Why do (most) boyfriends absolutely detest boyfriend jeans? I mean...they were named after you, the least you could do is show a little respect to the boyfriends of the world that clothe your beloved lady friends. Especially the ones that your girlfriend spent a small fortune on...
I hadn't even had these bad boys on for a full 60 seconds when Marcus shot down my outfit with a, "you should really wear skinny jeans instead." Obviously men like jeans that accentuate your assets (emphasis on the ass) rather than these; but what they simply can't grasp is the idea that sometimes wearing jeans that don't cut off circulation to my feet/brain/sanity is a good thing. Don't get me wrong, a closet isn't complete without skinny jeans in every single color you can get your hands on, but boyfriend jeans are also a necessity for those days you feel like being comfortable.
Which leads me to the belief that comfort is a state of mind; meaning that state can change from person to person. I understand that some girls always feel comfortable in skinny jeans. Your physical state can be your reason for comfortability but one can contest that your mental or emotional state can add to your comfortable mind set, as well. Confidence and comfortability go hand in hand in my little world of fashion. If an item of clothing makes you feel confident and beautiful then in turn, you will feel comfortable. If you're wearing something that you think doesn't feel right or look right on you, you're going to feel like shit.
So the moral of my rambling is to wear clothes that make you feel comfortable and confident. Dressing like a boy in boyfriend jeans and a blazer made me feel comfortable, but what made me feel feminine and confident was pairing them with heels and a clutch. Try it, it works.
