Everybody Grab a Boyfriend

The Boyfriend trend has been romancing fashion for several seasons now.  I became aware of my desires with the Boyfriend jeans.  Looser, broken in and faded ... easy like an old boyfriend.  A welcome alternative to the tighter, darker bootlegs that were long enough for heels, but too long for Sunday afternoons, the Boyfriend jeans work well with bare feet, flip flops or my fave cowboy boots.  They’re as easy to wear as yoga pants ... but made of denim.  What could be better?  

Well, when the temperatures climb, the Boyfriend shorts are the ones I take out again and again.  Cut off, frayed or cuffed, they’re casual, hip and cool.  I especially like them belted with a fitted tank and flat sandals.  They can also be changed up with a long sweater and chunky sandals, or even tights and boots when the temps drop again.  

The Boyfriend khakis are another staple for warm weather.  Cute with an ultra-feminine ruffled tee or tank and retro sneakers or a fitted polo and ballet flats.  These pants add a neo-preppy side to summer’s wardrobes.

My biggest attraction this summer may be a return to my first boyfriend.  The Boyfriend cardigan has been around forever, but never as desirable as this season.  Jonano’s ecoKashmere Boyfriend Cardigan is so date-night cute with your favorite pair of dark wash skinny jeans, belted or hanging loose.  Yep, skinny jeans here.  Only one boyfriend at a time, please.  

The refined styling features mother of pearl button closure, and extra long length in the body and sleeve. Great for snuggling, this knit is exceptionally soft in a viscose of organic bamboo blended with a hint of polyester for stretch resilience and lasting style.  Other boyfriends may come and go, but this one can be there for the long haul, seasonless and classic.

Cloud White, Ice Blue, Midnight Black.  MSRP $110

Wrap yourself in this sweater, and you may want to stay in his -- um its arms forever.
