TREND: Not Your Boyfriend’s Jeans

Living in New York City has taught me to become more independent overall; with the whole city at my fingertips, there is hardly time to ask permission, or gain approval. At this age, who wants to settle down anyways? As the fiercest of Fashionistas know, what you wear portrays a particular attitude — and that makes every day a fashion show. This perspective is not for the timid; therefore, when I encounter a fellow Fashionista who does her own thing, I can’t help but feel a sense of camaraderie.

I ran into this New York City Fashionista on my way to Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee in the West Village. When she told me she was a Miami native, I understood why she had such a penchant for bright colors, like the tank she was wearing from Urban Outfitters. But, her perfectly worn-in and perfectly faded boyfriend jeans are what really caught my attention. Purchased from Joe’s Jeans, this Fashionista casually threw them on in anticipation for a big day of shopping ahead. She told me of her plans to stop by the Proezna Schouler sample sale that took place on July 27th, which I had visited earlier that day. Her other stops included All Saints, Top Shop, Brandy Melville, and of course, Bloomingdales. Boyfriend Jeans are great to run around in during the summer because since they’re so loose, they won’t get too warm even in the heat. As an added bonus, faded denim goes with just about anything you wanted to pair it with. This Fashionista chose to accessorize with newly bought grey TOMS, Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses, and the two Jennifer Zeuner necklaces she wears every day. Lastly, I personally was completely envious of her brown leather cross body satchel designed by Linea Pelle, it had silver studded detailing on the strap that was just too cool.

Hint: For a great pair of boyfriend Jeans you can wear through to the fall, check out the denim company Current/Eliott, sold at stores like Henry Lehr on Prince Street.
