How to buy men's jeans for a girl

A fun, edgy style for all women to try: the boyfriend jean. This relaxed style is perfect for trendy, casual wear. You can spend less by purchasing real men's jeans instead of boyfriend-cut women's jeans.

Convert Your Size

Take your jean size and add 21. That is the waist size of the men's jeans that will fit you. Because men's jeans are not as wide in the hips, you may need to go up one size if you have fuller hips. Likewise, you may need to drop one size if your hips are narrow.

How to Wear Men's Jeans

Men's jeans come in just as many washes and styles as women's. This allows this look to be easy for everyone to pull off. They are meant to fit loosely, so to balance out the bulk, wear a more fitted top. Try cuffing the bottoms, as this is a typical technique when wearing this look.

Dress to Your Shape

Because these jeans are baggy, it is important to still dress to your shape to avoid looking sloppy. Basic guidelines: if you have a petite figure, go for straight leg. Any wash can work with thinner legs. If you're curvy or tall, go for boot cut to create a proportional silhouette. Opt for a dark wash.
