How To Wear Boyfriend Jeans – 20 Stylish Options

The boyfriend jeans have been around for far less time than their skinny or slim-fit counterparts, yet they have reached the same levels of devotion from fashion aficionados everywhere. And, just as skinny jeans are pretty much immortal by now, boyfriend jeans are also on their way to achieving this status – they will be forever in style!

Read on for a few tips on how to wear boyfriend jeans:

How To Wear Boyfriend Jeans #1:

Dressing Them Up

Dressing up your boyfriend jeans can make you feel both put together and comfortable at the same time. In fact, you could sneakily style them in such a way that they become appropriate for work – why not?

A) With Pumps Or Stilettos

Pair boyfriend jeans with a sweater and with pumps or stilettos for the quintessential fall ensemble. Add a (preferably) oversized coat on top to transition this look into the upcoming winter.

B) With High Heel Sandals

This is the perfect combination for summer days! A pair of boyfriend jeans looks effortless even with high heel sandals. As for the upper part, a band or vintage T-shirt add that extra dose of chicness.

How To Wear Boyfriend Jeans #2:

Dressing Them Down

We might as well call this the lazy girl’s guide to effortless dressing, since these are obvious (but oh-so cool!) pairings.

A) With (Ballet) Flats

Ideal for extra-long shopping sessions or for any activities that involve a lot of standing and walking. Consider pairing boyfriend jeans with flats when you are exploring a new city on foot and you want to look fabulous in EVERY picture.

B) With Sneakers

Are you into the whole normcore craze? Then this combination should be way up your alley. Worn with slip-ons or sneakers, boyfriend jeans are casual enough to look unpretentious. To polish things up just a bit, add a tee and a blazer – easy and sooo comfortable!

Get Her Colorful Look – Lupita Nyong’o Style!

Recently named “The Most Beautiful Woman” by People, the Oscar-winning actress has more qualities up her sleeve than just beauty and talent. Namely, her bold fashion choices, which are wildly admired whenever she makes an appearance on a red carpet or at events across the globe.

Lupita Nyong’o is one of the few people you’ll never see wearing something dull or repetitive. She often wears bold pieces in expert color combinations with an effortless attitude and otherworldly grace. And this particular look is no exception. While attending the opening of the first Bally flagship store in London, Lupita opted for a mix of fresh colors topped off with a burgundy coat and peep toe sandals.

For the occasion, the actress wore a total Bally spring 2015 look in shades of burgundy, pale pink, green and yellow. It may sound like a lot, but it clearly isn’t. The burgundy and the pink dominate the look, while the single yellow and green touches shake things up just enough to reveal a fun, yet polished look.

The Lupita Nyong’o Style Tip:

Build your outfit starting with one or two main colors. If you feel like it, add some accessories in one or two secondary hues (a belt, earrings etc). However, try to keep the maximum number of colors in your look around (or under) 4. Otherwise, you risk overcrowding it – not fun!

Hats For Fall 2014 – What And How To Wear

What’s the no. 1 cold weather accessory you should never be without? If you answered hats, you’re right! Clearly, scarves and gloves don’t fall back behind, but there’s nothing like a chic and cozy hat (or beret!) to keep your head from freezing over during those early fall mornings.

So let’s see which are your best choices for fall. Ahead, three types of cold weather hats that successfully tick off both the coolness and the practical requirements on the list.

Hats Fall 2014: Beanies

What a no-brainer, right? Beanies are ridiculously easy to find and to incorporate in an outfit. You can pair them with dresses, jeans, heels or sneakers for an instant boost of coolness. Choosing a black beanie is always a safe bet, but only unusual colors will truly make you the center of attention. A neon beanie, for example, looks fantastic when paired with a dark or gray ensemble. Also, for a bad-ass look, pair any type of beanie with leather leggings and an oversized cardigan or blazer.

Hats Fall 2014: Structured Hats

From wide-brim hats to fedoras or boater hats, the options are pretty much endless. A simple, structured hat goes perfectly with high heels or with sneakers and it adds a feminine touch to any outfit. For an out-of-the-box look, wear a red fedora with a matching lipstick and keep the rest of the ensemble easy and simple. If you’re going for a more sophisticated look, a fine fedora, some kick-ass leather leggings, high heels and a faux fur should do the trick. Bonus points if the result is an all-black look. Hot!

Hats Fall 2014: Berets

Berets might have been MIA until now, but they are surely coming back in style! For the Fall/Winter 2014 season, numerous designers (Rodarte, Ermanno Scervino, Ralph Lauren) have sent berets down the runway and the result was stunning! Paired either with skirts of with trousers, we have to give it to them: berets definitely look modern and cool again. For a day-to-day look, pair your beret with a skirt and a sweater – so easy, right? Add a leather jacket to the mix to balance out the look and you should be good to go. Paris, here we cooome!

The Natural Makeup Look: 5 Steps To Perfection

Always in style, the natural makeup look is, in most cases, harder to prepare than other daytime or evening looks. Why? Because it takes quite a bit of time (and effort!) to perfectly conceal any trace of visible makeup so that the end result it a natural, almost barefaced, I woke up like this look.

The 5 Steps To Achieve A Natural Makeup Look:

Step 1: Start With A Flawless Base

A perfect makeup starts with a sound base. A natural makeup look is no different, but keep in mind that you will add very little on top of it – so take special care at this step. In order to get that natural-looking skin, start with your usual moisturizer. Apply it to your clean face and let it set in. Then go over with the tiniest amount of foundation and add more if necessary. Remember you can use your fingers instead of a brush for a more credible result. Finally, gently conceal any spots for an even-looking result.

Step 2: A Little Bit Of Brow TLC

Even if you are going for a natural makeup look, do not ignore the brows! Comb them in place and fix them with a transparent brow gel. You might want to skip going in with color, but this is totally up to you. If filling in your brows is part of your regular routine, feel free to lightly, lightly do it now as well.

Step 3: The Eyes

The most important step, the eye makeup (or lack of it thereof!) will make or break the look. To make them stand out without any visible effort, tightline them carefully with a brown or black eyeliner, depending on the color of your natural hair. Then, finish off with a fine swipe of mascara – one coat, just one coat. Remember, you don’t want it to look like you’ve actually put any effort into it at all. Wink!

Step 4: The Lips

For the natural makeup look, the lips are better left bare. A bit of transparent lip balm should suffice to give them some sheen. If you want to even them out and make them match your skin tone, you can dab a small quantity of concealer before applying the balm: simple and subtle! Of course, a “your lips, but better” lipstick can also look good – just keep the color light and almost unnoticeable.

Step 5: Highlight

No makeup is complete without a dab of highlighter, and this one is no exception. Use a liquid highlighter to add a simple glow to your cheekbone, nose and brow-bone areas. Remember to carefully blend and smooth everything out and to go in with a light hand at all times. Keywords: dewy and effortless – these are very essence of the natural makeup look.

Nicole Richie Style – Daytime Chic. Get The Look!

Sure, we all love emerald. But, when it comes to integrating it into daily wear, it can be quite a challenge – if you’re not Nicole Richie, that is. Besides her candy-colored hair, the star is also famous for her impeccable fashion taste (she does have her own successful fashion house after all!) and here’s a look to prove it:

Nicole Richie is Candidly Chic

This October, Nicole Richie shows us how daytime chic is properly done with a look that is laid-back and elegant at the same time. To start off, she paired a simple silk top in a flashy color with a pair of black pants with fine golden detailing. Next, she chose a classic pair of black court shoes to add a feminine touch. As for the accessories, she kept them low-key. A simple cocktail ring with black details graces one of her hands and a tiny silver cuff is barely visible on her ear.

And now, the final tip to achieve the Nicole Richie style: a covered up look like this one may seem overcrowded at times, especially if it includes a long-sleeved turtleneck blouse like Nicole’s. To prevent this, pull all your hair back in a slick bun. As a beauty trick, go for a bold cat eye, to make the look even edgier.
