The Spring/Summer fashion forecast has once again promised us a colour block comeback for 2012, so I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to my love of all things ‘skinny’.
I am of course referring to the 2012 high street collection of skinny jeans in bold and pastel colours that even Howard Wolowitz (and his mother) would be proud of.
So, true to form, here are some of my personal recommendations in the hopes that they will be helpful to those of you who are looking to stay true to the colourful skinny trend!
ASOS is a favourite of mine, so starting with some staple pieces for every wardrobe, I would recommend these Ultra Supersoft Skinny Jeans in black from the ASOS Petite range – perfect for me at 5ft 2”- and these Supersoft White Ultra Skinny Jeans, also from ASOS. I think that something like either of these in black or white would be ideal for mixing with as many tops as you like in spring/summer paired with ballerina pumps, sandals or vamped up with court shoes or boots come autumn/winter.
If you are feeling particularly daring and wish to add somewhat of a wild child to your ‘skinny’ collection, try these low rise Washed Red Skinny Jeans or these awesome mid-rise Enamel Blue Coated Skinny Jeans, both from ASOS in gorgeous colours that are guaranteed to get you noticed!
Moving on to ZARA, I always find some excellent what I would call ‘classic’ pieces in this store. It’s a place that I always keep coming back to for inspiration in simple elegance and they have never failed me yet. I love this pair of Super Stretch Cropped Denim skinny jeans currently very reasonably priced at £29.99. You can wear these again and again and the same goes for this classic pair of Grey Skinny Jeans priced currently at £39.99, also ZARA.
I have also discovered a new place to shop for gorgeous and eye-catching skinny jeans, an example of which is this pair of Red Devil Skinny Jeans £30 and this pair in Jade at £35, both from Awear.com.
New Look have also really impressed me with their fantastic range of really affordable denim this season, their Parisian Super Skinny Jeans currently priced at £21.99 look like they are really selling like hot cakes and rightly so! If this pair doesn’t appeal to your individual tastes, do not fear, they have a wide variety of skinny jeans in really pretty and feminine pastel colours which are really flattering for lots of different shapes!
It was MANGO that came to the rescue in the case of a friend and favourite shopping buddy of mine who had searched in vain for the perfect pair of skinny jeans for a looooooong time.
After watching my friend fall head over heels in love with a pair of great fitting super soft skinny jeans in the MANGO fitting rooms that she immediately bought, I would definitely recommend that you visit this store and have a browse while on the lookout for your pair of perfect skinny jeans.
So there you have it! Whether you are just after a couple of staple items or whether you’re a fashion conscious fireball going for broke in the skinny jeans style stakes, these ideas should have you well on your way to skinny jean perfection!
