While I’d personally consider skinny jeans to be a classic wardrobe staple at this point, the denim style continues to skew on the polarizing side with many opting for more forward cuts like straight-leg blues or flares. And yes, while it’s true that fashion people gravitate towards those non-skinnies, skinny jeans still continue to crop up in various rotations.
That’s right, after recently scrolling through Instagram, I noticed a range of It girls wearing their skinny jeans proudly. But rather than styling them in a standard way, they opted to mix in 2020 trends for especially directional fits. To show you what I mean, I curated an edit of the coolest outfits in question for you below. Keep scrolling for a bit of visual and shopping inspiration, and breathe new life into your trusty skinnies this year.
