Fashion People Will Wear These Tops, Jackets and Shoes With Skinny Jeans in 2023

Jeans wearers have been on quite the rollercoaster ride over the past few seasons. At the start of 2022, straight-leg cuts looked set to remain the most popular choice, yet as the year progressed, we saw jeans getting looser and looser on the catwalk and on Instagram (our two most-trusted sources). Now, in 2023, the leading denim trends sit at two ends of the spectrum: super wide or super skinny.

The latter might set off alarm bells if you, like me, associate skinny jeans with the early 2010s. But this form-fitting style is far from passé; since I've tuned into this revived trend, I've noticed it featured in so many cool, current looks. From simple looks with blazers and flats to more evening-appropriate ensembles, the fashion crowd are making me regret donating all my skinnies to a charity shop a couple of years back. 

Ready to open your mind (and wardrobe) to skinny jeans once again? Scroll on to see my favourite skinny jeans outfits below.

1. Bright Blazer + White Tee + Mules

Style Notes: Spring is all about colour (even if you're usually seen in top-to-toe black). Choose a blazer in a primary colour to pair with your skinny jeans.


Like all of COS' basics, this will slot into just about any wardrobe.

An affordable way to try out the skinny jeans trend.

2. Striped Jumper + Basket Bag + Flats

Style Notes: Using a striped jumper to make an outfit instantly chic almost feels like a cop-out, because it always does the trick. But if it ain't broke...


With just enough stretch to keep you comfortable.

You'll carry this bag with you all through the warmer months.

3. Animal-Print Top + Cat-Eye Sunnies + Heeled Mules

Style Notes: Zebra print is the new leopard print, and pairing it with denim makes it super wearable. Add mules and let the sun hit your toes once we enter summer.


Sheer fabrics are very on-trend for 2023, so this top ticks two boxes.

This light wash is perfect for spring. Just add sneakers and a tee.

Bottega Veneta's beautifully crafted leatherwork strikes again.

4. Trench Coat + Grey T-Shirt + Chelsea Boots

Style Notes: A trench coat is the ultimate springtime layer. Choose a cropped skinny jean to land at a similar point on your half.


This coat is exactly the right weight for this time of year.

This t-shirt has exclusively five-star reviews.

Dark-wash denim always feels dressier; you could easily take this pair from day to night.

We're still not over the chunky boot trend here at Who What Wear.

5. Relaxed Shirt + Suede Bag + Clogs

Style Notes: Easy, breezy shirts are made for casual weekend dressing. Keep the vibe casual with stretchy skinnies and some slip-on clogs.


You won't find a more timeless combination than blue and white stripes.
