Skillful Use of the Skinny Jean

Skinny jeans are essential for anyone who loves wearing boots or heels.  Worn correctly, skinny jeans can both slim and elongate the body.  My preferred skinny jean is slightly faded and more casual, but a darker wash gives a more formal look and enhances the slimming effect of the jean.  Here are some of my favorite skinny jean outfits.  Many of them use other essential pieces and most are easy to recreate.

The Crisp, Clean and Classic White Button-Up

A fitted White Button-Up shirt is an essential piece of any stylish wardrobe because it is incredibly versatile and can easily elevate the “classy” perception of an outfit.  The white button-up shirt makes almost any outfit look well thought out and well put together.  Here are just a few of my favorite ways to wear this classic piece.  Remember, almost all of these outfits can be tailored to what is already in your closet.  Just get creative!
