I’m sharing how I wore my Bohemian Traders Boyfriend Jeans for a day spent running errands and a sunny Saturday with my Blokefolk.
Bohemian Traders Boyfriend Jeans | How To Wear
I have to admit, at first I struggled a little bit with the high waist and relaxed leg combo of the Bohemian Traders Boyfriend Jeans. I’ve embraced the mid rise waist of a skinny jean as the perfect antidote to a muffin top with a long top. I’ve embraced the oversized men’s jean worn low on the hips held up with a belt, pegged legs and with a fitted top. Combining the two was challenging.
My solution has been to pull up the jeans higher than I usually would and layer under a longer more loose fitting top. This works because the tapering of the Bohemian Traders Boyfriend Jeans are more forgiving than my usual boyfriend jean – an actual pair of men’s jeans belted and pegged. It also works because the Bohemian Traders Boyfriend Jeans don’t require a belt to hold them up, because they are actually designed to fit a woman’s body. Who knew?
Alternatively, I wear the Bohemian Traders Boyfriend Jeans just under my belly button (crucially over the hips to prevent muffin toppage) and instead of tucking a corner of my top into the waistband, I tuck into the front pocket instead. Definitely more flattering.
Bohemian Traders Boyfriend Jeans | Retro Cute
The comfort extended to hair styling – dirty hair and a vintage silk scarf is a match made in retro cute heaven. I added an Olive* pair of Mox for even more comfort (and perfect for the rainy weather too), amped up the retro cute with my Erstwilder Anchor earrings* from Vintage Pip and added a Leaf & Feather long beaded necklace. I grabbed my Mimco Tattoo Bubble bag in Seafoam as I was running out the door and Bob’s your auntie’s live in lover.
Bohemian Traders Boyfriend Jeans | Metallic Glam
We hit the movies with Boyo and his best mate. The LEGO movie, just quietly. Do yourself a favour – go and see it. No need to take kids with you. It is that good!
My Metalicus swing tank has a flattering racer back cut and looked fab with the Bohemian Traders Boyfriend Jean – the combination of the fitted bust and the shaped hem worked back really well with the relaxed cut of the jeans.
The gorgeous Sass & Bide metallic gold and black knit was a thrifted bargain and will be worn over and over again. It’s such a simple piece yet the luxe fabric and detailed mesh knit give it a glamorous edge.
Such a gorgeous piece makes enough of a statement, so I teamed with simple jade resin earrings* from Each to Own, my Mimco Jalabee watch and some Usual Suspects silver bangles – a Mimco Precious piece I received for my Big Four Oh My Gods, the Tiffany & Co piece I received for my 30th birthday, and the lovely Popbasic Wishbone bracelet from the Sunday collection.
A pair of black suede Albert slippers from Shubar completed my look. The velvety suede worked back beautifully with the luxe metallic knit.
