The most ironic thing about the skinny jeans is that they never make you feel skinny enough. Whether yours were stretched around the thighs or dropping from the knees below, we’ve all put in countless hours shopping for and squeezing into our skinny jeans. However, the right pair of jeans is not skintight anymore and we couldn’t be happier.
The blue jean landscape is anything but orthodox – from straight to slack, cropped to culottes, the choices are endless. In the endless array of denim design it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Take it from the seriously stylish, there’s really no limit to how many cuts, colours, washes, lengths, and types you can own. Lucky for you, we’ve broken them down into 5 fabulously chic pairs of true blues that your wardrobe must-have to slay summer street style.
