Skinny jeans are kind of fashion magic. Why? Because of how many ways you can wear the same pair. They look as cute with flats as with your most towering pair of pointy pumps. They are generally snug enough to be tucked into tall boots - again, either flat or with a heel. And they look equally great, whether you dress them down for day, pair 'em with a vintage tee and spiky hair for more of a funky punk feel, slip them on with a flowy silk blouse for date night, or with a tuxedo or smoking jacket a la Kate Moss in the evening. Plus they're comfortable and make your butt look good. Whether you have one or wish you had less.
For Fall fashion is all about Gothic and crafty velvets (Erdem and Emporio Armani), embroidered animal print sweaters and novelty prints (Markus Lupfer & Giles), neon hues (especially Alexander Wang), pastels (Christopher Kane and Marc Jacobs) and gold with a kitschy, 60s vibe (Carven and Prada). All of which can look like fashion-victim overkill. Which is where your trusty skinnies come in.
As Santa would probably say if he were more into fashion: skinny jeans for all ages and body types!
