Skinny Jeans Not in Style? Tell That to These 10 Sophisticated Outfit Ideas
Ask Alexa, Google, or Siri, and they may tell you skinny jeans are out. TikTok videos will most definitely confirm this to be true. But there's also something to be said for standing by a classic item in your wardrobe through the years simply because you love the fit. Just because your go-to denim brands are introducing new cuts for the season doesn't mean the skinny is by any means discontinued. Your social feeds may try to redirect you to the straight-leg or mom pant, but don't second guess your personal preference, especially if the skinny is comfortable and flattering on you.
We'd argue there are even certain shoe styles and outfit combinations that benefit from a tapered ankle — and honestly just look better with a skinny jean. From oversize, double-breasted blazers (which we'll personally always love with skinnies and stilettos) to the ballet flat, which perfectly polishes off a formfitting pant, here are 10 looks made up of staples you most definitely own and still love to wear. We also included some of our favorite skinny jeans on the market right now, for all you fashion rule breakers and rebels who know trends are really all relative to taste.
Try a cropped, two-toned skinny pant with a heel teamed up with an oversize, double-breasted blazer.
Slip on your skinnies with a denim shirt for a Canadian-tuxedo moment, and add sharp stiletto boots with Western flair.
Wear your dark-wash pair with a thin belt and ballet flats with a lightweight button-down and a long trench.
There's no combination like a crisp, cropped skinny with white sport sneakers and an oversize sweater vest.
Pull your skinnies over a red leather bootie, and complete with a cropped bomber or puffer.
Play with different tones, starting with a light-wash denim jacket on top and completing with charcoal jeans and a patent boot.
Try working your high-waisted skinnies with leather knee-high boots and an oversize boyfriend shirt, casually unbuttoned with a pair of sleek hoops.
Cuff your longer skinnies to show off a printed leather mule.
To show a little skin, try a strappy sandal and a romantic, poufy-sleeved top.
Wear a thick black belt and chunky boots, a fitted white tee, a blazer, and a crossbody pouch.
