Finding the right pair of boyfriend jeans can be quite a hassle, at least for me it is. Mainly because finding the right fit can be very frustrating. Either it's too tight to be considered "boyfriend" or the fit is just "off". It is common practice in the plus size world, to go a size up or two in order to achieve the desired loose fit. But there's a downside to that solution, since that baggy look can make us appear larger than we really are.
I personally like my boyfriend jeans to fit snug at the waist and hip and then loosely around the thighs and calf. I find that in order to achieve this, the denim has to have a bit of stretch.
If shopping around for a boyfriend jean, I would suggest trying it on in store. As a rule, I almost never buy jeans online since I have suffered from enough disappointing experiences to last me a lifetime. So when I find a piece that I like online, I call around until I find a store that has that piece for me to try on. Good news is, these days many stores offer a ship to store option were you can have their products shipped to a store near you. This boyfriend jean that I have on is by Torrid and they have several options available.
The sleeveless coat is becoming a sensation these days and I am feeling this sensation. I am wearing a size large in this piece which is great as a layer but will not provide much shelter once it actually gets really cold. But try a large in straight sizes for sleeveless coats.
P.S: I got an overwhelming number of people asking about where to purchase the dress from my last post (here). So I decided to start linking the pieces seen on the blog and also finding similar pieces for those interested.
