The other thing I love about boyfriend jeans is that they look great on tall women. Now the average woman might retort “what doesn’t?” But us tall gals know that some trends don’t live up to the ‘model’ hype and any that do are canceled out by the spiral of depression we whip ourselves into when we search and search and search and can’t find that long torso swimsuit (that we love and doesn’t cost us an arm and a leg), or a simple pair of tall (no, not 34 inch inseam, but TALL) maternity pants, or a maxi dress that actually reaches our ankles! Oops; is my frustration seeping through?! My point is, when a trend is compatible with height, I’m all about jumping on the bandwagon.
Because we have long legs, we don’t have to worry about cuffed boyfriend jeans cutting us off at that awkward place on our calves and making us look short and, well, boyish. We can wear boyfriend jeans and still look sexy as all get out. It’s that kind of “white tee shirt” look guys claim is even more alluring than when we gals get all dolled up. The other attribute of boyfriend jeans is that they tend to have a bit of a higher rise than typical jeans. With our long torsos, the additional inch or two in the rise helps to balance our tall frames. And have I mentioned yet that this is the perfect transition piece into fall? If you buy them soon, you’ll still have plenty of wear left before I’m starting articles cursing the weather instead of reliving my “wonder years.”
With all of this said, don’t let me sell you on boyfriend jeans…see for yourself! Just try a pair on and you’ll see that this is one trend worth shopping for.
