If you want a modern, streamlined casual look, slim jeans are always an essential building block. Many people get slim jeans and skinny jeans confused, and it's easy to see why. Both styles fit close to the leg, and are often constructed with a decent amount of stretch.
If you were to lay out a pair of slim fit jeans next to a pair of skinnies, you'd struggle to see much difference. But there are subtle characteristics unique to each style. Slim fit jeans feature a narrow leg opening which narrows as the leg runs towards the ankle, contouring to the shape of your body while still allowing you plenty of room for movement. Skinny jeans usually have a slightly tighter fit around the hips and legs.
So if you want a close fit but a little ‘give', slim fit jeans are the way to go. Especially if you're plus size and don't want the fit to be too tight.
Choosing your style
Once you've pinpointed slim fit designer jeans as your go-to option, it's time to consider the various options available on the market. From black through grey to light blue, boot cut to taper fit, premium raw selvedge denim to torn, distressed vintage blue, high-rise to low-rise, there's so much to choose from.
It's also worth considering those little practical elements to make sure you choose the perfect pair. Decide whether you're a button or zip fly kind of guy, and whether you want a classic five-pocket style jean or, if you'd like a more military style, have a look for flap pockets.
Styling your slim fit jeans
To continue the streamlined theme, it's best to keep layers to a minimum with your slim fit denim. We love the look of a crisp white tee and a good old tweed blazer paired with bleached or dark blue slim fit jeans. Add navy suede shoes and you've got a recipe for smart/casual excellence that goes from work to drinks with ease.
Finding the right fit
When shopping for jeans, it's essential to know your dimensions to a tee. Use a tape measure to get your measurements, and use these as a guide to find the right slim fit pants for your shape.
