The Fashion Risk I’m Glad I Took
Fashion Risk: Skinny Jeans
Only the love of her new knee-high boots could convince curvy, five-foot-three Natascia to get into skinny jeans. The 40-year-old attorney wanted to wear jeans tucked into her boots, and therefore they had to be slim. So Natascia tugged on countless styles until she found the perfect pair. The thick denim doesn’t reveal every bump, the 2 percent stretch fits her contours, and the dark rinse elongates her petite frame. (Their under-$30 price tag didn’t hurt, either.) “They may be called skinny, but you don’t have to be a stick to wear them,” she says.
To buy: Uniqlo jeans. Elizabeth and James blazer. Calvin Klein top. Nine West heels. Skinny ring.
