These Chic Outfits Prove Skinny Jeans Aren't Dead in 2020

While I’d personally consider skinny jeans to be a classic wardrobe staple, the denim style continues to be polarising, with many opting for more forward cuts like flares. And while it’s true that fashion people gravitate toward non-skinnies, they continue to crop up regardless of what those in fashion love. That’s right: After scrolling through Instagram, I noticed a range of It girls wearing their skinny jeans proudly. But rather than styling them in a standard way, they opted to mix in 2020 trends for directional fits. To show you what I mean, I’ve curated an edit of the coolest outfits in question for you below. Keep scrolling for a bit of visual and shopping inspiration to help you breathe new life into your trusty skinnies this year.
