Here’s how it goes down…  You see people killin it in their boyfriend jeans, you’re feeling inspired, and you think hey I’m gonna go get a pair of my own…you go to try some on expecting to look all cute casual and relaxed, but it doesn’t go exactly as planned…

What was once some resemblance of a butt has disappeared, and you somehow look like you just insta gained 20 lbs?  WTF right?

Don’t worry slim boyfriend to the rescue.  While true boyfriend jeans can be awesome when you find that perfect fit, sometimes you can get lost inside the super wide leg, and look a little too sloppy.

With a slim boyfriend you still get that laid back slouchy look, but the fit is slightly more tapered throughout the leg.  Going for a pair that is distressed with a lighter wash will play up the boyfriend jean look even more.  If a clean dark wash is more your thing there are slim boyfriend’s for that too.

Most slim boyfriend jeans have less elastic and more cotton than your skinny jeans, so keep in mind they will stretch out as you wear them.  I really like the way the Joe’s i’m wearing in these photos have stretched, especially from the knees up, giving a  more relaxed look and comfortable feel.

Perfect for loitering around the alley ways of Beverly Hills…
