Spring Essentials Countdown #3: Boyfriend Jeans


Katie Holmes started all the craze about a year ago, when she dared to walk out of the house wearing what looked like my dad's jeans he wears to work...and the man works outside.  Like, blue collar, people.  And he's not a small man.  Anyway, you don't have to look like you're wearing Randy Bowen's jeans.  They're "boyfriend" jeans, not "dad" jeans.  There's a difference.   The key points:  1. cuff 'em at the bottom, 2. a slightly beat-up wash, 3. a little loose-ish (i.e not as fitted as your Citizens or Paige jeans) in the thigh.

Here are some good ones for cheap and I daresay you could just go to the Goodwill and find some quite easily.

501 Boyfriend cut on Levis.com for $78

BDG on Urbanoutfitters.com for $68

On AE.com for $49.50

I'm so happy these jeans are in style. They're very comfortable and I think they're cute. With you on the Goodwill though. No need to spend $100 on holey jeans.
