I’ve always found boyfriend jeans to be extremely hard to wear. The extra bagginess and slouchy design seems to add weight visually in all the wrong places. Still, the effortlessly-cool, downtown look that some women achieve while wearing boyfriend jeans is something I would love to adopt. One of the season’s newest denim trends–girlfriend jeans–may be the answer for those like me. Cut with a slimmer hip and leg, girlfriend jeans still give off a relaxed, cool-girl vibe but with much less fabric to add girth in all the wrong places. Grab a pair in a light or distressed wash (another trend for fall) or a dark wash that easily dresses up. And if you’re pregnant, this is an especially comfortable, figure-flattering fit for those first few post-delivery weeks.
