Day to Night: My New Boyfriend (Jean)

Sydne Style Old Navy how to wear white jeans boyfriend denim day to night neon

Say hello to my new boyfriend… jean that is. Loose fitting, cropped denim is back in a major way. The trick to wearing the boyfriend jean is in the fit. If you have curves, you want to find a style that has stretch, like this pair from Old Navy. While your first thought might be to go overly baggy to hide any problem areas, this will only make you look larger. So make sure to find a pair that is only slightly looser than your average jeans. And always tuck your top in, like I did for both my day and night looks.

I brought attention to my upper half by adding color on top. For day I went with a neon button-down. And for night, I elongated my frame with a white tank, topped off with a hot pink blazer. For both outfits I used neutral accessories to let one bold color remain the focus of my outfit.Β What are you wearing with your boyfriend this summer?

    Thank you Sydne! <3 I'm sorry but one more question…did you get 0 Short or Regular or 0 Petite? I'm 5'3 and weigh about 112-115lbs. Hope you can help!

      No problem Kristi! I got a 0 regular. Since it’s cropped it didn’t matter as much. I’m 5’3 as well and I weigh about 105-110 if that helps!
