The skinny jean has been a wardrobe staple for several years. But are they again a staple for Fall of 2012? The answer is yes, with a new twist, of course! This season’s skinny jeans come in a rainbow hue of colors, textures and prints, as well as basic denim. Skinny jeans this Fall are so much more than than plain ole’ denim!
Well, because nearly everyone, with the right fit, can wear skinny jeans – and look great doing so. Skinny jeans pair with so many clothing options – tunics and tees, blazers and crisp white shirts. Wear them above ballet flats and three-inch platform heels, or tucked into short or tall boots. Wear them all dressed up for a casual office day, or dressed down for a day on the soccer field. With so many versatile options to sport a skinny jean, it’s no wonder that a great fitting skinny jean continues to be a “must have” clothing staple this Fall.
