Street Style Trend Report: Boyfriend Jeans, Body Chains and Off-The-Shoulder Tops

Boyfriend Jeans: This menswear-inspired trend has been hot since 2009 when actress Katie Holmes stepped out in what appeared to be a pair of jeans straight from her now ex-husband’s closet. Often distressed, loose and cuffed at the bottom, this trend provides comfort as well as a chic style for any woman.

How To Style: Try pairing these loose-fitting bottoms with a tight (white or striped) cotton t-shirt, and some pointed flats for a casual look or some pointed strappy sandals and a plain blouse for an evening look. Keep the attention on your jeans by keeping all other clothes simple, and keep accessories to a minimum. You can mix and match these two ideas like Rihanna and Miley did; with a tight tee and pointed heels or mix it up the other way like how Miranda Kerr paired hers with a simple blouse but casual sneakers.

How to Style: Try a bold look by pairing a gold body chain under a white croptop and white high-waisted jeans. For a simpler look, simply pair it with some denim shorts and a black crop, or even with a simple bikini.

How To Style: Rock this look by pairing your top either with a pair of washed-out flare jeans and wedges for a more elegant look or follow in Jenner’s footsteps and pair it with layered necklaces and some patterned wide-legged pants.
