How to wear a style staple: skinny jeans

Skinny jeans are an essential in any wardrobe. Dress them up, or dress them down, they can suit any occasion! We’ve picked our top five ways to style this classic pair.

For the school run

We all have those “throw on clothes and run out the door” moments, and skinny jeans are the ideal grab-and-go piece to have in your wardrobe. Paired with a white T-shirt and a biker jacket, and you look instantly put-together, with very little time or effort spent on styling. Add a pair of trainers and a pair of earrings, and you’re good to go!

Feeling the chill? Swap your T-shirt for a jumper, or your jacket for a coatigan, for a cosy yet effortlessly chic ensemble with the same low-maintenance feel.

For a day with the girls

Whether you’re hitting the shops or being a lady who lunches, you can dress your jeans in a smart-casual way that’ll leave you feeling stylish but still comfortable. A blouse or a shirt paired with jeans hits the perfect balance between laid-back and elegant, while adding a fitted blazer quickly elevates your look.

As for shoes, a pair of block heeled ankle boots will give you a lifted look, and when paired with the slim-cut of your jeans, will help to create the appearance of elongated legs. Plus, by opting for a block heel, you’ll feel more comfortable as you’re getting the steps in.

For a day at work

Okay, so not jobs are jeans-friendly. But when styled right, dark denim jeans are a great alternative to more traditional trouser styles. A crisp white shirt will look beautiful against indigo washes, while an all-black ensemble will help to create a more streamlined figure so you can feel at your most confident.

All you need to add is a pair of heels and some statement jewellery, and you’re ready to show the world you mean business.

For out on the town

Going out for dinner with the family or heading out for a few cocktails? Denim is a great way to highlight some of your glitzier blouses. By wearing skinny black jeans and a pair of black boots, embellished blouses and tops can really do the talking. Pile on some colourful jewellery and a sparkling clutch to really raise the glamour stakes!

For when it’s colder

Denim and knitwear are a match made in heaven. The slim-fit of the jeans means you can go for thicker tops and layers, without creating a bulky or unbalanced look. For a cosy cold-weather look, try a white shirt layered underneath a round-neck jumper, and add a blazer or coat to really amp up the warmth.


For the chilliest days, skinny jeans look great underneath a parka, so you don’t have to suffer for style!
