Skinny Jeans To Suit All Shapes

Skinny jeans seem to be a shape that never dies. We see them time and time again, yet their appeal never fades. These jeans may be narrow but it’s their slimming fit that makes them irresistible. The great thing about these jeans is that they come in many different styles and can appeal to a large variety of people.

Whether you like to wear them high-waisted with a belt, or cuffed and distressed, anyone can find a style that best fits their personality. Skinny jeans, as its name explicitly states, “skinny” is not just for skinny people…in fact these jeans are quite versatile and include all shapes and sizes. Surprisingly, skinny jeans are elastic and stretchy, giving a comfortable and relaxed fit.

Skinny jeans are also great for playing up your new shoes. You can wear them with boots, heels, flats and even trainers. The nice part is that there is no flare or excess material to draw attention away from your footwear. They are the perfect jeans to accentuate your figure and the areas you want to highlight. Even those who are petite can wear skinny jeans, just make sure they reach your ankles and no further. Bunching them at the cuff will actually make you look shorter. The key things to remember when buying skinny jeans are the style, wash and fit.

A low rise, straight cut is the closest to a boot cut and the easiest to wear. If you’re already comfortable in a straight cut, try skinny or super-skinny. Also, be sure to look at the back pockets to be sure it flatters your behind. The darker the wash, the thinner you will look, which is why black and dark-wash jeans flatters most figures.


Finish your look with the right top and shoe. A long, slender top that ends at your hips or below is ideal. If you have wider hips, opt for a hip-length top, tunic, or blazer to balance the silhouette. Another important thing to keep in mind when putting together your outfit are your choice of shoes. Tucking your skinnies into knee-high boots is always a flattering and chic look. High heeled peep-toe pumps, ankle booties, or gladiator sandals are also a good choice if you are especially curvy or petite.

The trick to finding the perfect pair of skinny jeans is trying them on with the right things and we see lots of people trying on jeans with a bra or an unsuitable top and completely dismiss the jeans (when in fact they would have worked with a different top).
