2) What Shoes to Wear with Skinny Jeans

The shoes are an integral part of the outfit, the key accessory to your look. You know we are fans of the hightop sneaker, but finding the right pair is important so you don’t  look like you’re on your way to explore the Arctic in a pair of tennis rackets. Best to pick a slim pair of hightops or a flat trainer.

3) Skinny Jeans – The Correct Top

Above waist again we’re talking easy on the bombastic patterns and shimmering colors. Keep faith in subtle patterns like stripes of plaids. If you have to do a stripy “Where’s Wally” on it go for broad horizontal stripes in dual color. Naturally go slim with the t-shirt because anything bigger will make you look like a stork-a female stork at that. A tuck in shirt will look cool (as long as it’s tucked in, doh!) and for the love of baby Jesus avoid wearing “V” neck tees. Tie yourself up nicely with a broad belt but don’t go for an embossed trendy one or there’ll be a smell of desperation off you all night. Follow this advice and maybe, just maybe, you will perfect the delicate art of how to wear skinny jeans.
