Beat Your Boyfriend: How To

Boyfriend jeans. It seems that everywhere I turn, a pair of boyfriend jeans are right there staring back at me. I purchased my beloved pair on a weekend trip to Melbourne and have been living in them ever since.

Now ladies, these are not your typical pair of baggy jeans, the boyfriend jean has an amazing versatility to be worn practically all year round. So for someone like me, who withholds a serious obsession this is exciting news! However, as Spring has sprung here in Australia I will definitely be wearing my boyfriend jeans one of three ways..

Kicking off at number one, a minimalistic pair of heels with a boyfriend jean is the definition of relaxed chic. This is perfect for a sunny spring brunch with your girlfriends, movie dates with your boyfriend and everything else in between.

At number one for sheer practicality and comfort, boyfriend jeans and sneakers are a match made in heaven. This combination is perfect for long days of shopping (in my case, shopping marathons), spring trips to the beach and warm bike rides with friends.

Finally at number three, boyfriend jeans and statement flats are perfect for those events where you’re not exactly sure on the dress code. This can be either dressed up with a blazer, clutch and rose gold necklace or dressed down with a baggy T-shirt and a messy bun.

Floral Flurry

Here’s one for all you daring fashion girls out there! A two piece floral suit is definitely a statement piece and isn’t for the faint hearted.

The key to pulling off the floral suit is balance, do not over do the look! For example if you were sporting a floral suit with yellow undertones don’t opt for a statement pair of fluro yellow shoes or a heavily embellished top. Instead subtly compliment the yellow under tones with something else yellow like a ring or necklace, such as the necklaces below. Necklaces such as these subtly accentuate the colour without making the outfit over-the-top.

Wearing a floral suit is all about confidence, without it you have no hope of pulling it off! Be bold ladies and embrace your inner fashion monster because without it we’d all be wearing potato sacks! Pair the suit with a pair of minimalist black heels and a shoulder bag of your choice, then accessorise to your hearts desire! After all, fashion should reflect who you are.
