Boyfriend jeans are on the short list of denim styles every woman should own (along with skinnies and a great pair of kick flares, of course). But we know that sometimes the relaxed style can feel a little rote (there are only so many Sundays in a row you can pair them with a tee and sneakers, no?). But this year celebrity trendsetters are finding cool ways to mix things up. So how do you wear boyfriend jeans in 2018? Below, you'll find seven inspiring ideas that feel especially fresh. Now you'll want to wear them every day of the week.
On Aleali May: Off-White Sand Hiking Boots ($900)
Vintage-toned jeans and a coordinated jacket have a '90s feel, but adding a simple turtleneck and ankle boots make the look feel especially modern.
On Bella Hadid: Marei 1998 coat; Re/Done High Rise Stovepipe Levi's Jeans ($350)
Ankle boots are a classic shoe to style with high-rise boyfriend jeans. Add a pair of skinny sunglasses for a 2018 twist.
On Kaia Gerber: Misbhv 6 YRS Down Jacket ($610); T by Alexander Wang Slack Distressed Cuffed Boyfriend Jeans in Vintage Bleach ($295)
For a seasonally appropriate take on boyfriend jeans, lean into their oversize nature by pairing them with a puffy parka. Finish with laced combat boots and you're all set to go.
On Keke Palmer: Illesteva Vinyl Sunglasses Matte Red ($220)
A plaid blazer was a favorite this past fall; just add boyfriend jeans and a sweatshirt for an ensemble that works from day to night.
On Victoria Beckham: Victoria Beckham Power Frame Sunglasses ($385)
While boyfriend jeans have a reputation for being a relaxed pick, with a tucked-in turtleneck, clutch, and boots, they feel perfectly polished.
On Rowan Blanchard: Proenza Schouler PSWL Hooded Puff Jacket ($695)
Instead of styling stilettos with standard skinny jeans, try swapping in boyfriends.
