What are boyfriend jeans, anyway? Are they just jeans that are too big, with the cuffs rolled up? Well...no, although 'repurposing' jeans from your husband or boyfriend is certainly a good way to extend your wardrobe. Boyfriend jeans are supposed to be big in the waist and thighs, but fit across the hips. The crotch to waist area can also be a little longer than normal, so the overall effect is "loose" but still feminine.
That was how the original ones from Current Elliot were designed but now it seems that boyfriend jeans are anything distressed and rolled up. If you can find a pair that fit you the way they were supposed to, they will quickly become an indispensable weekend pant. Roomy, comforting and deliberately old-looking, they are the jeans equivalent of an oversized college sweatshirt.
