A Few Flavors of Skinny Jeans


Skinny Jeans have actually been around since the 1950's and they were first worn by film stars such as Gene Autry, Marilyn Monroe, and Sandra Dee. The style of the Skinny Jeans fits into a class of its own and is widely recognized for its slim cut that exudes sex appeal.  It's a form fitting silhouette- skinny jeans tapper at the ankle and have thigh hugging legs giving the impression of skin tight jeans. In 2000, skinny jeans made a comeback thanks to fashion icon, Kate Moss and today are worn by celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba and Olivia Wilde to name a few


Now that we have the style back and seems like it is here to stay for awhile, how do you choose what type of fit and fabric finish you want? With a diversity between blue denim, black denim and dark jeans how do we start to decide?  How can they be I sexy jeans without looking like I am pushing a pair of jeans to their limits? Here are a few to explore. 

Let's explore Ombre.  Ombré describes the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.  It can also go from dark to light and this technique has been used a long time. We have all seen this technique becoming more popular especially in hair colors, so why not in your jeans too?  Ombre has been a popular ongoing trend lately, especially Blue Ombre.  How to match a top?  I think the easiest solution and the best look would be having the darker color on top, whether you like black or the blue, have fun with it!  They sure will be different than any other pair of jeans that you've got. 

Waist trends are on the rise for jeans mostly in city jeans settings!  Flattering and hip-skimming, it’s no surprise that high waisted pants keep returning to the catwalk and now they are being shown in skinny jeans. A high-rise or high-waisted garment is one designed to sit high on, or above, the wearer's hips, usually at least 3 inches higher than the navel. High-waisted pants tend to have long zippers, ranging from about 7-10 inches long, and leave the navel either completely covered or barely shown. Zipper lengths are not to be confused with rises. High-waisted pants have rises typically 10 inches long or longer. One would tend to believe that they are much easier to wear than their cousin low-rise.  At least you know your booty won't be shown!  This will make the most of your waistline with a modern update to the classic high rise style.  High waisted pants underwent a revival among younger women recently and remained tight in the leg, but had a more relaxed fit in the waist. 

Last on the flavors of jeans is the "distressed" look.  These jeans have been intentionally damaged to look aged. The denim used for the jean is bleached to a faded blue to simulate age as faded jeans.  Want a vintage look?  Commercially distressed jeans have the addition of holes and tears. Strategically placed holes of varying sizes add to the vintage look, as do long, thin tears at the knee and cuff. Other distressed methods include stone washing, enzyme washing, acid washing, sandblasting, emerizing, and microsanding. These jeans can be worn with any type of footwear, from boots to sandals, and work well with any type of casual shirt.
