THE SKINNY JEANS' ENDURING APPEAL







I love the versatility of the Skinny Jeans in all colors & length (as you can see from this images :) and I think they are here to stay for a while. So, I looked around to see how some of the stars and personalities are wearing them. And, I found one of my favorite in a recent issue of Easy Living magazine, the TV presenter and girl-next-door Holly Willoughby, who discussed her life, loves and fashion choices. She loves to look glamorous like her mum by wearing a dress and spritzing on some perfume, but she also professes an enduring love of skinny jeans. Holly, it seems, likes to team her skinny jeans with oversize jumpers to balance out her look. This is great advice for curvier girls, and nails the current trend for wearing all things oversize on the top half of your body. Some people still hold to the myth that skinnies and drainpipes are only suitable for very slim frames, but in fact, as Holly shows, they’re perfect for flattering curves too. They really celebrate your body shape as they work with your curves rather than against them, and high-waisted styles look gloriously retro and are ideal for hourglass figures. 






For shorter ladies who are afraid of looking a little dumpy, always go for flats with a pointed toe, as these add extra elegance and make the foot look more streamlined. Ballet pumps can look a little blobby at the bottom of smaller frames. For the kind of laid-back look Kristen Stewart's favourits, team your skinnies with Converse All Stars or classic high-top trainers. You can still dress up your top half if you like, as the clash between glamour and trainers equals instant rebel cool.For chilly days, take Holly’s cue and layer up on oversized sweaters and cardigans. Not only will they protect you from the elements, they’ll also balance you out beautifully. For the evening, you could even team your skinnies with an oversized blazer for an urbane, androgynous look.

If you were afraid to wear them so far, and don't have one yet, I hope that this article helped in changing your mind. So, go out, get one and have fun in them! :)
