Never. Skinny jeans are a new classic! They’re made to be fitted, so a pair that hugs your leg ever-so-perfectly without being too tight is ideal. Trends tend to come and go, but skinny jeans are here to stay for a while, so keep a couple of pairs stocked in your closet in addition to the other perfect pairs of jeans that you have, whether they’re on trend or not.
Why are skinny jeans here to stay?
When skinny jeans hit the market they became an instant classic, beloved by almost everyone because of their versatility and ability to flatter every shape. Skinny jeans were the answer to the inseam conundrum of tall and short-legged girls alike. It is often difficult to find an inseam on a bootleg or flare jean that fit long and short legs.
How should skinny jeans fit?
Skinny jeans are made to be fitted so a pair that hugs your leg ever-so-perfectly without being too tight is ideal. The majority of skinnies are made with a stretchy blend of fabric to allow for a tight fit without constriction. As for length, you can opt to wear them either cropped or full length. If you are aiming for the cropped look, the hem should hit at or near the ankle. For full length, make sure they hit after the ankle at the base of the foot.
What can I wear with skinny jeans?
When it comes to skinny jeans, the world is your fashion oyster as skinnies can be paired with virtually anything. Embrace skinnies in the summertime and channel your inner boho-girl by pairing a light washed or white pair of cropped skinnies with caged or strappy sandals and a lacy off the shoulder top. Transition your skinnies from the weekend to the workweek by adding a tailored blazer and silky blouse to a pair of dark washed skinnies. In the fall and winter, grab your favorite plaid flannel and toss it over a basic v-neck tee paired with your favorite skinnies and a pair of ankle booties for an edgy look to help you rock your day.
