Skinny jeans have reigned denim for almost longer than I can remember. They hit our lives with all their svelte feels and we didn’t look back. Until now. So many options have started to arise and now we must consider, are skinny jeans still for me? Or is there a better denim, a more comfortable cut? Something that is a little more stylish? And something that ultimately looks more fabulous? Well friends I am here to breakdown some fantastic options for you to consider. Let’s get started.
- G-STAR RAW C-Staq 3D Boyfriend Crop $279
This is a great weekend jean, all the slouch and fun but with a little crop to show off a bit of ankle, keeping the look feminine.
Definitely one for an elevated look, team with heels, atop and maybe a great pair of statement earrings for an after 5 style or with sneakers, a tee and a trench for a more everyday look.
Move over mum jeans to make way for The Dad! High waisted, causal fit, this style is worn well with a t-shirt and pair of Converse or a fitted knit and heeled boots.
Mini boot in a crop you ask? Yes! A crop, why?? Because the crop shows off a bit of the ankle, it is very feminine and makes the style modern, and boot cut, because, when cut well it truly is the most flattering denim. Boot cut denim was the most popular style for a decade for a reason.
A high rise slim straight style is a flattering cut on many, the high rise gives the illusion of a long leg and the straight style can help with this too. Be sure to give a little tuck to your top or wear a fitted style to give the look some shape.
6. Neuw Denim Lola Mom ZERO Jemima RRP $169.95
I personally have these jeans and have been asked what brand they are EVERY SINGLE TIME I wear them. True story. Nice high waist, tapered leg with a little elastin in the denim so they are very wearable.
7. Jag Katie Barrel Leg Jean $140
The Barrel sits high-waisted showcasing the feminine figure and adds a volume leg for shape. A must to tuck a top or wear a fitted top to make this style look its best.
