I Thought I Was Done With Skinny Jeans, But These Outfits Changed My Mind

I honestly can’t remember the last time I wore skinny jeans. Perhaps two—maybe even three—years have gone by since a pair was even in my rotation. It's not surprising, you need only look at the current spring/summer 2021 fashion trends to see that loose jeans are now on the rise. And a quick glance in my wardrobes shows that rigid, non-stretch, looser styles dominate. In fact, I didn’t think I'd be needing to make room for skinnies in my wardrobe anytime soon, but, of course, things change. Whether it’s pairing them with of-the-moment knee-high boots or an oversized blazer (or both), these looks below actually have me wanting to check my storage for a pair. To see all eight of the outfits I'm loving for yourself and shop them along the way, just keep scrolling.

This combo of a blazer, skinnies and combat boots is business-casual at its finest.

Shop the look:

Reformation Dama Pinstripe Cady Blazer (£265)

Denim on denim looks exponentially cooler with the addition of a long coat and statement boots.

A "borrowed from the boys" jacket looks shockingly chic when paired with jeans and knee-high boots.

Who knew all you needed to do was belt a puffer to suddenly transform it into a "fashion" coat?

Shop the look:

Mango High Waist Tania Jeggings (£30)
