The 1980s are making a comeback with the recent resurrection of slim-fit or skinny jeans. This season’s incarnation of the skinny jean is much more tasteful.
How to Wear Skinny Jeans
There are several ways you can wear them successfully, mainly:
- Skinny Jeans with High Heels
I absolutely adore wearing skinny jeans with stiletto high heels. When worn with pointy toe or even strappy high heels the effect can be very slimming by creating the illusion of longer legs. This is a fabulous look for all women, but especially for women with wide hips, and those with shorter legs. To play up your curves, wear this style with a slim-fitting shirt.
Tucked Into Boots
Not only does this style allow you to show off your hot, fashionable boots, it’s also the most flattering way to wear the skinny jean. The visual mass of the boots help balance out the hips and bottom, making the skinny jean becoming on even curvy figures.
- Rolled-Up Slim Jeans
You can get creative with skinny jeans by rolling them up six to eight inches and wearing them over high boots, ankle boots, or even stilettos. This is a significantly more casual way to sport the skinny jean, and it works even for those who shy away from slim-fitting denim.
- Skinny Jeans with Flats
There is another way to wear designer skinny jeans, but it’s difficult to pull off, as it exaggerates the hips and butt, and can make even slender women look heavy. This infamous style is, of course, the skinny jean worn with flat shoes. A word of warning: skinny jeans should never be worn with sneakers.
Where to find them?
They are so easy to find these days. You can spot them either in most local clothes markets, for example in quatre-bornes market on Sundays or local shops in the city centre. The key to finding the perfect pair of jeans is in the fitting room though, and this is even truer for skinny jeans. You’ve got to try on every pair of skinny jeans you can get your hands on until you find the right fit.
One additional advice: Buy dark washes – indigo, dark grey or black – to create a lean silhouette and minimize your wider parts.
