Vintage 501

The idea of wearing boyfriend jeans never appealed to me. Not because I don't like them, I do, but I've always thought you need to be really skinny to look good in them.

However, lately I'm thinking of getting a pair of vintage Levi's 501 to wear with slouchy striped sweaters on my lazy days. Furthermore, Lulu of Everybody is ugly* or Alexander Wang prove you can stay chic with baggy jeans.

The Alexander Wang collection actually inspired me to steal the jeans right out of my boyfriend's closet. I really loved that collection. :)

Those look nice. I actually don't think you need to be really skinny to wear them ;) As long as you combine them with something a bit more tight on top, or as you said, a slouchy sweater, I think they will look just fine!

i did the same considering lately.
but i think i will go to any thriftstores to get some worn old ones that i can cut of the legs in summer...

That girl in the first pic looks so effortlessly cool in her bf jeans.

Btw, wow that YSL exhibition you mentioned in your last post sounded amazing.

i think it'll look good on a slim body and skinny tops.

I agree with you, jeans are for skinny people. I love them

chloe said...

I am not skinny at all and I have tried some jeans of my boyfriend and I think they are cool with heels
