Skinny jeans are a very popular fashion trend and continue to be worn by celebrities and models, but just because celebrities are wearing skinny jeans does not mean that every individual can pull off the look. Even so, if you are still interested in this chic look, make sure that you do your research and try on many different jean types. There are four types of skinny jeans that are currently popular, including straight jeans (14 inch leg opening), skinny jeans, super skinny jeans (10 inch leg opening), and cigarette jeans. Generally, straight jeans flatter most body types, skinny jeans can be worn by most, but with certain shirt styles, and super skinny jeans work best for tall, thin individuals. Cigarette jeans are unique because the leg opening is the same from the knee to the ankle, so be careful to purchase the correct length, otherwise the jeans will bunch up at the bottom.
When out shopping for any type of jean, making use of a fitting room will always help you to find the best pair of jeans for your body type. Always wear dark washes because they create a very slimming look and are definitely your best choice when shopping for skinny jeans. Ballet flats, especially with a pointed toe, work well for tall women, and heels or stilettos work well if you are shorter in stature. Boots, cut at the ankle or knee, tucked into your jeans also work well, especially if you are worried about your calves. Remember, do not wear sneakers with skinny jeans.
Since skinny jeans often make most people's thighs look larger than they really are, longer shirts and tunic tops work well to hide larger buttocks and thighs. Shorter dresses, that you may be afraid to wear with tights or leggings, also work very well with skinny jeans. If you are still worried about your buttocks and thighs, make sure to get a pair of skinny jeans that have the pockets low on the back side. For thinner women, it is easier to wear shorter shirts, but make sure to balance the top with a nice pair of heels or boots. It may also be fun to roll up the bottoms of your skinny jeans a fourth of the way up your calves. If in the end you do not feel comfortable in skinny jeans, do not wear them! You should always feel confident in the clothes that you wear and purchase.
