Boyfriend jeans aren’t new or particularly trendy, but they play into the more relaxed styles that are popular right now, so I’m styling a pair of modern boyfriend jeans for a spring date night.

What keeps these boyfriend jeans looking modern is the higher rise and the light wash. And because they don’t have much distressing, they’re easy to dress up or down.
They come with a cuffed hem, and I like them that way. The inseam with the cuff is 25.5″ long, which is the perfect crop length for my 5’5″ frame. You could roll them again, if you need them shorter, or you could wear them un-cuffed if you prefer — they are not sewn like that.
I’ve showed these boyfriend jeans a few times already with casual t-shirts and sneakers or flat sandals, so I styled them for this post with a faux suede drape front jacket and block heel slides for a fun date night look.
These slides are a great value for Jeffrey Campbell. Unfortunately, my blush color sold out, but they come in white, blue, and a fun lavender.
These harken back to the jelly sandals that were a passing trend in the 80s — yep, that’s trending again! What goes around comes around! And they have the square toe and minimalist design that is also on trend at the moment.
Because they’re not leather, they’re under $50, and they’re actually really comfortable and flattering on the foot. They only come in whole sizes, so I went with my usual size 8 (I often need a 7.5 in slides) and they fit perfectly.
This jacket is currently 40% off and still fully stocked in this versatile chateau grey, plus it comes in black as well as pink and peach. I always size up in BlankNYC jackets, so I have this in the medium.
I just layered it over a simple white tee — the rounded v-neck is flattering, but you could do a v-neck or crewneck — whatever you happen to have! And I just wore a simple pendant along with teardrop earrings to complete the look.
