WARDROBE WAKE-UP: boyfriend jeans

This is the first in a new series of posts which will take an item already in my wardrobe – and I imagine, most people’s wardrobes – and look at how it might be worn for the new season. I realised recently that I actually have a fair amount of clothes in my wardrobe and that in recent years I haven’t invested in too many cheap items, so that most of these clothes are of pretty good quality. I just don’t seem to wear a lot of them. This series will attempt to “wake-up” my wardrobe and, hopefully, help you to do so too.

Not particularly the most obvious choice but my style icon for autumn is Katie Holmes. She might not be the most stylish of the Hollywood crowd but after seeing a photo of Katie Holmes from a few years ago in husband Tom’s jeans, I am going to take the way she wears them for myself. I found my own pair of boyfriend jeans in a Topshop sale a year ago and am never too sure how to wear them without looking frumpy or boring.

Katie’s variety of looks (above) prove that boyfriend jeans do not have to be boring jeans.

The androgynous look was big news on the catwalks for Autumn/Winter 2010, too, so with a pair of boyfriend jeans, you’ll be right on-trend.

Jeans featured above, clockwise from top left: ASOS Aged Vintage Peg Leg Jeans; ASOS Aged Vintage Roll Up Boyfriend Jeans; ASOS Ripped Mid Blue Iggy Jeans; and Levis 601 Tapered Boyfriend Jean.

What item will you be “waking-up” this season?

    Great post. I've got three pairs of boyf jeans really like these ones and love finding new ways to wear them. A pair of killer heels and some silk or lace up top is my favourite way to feminise them.

    i'm in desperate need of some wardrobe wake ups so i'll definitely be reading x

  3. such a good idea for a series of posts. look forward to seeing what other items you chose to do this for. i absolutely love katie holmes (since the good old days of dawson's creek) – i don't think anyone wears boyfriend jeans as well as she does. gorgeous inspiration. xx
