My name is Mitra Chester and we're at Deluxe Resale Boutique in Eugene, Oregon, and I'm going to talk to you today about how to wear skinny jeans. I think a lot of people, after the whole popularity of the wider end bell leg jeans are a little intimidated about how to wear skinny jeans. And, there's a lot of stigma attached to it. So, I'm just going to just talk about some ways to wear them that you can really pull off. As you can see, I'm wearing some skinny jeans, and I do have them cuffed which some people may not think is appropriate. You can wear them kind of cuffed and short, or the right length. The one thing you want to avoid with skinny jeans is excess length, because it will create some gathering at the, at the ankle area. You can also wear them with sneakers, sandals, heels. The most excellent thing with shoes about skinny jeans, is you can wear boots over them, any length and size. The one thing that I would avoid with skinny jeans is any kind of more bulbous or bulky types of shoes, because it can look like you have lollipops at the end of your legs. Other things to think about are tops, because skinny jeans give you a sense of kind of a little more shape, you can really pull off kind of tunic tops and dresses, or even really baggy tops. You might pair something like this with a waist belt, or even a hip belt, as long as it's long enough not to expose the actual belt line, you can also just wear it with a regular belt. You can dress them up by wearing them with a dressy tank top, or blouse, or down by just wearing them with a t-shirt. Men, can also pull off skinny jeans, but they're not a lot available out there in standard make for men. So, if you're not intimidated by the idea, often times you might try some women's jeans, but they actually look pretty good on men. And, men might wear them with just t-shirts, or pretty much the same way, that you would wear any other jeans. So, please don't feel intimidated by the skinny jeans, and just try some on. Just like any other jeans, you do want them to fit correctly. Skinny jeans does not mean their excessively tight in certain areas, you want them to fit in the, in the waist, in the butt, in the thighs. But, skinny just means that they're basically tailored along the leg from the hip down to the ankle. They do standardly make skinny jeans now, you can find them in a lot of different styles. But, you can also make your own by basically trying them on inside out, pinning them along your line, and just sewing your leg line, and just sewing that seam. So, please feel free to experiment with the style. And, if you're wearing anything with confidence, you can pretty much pull it off, so, good-luck!
