Skinny jeans are a fashion must-have which anyone can wear, as long as they are worn right. Here are some tips to help you look your best in them.
Dark coloured skinnies have the most slimming effect. Go for black or dark denim. Some shops that have good jeans in stock are Diesel and Levis (and they are of a quality jeans too!).
“Skinny” jeans don’t have to be so tight that the side seams are about to burst or you get a wedgie as soon as you put them on. Try to get jeans that have a bit of stretch in them so you won’t feel so constricted. Skinnies can look just as good in a style that scrunches up a bit around your ankles and is of a slightly looser fit. Don’t get them TOO loose though – otherwise what’s the point of them being called “Skinny jeans“?
Balance off the effect of skinnies by wearing a loose and flowing top over them. Baby doll dresses / tunics work quite well, and look even better with a belt over the waistline. If you want to go for a less girly look, get a loose-fitting (but not baggy) tee in dark colors or with graphics/slogans on it. A good idea would be to check out the sale in OzDenim Store may have some that are just as good. Vests can give you a very edgy look.
Wearing heels / wedges with your skinnies can make you look even taller! Ballet flats and slip Vans – though very common – look best on taller people or people with longer legs. Converse are also a comfy (and good looking) alternative, although again looks better on taller people with longer legs.
If you have chubby calves then you can disguise them by tucking your jeans into knee-high boots.
Avoid short tops that show off your midriff.
Be confident when wearing skinnies! If they make you uncomfortable when you’re wearing them then don’t. Opt for straight-leg jeans instead.
If you’re REALLY curvy or have short legs, skinnies may make you look a little stumpy. Try straight-leg / boot-cut / and especially flared jeans (because they balance out the curves on top) and see how they look.
Don’t wear something just because it’s “in”. Wear something because it suits YOU, and you’re comfortable wearing it!
