Why Skinny Jeans Are Hell on Earth

This post was written as part of a collaboration with Monki. All links featured are affiliate links.

Until very recently I had given up on skinny jeans. They clung to every inch of my body I hated and sagged in areas that should ~ never ~ be saggy (I’m looking at you kneecaps). So I’ve lived in Mom jeans or straight fit jeans. Until more recently, I had the opportunity to take part in a denim campaign with Monki. I saw they had a pretty cute pair of mid-rise skinnies so I decided that they were worth a try, but in all honesty, expecting to love the Mom pair they sent me more and never wear the skinnies.

If it wasn’t obvious enough yet ~ shock horror ~ I love the skinny jeans. What is their magic?! I don’t know. But they cling to me in the perfect places, tight on the booty but a little looser on the tummy. Wrinkles showing they’re not spray painted on but no baggy knees 🙌🏼 They’re suuuuper stretchy which makes them really comfy, but also fairly think material so you can feel the quality in them. Also, 🤞🏼that means they won’t wear through/rip in about 10 minutes like those high street skinnies we all can’t seem to stray from (I, for one, will never buy again though).

As I see it, jeans should be an easy option. They’re a wardrobe basic to me, I want to have 3-4 trusty pairs that I know I can throw on whenever I want but will always look good and be comfortable. I want to go through my day without pulling and adjusting and worrying about whether they’ll split when I bend down to pet my pup ( ~ cough ~ Orson jeans). The Mocki jeans give me all of this.

I guess I’m trying to say two things here really, high street stores – step your game up because Monki is lapping you and if you fell out of love with skinny jeans check out this pair because I promise you’ll fall back into love.

OH, and if you do want to get your hands on a pair, they’re 20% off until midnight CET.
