Slim jeans are always a winner
In recent years we’ve seen the huge explosion of skinny jeans on the market.

However, this season sees the skin tight style get pulled to the wayside for much more softer look. The slim fit jean encompasses the fitted silhouette that was so appealing about skinny jeans but in a much more flattering way. The emphasis has shifted from a painted-on look to achieving a more tailored aesthetic.
