They are the go to item for curvy girls, thin girls, and just about any age. they're the item you wear nearly every day of the week with nearly every top that you own, because they''re just so easy to wear. Every one has a pair, and they're super trendy as well.
They're sort of the uniform staple of nearly every girl ever, stylish and unstylish alike.
Basically, they make you just like everyone else.
So naturally I try to avoid wearing them as much as possible. I want to have personal style that stands out and is exclusively my own. If you don't, that's totally all right, but admittedly we all need a break from our usual uniform of black now and then.
Here are some alternatives to the black skinny jean.
I tried to find alternatives to the classic black skinny jean, Here is what I looked for;
-Pants that fit snug and flattered leg shape
-Pants that were very versatile, went with almost any colour/style/and other aspects of other items worn
-Pants that were extremely casual, didn't scream for attention, and:
-Other pants that were somewhat dramatic, but still wearable
-Pants that went with almost any style (bright, dramatic, reserved, glam etc)
Here you go!
1. Red Velvet Pants
These may be for the slightly more daring, but at night these look almost black and have a nice deep red sheen on them in lit areas.
These are pretty basic. Very similar to black skinnies, but they have a nice dark blue sheen to them, and I feel they'd be very flattering with almost anything.
3. Deep forest Green Pants
These are also velvet, but basically my point is any dark skinnies that aren't in black but i different colours that are very dark.
4. Navy Disco Pants
5. Black Disco Pants
Probably the closest thing to black skinnies here. These are more interesting than just plain black pants; they're shiny! super flattering too. I first got into them because of Zoella, they're like an updated version of classic skinnies.
6. Leather Skinnies
Edgy, and flattering with ANYTHING. They're very much like disco pants, but not quite. Try different colours like red, blue, tan, etc. Will give a fresh new look to any outfit.
7. White Leather Leggings
I know, white is included in "colours of leather pants" as I said above, ut I felt they needed their own category. I really like these leather ones with the seam down the front, but really shite skinnies would be great too. I just thought white leather was a super cool texture to update outfits with.
I also adore these grey leather ones!
7. Holographic Leggings
this is a wearable version of the trend, because as much as i love silver holographic pants, I don't think I could pull them off with my confidence level ( haha). These, I absolutely adore. Wear these with even a old black tee and you'd look glamorous.
8. Skinny Sweatpants
I chose these grey ones, but really black or white is just as basic and flattering. Skinny sweatpants, vs usual sweats, will match baggier tops as well. (You know; tight top, loose pants; loose top,tight pants look crazy good together?) plus, they're so casually sporty which is super hot at the moment!
9. Sporty Leggings
This is a very nice example because It's not neon pink & green screaming "I'm a hardcore athlete!" , no, these are just very minimalistic ones that will go with so many other things. The black/ white is flattering as well, and these are super classy even though they're athletic leggings (I didn't even know that was possible).
10. Skinny Trousers
A more classy, dressier and preppier option to skinny jeans. These are VERY flattering, and I;m in love with the crease. Personally, These make me feel like I'm some sort of exclusive millionaire or something.
11. Tan Skinnies
THESE!! Super preppy, and super classy. they go with EVERYTHING. Sorry for the caps; but every girls needs a pair. For me, I use a rule of thumb as to never haven tan pants match my skin tone. I feel a couple shades darker is much classier.
12. The Boyfriend Cropped Jean
Pale, distressed ugly boyfriend cropped jeans are super in right now, and if you get a plainer pair then they'll last you through many seasons, i feel so. Everyone should own these as well.They relax an outfit, and are the staple of every fashion blogger these days.
If you don't want to wear any of the above options, and still want a fresher look with black skinnies, just cuff them! For something a little more unique, you could roughly chop off a few inches form the ankles.
Which one of these will you try? Will you stick with black skinnies anyway? Want to know where tan item is from? Any other black skinny jean substitutes? Chat me up in the comments below--It makes my day! (:
