Skinny jeans have become a popular trend in recent years with women and girls of all ages. Some women may find this look intimidating because of these jeans' curve-hugging nature, but skinny jeans are available in a multitude of colours, fabrics, denim washes and sizes, so they're more wearable than ever. With a wide range of prices, skinny jeans can be affordable for any budget. The key to building a great-looking skinny jeans outfit is balance. You want to be sure to accentuate your curves just enough to look your best without looking like you're simply wearing a pair of too-tight jeans.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Ensure that your skinny jeans fit properly. They should be form-fitting but not too tight. The hemline should fall at or just below the ankle.

  2. 2

    Pair skinny jeans with a long or oversized top. A form-fitting camisole and blazer also work well with skinny jeans.

  3. 3

    Opt for shoes that enhance the balance of the outfit. Ballet or pointed-toe flats or skinny heels are styles that work well with these jeans. In the fall and winter, knee-high boots also look great with skinny jeans.

  4. 4

    Add a long statement necklace to accessorise your outfit. A statement necklace is one that stands out because of its attributes, such as a large gemstone, multicoloured or different-shaped beads or an unusual chain. A long chunky beaded necklace or long layered chains can complement your skinny jeans ensemble.

  5. 5

    Add other accessories such as large hoop or other large dangle earrings, stacked bangle bracelets, and oversized rings. You can wear a skinny belt around your waist when you wear a form-fitting top.

Tips and warnings

  • Avoid ankle or mid-calf boots with skinny jeans. This will make your calves appear too large.
  • Don't wear chunky shoes with skinny jeans. This will throw off the balance of your outfit.
  • Form-fitting tops should be long enough to hit mid-waist.
