So, you think you can't wear Skinny Jeans...

...We're here to prove you wrong!
We have so many women (previously myself included) who thought that they couldn't pull off the whole skinny jean look. I know what you're thinking, because I thought the same thing...My hips and thighs are just too big! I'll look way too big in those skinny jeans. Those skinny jeans are just for...well, super skinny girls. And then...I tried on a pair of our new Antique Rivet Skinny Jeans! Wouldn't you know it, they are now my favorite pair!
Who knew? A girl with hips can wear Skinny jeans!! LOL!!
The big misconception with this style of jean is that you actually have to be slim to wear this style. Not only is that statement entirely untrue, in fact, skinny jeans look great on many body types. It’s just how you wear them that can make or break the overall look.
From Angelina Jolie and Kate Moss to Jennifer Hudson, it’s obvious that fanatics of the skinny jeans don’t simple fall into one category of body type and shape. This curve hugging denim is great for casual everyday looks, simply paired with a flat sandal or wedge. But skinny jeans can easily make the transition from day to night, pairing well with a killer pair of colored or metallic heels.

Curvy? Try dark wash skinny jeans with a tunic or a lightweight unstructured sweater. Balance out the tighter bottom with a loose fitting top.

Bigger calves? Try tucking skinny jeans into boots.

On the short side? Wear heels with skinny jeans for a leg-lengthening look; pointy-toed flats also work.

Heavy thighs? Try wearing a longer tunic belted at the waist to camouflage thighs, yet draw attention to your thin waist.

Remember Skinny Jeans don't have to be skin tight! They come in a straight leg as well for a little bit more room.

My best tip? TRY THEM ON!!

Hope this helps you be a little more adventurous in your denim style.
