Skinny jeans have been a hot trend for quite some time now. Although this is not a totally new trend as it dates back in the 50’s and the 80’s before it resurfaced in mid 2007, what makes wearing skinny jeans today so popular and fashionable is the different styles that fashion trendsetters have come up with. Contrary to the plain, old skinny jeans before, skinny jeans today come in different colors, prints and styles giving you a lot more freedom on how to wear skinny jeans.
You don’t have to be skinny at all to wear these skinny jeans. You’ll see a lot of people, especially celebrities and well-known fashionistas wearing floral and plaid skinny jeans, pastel colored skinny jeans, tie-dyed skinny jeans and even high-waist skinny jeans although the classic blue skinny jeans will, of course, still be an all-time favorite. Here are a few tips on how you can wear them with style:
Skinny jeans are very versatile that they can be worn with almost anything
Skinny Jeans worn with heels add an illusion of extra height
- Wear them with boots – Skinny jeans always look great when worn with boots, even if you’re a little bit on the heavy side. And it doesn’t matter if you want to wear knee-high boots or just ankle boots. This makes them a closet staple for fall and will transition very well even into the winter. Ultimately, though, skinny jeans go well with any footwear of your choice, be it boots, flip flops, ballet flats, sandals, wedges, pumps or stilettos so it’s safe to say that skinny jeans are great closet staples all year round!

- Wear them with an oversized or long top – Skinny jeans hug your legs like leggings do. They can be super tight which means that you’ll probably get a problem down your tushy area sometimes so to cover this up, an oversized top like a boyfriend polo or an oversized cardigan is great. If you’re not into oversized clothes (although it is a huge trend now with K-pop), you can pair skinny jeans with long, girly tops like a tunic or a baby doll blouse

- It’s all about the proportions – As with most things in fashion, it’s always about proportions. Again, you don’t have to be skinny to wear skinny jeans but not all styles may work for you unless you’re supermodel skinny. So for girls out there who are more voluptuous, go for darker colored skinny jeans! Dark colors can give you a slimming effect so they will work well for you.
