10 Aug The Perfect Boyfriend Jeans
In just over three years, I went from being the girl with no denim jeans to the girl with over ten pairs of denim jeans. Whether it’s skinny or boyfriend, tight or wide, fitted or loose, if there is one thing I have learnt is that good quality premium denim brands is where the perfect fit lives.
The majority of my denim collection is made up of dark wash skinny jeans, because it was simply easier to start there. If you have a booty, skinny jeans and their stretch are a godsend and finding a pair of boyfriend fit denim jeans in raw denim that accommodate booty seems like an unconquerable challenge. That was until I found these G-Star RAW Arc 3D low boyfriend jeans on Superbalist.
Given my proclivity for dark washes, I’m really surprised how quickly these jeans have become one of my favourite pair of denims. Since receiving them, I have worn them almost everyday from meetings to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town to drinks with friends. Casual and cool because of the low waist and slightly dropped crotch, I can categorically state that these jeans are the perfect boyfriend fit because of how they narrow from knee to hem in a ‘corkscrew’ manner thus slimming the leg all because of the G-Star RAW 3D Arc design.
The relaxed attitude of these jeans makes them super versatile and easy to style up or down. By simply wearing a different pair of shoes with your denims you can take a similar look from weekday to weekend and still look dressed up if you wear a blazer, because there is nothing more effortlessly stylish than a pair of denims worn with a simple tee and blazer.
“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.”
