Skinny jeans could easily be classified as one of the most timeless denim silhouettes out there at this point (despite their sometimes polarizing nature). That said, new denim cuts (baggy styles and the like) enter the scene season after season to give those classic skinnies a run for their money. But there are actually a few simple ways to keep your favorite skinny jeans feeling fresh. It really just comes down to pairing them with forward, of-the-moment pieces.
To help replenish our index of modern skinny jean outfits, we often turn to our favorite fashion girls for inspiration. In fact, after scrolling through the ‘gram, it became evident that many of the style elite are wearing denim looks that feel particularly current and unique. Naturally, we rounded up the front-running ensembles for you here. Think of this as your guide for making skinny jeans impossibly cool right now and well into fall.
Style Tip: Experiment with an architectural statement top as an alternative to a standard button-down blouse. A pair of Mary Jane mules complete this A+ look.
Style Tip: Add just the right amount of edge to your favorite black skinnies with a band tee and an oversize leather jacket. If it’s slightly warmer outside, consider on-trend minimal sandals to soften the overall silhouette.
Style Tip: Elevate distressed skinny jeans in your off-duty life with a pretty polka-dot blouse. While just about any shoe style would work here, a playful pair of feathered sandals brings the entire vibe to a forward dimension.
Style Tip: The classic white tee and jeans look will feel so current with a cool outerwear pick like an oversize flannel jacket. If you really want to go for it, test out the matchy-matchy trend by coordinating booties in a similar hue.
Style Tip: Whether you’re looking for a polished denim look for travel or in your 9-to-5 life, this fit is for you. A blazer in a muted color (very right now) mixed with black skinnies and timeless loafers is a no-fail outfit formula.
Style Tip: While a trench coat paired with skinny jeans may seem pretty simple, it’s all about the shoe choice here. An electric pair of pumps offers up an unexpected twist to this now statement-making look.
Style Tip: A white blouse that feels slightly offbeat (note the slouchy fit) tucked into sleek skinny jeans with loafers is actually quite modern if you’re into that effortless, pared-down feel.
