Finding the perfect jeans (especially in a boyfriend style) is the bane of my existence. It’s up there with finding anything strapless, a great fitting bra, thigh high boots, spaghetti strap blouses that actually sit properly, mini shorts and jackets. This is so much so that I have never actually owned a pair of boyfriend jeans, let alone a sexy pair that are ripped to this degree, despite wanting to be a part of this fabulous trend.
What makes boyfriend jeans shopping so difficult for me is the fact that I have a tiny waist with big, muscular legs, which are undeniably very large for my frame. Are there any other ladies that experience my pain?
When you have to work with your body’s non-standard proportions, it makes it very frustrating to source relaxed jeans that don’t make you look and feel like the elephant in the room. This loose style obviously accentuates and draws attention to the legs, which can be a disaster more often than not when the wrong cut is selected.
My tips if you are a girl with big muscular legs like me are to source a slim-style pair that sits snugly at the belly button and then tapers in at the ankles. This will allow the jeans to direct focus to two of your slimmest assets and this visually creates the illusion of slimmer and longer legs. Additionally, rolling the jeans so that they crop a few inches above the ankle will also enhance this effect.
Another fashion demon I have conquered in this outfit is finding a fashionable bra that I feel confident enough in to rock in public. The sexy lace one I am wearing is from a newly launched Australian label called “Silent Arrow” and I am not exaggerating in the slightest when I say discovering them has changed my life. Their range is absolutely fantastic and what’s more, they are all about empowering women and creating change! With every purchase, they generously donate a pair of cotton knickers to a woman in need.
I was blessed with the honor of meeting Kelly, the founder and director, who has had 15 years of experience in the industry. She is a master of creating the perfect fit. I can attest to how life changing her designs are - the cut is incredible and I felt so supported flitting around Melbourne in nothing but a sexy bra and ripped boyfriend jeans. I love everything about the brand and cannot wait to add more pieces to my top drawer. Mr Mochi will be a very happy man indeed!!
So here’s to me ticking off two of my clothing nightmares in one outfit!
