Stylist Saturday: Girlfriend Jeans

August 5, 2017



Recently, I was shopping with my sister-in-law, looking for jeans.  We were on the hunt for boyfriend jeans.  Boyfriend jeans are a relaxed cut, with a little more room in the thigh and butt.  I’ve always loved them!  But, when we got to Banana Republic and Gap, we found the “girlfriend” jean.  


I had never inquired the difference between the two types of jeans so, I asked.  The sales person at Banana Republic told me “girlfriend jeans are much like boyfriend jeans but, straighter.”  I bought a pair of distressed girlfriend jeans that day and have been loving them.  But, here is a more detailed description of the “girlfriend” fit.


Topshop jeans buyer, Keda Rich, explains in Marie Claire that,



the “girlfriend” (jean) is a more feminine version of the boyfriend jean cut.  It’s a


more classic fit – tighter and higher on the hip, with a tapered slim straight leg. Made from more ridged denim, the style is more authentic and offers a flattering shape.”


I liked these jeans so much, I went and bought a darker denim in the girlfriend fit, too!  So, when you are out back-to-school shopping with the kids, grab a pair of girlfriend jeans and try them on.  You may love them, too!


Happy Ward-robing!
