Anonymous asked: I bought two pairs of jeans, a straight fit and a boyfriend fit. I've been wondering about different ways to wear both pairs. I've looked online for some inspiration but a lot of sites have said to feminize your other accessories. I identify as more butch/ androgynous, do you have any tips of what to wear with these jeans? I've never worn boyfriend jeans before, and don't want to look too slouchy, just well put together.

except bathing suits.
and even then you can wear denim jorts. I love summer and legs. Allllright, I’m done.
Real talk: I know what you mean; all the websites say accessorize with a neon pink cardigan with gold buttons, but I say, butch up a pair of jeans! Wear a collared shirt with a tie or bow tie or sweater or vest. If it’s cold, heck, throw on a leather jacket or blazer. If your wrists feel cold, grab a leather band (or fake leather band, because animals are our friends and killing them for an accessory is really silly).
With jeans, shoes define the outfit; a nice pair of dress shoes says, “Look, I’m a grown-ass adult.” A falling-apart pair of Converses say, “I’m not an adult, okay?! I just want to wear sneakers.” So, if you want to look well-put together, I suggest wearing a collared shirt with a sweater, with (somewhat, doesn’t have to be exact) matching belt and shoes. It’s easy and comfortable, and definitely not feminized.
