The Non-Skinny Jeans Edit

February 17, 2021

I may not be “active” on Tiktok and my tween isn’t telling me that skinny jeans are out, and I promise this post is not supporting those claims. You know I will forever be a skinny jean girl, but am happy to try some other options for the sake of fashion and in some cases, comfort. Every single retailer is jumping on the non-skinny jean trend so I had to see what the fuss was all about. I tried each pair on with a simple tee and a pair of sneakers and then styled each pair with a different shoe option to see what was the best fit. Let’s see what non-skinny jeans are your favorite.

The Slim Straight with Split Hem

Tee | Jeans | Sneakers

Puff Sleeve | Jeans | Sandals

The Jean: The Paige Cindy High Waist Split Raw Hem Straight Leg Jeans

The Fit: Slim at waist and through thigh – slim straight from knee to ankle. Raw hem with finished side slit. High Rise with super stretch fibers.

The Styling: Adding a little shoulder interest helps to balance a straight fit jean – while the raw hem makes these feel more casual. A sneaker or sandal work best with this length, but can easily be dressed up with a wedge or heel.

The Kick Flare with Raw Hem

Tee | Jeans | Sneakers

Sweater | Booties

The Jean: Abercrombie Ultra High Rise Kick Flare Jeans

The Fit: Ultra High Rise – slim at waist and through thigh. Wider circumference at hem with raw edge detail. Rigid fit with some stretch.

The Styling: To highlight the waist a slouchy sweater pairs perfect with the kick flare. A sock bootie helps to streamline the look.

The Ankle Flare Light Wash

Tee | Jeans | Sneakers

Henley | Mules (old, similar)

The Jean: AG Rhett Vintage High-Rise Straight

The Fit: High Rise slim at waist – straight through thigh to hem. Light wash with little stretch, but light weight feel.

The Styling: A v-neck top will help to elongate the body and an easy mule adds a peak of ankle.

The Ankle Flare Medium Wash

Tee | Jeans | Sneakers

Sweater | Mules | Bag

The Jean: Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Lockwood Wash

The Fit: Mid Rise – slim through waist and thigh. Slight kick at hem in a dark wash.

The Styling: Keep the look classic with simple touches. An easy v-neck sweater and chic mules make this a go-to look. The slightly higher hemline on these jeans make them the perfect match with a flat shoe.

Tee | Jeans | Sneakers | Sandals

The Jean: The AG Ex-Boyfriend Slim

The Fit: Mid Rise – Relaxed yet slim fit throughout. Hem can be cuffed or un-cuffed. Little stretch, but lightweight fabric.

The Long Flare

Tee | Jeans | Sneakers

Heart Tank | Shoes

The Jean: Frame Le High Flare or here or here

The Fit: A classic flare silhouette – high rise slim through waist and thigh – flare fit at hem.

The Styling: Depending on your leg length this silhouette is most flattering with a heel – I like to stick to an open toe sandal or pointed boot.

The Long Straight

Tee | Jeans | Sneakers

Chambray | Booties | Strap | Bag

The Jean: Abercrombie 90s Relaxed Ultra High Rise Jeans

The Fit: This fashion shape is a modern take on a 90s trend and quite the opposite of skinny jeans. High Rise and slim at waist, straight through thigh and wider at the hem. Rigid denim with little stretch.

The Styling: I liked this jean with some added height in the from of a bootie. A tucked button down makes this silhouette feel more pulled together.
