The skinny jean. It might as well be known as ‘jeans’ right? Skinny jeans are that popular now and are the ultimate staple when it comes to denim. I haven’t met anyone that doesn’t own at least one pair, and when we go shopping for a new pair of classic jeans which aren’t trend related, we always gravitate towards a pair of skinny jeans.
I remember the days, about 10 years ago, when premium denim started to become popular, brands were introducing a skinny to test the water over their bootcuts, and it was a hit. It’s amazing to me now though that I wouldn’t even class those skinny jeans as ‘skinny jeans’ anymore, purely because they used to have between a 12″ – 14″ leg opening! That’s pretty much considered a straight, or slim straight in today’s standards.
So with all of this in mind, it brings me to this blog post. There are now so many types of skinny jeans that you can choose from, it can be overwhelming. As skinny is the new black, there’s literally dozens of cuts and designs you can choose from when shopping for a new pair of skinny jeans, so I wanted to take it back to basics and list 6 skinny jeans every woman should own. This list is in order of importance as well, so if you’re only looking to buy one pair, you should make it one of the top 3 on this list, but I do recommend the high rise skinny! I can’t be without mine. Let me know what skinny jeans you favour!
