Skinny jeans have been a denim staple for so long now, that some may have retired the silhouette, beloved for its flattering, slimming capabilities and versatility, for vintage 501s and more relaxed cuts. We’ve been keeping an eye out though, and discovered that skinny jeans are still everywhere, they’ve just gotten somewhat of a 2019 makeover. We’re certainly not trading in those skinnies anytime soon, but rather putting a revamped spin on how we style them.
Here are some of our all-time favorites and best sellers. Ranging from wear-anytime-and-anywhere classics, to newer pieces, like this FRAME pair we can’t get enough of with a flattering velvet tuxedo stripe, and this GRLFRND Karolina skinny which looks like a thrifted vintage pair from afar, but offers all of the clean and slimming benefits of a traditional skinny jean.
Wear it with:
Combat boots never go out of style, but more recently you’ve probably noticed that once you walk below Houston there’s no escaping them. With a semi-recent “revival” of the OG Dr. Martens, and higher end favorites like R13 and RtA making their own high fashion grunge versions of the iconic style, they are officially a necessity, and it just so happens that they pair perfectly with skinny jeans, too. Tuck your skinnies on in and avoid that awkward bunching at the ankle, or style them with a cropped skinny to show off the perfect little ankle gap.
This season’s coats are bulkier than ever, and we can’t get enough – especially on a subzero NYC day like today. While we appreciate the bulk and the added warmth, we find that a streamlined skinny jean is a must to offset the volume.
This season we see more and more fashion it-girls ditching their classic crewnecks and cable knits for cropped cardigans quarter zips. These styles allow you to show a hint of skin while also keeping warm, and to have an athleisure moment while also looking perfectly put together. We think this trend pairs best with with high waist skinnies that meet right at the cropped hem of your favorite new sweater.
