Black Skinnies

I’d been looking for a substantial pair of black skinny jeans forย awhile – the ones I have are significantly more legging-like than jean-like and with my figure skater thighs, I cannot get away with wearing them as jeans unless I’m going out.

Enter: these zippiered-side skinnies from Target. They actually feel like pants but are tight enough that I could wear them with boots without having the awkward bunchy-knee situation that every girl fears. (Ladies, amiright!?)

Here’s my inspo:

 

I love the military-chic trend. Here’s my take:

Top: F21, Belt: H&M, Skinnies: Target, Pumps: GoJane, Lip: NYX matte lip cream in Antwerp

I love a good tuck situation. The older I get, the more I like tucking in my shirt with the right look – it adds a certain amount of polish to an outfit I think.

Happy styling! xoxo -A

  1. Speaking of tight pants, and, make no mistake, I do love ’em, I had a secretary one time who told me that when she was in high school, probably in the mid to late 60s, she would put on her jeans on a Saturday afternoon, sit in a bathtub of water and soak them and then let them dry on her. Once they were dry, they were nice and tight and ready for her to wear for her Saturday night date. Now that is some dedication to tight pants, ain’t it? I don’t think they had the “skinny jeans” back in those days, so they had to innovate. – Dave White
