I honestly can’t remember the last time I wore skinny jeans. Perhaps two—maybe even three—years have gone by since a pair was even in my rotation. Now, rigid, non-stretch, looser styles dominate my wardrobe. In fact, I didn’t think I'd be needing to make room for skinnies in my wardrobe anytime soon, but, of course, things change.
Lately, I’ve noticed more and more of the many stylish girls I follow on Instagram bringing skinny jeans back and making them look even more forward than some of the trendier styles we’ve been favoring instead. Whether it’s pairing them with of-the-moment knee-high boots or an oversized blazer (or both), these looks actually have me wanting to check my storage for a pair. To see all eight of the outfits I'm loving for yourself and shop them along the way, just keep scrolling.
