1. Downplay the Masculine Factor

To look more feminine in your loose pair of denims, pair it with a girly top. We’re talking ruffles, silk blouses, floral prints or pretty embroidery for a softer, prettier touch to your boyfriend jeans. Make sure your top is fitted to accentuate your curves and balance out the bagginess of the jeans. You can also add a dressy blazer or a cropped jacket to elevate the look a notch or two.

2. Heels Are a Good Idea

Another sure-shot way to maintain your feminine charm with a pair of jeans that you can borrow from your man’s wardrobe is with a pair of sky-high heels. Not only will they dress up your outfit but also give you longer, look-at-me legs. A pretty pair of wedges can always help do the trick when you don’t want to opt for painful stilettos.

3. Accessories Are Key

Accessories can seriously alter a look. You can further elevate your outfit with a few statement baubles to make it more night-time-appropriate. Gorgeous chandelier earrings, a delicate statement necklace or a formal clutch can bring a certain oomph to your style in an instant.
