We first saw the menswear trend break through on the Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney and Saint Laurent fall runways a few years ago and man has it been here to stay. From boyfriend denim that has gained popularity since early last spring, to the newer loafer and trouser genre, we are head over sneakers for this “borrowed from the boys” look.
Boyfriend jeans were the frontrunner of the ‘Menswear’ trend and although they have been around for a few years, boyfriend jeans helped the trend come to the spotlight in all of our favorite styles. The “boyfriend” fit now applies to t-shirts, a variety of bottoms, and shoes. The meaning behind the look being that it’s slouchy and comfy, yet fashionable and chic. The ‘Menswear’ look gives us an alternative to all of those oversized hoodies that we could all live in, & the trend has since spilled over into the business world with longline blazers and loafers.
As pictured, Zendaya shows us a way to take those boyfriend jeans and jazz them up a bit with heels to give them a more feminine look.
Now for the finishing touch of an outfit,shoes! The loafer may be a little off putting to some, but there are so many feminine patterns that make this shoe a great alternative to the ballet flat.
Save your trip to the mall and check out your boys closet or order the #looksforless below! ‘Borrowed From the Boys’ is one of our favorites and it isn’t going anywhere.

We’re barely even two months in 2017, but Selena Gomez is already one of our best dressed celebrities this year! Selena’s recent looks have got everyone talking, with streamlined and contrasting outfits which give her a more grown-up vibe.
Two of Selena’s most popular recent looks have featured a key trend – cropped flare jeans. Paired with a dinosaur motif Coach sweater, a white turtleneck and suede pumps, Selena pulled off an updated ‘geek chic’ look. Selena also paired her denim with a black coat, cropped top and patent slingback pumps – the perfect day-to-night look! We know Selena will be the subject of inspiration for many women this year, so make sure you check out the link below to get your trend piece for less cash!
In another denim-focused and 70s inspired look, Selena paired denim dungarees with platform heels and a sheer, long sleeved top. 70s inspired looks have experienced resurgence lately, with flares, platforms, fringe and suede dominating the runways for SS17. Selena wears the 70s trend perfectly, limiting herself to one key piece – platform heels – and building her outfit around them.

Hey everyone! My name is Grace and I’m a senior graduating (counting down the days!) in May at Indiana University. I’m a Journalism major with a concentration in Public Relations and a minor in Marketing.
I love to travel and explore what the world has to offer. I love London (and hope to move there!) and after living there for 6 months, I’m obsessed with their street style. I’m also a huge music junkie and I love going to concerts and music festivals.
All of these things really inspire me to express myself through my style. And I guess the best way to describe my style is urban trendy, 90s grunge with a touch of sporty. I love finding new trends to wear and wearing old trends.
I’m excited to work with so many different styles and maybe even get some new style tips too 😉
See you on the streets of London or in the crowd!
Denim has been around since 1871 and during those 146 years, denim has become a crowd favorite. It has changed with every passing decade and we are now experiencing a comeback of some of our favorite styles from the past. Some of these comebacks include: high-waisted jeans and shorts, denim overalls, denim jackets, the boyfriend jean, the mom jean, flares, and even skinny jeans.
Skinny jeans seem to be staying for awhile, but even they too once made a comeback. Skinny jeans got their start in the 19th century as a slim fit trouser among the higher class, they hit the scene again in the 1950s under a different name, cigarette pants. Musicians and actors were the ones who reintroduced these jeans and they’ve seemed to stick with us ever since.
Flares are a product of the 1960s and 1970s. Sonny and Cher are to blame for this one becoming popular after wearing them on their television show The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour. Flare jeans began to flare at the knee and opened up at the bottom to a whopping 26 inches. Bell bottoms for sure!
Boot cut style jeans are the tapered down cousin of the flares and are a staple cut of denim in most everyone’s’ closet. So, if that 26 inches at the bottom of your leg is a tad intimidating, try the bootcut, same effect of a slight flare from the knee down, just not as major.
Moving onto 1980s which is where us millennials are get our band tees, leg warmers and distressed denim of any kind.
I sure wish my mom had kept all her clothes from high school so I could’ve saved some money on this one. Mom jeans and boyfriends jeans were a huge hit in the 1980s. The high-waisted cut was tight around the small of the waist and totally baggy everywhere else. Paired with a cropped sweatshirt and you fit in perfectly.
I believe the best thing to ever happen to the world of denim however, is the denim jacket. The denim jacket has been around through all of these decades and kept evolving to adapt to the fashion of the decade. Slim fitting and masculine to very oversized and distressed, all of these styles have made their return to our closets today and can be found just about anywhere we shop. Denim is so diverse and there is a wash, cut and style for everyone. Jeans are worn everyday in my life and I don’t see that changing. They’ve been around since fashion began and are here to stay. Now, you know I can’t talk about denim without leaving you guys with this.
