So I’ve always loved the look of boyfriend jeans on other people… just not me. Every time I walk into a shop and see a pair I think, ooh maybe these will be ‘the ones’, and then I try them on and you’ve guessed it… they’re not. So, I came to the conclusion a while back that boyfriend jeans look good on other people, just not me. Well here’s the thing, I’m pretty short at 5’4, and my legs aren’t by any means long, in fact I’m pretty sure they’re shorter than average… so, if I am going to embrace the trend, they will never look as good on me as on a slightly taller, longer legged person. But I figured still… maybe if I found the right pair maybe I could make them work for me. Well, I did (just this last week) find a pair that I loved from American Eagle. Their boyfriend jeans (or tomgirl as they call them) have elastane in them making them slightly fitted which I love because they’re not too baggy if you know what I mean? I will say, had I worn these with flats or sneakers, I would most definitely look like an oompa loompa. But wearing them with heels turned out to be okay and I’m happy to say I’ve finally embraced this trend I always wanted to try! So if you’ve been in the same boat as me, unable to find a pair that worked, I urge you to try American Eagle’s, you might just like them too!
