Royals and skinny jeans are two things that you don't necessarily associate with each other, that is, until now. The last year or so, women like Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton have proved that there is ample opportunity to make any pair of skinnies more polished. Employing staple pieces like blazers, button-down shirts, and pumps, these royals have created a sort of uniform that illustrates the power of a flattering pair of denim.
Why does this matter? Well, for starters, if you follow royal fashion, then this slightly untraditional approach is likely enticing to you. Also, we could all replenish our arsenal of skinny jeans outfits ideas and who better to turn to than women who are constantly attending events, traveling, meeting new people, and so forth? Think of this as your go-to guide for making your skinny jeans slightly more sophisticated. Below, we rounded up five brands that the royals turn to again and again for jeans, plus picks from each of those denim labels so you can grab a pair for your own closet.
The Brand: Mother
Markle's first outing at the Invictus Games with her then-boyfriend Prince Harry solidified our love for her cool, confident style. She paired a Misha Nonoo shirt with Mother skinny jeans, and the result was perfection.
Meghan Markle proves that a black-and-white color palette can be enduringly chic. She styled her Outland skinnies with a noir turtleneck layered beneath a white blazer. To finish, a striped shoulder bag and slingback heels.
The Brand: J.Crew
Back in October while in New Zealand, Markle made an appearance in a sleek look. She teamed a fitted blazer with her J.Crew skinny jeans and accessorized with a pair of equestrian-inspired boots.
