Like many things in life, overuse can result in boredom. Such can be the case with denim. While it’ll always be a classic you rely on to complete many a look—particularly skinny cuts, which are universally chic—you may not always feel inspired by them. It might take a pair of embellished skinny pants, in a fabric other than basic blue or black denim, to get you excited about what you’re wearing from the waist down.
Skinny pants come in a huge variety of patterns, textures, and colors, while still maintaining their semi-snug fit through the legs and ankles. They’re the perfect pair of bottoms to pair with oversized sweaters, over-the-knee boots, or tucked-in boyfriend-inspired button-downs.
