Skinny jeans are hardly news these days. I know some of my friends were hoping they were on their way out....but no. Despite the fact that wide leg and trouser jeans are making another appearance, skinny jeans are still going strong. With good reason -- they are edgy, sexy, and, in the winter when the ground is covered with snow or slush, immensely practical. There’s nothing I hate more than coming in from the cold only to have the bottoms of my jeans soaking wet. A pair of skinny jeans tucked into boots is the cornerstone of my winter uniform. I do think that all body types can pull off this look. When skinnys are tucked into boots, the boots provide mass in the ankle region, which offsets mass in the hips/butt region. My only word of caution is to the faint hearted -- if you go the skinny route, they need to fit all the way up. There’s nothing more unattractive than skinny jeans that are tight around the ankle and loose on the butt. We don’t need stuffed sausage tight, but the fabric should actually be touching your skin. So this fall, if you haven’t tried the skinny, let’s get you in touch with your inner Kate Moss.
