Minimalist Monday: Skinny Jeans
5 Reasons to Love Your Skinny Jeans
Let’s talk about skinny jeans.
Skinny jeans have been a popular clothing trend for years and probably won’t be fading anytime soon. They are comfortable, convenient, affordable and are sold in about one hundred different styles. What’s best about skinny jeans? They can be worn over and over again with almost anything, ultimately making our lives 10 times easier. #Blessed.
Because they’re so many styles and colours available skinny jeans are appropriate for all ages and look fabulous on all body shapes and sizes.
On its own, the skinny jean is minimalist. They function as a blank canvas, allowing each person to dress according to their daily lives and personal style. Skinny jeans can be dressed up, worn casually, or be chic and sexy if worn with the right accessories.
Here are 5 different ways to get the most wear out of your skinny jeans:
When we think of jeans, we often think of something comfortable, convenient and easy to throw on when we’re in a rush. One way to play up the casual nature of this wardrobe essential is to pair it with another booming trend: sneakers. If you’re wearing low tops, roll up the cuff of your jeans (if you don’t already own cropped jeans) to enhance that clean and effortless look.
If you feel like rocking a pair of high tops, try tucking the jeans into your sneakers for a casual look with a bit of edge.
Skinny jeans prove that looking fashionable doesn't always require a ton of time and effort. One of my favourite outfits to throw on when “I have nothing to wear” is a pair of skinny jeans (either black, light or dark denim), a black flowy top and a pair of mules. Style this ensemble with a kickass necklace or purse and there’s no doubt you’ll be looking#FLAWLESS.
Another trend that has been extremely popular the past few years is the oversized clothing. Balance is everything when it comes to pulling off the oversized look. The bigger your sweater or coat, the more fitted the rest of your outfit should be. Pair your skinny jeans with a badass pair of bootie heels, a long cardigan or an oversized sweater or coat. Don’t be afraid to mix it up with some accessories like a sun hat or large purse.
One of the greatest things about skinny jeans is that they can often be worn at work or other professional environment. Opt for black or a darker wash and say goodbye to your shapeless dress pants. Rock your jeans with a loose fitted blouse (softer tones are a great pairing) and a cute blazer or cropped jacket. Black heels are the icing on the cake to this sophisticated outfit, or pointed black ballet flats as an alternative.
ne of my favourite outfits to wear when I want to look dressed up is black skinny jeans and a turtleneck or a loose fitted, flowy top. Try tucking in your top to embellish that effortless and polished look. Note that with these types of outfits, accessories are everything. So throw on your best pair of heels and that statement piece necklace and be prepared to WOW everyone you walk by.
