Refinery29 says it all: “When it comes to big fashion moments, there’s Before Skinny Jeans and After Skinny Jeans.”
But while we’re (super) happy to be living in A.S.J. right now, we have to admit – our staple skinnies feel a smidge tired every once in a while.
To the rescue: ten new ways to wear them, straight from Refinery29.
1. Fold ‘Em Up — Buying your pants a few inches too long doesn’t have to mean a trip to the tailor. Roll them up, and wear your pair with a few chic layers and some killer heels. It’s an irreverent styling trick that makes an outfit feel undone in a good way.
2. Patches Make Perfect — Cover an old pair of jeans with a smattering of fun iron-ons, or buy a pair of pre-patched jeans like these from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Wear them with basics and sparse accessories.
3. Cut Copies — Clean, straight slits at the knees are a riff on all the distressed denim we’ve been seeing, but this trend is totally compelling in a perfectionist’s sort of way. Wear it with low-pro brogues and wild prints.
