I don’t need to tell you that a good boyfriend can be hard to find. So when I stumbled on the ideal version, I had to share. The slim boyfriend jean at Uniqlo checks all the boxes for me on what makes a great boyfriend jean.
They’re flattering– not too tight, not too baggy and hold their shape well. The rise is a bit below the belly button. Both shades of “blue” are versatile with just a bit of distressing. They hit me right at my ankles– perfect with boots, booties, heels and sneakers. And you can’t beat the price at under $40.
They run pretty true to size. If you’re between sizes, you might want to size up like I did to get more of a boyfriend fit. The smaller size worked, but fit more like a slim straight jean. For reference, I’m 5’9″ and somewhere in the middle in terms of the hip-to-waist ratio spectrum– not super straight or super curvy.
I’m not ready to break-up with my skinny jeans just yet, but for a change I’m really digging how these skim rather than hug my curves.
