7 Top Skinny Jeans

Have you heard that saying? Everything old is new again. Whether you are reminded of the saccharine sweetness of Sandra Dee in the 50’s or the rock ‘n’ roll grunge of Johnny Rotten in the 80’s, skinny jeans will take you back in time and bring you forward to today.

Do not freak out! Yes, it’s a skinny jean revolution, but skinny describes the look, not the person. While some skinny jeans are just what you’d expect, only fitting that elite, slim-thighed 11%, there are a lot of options out there. From seriously skinny to almost straight, we’ve pulled 7 top styles that will give you the latest look. Even if you’re body’s not-so-slim and not-so-straight, check out our Skinny Scale, this is a trend you may not have to skip.

Here’s our skinny scale. We’ve ranked these jeans from the skinniest skinny to the straight skinny. You decide which you dare to try.

Miss Sixty Eden Skinny Stretch Jeans, $219: Skinniest Skinny

This is the skinniest of the skinny, sexy tight from top to bottom; don’t go near this jean unless you’re as straight and slim as an arrow. This is a great skinny jean if you have a smaller seat and super slim thighs. Textural pocket details and eye-catching back embroidery bring dimension and interest to the tight sexy fit through the butt. You can rejoice in your thin thighs at last with a jean that was made just for them.

Chip & Pepper Skinny Jeans, $187: Extremely Skinny

Also for the super straight, this Chip & Pepper jean has a slim fit that is not quite as tight as Miss Sixty. A darker wash color and longer leg length make for an extra slim silhouette. Scrunching those extra long legs at the ankle actually has a similar effect to a boot cut, balancing out your shape by adding volume at the bottom.

Siwy Michelle: $182: Seriously Skinny

There’s a little more room for your booty in these skinny jeans. They’ve got super stretch that allows for a close fit and comfortable movement. An upward tilt at the back waist contributes to better seat coverage. Again, a darker wash and a slightly straighter leg works best for curvier women, minimizing hips and thighs for a slim straight look. The extra length that bunches slightly at the shoe is a cool trick that will make anyone’s legs look longer.

Levi’s 503 Skinny, $25: Still Skinny

This is a great skinny alternative that gives a bit more room through the hip and thigh while still maintaining that skinny vibe. If you have more of a seat and an average thigh, these will fit well and look great on you. Due to their skinny leg, they will enhance your hip curve so you have to keep that in mind. The other nice thing about these is the price. You can afford to dabble in the latest trend even if it’s only for a season or two.

J Brand Cigarette Leg, $158: Still Skinny

Clean dark finishes and an absence of embellishment have made J Brand one of the leaders of the skinny jeans trend. This jean has a bit more room through the leg so it doesn’t cling to your every curve. A slightly straighter leg like this is a good choice for those of us with larger thighs or more shape through our hips. The straight look is there without the plastered fit. You still have a perfect base for the longer, fuller tops that are such a big part of this trend.

Citizen’s of Humanity Ava, $146: Sort of Straight

This great fitting jean has a narrow straight leg that will give you a very slim long look without the tight fit. There is room for a butt and some hip curve in these skinny jeans; you can even have a larger thigh. The leg slims down at the knee and then stays straight for that skinny look you love. Leave it to Citizen’s to give you the latest look in a very wearable jean.

Gap Straight Boy Cut Jeans, $58: Straight Skinny

This is not the skin tight skinny jean but this straight style will give you that same slim look. The cut of the Boy Cut jean is very straight, giving your body a long clean line even if you have curves. There is room for a butt and a good amount of coverage at the waist. Gap prices are also very reasonable, making this a fashion trend that you can’t afford to pass up.

Latest Fashion News and Ideas: Bags Invade, and the Clutch Wins!

This season is your turn to try the sassiest bag! From classy bags to funky ones, here are the latest fashion news and ideas and the best handbag designs so far.

Pick the bag that suits your fashion style. You can pick top handles: No matter how you decide to wear them, this year choose your bags with small top handles as they are here to conquer the fashion runaways. You can also go for bucket bags: this trend has been going on for a few seasons now and it is far from disappearing, as it is evolving more and more in different shapes and many embroideries and designs.

A new fashion trend in the bag region: camera bags: It seems the trend of technology in bags is not limited to phones only. This season you will also be seeing a lot of camera bags, which are bags but with a little more volume and size, big enough to fit your bag.

Or you can go for clutches. When you think of clutch handbags, you think weddings, prom night, or dinner parties, but never everyday outings. They’re not very practical, and you can barely fit your phone, wallet, and keys in there.

Nevertheless, they do have their perks; they look pretty, minimalistic, modern, and are a chic change from traditional handbags. So if you’ve been wanting to convert to a clutch but don’t really feel they’re comfortable, here are some tips on how you can pull off the look.

Use a strap: You don’t have to carry the clutch in your hand. And instead of carrying a large, heavy bag on your shoulder, carry a clutch with a strap. It’s light and practical.

Take just what you need: Take a look at your bag right now; what can you find in it? You’ll probably find a bottle of perfume that’s been empty since last spring, along with lots of other stuff you don’t use. When you go out, what do you really need besides your wallet, keys, and maybe a couple of makeup essentials? That way, you’ll not only make it lighter, but you’ll also find what you’re looking for faster.

Pick a clutch that has pockets: Some clutches have pockets on the outside, which can hold some extra items like your phone or mascara. You can also use that space to put your cash and cards instead of taking your wallet, so you’ll free up some space in the main pocket.

Choose the right size for you: Some clutches are actually quite large, which may tempt you to get them. But if you have a petite figure, a large clutch might look awkward, so take a look at yourself in the mirror before you buy it just to make sure it’s not oversized for you.

Choose the pattern/color carefully: If you have a basic style in clothing, go for a patterned clutch to add some flair to your outfit. But if you’re wearing something with lots of stripes and designs, you should carry a clutch with.
