Boyfriend Jeans

I usually wear darker wash denim but I like the light washes hitting the stores. Instead of forking over of a new pair of jeans, I raided the local Goodwill.

Jeans: Merona via Goodwill
Tank: Wet Seal
Top: Goodwill
Booties: Crossroads Clothing Co.
Cuff: Lauren Harkness

I found a super comfy pair of light jeans and I cuffed them like the boyfriend jeans in the stores. I couldn’t resist this mesh top so I picked it up while I was thrifting. It’s got a nice ’80s vibe to it.

To make this retro outfit a bit more modern, I paired it with booties. In the 80s, I’d probably have worn pointy bright flats.

I like incorporating styles from the past when they’re flattering and relevant but I always like keeping the look fresh with new twists.

What styles of bygone years do you like?

I’ve joined Visible Monday again today! Check out what everyone else is wearing.

  1. Love these lighter-wash jeans (and the cuffing – just right). You look great and thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

  2. Too funny, I am wearing my cuffed boyfriend jeans today for hanging out and crafting with my niece… Great creativity in creating these! Will be posting my outfit tomorrow on my blog…

  3. Very nice, all the contrasts. The boots are perfect, and give an even more fragile-feminine feel to the mesh top. Effective!

  4. I love mesh and lace–great for wearing over a tank top!

    • I agree! It’s funny: “Mesh and lace” is part of a line in a Modern English song called Melt with You. It’s also a song title by the same band. I wonder why they mentioned it twice. Hmm.

      • Funny! I haven’t heard the songs. I’ve always liked mesh and lace, that’s why I liked the top at the flea market in Brooklyn, too bad it was so expensive. 😦

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
