This year, when it comes to denim, I'm finding myself gravitating more toward straight and relaxed fits than usual, but by no means am I ditching my beloved skinny jeans. Instead, I'm finding it helpful to get really selective about the items I pair them with—you'll only find me wearing skinny jeans in 2018 if at least one of these six items are involved. Hint: Balance is key. When it comes to shoes, I'm loving tucking my jeans into chunky-soled boots (especially combat styles). See which looks are inspiring my skinny-jean outfits for the rest of the year.
