It was in fall 2013 when distressed boyfriend jeans became a trend. The style carried well through the seasons that even until now, you will see ladies rocking the now-denim staple, whether it is actually their boyfriend's or their own.
I've tried on several pairs before, but none of them seemed to look right on me as the original style is loose and didn't flatter my already wide hips and thighs. Recently, however, I found my match: the slim boyfriend jeans - a slightly more fitted style cousin of the original boyfriend jeans. If you have the same body type as I do, this could be a match for you, too.
This style fits well for ladies who have a relatively shorter lower body, because it doesn't add extra width to your shape, which can sometimes make your legs appear shorter than it really is. With the slimmer fit, it almost hugs your legs.
Speaking of almost hugging your legs, another reason why I am enjoying the slim boyfriend jeans is the leg room! I love my skinny jeans but sometimes my legs just want to breathe. Can you relate? Especially for days when I know I am going to be running errands, this makes it easier to move around while still adding style points.

Lastly, since jeans are a closet staple, you can style it in different ways. Dress it up with a pair of heels, a top, and maybe even throw on a blazer, or dress it down with sneakers or slip-ons and an easy-going top like what I'm wearing in this post.
