Why I'm Never Getting Rid of My Skinny Jeans

Every season, the fashion world christens the latest It denim style. One season it’s boyfriend jeans, another it’s high-rise, but there’s one style that I always fall back on: skinny jeans. As much as I covet the latest trends (hello, kick flares) I can’t seem to part with my small rotation of skinnies.

Not only is the style generally flattering, it’s simple enough to build an outfit on. You can layer your favorite pair under oversize sweaters or long tops without overloading on volume, and you can slide them into your tall boots without awkward bunching. Like your best friend, they’re there for to hold you close and offer comfort and support—so what’s not to love?

But I’m not alone in sticking to my fallback: Street style stars still keep them in their rotations too. Like a crisp white button-down or great pair of black pumps, skinny jeans are the staple that will always have a place in my closet—and hopefully yours too.
