Skinny jeans have become a fashion staple for women all over the world. Unfortunately, they are not flattering for every body type. The fact that skinny jeans do not look good on you does not mean that you cannot rock a pair of jeans, you just have to find the right one- like boyfriend jeans.
As the name suggests boyfriend jeans are made to look like men’s trousers but for ladies. Boyfriend jeans are easy to spot because they are loose compared to skinny jeans. However, they should not be confused with mom jeans.
Mom jeans have a high waist and get narrower from the thigh to the ankle. Boyfriend jeans on the other hand fit lower on the waist and the legs are more straight.
