Don’t worry I’m not gonna break into rhymes right now, and I’m also well aware this Q and post are long due, it’s just that the new jeans are everywhere these days, so I had to talk about it. Listen, when skinny jeans started to slowly die I died a little inside. Also I panicked. I mean, what the hell am I supposed to wear now? Boyfriend jeans, flare jeans? They’re okay but they don’t fit my bum properly nor make my legs look long and skinny. So I continued to wear skinnies. (well… I still do even today sometimes, when I’m feeling more ‘sexay’ or something. What? They still look great and can be very flattering.)

However, even the most fashion immature ignoramus grows up eventually, so here I am today loving skinny jeans less and crushing hard over classic denim jeans instead. Which brings me to the answer of what jeans to wear instead of skinny jeans?

Well… there’s the mom jeans, the classic levis jeans, the boot cut, straight leg, cropped jeans, flare jeans, high rise, mid rise, low waist… need I go on?

{And of course there are days when skinny jeans are my fave. Still. Hey you know what they say, you can take the girl outta the skinny jeans but you can’t take the skinny jeans outta there girl.}

 

And then something else happens when you stop wearing skinnies… you suddenly have endless denim choices and outfits that look more grown up and more sophisticated. Truth is the death of skinny jeans brought a new denim trend that sits somewhere between the 80s and 90s style jeans, very classic, somehow relaxed cut, but still following the body’s curves. There’s a lot of play with length, and leg design, and also waist line.

 

Fave jeans

Personally I will always wear high waisted jeans, mid rise at most, and never ever low waist. I love my denim jeans in blue, fitted around the waist and bum, but also slightly relaxed, and a bit cropped. And no matter how old I am I’ll always love and wear knee ripped jeans.

When it comes to styling jeans in 2019 it’s all about the shoes, from low heel or no heel mules, to sexy stilettos, or block heels the prettier the shoe the better. Like I  always say… it sets the tone of the outfit.

Top wise anything goes with denim, but white will forever be my all time fave. And polka dots are my new fave thing.

So… do I still wear skinny jeans? Hell yeah, but not as much. I’ve worn them maybe once a month lately, and I’m very excited for days outside the house, running errands, or just going out to wear and style classic jeans. I know… I know not exactly an existing scenario for many.

And now I’ll leave you with a million jeans outfits.

What can I say, I’m a denim girl.
