No we’re not turning into transvestites, we just love all things boyfriend-related… I guess.
Following the boyfriend top – you know, the big-ish checkered button downs – trend, we now move on to jeans. I’m guessing some trendsetter loved seeing a pair of worn out jeans on her man so much she wanted one for herself (either she took his or bought small-sized pair).
But let’s not talk about the boyfriend jeans’ origins. Instead, let’s talk about this new trend that already has names like Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham among its legions of fans, and where you can get one just the right one, short of raiding your boyfriend’s closet.
