I decided to participate in the "boyfriend jean" trend. Which is basically a cut up and bleached out pair of my husband's old Levi's. And can I tell you that these are the most comfortable pair of jeans I've worn in a long time!
It's funny how anything that vaguely resembled a "mom jean" became a fashion faux pas for years. And now, boyfriend jeans are just as trendy as a skinny and a bootcut jean.
I decided to add my gingham shirt. The last time I wore it, it was part of a dressy ensemble. I love how it looks juxtaposed with torn jeans.
Creating your own boyfriend jeans are quite simple: try them on, mark where you'd like to make cuts with an exacto knife with chalk. Carefully make you cuts and use sand paper to fray the cuts. Toss in the washer with chlorine bleach and then dry. Repeat until they look the way you want them to.
