When all you really want to do is eat cake for lunch, maybe even several days in a row, it’s a good idea to have a pair of boyfriend jeans in the closet. Picked up this pair about three years ago while traveling out west and fit friend thought they were crazy. Baggy, no shape. Now, she kind of likes them. They are perfect for when you are going for a comfortable, casual look. Just the sort of thing to wear when it’s freezing outside and you might luckily be working inside at your desk for a good part of the day.
Usually like to pair them with something fitted on top. This time fitted ribbed turtleneck is underneath a kind of sexy when worn alone silk blouse. As the blouse is a bit oversized and that silhouette is usually paired with skinny bottoms, not today, decided to belt it in so that the shape of the body wasn’t completely lost in all of those clothes. Pushed the sleeves up of both the turtleneck and the blouse so that there was some skin exposure going on and finished the look off with favorite warm, and high, boots. Felt the outfit needed some height and that a heeled boot dressed up the casual look of it all.
Boyfriend jeans can and do save the day sometimes. Love knowing they are there for when needed. Love too that the hands can actually fit in the pockets when baby it’s cold outside. Yes, Tim Gunn does advise that fashion is not really about comfort. Indeed. Lifestyle, here at every day dress, can be about comfort. Would love to hear your thoughts.
One more thought, just got off the phone with oldest daughter that works upscale retail in Boston MA. She says boyfriend jeans are back big for Spring 2013.
Again, stay warm. xoxo
