A real boyfriend?

I must be on Bebe’s mailing list because I get updates on their new arrivals from time to time. Today’s news struck me as funny: the introduction of Bebe’s new skinny boyfriend jeans with all the detail of classic boyfriend jeans all wrapped up in a skinny jean. Huh? What’s wrong with this picture? The big sell? Boyfriend jeans that actually flatter! But doesn’t that defeat the whole purpose of wearing boyfriend jeans? Those over-sized, comfy jeans that are one size too big for you and are actually meant to look like your boyfriend’s jeans. A skinny jean is just a skinny jean. If you’ll excuse the pun, I don’t think Bebe’s idea has legs!

Is this a fashion crisis? No. Is it life-altering? No. Am I freaking out about it? No. Because the truth is that I won’t be wearing boyfriend jeans of any kind – skinny or traditional non-skinny – now or ever. They’re not flattering for my body type. But I do mind that they’re calling them something they’re not. Boyfriend jeans are the opposite of skinny jeans. Let’s remember – a real boyfriend is authentic and can be elusive.

  1. I don’t know. There are some days that I would enjoy wearing clothes that are comfortable and casual yet are still flattering. I kind of like these more than the originals. I had to buy extra small boyfriend jeans just to remotely fit my hips.

    • Thank you Hannah, for your comments. I appreciate them. I think it’s very hard to find a true boyfriend jean that is flattering and it doesn’t surprise me that you had to go to x small to find one that fits. But I’m glad you did! Enjoy them! xx Mel
