By Bianca London for MailOnline. When it comes to tracking down the perfect pair of jeans, there is no other piece of clothing that induces so much stress. As well as adhering to the style of the season flared? Perhaps, then, it comes as little surprise that a recent study by Tampax Compak Pearl found that 40 per cent of women struggle to find the perfect fit - and 15 per cent have even been reduced to tears in their efforts.

The Secret to Looking Good in Boyfriend Jeans
Do not breathe a word of this to my extensive skinny jeans collection but I may or may not have purchased a pair of boyfriend jeans. And I may have been very happy with said purchase. So happy in fact, I planned a whole outfit around said jeans on a recent work trip to Sydney.
I blame these jeans from Embody Denim for making me cheat on my skinnies. Turns out she did. So not really my everyday kind of wear. Ballets with these even rolled up looked a bit clown-like. And again. Mr SY even likes these. The lazy-girl in me kicked in. Much like this one time I was in New York …. Stay tuned for that report. The spa has already been booked for our arrival! Ok, so what say you re boyfriend jeans? What do you wear your boyfriends with?
What brand has worked for you? And how much do you love a statement shoe? Love this post Nikki! Will be adding the Chambrays to the list.
Nikki, you give good blog. Hi Nikki, I have just begun my first foray into skinny jeans…so I have loved your post me being a S16 gal also.
Am thinking of styling them also with a smart jacket and loose tank and wedges. Thanks for the great styling advice.. But I have a question about skinnies…. As a pear shape myself, I find they work for me as below my hips my legs are pretty good and I can balance out the top with a scarf or necklace.
Hope that helps. Looks awesome Nikki! Love how you rock the Mr Rose blouse — thanks for being such a fab donner!!! We are making more blouses for our next made to order season of GDG….. It does — except they never worked for me because the waist was too high — loved them on everyone else but looked ridiculous on me.
I say Oh yeah! Although I am starting to think you would look good in anything. You do realize that for the past 10 years I have been trying to convince my husband that wide leg pale washed jeans belong to ?
Thank god for the shoes, as if you had tried to tell us that Jerry Seinfeld sneakers were the go to accessory to make said jeans sparkle I may never trust you again. I am in a world of internal conflict over this alarming new trend….
I KNOW! They definitely work well with the pretty, feminine shirt though. And you have helped me feel comfortable in mine. It means I can embrace a whole new classy sometimes sassy and sexy me. Most of the time I stick with neutral shoes that go with everything.
I was happy to have a change. Are you happy with the tanks? They do what they say but look like a tank. Nikki that looks just sweet….. I love the boyfriend jean with the blazer look. I think I might treat myself a pair this week….. Bec ;. I however, cannot do a boyfriend jean. I look always look like a spinster farmer.
I need a weekend at QT Sydney more than I need boyfriend jeans! Love your fashion tips AND your travel tips xx. I just put my boyfriend jeans on about an hour and thought, I really need a new pair! Love QT! I have told my husband that I will go to the ski slopes with him next year, but o ly if we stay at QT Falls Creek. With the shoes, I am a little confused by the sizing. I buy a size 8, European 38, but the site says a size 8 is European What are your thoughts?
I love your QT logic there Thea! Dawn at AGLoveShoes would be more than willing to help you. I love this look on you. Statement shoes win every-time for me though, they can take an outfit from zero to hero in seconds.
Need to invest in a new bigger pair or start to exercise! Love your blog, it inspires me! I have been wearing boyfriend jeans a lot this season — mainly because my skinny jeans are all coloured… and I am moving back into a denim frame of mind…. I love the way you have styled these! Thanks B … my coloured jeans still come out to play a lot! Have printed ones on today. This jacket is unfortunately a dryclean only so I wear carefully.
My tip would be to find one that can be handwashed so that you can easily deal with stains at home. And yes, there are lots around! You look great Nikki! I am a convert to boyfriend jeans, but only wear with heels and I prefer something reasonably tailored or fitted on top, to keep the proportions right.
I have a pair of True Religion boyfriend jeans that look like they a bit less fabric in the lower leg than your Embody ones.
They are super comfy as they are a distressed denim and I think Jeans West do a cheaper version that would probably be worth a try, too. Am loving the boyfriend jeans. You look gorgeous!
I am currently on maternity leave at home with two little girls and I live in my boyfriend jeans! Skinny leggers are going out jeans! I cant crawl around the floor our under the kitchen table in my skinnies! Now the weather is hotting up I dont know what to wear! Im not really into shorts. I like being dressed so I can leave the house at any moment and feel OK with what I am wearing! Looking forward to future posts! Hi Michelle, my skinnies are actually stretch and they are as comfortable as trackies!
Great outfit Nikki. I think they are worth a look. I love a statement shoe however most statement shoes I have are now called dinner shoes, ie. I wear them to dinner where I walk from the car to the restaurant and back to the car. I love that you call statement shoes dinner shoes! I think I would have to team them with heels or run the risk of looking like the saggy baggy elephant. Wearing heels is generally not practical for me in this chapter of my life.
I get very few occasions to wear heels especially that would also be suitable to wear jeans. I think I will be happily sticking to my skinny jeans for now. Those shoes are gorgeous Nikki. Please Nikki, could you do a post on less expensive options? Sorry, Nikki. All I can do is continue to feature things for all kinds of budgets and hope that across the whole mix most people can find something that suits their needs. Me, I had the jacket and shirt in my wardrobe so just added the other bits.
I love your statement heels they are hot!
Keeping it Real: the boyfriend jeans outfit
Boyfriend jeans are a style that we all love and adore deep down, but finding the right pair for your body shape can be a task on its own. Some pairs of boyfriend jeans can really overwhelm you and swamp your body, while others are not flattering on the butt, look too sloppy or not very nice. The key to getting the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans that flatter and suit you is in choosing the right cut.
One tip: When you buy boyfriend jeans, size up so they hang a bit looser than normal. Look No. I like the mixed textures here: The jeans are embroidered up the sides, which goes nicely with the wide rib of the bodysuit fabric. And the proportions: The tight top plays well with the loose bottoms. You could wear this with literally any shoes in your closet.
The Best Boyfriend Jeans for Your Body Type
Be sure to also scroll to the bottom of this list, for tips that work for all women when you go shopping for boyfriend jeans. If you've got heavier thighs and would prefer to camouflage them, shop for boyfriend jeans that fit snugly at the hips and fall in a nice, straight line from hips right down to the hem. Dark wash jeans with a decent amount of stretch in the fabric are also a great choice for you. If you've got bigger thighs, skip boyfriend jeans with horizontal distressing on the legs because this can widen your body. Stick to cleaner styles, which bonus will also read as more sophisticated. Don't shy away from boyfriend jeans because you're plus size—this style can look fabulous on you. If you're on the shorter side, you might find it challenging to pull off a cropped and cuffed jean. Petite women can still rock boyfriend jeans, though, by choosing the appropriate fit and style. To keep your silhouette long and lean, choose a slim, darker wash boyfriend jean that's tapered toward the bottom of the legs.

Are my legs really that short?! The distressed areas on most jeans are supposed to fit a little above the knee. As you can see mine are almost below it. One of the main reasons why I love shopping at Nordstrom is because of their generous return policy. Do you guys have any secrets for picking out the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans?
I have vivid memories of my mum wearing classic Levi's jeans s, specifically — stonewashed, high-waisted with a button-fly and loose tapered legs in signature thick denim — throughout my childhood to do the gardening or take the dog on a muddy walk. These were the 'mom jeans' before mom jeans became a thing. She was right: they did.
Boyfriend Jeans and Short Girls….
Skip navigation! Story from Shopping. The thought of shopping for boyfriend jeans gives me an immediate headache.
If you want to show off your curvy hips, low-rise jeans are a great option. Just make sure they fit snugly at your hips to avoid the dreaded waist-gap problem. Athletic body types can also rock a mean low rise. Because you may not have the curve in your hips, the jeans may hang a little lower so make sure to choose a fitted style with stretch. This is the most figure-friendly rise out there; comfortable for all body types, and a bit of a secret weapon for all of us who want a little more structure around our midsection.
