Megan Styled: The Boy Jean

This summer has officially been my summer of the Boy Jean. I felt it appropriate to share what has been a go-to staple with you especially since this staple can transition perfectly in to cooler days.

Up North during the summer there is nothing more important than having great jeans. Everywhere I go even if I start out in a dress or shorts, I have a pair of jeans and sweatshirt with me. What I have loved this year about the boy jean is that whether I am heading to the beach for a bonfire or meeting a client for drinks, this jean will rock it out hard for me. Pair them with a favorite button down, a simple t-shirt, a crop top, or a drapey tank. Dress them up with a heel, ankle boot, or a simple sandal.

Not only are they versatile, but the relaxed style has been great on warm days. There is nothing I hate more than wearing something skin tight after a day of sweating. With working out so much this summer, I have been really into slipping these on after I clean up from a workout. They feel relaxed enough but are not my harem sweatpants I slip on when I wake up in the morning.

It sounds nuts but I have about 3 pairs now. Some are real boy jeans from Goodwill but this pair is from the new Madewell Denim line for fall, and I can’t get enough of them. I wore them all during Mille to give them a solid road test and sure enough they didn’t disappoint: Still fit like a glove and not to mention are comfier than the first time I slipped them on. They are the perfect pair for fall if you are looking for your next fave denim purchase.

  1. I love boyfriend jeans. I have one pair that I wear constantly. This summer I finally purchased overalls from Madewell and basically don’t want to take them off! I was so happy to find out that Nashville is finally getting a Madewell store this fall.

  2. It’s not an exaggeration to say I’ve spent the entire summer looking for the perfect pair of boy jeans. Turns out unlike with skinny jeans, you really need to find the right pair for your body shape. No luck so far, but Madewell has never done me wrong with denim in the past so I might give these a try, thanks!

  3. I love those jeans! Wish we had Madewell here in Spain, I definitely miss that store.
    I was planning on buying a pair of jeans like that for fall actually, since right now it´s way to warm for them.

    I´m looking forward to a burgundy, cozy sweater too 🙂
