Wanting to revamp your wardrobe? Get your hands on the chicest and comfiest staple- the boyfriend jeans.

Boyfriend jeans have been the 'new kid on the block' for quite some time now. Not only do they look chic on all body types, they're also super comfortable. You can simply throw on a plain black tank top with a pair of ripped navy blue boyfriend jeans and you are all set for the 'gram.

Interestingly, this isn't a millennial trend.

The very first boyfriend jeans were worn by Marilyn Monroe in the 1960s. She promoted baggy jeans, all thanks to their comfortable and stylish features. And even today, people often try to imitate her looks and the boyfriend jeans have become a staple in most stylish wardrobes.

But if you're new to the boyfriend jeans bandwagon, we're got just the guide to help you style your way through the 'gram.

What Exactly Are Boyfriend Jeans?

Boyfriend jeans have a distinct appearance - comfortable, baggy, and slouchy. If you see a row of boyfriend jeans at the department store, you may mistaken it to be from the guy's section. But its not!

Over time, this popular pair of jeans has evolved into different variations. For one, boyfriend jeans do not need to be extra baggy but can be slim, and slightly tapered to the bottom for that feminine touch. 

The great thing about boyfriend jeans is that they look fabulous on every body type and make your legs look endlessly long (if its mid-waist).

You know that a clothing piece is a closet essential when it is seen on every top influencer's Instagram feed.  So, get ready to swipe your credit card after seeing how these five gorgeous influencers rock their own versions of boyfriend jeans.
