Don’t you sometimes envy men for their uber-comfortable wardrobe? Your boyfriend’s jeans were once just the summer’s it-item, but now it has become a wardrobe staple. They look great on all body types; you can wear them all day long and always be fashionable. It’s such a versatile item that you can wear it in a sport chic way or with a blazer and statement sandals to go out. For the summer, choose a more distressed pair of faded denim, while for the cold winter, choose a darker shade. Take a look at ways to sport your boyfriend’s denim this summer.
We’ve reached a skinny jean saturation point. Some people are bored with denim completely, while others have started wearing newer styles like boyfriend and mom jeans. Ashley Olsen recently stepped out wearing bootcut jeans, a look that we have not seen since before the rise and fall of UGGs. If you’re looking to add some variety into your denim collection, here are 20 skinny jean alternatives to add to your shopping list:
1. Moto Stripe Mom Jeans
If you find it hard to break away from your skinnies, Mom jeans have a similar slim cut but don’t squish your thighs. The stripe print is a fun idea.
2. Kick Boot Jeans
These are a modern update to the classic bootcut jeans. They’re slim through the knee with a slight flare at the bottom.
3. Straight-Fit Elly Jeans
These straight jeans are the slimmest legs you will see on this list. They’re the perfect style to cuff and show off your heels.
4. Denim Super Flare Jeans
Yes, you’re looking at a pair of flared jeans that aren’t from a vintage shop. They’re from Free People, so close enough. If you’re too intimidated to wear them every day, there is always Coachella.
5. 1969 Curvy Boot Jeans
If you’re a curvy girl, these bootcut jeans are cut to enhance your curves without that awkward gaping waistband. They also come in short and long inseams.
6. Ombré High-Waist Jeans
Who says that jeans have to be one color? We had ombré hair and nails, and now we have ombré mom jeans.
7. Flare Low Jeans
If you want to try a flared pair of jeans but don’t want a 70s vibe, this dark wash pair has just enough of a kick at the hem.
8. Petite Ripped Boyfriend Jeans
Attention petite girls, you don’t have to alter these jeans. They’re cut for girls 5’3 and under so you don’t have to worry about that ankle zipper messing up any hemming.
9. Inspire Bootcut Jeans
Thanks to the dark rinse and classic shape, you can probably get away with these jeans at work. For offices with stricter dress codes, it’s a good idea to save them for Casual Fridays.
10. Classic Distressed Boyfriend Jeans
Ripped jeans are a very popular denim trend at the moment. If you don’t want to DIY destroy your jeans, buy these ones.
11. Sailorette The Seas Jeans
Channel Popeye in a chic pair of sailor-inspired jeans. The relaxed cut will make your legs look supermodel long.
12. Jeweled Boyfriend Jeans
Who says ripped jeans are sloppy? These are embellished with clusters of rhinestones. Don’t the crystals look a bit like bees?
13. Boyfriend Patchy Jeans
Yes, you can absolutely wear white pants after Labor Day. The black patches on these pants make them feel less summery and add a DIY look.

18. Eastwood Jeans
These are as comfortable as the pair of jeans you’ve had in your closet for years but they aren’t faded. They’re as soft as sweatpants but look more pulled together.
19. Lady Teddy Ankle Boyfriend Jeans
Instead of constantly cuffing your boyfriend’s jeans, buy a cropped pair. Wear them with a pair of ankle boots and thick socks when it gets colder.
20. Boyfriend Jeans
Boyfriend jeans have a tendency to be distressed, ripped, and faded. If you’re looking for a crisp pair with a uniform wash, these are it.
