Make Your Boyfriend Jeans Sexy

Just like an outfit doesn’t need to show a ton of skin to be sexy, a pair of thoughtfully styled boyfriend jeans can look just as hot as skinny jeans do. In other words: you can opt for comfort, and still look like a total babe. To illustrate the point, here are some ensembles that show just how easy it is to make your boyfriend jeans look sexy!

Lovable Outfit Ideas

You’re smitten with a holiday that is completely dedicated to love, and I think your Valentine’s Day outfit should be completely lovable too. Here are four romantic looks that are guaranteed to create the perfect love story.

Luxe Effect

Adding a bit of rich texture can immediately make your outfit feel luxe. A velvet pant, skirt, cape, or top pairs easily with your basics, such as jeans, tees, and trousers.

lovableideas-Luxe-VanessaJackman

Try a rich palette of dark red, navy, black, or softer hues like cream or peach.

lovableideas-Luxe

Rag & Bone Roseburg velvet blazer $550

A Pop Of Red

The hue is striking paired with all-black, and also totally unexpected teamed with a softer palette of creams and faded florals.

lovableideas-red-blondesalad

The Blonde Salad

splash of red can be just the right amount of color for an otherwise softer palette. A punchy red lipstick, a sharp red heel, or a bold red clutch feels festive, but not overwhelming.

lovableideas-touchofred

Charlotte Olympia Pandora Perspex clutch $975

The LBD

A Valentine’s Day dinner date is the perfect time to bring out your sexy little black dress.

lovableideas-LBD-WeWoreWhat

We Wore What

Try to balance your look so that it’s equal parts demure (a fuller skirt or rounded collar) and daring (a short hem or nipped-in waist).

lovableideas-LBD - Cropped

Diane Von Furstenberg Angelica ruched mini dress $225

Whimsical

Prints are very romantic!

lovableideas-whimsical-CollageVintage

To add a touch of whimsy, throw on a printed heel! Try a floral, polka dot, or stripe.

Givenchy Floral print leather pumps $620

How do you make your outfit Lovable?

Layer Your Coat

During the brisk months ahead, It’s recommended that you build your outfit around your outerwear. To show you how it’s done, I’m peeling back the layers of 7 different coat-centric looks.

layercoat-3

A bold evening coat looks great with a cocktail dress, but try taking it out of its element with a pair of worn-in boyfriend jeans and a knit cap.

Alice + Olivia Shawl Collar Coat ($898); Joe’s Jeans Tux Tee Shirt ($88); Big Star Rolled Slim Jeans ($142); Gap Chevron Hat ($20); Loeffler Randall Rider Bag($650); Bruno Magli Kitten Heels ($595).

layercoat-1

A sleeveless plaid coat serves as an excellent layering piece over a jacket. Balance the coat’s longer length with a sleek biker jacket that rests at the hips.

Phillip Lim Cape Vest ($895); Phillip Lim Biker Jacket ($1,695); Chaser Tank ($60); Blank NYC Skinny Jeans ($88); BCBG MAXAZRIA Knit Hat ($68); Annelise Michelson Necklace ($420); Rag & Bone Pilot Bag ($925); Dolce Vita Quid Heels ($209).

layercoat-7

The peacoat is an outerwear crowd pleaser, it goes with everything. Since the piece itself is a bit understated, add interest to your look with a mix of textures and prints.

A.L.C. Cannady Peacoat ($795); LOFT Stripe Sweater Tee ($40); Joe’s Jeans Dandy Woven Shirt ($168); Lover Mini Skirt ($400); A.P.C.Chain Strap Bag ($620); HUE Opaque Tights ($14); Giuseppe Zanotti Boots ($1,895).

layercoat-6

The long and short of it: an ankle-grazing coat functions as the perfect balance for a minidress and combat boots.

Mara Hoffman Coat (similar style here); Guess Denim Skirtall($108); Rag & Bone Marigold Top ($290); The 2 Bandits Wharf Earrings ($128); Rachel Zoe Montana Backpack ($395); Burberry Silk Scarf ($495, similar style here); HUE Luster Tights ($14); Rag & Bone Boots ($595).

layercoat-2

Pink is the new black, so treat this fuzzy coat as a neutral with washed-out skinny jeans and a muted plaid shirt.

H&M Coat ($149); Equipment Cardigan ($318); April, May Top ($209, similar style here); McGuire Boyfriend Jeans ($218, 877.746.7267, similar style here); The Elder Statesman Cashmere Beanie ($270); DKNY Crossbody Bag ($265, similar style here); Paul Smith Loafers ($437).

layercoat-4

The quickest way to toughen up a menswear coat: add a biker vest on top. To further the look’s no holds barred vibe, throw on a sheer lace blouse and metallic heels.

Tibi Moto Vest ($950, 212.226.5852, similar style here); BLK DNM Coat ($1,195); 7 For All Mankind Lace Top ($218); Triarchy Tie Dye Jeans ($245, similar style here); Gucci  Sunglasses ($345); French Connection Bag ($348); Fendi T-Strap Pumps($1,190).

layercoat-5

Hit on the season’s grunge look, while simultaneously indulging your daring side, by pairing a faux fur coat with a plaid oxford, zipper-detail skinnies, and printed ankle boots.

Opening Ceremony Cocoon Coat ($795); Juicy Couture Sheer Plaid Blouse ($108); Paige Denim Skinny Coated Jeans ($269); Chloè Tote ($2,320); Shoe Cult Chelsea Boots ($120).

Are you Coat-Centric?
