It's True—These Are Officially the Coolest Jeans to Own RN

In fashion, proportions are always in flux, and right now, we’re seeing so many pieces with oversize silhouettes. Suiting, leather jackets, and poplin button-downs have all been upsized for spring, but the list doesn’t end there. Denim is also getting the slouchy treatment, which means we’re seeing a resurgence in boyfriend jeans. Their signature wide-cut fits and more relaxed shapes are everywhere on the fashion set at the moment.

If you’re wondering how to wear boyfriend jeans, ahead, I’m highlighting some easy looks to take inspiration from. While they may have a baggier shape, the jeans can still read as polished and cool with the right styling. The best part? It only takes a few pieces to pull off a great look. Whether you opt for a tweed jacket, penny loafers, a crisp poplin button-down, or retro sneakers, there are so many ways to pull them off. Here, eight looks to commit to memory.

With Sleek Boots

A pair of sleek boots will carry you far and happen to be the perfect piece to wear with boyfriend jeans. I'd recommend a pair with a square or pointed toe because they add modern lines to the baggier jean shape.

With a Tweed Jacket

A tweed jacket can easily read as a "grandma" piece, so pairing one with boyfriend jeans instantly makes it feel more of the moment. It doesn't get more classic and modern than this.

If you want to go the sporty route, start with a great pair of retro sneakers, then add a baseball hat and a simple top. Casual yet pulled together, this is the perfect weekend look.

With a Crisp Button-Down

I've said it before and I'll say it again: a crisp button-down is such a great investment because there are so many ways to style one. In this case, it lends a tailoring element to wide-cut jeans.

With loafers

It doesn't get simpler than boyfriend jeans with a great white tee and loafers. You can also layer a denim shirt and blazer on top if you'd like to add an outerwear element.

With a Denim Bra Top

If you're interested in a going-out denim outfit, look no further than this pairing that combines slouchy jeans with a midriff-baring denim bra top. This is giving me major Y2K vibes.

I've been talking about the surge in low-rise pants and the trend is actually much more wearable than it sounds. An easy way to pull them off? Stick to the basics and wear a pair of low-rise boyfriend jeans with a hoodie and a sharp blazer layered on top.

With a Cable-Knit Sweater

Cable-knit sweaters are the ultimate preppy staple that acts as a great counterpoint to relaxed denim. Wear your sweater tucked into jeans with a waist-cinching belt and cool loafers.
