go outside looking like a Gwen Stefani fan from the early ’90s, there’s a way to pull off the look in a sophisticated fashion.

Redbook says, “Boyfriend jeans (baggy and cuffed) are the trendiest right now but can be sophisticated, too — just avoid the torn, ultra-distressed, low-rise styles that scream “teen.” They’re also versatile: Dress them up with a tailored shirt and heels or down with flats and a favorite tee.”

A Stylish Way To Wear Your Jeans With Ankle Boots

On our radar today? The Marcy Stop and their ongoing denim-styling prowess. We love how they styled this pair of grey light-wash jeans with maroon ankle boots. The jeans are turned up in a dramatic cuff to accentuate the ankle area and prelude the bold red shoes.  We’re loving the jacket and accessories too. Score a similar style with a pair of light-wash grey jeans by Victoria Beckham.

Can You Lose Weight Just By Wearing These Jeans?

…sound too good to be true? The verdict is a bit hazy, but according to WWD, there’s a new pair of jeans in town that can actually help you lose weight.

weight loss jeans

Refinery29 explains:

One brand, Mohicano Jeans, has aloe vera, vitamin E, amino acids, and enzymes woven right into the fabric — things that supposedly reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks by promoting cell growth, collagen, and elastin. After wearing these jeans for 15 days (don’t lie, you’ve done it before), skin’s hydration should increase by 11.5%. The cosmetic properties are good for about 40 washes, after which you’re left with a normal, though reasonably cute, pair of $85 jeans.

In a trial of 160 women, 2/3 said they noticed a change for the better over the course of four weeks of everyday wear. Other brands work on more or less the same principle and retail in the ballpark of $80 — though not all last as long as 40 washes, like the Eve jean by LeRock and its leg-shaping abilities, which only last for 28 days and retail for a full $275.

How To Dress Up Jeans With Peplum Style For Fall And Winter

You think the peplum trend is going away?  Think again. It Girl Hanneli Mustaparta shows us how to get the look for fall and winter with a few key wardrobe essentials for keeping those flirty ruffles in your street style repertoire.  Keep The Beat, Mango‘s style blog, says: “The secret with peplum is to combine it with a skinny trouser, denim or otherwise. The added touch of the gloves gives the look a more feminine edge, while a good heeled shoe streamlines the figure. And we must not overlook the oversized bag either, ideal for carrying all your things.”

What Jeans to Wear with Pointy Toe Pumps

This fall, pointy toe shoes are back!  So, how do we style them with our jeans?  According to Glamour Magazine, a fashion DON’T is to wear fall’s pointy toe pumps with your wide leg jeans.  Instead, pair your cute metallic or printed pointy footwear with cropped jeans.  Whether you agree with this style point or not, do note that cropped and skinny jeans allow you to better show off the straps, such as the Alexander Wang Tati Lizard Print pumps with strappy details, and cut-out details such as the 3.1 Philip Lim Kadie Booties, by not draping over them.  And while you’re at it, take a look at a few pairs of skinny and skinny cropped jeans we’ve set aside for you.

How to Wear High Waisted & Mid-Rise Jeans

Recently, Denim Therapy asked Raven Denim Creative Director Yael Torbati about what she thought were some perfect denim fits this summer.  “We are super into mid-rise and high waisted jeans…they hold that belly in, show off your waistline, and seam to just be universally flattering!  We’ve all seen the pairing of high waists with crop tops but for a look that’s extra sleek and sophisticated, I suggest wearing it with a one-piece swimsuit or a unitard. This creates a sleek line, with no messy “untucking”. Also, many high waisted styles have really cute detailing at the waistline (since it’s often a focal point) so wearing a one piece is the best way to show it off.
