It wasn’t uncommon for rockstar men to wear women’s jeans a few decades ago, but as time changes and fashion evolves many people are left wondering, what is the perfect fit?
You had the baggy jean look doing its thing in the 90’s – that real boy/girl band look, but now, in the present day, it’s most definitely all about skinny jeans.
Women’s skinny jeans became popular almost ten years ago and men’s followed shortly after. Now it’s got to the point where our clothes and jeans are just never tight enough! Made popular by the likes of Harry Styles and Russell Brand, the extreme skinny jean is most definitely at its peak.
This may shock you, but a lot of guys tend to choose women’s skinny jeans instead of men’s because they have extremely slim legs and when it comes to denim, they can never find anything tight enough. But walk into any high street or designer retailer and you will see they are bursting at the seams with different designs, patterns and a variety of different shapes and sizes to suit everyone.
Body proportions are essential when choosing which skinny jeans look best on you. Taller, slender gents should aim for a standard, looser version – this ensures your shape is not overly exaggerated. For those who are well-built we would recommend rolling up the hems to balance things out a bit (note that fitted styles can still be worn!)
Skinny jeans that have rips, holes or cuts help to balance out proportions and help by giving a less severe look when it comes to fit. Rips on both the knees always go down a treat and are massively on trend.
