Boyfriend jeans are no new trend to the fashion game, but can sometimes be a tricky look to balance. Their loose fit threatens to mask femininity, but when balanced just right can look as ladylike as ever. Here are a few tips for giving your boyfriend jeans a touch of femininity:

1. All boyfriend jeans are not created equal - While I love the oversized look too, sometimes slimmer-cut boyfriend jeans are the perfect way to warm up to the trend. A happy medium between skinny jeans and oversized, this pair has a slimmer fit with slightly tapered ankles. It’s the best of both worlds: the true look and comfort of boyfriend jeans without sacrificing a feminine silhouette.

2. Dress up your boyfriend jeans -  Boyfriend jeans shouldn’t be saved for casual outfits only. The slimmer cut of these boyfriend jeans can make an outfit feel higher-end. Paired with a heel and feminine accessories, these boyfriend jeans are anything but masculine. 

3. Every boyfriend jean deserves a chance - The best part of these slimmer-cut boyfriend jeans is the price tag. A successful pair of boyfriend jeans isn’t always the most expensive pair. Target’s extensive collection of jeans makes this trend available to every budget and every taste. From cut to color, you are bound to find something you will love.

Here are a few more styles I'm loving: this distressed pair and this high waisted light wash. You can find your personal style @targetstyle. For more tips on making your denim work for you, see my tips on perfecting your distressed denim here.
