The best skinny jeans are (let’s be honest) the ones that make you feel like the best version of yourself. They’re the ones that don’t sag at the bottom, bag at the knee, or need constant attention in order to stay put. In fact, they’re the jeans that sculpt and tone without you having to sculpt and tone.
The best skinny jeans are, above all, a pair that you can pull out day after day and feel really confident about wearing. But like all cherished fashion go-tos, there’s an amount of trial and error (aka research) that goes into locating them. It’s not easy to pinpoint the jeans you’ll want to wear on repeat when you’re trying them on for 10 seconds in a dimly lit changing room after a feast at Shake Shack. (Just me? Okay.)
