Time to step out of your comfort zone.
Sure, you love your skinny jeans. They were your daily uniform, your ultimate throw-on-and-go piece, your wear-with-anything favorites. But why not consider some other denim styles that are — wait for it — just as good and maybe even better? Taking your cue from Gen Z, who seems to have a disdain for fitted denim, it’s try to time out a few skinny jeans alternatives.
Denim is the most hard-working item in your closet, no matter the style. It’s at the top of the wardrobe essentials food chain. And your tops, spring jackets, and even dresses will pair just as easily with flared and ankle crop styles as they do with skinny jeans.
Those high-waisted straight-legs? Basically just an extension of your skinny collection — but this style fits better over a platform shoe. The flares? The ‘70s-inspired jeans look just as killer with a tank bodysuit as they do with a statement blouse. And your ankle-crops? They’re honestly the most flattering denim style to show off your footwear. In fact, they may even replace your love of skinnies all together.
Ahead, find all the best denim cuts to try, even if you are a skinny jean lover at heart. You might just find your new go-to pair today.
