I'm Bored With My Skinny Jeans… What Should I Do?

by Nayiri Mampourian

Skinny jeans are the bread and butter of our wardrobes: They’re such a fundamental part of our fashion diet that we can’t imagine going without them. While we editors all agree that we need a pair (or three) in our wardrobes at all times, that doesn’t mean we don’t have our issues with this go-to style. Chiefly, how are skinny jeans meant to snugly fit in all the right places when we come in such different shapes and sizes? Why do they always gap at the waist? Why do we have to choose between jeans too stiff to get over our calves and way-too-stretchy denim that’s not capable of making our butts look great? Well, fall has confirmed that skinny jeans aren’t going anywhere, so we’ve decided it’s time for us to get this wardrobe staple right…

In our final installment of Denim Dilemmas, we answer three of your major skinny-jean issues—and as an added bonus, we found the perfect pair that ticks all the boxes. See why these jeans are our new favorites.

Old Navy Mid-Rise Rockstar Built-In Sculpt Jeans ($50)

Rejoice: We found a pair of skinny jeans that are both affordable and fashionable. We’ve told you in the past that some of our favorite fashion girls rely on Old Navy pieces to round out their denim wardrobes, but we especially love these jeans because of the fit. These Built-In Sculpt Skinny jeans are made with LYCRA® BEAUTY technology, which means there’s actual science behind how (and where) this pair of jeans sculpts and stretches. The result? Denim that’s flattering and comfortable in all the right places. Yes, we know, this is a life changer—you can thank us later.
