Men can wear women’s skinny jeans too…
If you are a guy like me, finding a pair of skinny jeans that aren’t still baggy from the men’s department can be a struggle. With the exception of brands like Ksubi, Nudie, and Cheap Monday releasing super skinny styles that barely cut it, creeping into the women’s section is our best chance of finding jeans that fit. And with the movement towards higher rises, the idea is not as taboo as it once was.
This struggle is a benefit, not just by fit, but also by style. With men’s washes usually always leaning towards the cleaner and smarter side or releasing styles inspired by women’s a couple of seasons after, choosing a pair of skinny jeans by the ladies can open a range of choices that were never there before.
Some people do still think that wearing women’s jeans is a no no if you are a guy, however most of the time you can’t even tell the difference. Celebrities like Russell Brand and Harry Styles are often reaching for the ladies jeans, ensuring they have a super skinny fit right the way to the ankle and it looks good on them.
Like I mentioned above, high rise jeans for the ladies are very popular right now and that means that us guys can wear them slightly lower on the hips so that the crotch drops, making sure they don’t look like women’s jeans in the slightest. It’s a great way of getting really tapered, slim fitting jeans for guys with slimmer legs like myself.
So, whether it’s distressed styles from brands like Rag & Bone and Paige to more classic jeans by J Brand and Citizens of Humanity, you can see the women’s styles that have become some of my personal go-to’s and more below. I definitely recommend them if you are looking for a flattering skinny for slim legs.
