1. Casual-chic

The simplest way to wear a pair of boyfriend jeans or pants is to keep it casual because it feels really comfortable and goes perfectly for an everyday look. Try to avoid wearing them without a pair of heels or wedges in case you are short, because it will cut out a lot from the overall look. Use a pair of wedges for those days when you are tired and you'll see that they are comfy and you'll change instantly your mood without even realising. If you are really tall you can easily wear baggy pants with anything including gladiator sandals or flats, but keep distance from flip-flops because those are simply for beach or pool.

2. Business meetings

You can wear in a minute a pair of boyfriend jeans even to a business meeting because it may not have the whole professional look at first, but with the right accessories your outfit will be a hit. Check out how Kim Kardashian's wearing her baggy jeans to every meeting without a problem even if we all know that she is petite and with lots of shapes in the same time. Take a beautiful feminine blouse with your jeans, add a pair of sophisticated heels, a blazer over to embrace the professional outfit we're looking for, one maxi bag and you're good to go.

3. Nights-out or Parties

Baggy pants may bring in a second attention over yourself but not every time in the good way if you're not wearing them right. The most important thing is to feel confident and enjoy your outfit without feeling intimidated by other's looks. In order to stand out, remember that critics will come and rather get them than be undiscovered. Take a pair of killer heels on you, add a sophisticated top over, a clutch with different details and a statement necklace that makes you look unique. Always feel good with your style and if one trend doesn't appeal to yourself stop wearing it, no matter how cool you think it looks.
