"Skinny jeans" the unisex fashion trend that isn't going away anytime soon. Since skinny jeans are going to be around and remain just as popular as they have come to be over the past couple of years than it is important to know what works and what doesn't when you are trying to design your outfit around the perfect pair of skinny jeans.

Actually, knowing how to wear skinny jeans is easier than it sounds. A few good pointers in the right direction and you'll be strutting around like you've always had the 'know how'. Or at least - that's the intention.

The easiest way to work out how to wear tight jeans is to think of them as leggings or similar - just remember that they remain what they really are ... a pair of jeans. And jeans can be dressed up or down depending on your mood, event, the day and so on.

Before you purchase..

  • If you have a thicker ankle than you'd like, buy the styles that have the zippers - much easier to climb in and out of
  • don't, whatever you do, buy a size too small. the correct fit is the best fit
  • if they're too long, don't worry. It's ok to have a little gather at the ankle. Especially if you're intending to wear your skinny jeans with ankle boots

Self conscious about your tummy? If you carry a bit more weight in your stomach area you probably cringe at the idea of wearing skinny jeans. A great tip would be avoid wearing low rise and high waist jeans if your tummy concerns you. Not wearing those two types of jeans will avoid a belly bulge or muffin top. Do wear mid rise skinny jeans so the waistband goes across the belly below your belly button and hip bones. Pairing these jeans with a body skimming top and a light jacket can better the look.
