Trends come and go, but the one fashion staple I will never give up for the sake of trends is skinny jeans! Skinny jeans are a petite girls best friend. They are very easy to style and best of all they really give you a great shape!
Jeans transcend all seasons. They are pretty much great for almost every occasion except a black tie event or a wedding. If I were to estimate, I think I spend 5 out of 7 days of the week in jeans. I love my skinny jeans. I have them in various colors too. Here are some ways I have styled my jeans over the years.
With a Leather Jacket
Want to transition your simple white tee and jeans combo into fall? Well throw on a leather jacket! Leather jackets and jeans look absolutely stunning in fall with a pair of boots. The look will give you a real biker babe aura! If you have a lighter colored leather jacket you could take the look into spring as well!
I love how distressed jeans with a blazer and a pair of pumps look ever so fab! It’s such a great look for a party. If you want to take the look into work then trade out your distressed skinny jeans for a pair of dark skinny jeans and your look will be professional.
Getting into fall and want to start layering? Then a tweed blazer over a pair of skinny jeans will look great at work. Wear a lovely silk blouse under it and you could kick off your blazer whenever you get a tad too warm. The tweed blazer could double as your jacket and keep you warm and looking fab!
Feminine Sweater and Booties
Skinny jeans look great with a pair of booties and a lovely feminine sweater. Fold the ends of your jeans above the bootie shaft to show off your booties. Pick a sweater with some flowy edges, top it off with a scarf, and viola your look is ready. When you have so much going on with your top the skinny jeans really give you the much needed definition on the bottom!
Slightly Oversized Sweater
Similar advice here to the look above. Here it’s an oversized sweater. It’s really hard for tiny girls like me to get away with wearing an oversized sweater. I love the look but find it hard to pull off. So I compromised on how oversized the sweater is. Here I have gone in for a slightly oversized sweater and skinny jeans, the skinny jeans help me not get drowned by the outfit!
With a Sweater Vest
Do you like the preppy look? Well the sweater vest is the best way to go about that! A sweater vest with a lovely silk blouse over skinny jeans and booties and you will look both preppy and professional. Pick a lovely necklace to finish your look.
The Patterned Sweater
The patterned sweater is a great add to your wardrobe. I usually go in for stripes or a floral print in my sweaters when I pair them over my skinny jeans. Toss on a scarf if you choose or a necklace and you should be set!
The Round Neck Sweater
This one is simple and used a ton in fall and spring. Skinny jeans, a round neck sweater and boots is all you need for this simple and chic look. The best part is you can go with one color for this look or pick one item for the pop of color. I have gone in for a bright blue pair of skinny jeans against a primarily black look!
I love my bright colors when spring comes around. I also love light layers. A beautiful floral scarf, a drapey vest and a sweater over a pair of skinny colored jeans will have you looking springy in no time! Again, with so much going on in the top, the bottom needs to be fitted and simple.
You can take the same idea into winter by throwing on a pair of boots! I went with Hunters to stay out of the slush when the snow melted.
Topped off with a Soft Flowy Top
Date night? Want to look chic and comfortable? Well then skinny jeans are really great for that! Pick a lovely soft V neck top, if it has some shape then leave it untucked. Pick a lovely statement necklace that’s high up around your neck and you’re ready. The look is easy and beautiful!
Very similar to the look above, the only real difference is the neck line. A round neck top allows you to wear a long necklace!
With a Kimono
A short kimono or a long kimono, they both look great when you are wearing fitting jeans!
Peplum and skinny jeans is my personal fav! It’s really great to have a peplum top that accentuates your hips and when paired with skinny jeans it looks perfect! It really does give you an hour glass figure.
A Lacey Finish
In my mind jeans are very tomboy, but you can definitely lady it up with what you wear with it. Lace definitely does that! This lovely white top with the delicate sleeves definitely accomplishes the task. You can definitely pick something lacey for your look!
Classic White Shirt
Light wash jeans and a white button down shirt is both classic and perfect! You can wear it with a pair of pumps, peep toe shoes or booties and you will have a perfect casual look for work.
The Patterned Shirt
Wearing a striped, gingham or plaid shirt with skinny jeans is so easy. It’s basically combining a pattern with a monochrome! All these looks are great for work. They also transcend seasons which is really awesome.
The Simple Tee
Most of the time the look we all go for is a simple tee and skinny jeans! This look is the easiest for any casual outing. Now you can spice it up depending on the season from a scarf to a necklace!
Denim on Denim
Chambray tops or denim jackets, both look great on a pair of skinny jeans! The denim on denim look won’t go out of style for a long time to come!
In spring or fall completing your simple denim look with a trench coat is definitely the thing to do! You can fold yyour trench coat sleeves up and make it an essential part of your outfit 🙂
Wearing a sweater over a top is known to everyone. If you want to be a bit warmer and also get a tad bit of the denim on denim look going make sure to wear chambray under the sweater. The look is easy and oh so lovely!
Simple Monochrome Shirt
It’s easy, it’s chic and it’s classic! Wear a button down colored shirt over your skinny jeans. Whether it’s a silk shirt or a cotton shirt it always looks amazing! You can always dress it up or down with your shoes and accessories which is the best part about this look.
With a Long Sleeveless Vest
This look is another one that’s great for work! Pair a long sleeveless vest with a button down shirt or a sleeved blouse over a pair of skinny jeans and you will look like a million bucks!
I hope I have convinced all my petite girls that skinny jeans are in fact our best friends!
