We Love Them, Yet There Are Alternatives to Skinny Jeans
Ahh, skinny jeans. One of the most versatile pieces in a woman’s wardrobe. Probably my favorite “style” of jean. Yet there are alternatives to the skinny jean that are just as easy, and dare I say even more comfortable, to wear. It’s refreshing to switch up one’s jean game! Let’s take a look at a few different options that send a style statement of their own.
Alternatives to Skinny Jeans
The Ultra Cropped Jean
The ultra cropped jean can appear in many different styles and washes, though one thing is the same..the jeans are cropped short 2-3 inches above the ankles. Whether they have a finished hem, are asymmetrical or straight cut off, ultra cropped jeans love to match up with ankle boots and booties. They are a perfect jean for transitional seasons like fall and spring.
The High Waisted Boyfriend Jean
I’ve got a new love in my life and it’s the high waisted boyfriend jean. This pair, with ripped knees and rolled up to ankle length are so versatile, I’ve been wearing them with everything from lightweight sweaters to blazers. Wear a statement belt to up the style factor, or keep them ultra casual cool by going without. The high waist makes a statement on its own.
The Flared Jean
Flared jeans seem to rotate in and out of style on a seasonal basis. From what I’ve seen, they tend to become trendy once the warm weather hits and breezy, boho looks are in. They certainly do have a ’70’s vibe, if you style them with current accessories and forget the peasant blouses, they look current. Love them or hate them, flared jeans flatter most body types. Bonus points for throwing on a pair of wedges or heels underneath for an additional lengthening effect. One last thing, you’ve got to commit to length with flared jeans. I’m talking floor skimming, or it doesn’t work.
