Skinny jeans have seen a fashion explosion for men for quite a long time. Some might say that this kind of jeans is only for men who have skinny legs. However, if you don’t, you will still be able to rock your look with skinny jeans. Just choose wisely the item and you are ready to go.
- Fit and Comfort
- Skinny jeans leaves little leg room, you have to make sure that you’re comfortable in it. Squat and bend over your legs to see if you are able to move freely or not. Make sure you’re not feeling too restricted. The stretch level form a band is different too. They also shrink differently after being washed. So you have to carefully wisely the right size taking this into consideration. A quick test to determine fit without wearing the jean: wrap the waist of your jeans around your neck. If the two end meet, then it should fit.
- Skinny jeans look good in most colors but it is better for you to stick with black if you have large thighs/legs. Black color will make you look slimmer, which after all is one of the key points of the style. If you are of a younger age, it is okay to choose brighter colors. We recommend the older and mature crowd to avoid bright color and stick with traditional blue or gray. Trend lightly on the color white, it doesn’t look good for most people. But if you do, by all means, rock that color.
- Shoes for Skinny Jeans
- The style isn’t complete without the right set of shoes. If you want to look casual, wear a pair of sneakers like Converse, All-Stars or Vans. Pick dressier boots or canvas shoes for a well-polished impression, which will accentuate your proportions. Avoid chunky shoes because it will give you clownish and unattractive look. Wearing the shoes in basic black or brown shoes is a good choice.
- The Tops
- Avoid baggy sweat tops and t-shirts or a vest, for casual wear. Find a fitted t-shirts or slim fitting hoodies to wear with your skinnies. However, picking a shirt that is too tight will make a feminine silhouette. Choose a shirt with muted colors so you will have a refined look with no curious stares from other people. You can also wear a blazer in basic colors of black, blue or grey.
