Winter Denim Overhaul: The Boyfriend Edition

Androgyny is much more than a style choice: it’s the foundation of everything we know and love about fashion. Gender-conforming clothing is an ideology that just doesn’t exist anymore — as if it ever existed in the first place. Think about it: moto jackets, polo shirts, even skirts are now donned by both men and women as a proud celebration of the fact that clothing is no longer reserved for a single sex.


A true example to this testament: jeans. Specifically, boyfriend jeans. They’re literally named after the concept of raiding your partner’s closet and grabbing the baggiest fit you can find.


Whichever you prefer, there are plenty of boyfriend jeans out there, so we’ve narrowed down the list to show you the best of the best.
