“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. The majority of skinnies are made with a stretchy blend of fabric to allow for a tight fit without constriction. ”—Sheri
“Bootcut jeans are your best friend—the widening of the leg will create an elongated leg line. When wearing skinny or straight-leg jeans, opt for a pair of heels or wedges to give your legs the illusion of length.”—Erika
“Keep an eye out for pockets that have stitch details or flaps, which will help bring some definition to your bottom. For optimal derriere definition, look for pockets that hit at the fullest part of your bum.”—Jennifer
“When washing (not only black but any denim), you want to turn them inside out and use your gentlest cycle on cold.”—Jennifer
“A tailored, dark-wash chambray shirt is a piece that should be a staple in every girl’s closet. It’s the perfect companion for your colored jeans but will also pair with a multitude of other pieces in your closet.”—Sheri
“Pair a moderately pair of distressed denim with a simple button-up or a silk blouse for a polished and (more) structured look. Take this outfit to work by donning a blazer and heels on a casual Friday.”—Stephania
How do I make boyfriend jeans look more feminine?
“Since your boyfriend jeans are loose (and extra comfortable), choose an ultra-feminine blouse that’s definitely not borrowed from the boys. Try a silk button-up or a floral tank paired with dark or light wash boyfriend jeans.”—Anne
“A fun way to play up light-wash skinny jeans is to add pops of color and trendy patterns to your look. Wear your skinny jeans with a floral printed blouse and nude wedges for chic brunch ensemble.”—Brittany
“Don your denim with plenty of polish and choose a fitted layering top, tucked in with a cropped, structured jacket. Collarless tweed styles evoke a vintage feel from a different era, and equally complement your high-risers.”—Jennifer
“If you want to stick with your favorite jeans, try a classic cut in a dark wash. A darker wash makes the look feel less casual but just as comfortable.”—Casey
“Go for a breezy boho blouse with a casual front tuck and pair with tan sandals or ankle booties. If you’re looking for added shape, be sure to tuck in your top into your skirt to create an instant hourglass.”—Tyler
“When choosing a pair of skinny jeans, look for some with lots of stretch, like jeans that are made with a cotton-polyester blend—they will help avoid the dreaded back gap (& any risk of flashing)—and jeans made with spandex.”—Brittany
“Dark-wash jeans pull double duty as a figure slimming pair of pants, but also give a more office-appropriate feel. Plus, you can pick up a pair of black, navy and raw wash jeans for a buttoned-up feel.”—Jennifer D.
“Shorts and jeans in a mid-rise will be much more flattering for your midsection than a lower rise. Of the many new denim trends out there, try some high-rise jeans to create an ultra flattering hourglass shape and hide a muffin top.”—Jami
“Embrace the cuff. A small cuff just above the ankle is a timeless look and will show off the narrowest part of your leg. “—Jennifer
