I've said 'bye bye' to skinny jeans and life is good again

1.06.2018


Firstly, yes I know the weather is so not 'hotter than hell' rn. 

At the moment I am so not enjoying my 5.30am starts standing at the deserted train station where the crisp chilled air literally hurts my face. 

But that's going off topic. 

In 2018 most of us have a bit of a wardrobe clear-out and I have decided to get rid of my skinny jeans once and for all. 

Yep, those tight f*cking trousers I wore solidly from about 2007-2011 have been on the decline in my wardrobe in recent years thanks to the more comfy mom jean option, quickly followed by the sassy 70s flare. 

Don't get me wrong, Topshop's MOTO Jamie Jeans will forever hold a special place in my heart. After all, they were what got me out of all my Jack Wills and Abercrombie clobber. Ah cringe.



However, over the past few years I have realised that I've simply outgrown them, both figuratively and quite literally. They. Will. Not. Do. Up.

Nowadays, the only skinny trouser you will find me in is one of a leather variety - after all, that is just timeless badass look you can't beat.


Other than that I am devoted to the mom jean for a classic everyday look. Or, a vintage pair of flares for those dressed up days or nights.

I know a lot of people are scared of flares, but there is really no reason to be. 

As long as you pair them with a fitted top, or tuck something in with a belt you're at low risk of looking like a whale. 

Plus, flares come in so many more sassy styles, I even have ones with lace inserts for a party party look. 

In fact - thinking about it - I've never met a flare I didn't like.


So, as well as chucking out those corset belts and bardot tops this 2018 - I urge you to chuck out those uncomfortable skinny jeans too. 

Because seriously - nothing beats the feeling of knowing that I can seize the day and go for big f*ck off dinner without having to undo my jeans button every. single. damn. time. 

It's quite liberating. 

So, just av a think about ditching those skinny jeans next time to get ready - scroll down to shop this post and to shop some seriously stylish skinny jean alternatives:

  2. I adore this outfit, honestly I haven't been able to handle skinny jeans for the past 3 years! I'd much rather wear a looser style as I think they can be so much more flattering!
