We’ve compiled our list of best tips on how to style your skinny jeans.
Balanced outfits are easy on the eye as opposed to looking squeezed into your clothes or wearing a completely loose ensemble. Because skinny jeans are tight-fitting, we love to wear them with something more casual and heavy on top. Wear skinny jeans to help balance the bulk of sweaters, jackets, coats, and leather in the autumn and winter. If you’re wearing skinny jeans, feel free to wear your oversized sweater to feel comfortable but still look fashionable. If oversized sweaters aren’t your thing, try styling with a long wrap sweater for a more sophisticated look. Skinny jeans are the perfect pairing to anything in your closet that is loose, chunky, or bulky. You’ll look incredible with whatever you put on top.
Skinny jeans can be smart and casual depending on how you style them. But they can also be smart casual, as the rugged texture of the jean balances the sleek streamlined silhouette of skinny jeans. You can easily dress them up or down making them an excellent wardrobe option for everything from heading to the office to going out to dinner to hanging out at home. Depending on the wash and style of your skinny jeans, you can wear them almost anywhere all year long.
To dress up skinny jeans, choose a black or darker wash, which is a little more sophisticated. Wear with a silk blouse or a women’s cashmere turtleneck, a structured blazer, and booties for a professional and polished look. To dress your skinny jeans down, try a lighter wash with a frayed hem, paired with a white t-shirt and some sneakers or flats—easy and effortless! Whether you dress your skinnies up or down, you’re still going to look and feel fabulous.
Skinny jeans are amazing in that they go with almost every shoe imaginable. Depending on the shoes you choose to wear with your skinnies, your entire outfit can change from pick up at the kids’ school to date night with the hubby. The fitted and streamlined shape of skinny jeans works well with virtually any shoe. But especially for shorter or curvier women, it's still good to be practical about the shoes you choose to style with these pants.
To enhance the jean’s slimming and elongating effect, pair these pants with ankle-baring or open-toe styles this season for an effortlessly streamlined ensemble. Try wearing some knee-high or calf-high boots and tuck your jeans in to show off your footwear. Tucking your skinny jeans into your boots also looks great with women’s winter boots to keep you stylish all winter long. Regardless of what shoes you wear with these jeans, you're bound to look great.
As we mentioned about balancing the bulk, skinny jeans look best visually when paired with something looser fitting up top. Choose a long tank top or a classic t-shirt for a casual look. You can never go wrong with a t-shirt and jeans. If your skinny jeans are high waisted, try wearing a crop top instead. If it’s chillier, then wear an open cardigan over your crop top or t-shirt to stay warm while still keeping with the style of skinny jeans. We also love skinny jeans with tucked-in button-up blouses for a more formal look. Our other favorite top to wear with skinny jeans is a tunic. Regardless of the style or fabric, the length and flow of tunics pair perfectly with any style of skinny jeans.
Don’t be afraid to get creative with what to wear with your skinny jeans. The sophistication and sleek style of skinny jeans makes them incredibly versatile and compatible with almost all personal style items.
