Besides a few stints with capris in the early '00s, I exclusively wore skinny jeans until college. "What even are mom jeans?" I can practically hear my 18-year-old self questioning. Years—and plenty of denim trial-and-error—later I still fancy myself a skinny-jean girl. However, I'm now much more experimental with the styles, colorways, and embellishments I choose when it comes to my go-to pairs. Need some examples? I found 23 pretty epic skinny jeans that I'll probably need to hide from my basic ones for jealousy purposes. Clothes have feelings too, right?
