best boyfren

warm weather and rising temps mean practically everyoneee is pairing up for a spring fling (H i’m talking about you girl.) I for one am joining in the fun- in the denim department that is. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans for a few months now and recently i’ve started feeling like cinderella- every pair i tried on was either too big in the waist, or the fly was baggy, the wash was too light or two dark, or the knees were either too shredded or not distressed enough. the list went on and on.

after trying on approximately 12 pairs of said “boyfriend” jeans (including these, these and this pair as well) i’ve narrowed down the two perfect pairs:

#1 perfect but pricey: the josefina by 7 for all mankind $225

the fit is slightly more narrow than most boyfriend jeans and the style comes in a bunch of different washes- perfect to satisfy even the most demanding of denim divas

#2 classic but hard to get: the j.crew distressed boyfriend $135

word must have already spread that the j.crew destroyed boyfriend jean in roxy wash distressed wash is a great middle of the road pair of boyfriend jeans. solid construction (the waist fit me perfectly in my normal size), a medium wash and a reasonable price tag- but a wait time of 6-8 weeks for delivery depending on your size.
