Trend Report: Skinny Cigarette Jeans

Every fall, there's always a new fad that garners our attention. We’ve seen leggings, clunky necklaces, and girly flats (not to mention military jackets, boyfriend cardigans, and a slew of other must-have essentials). All have become part of our everyday wardrobe and trust me, the latest is no exception: Super skinny cigarette jeans. Forget the form-fitting denim styles you've seen in years past — these babies are tight, edgy, and come in a variety of styles, cuts, and washes. Here is a quick look at three cigarette jeans that can fit any wardrobe.


Urban Outfitters' High-Waisted Ankle Cigarette ($58.00) The perfect combination of vintage and sexy, these dark wash jeans are a wardrobe must-have because they're totally versatile and can be taken from night to day with the swap of flats to heels. For only $58, you can splurge and buy more than one of the dozen cigarette style jeans on Urban Outfitters website. Check it out here to find which fit works best for you. 


J Brand Bombshell Cigarette Leg ($158.00) A perfect summer white that transitions well past Labor Day, these skinny jeans have a contour waistband to eliminate ruching and look best when worn with boots or heels. Like all cigarette jeans, the leg opening from the knee to the ankle is the same, which causes the jeans to bunch up a bit – making it the perfect look with pumps.


Joe's Jeans The Straight and Narrow Cigarette ($158.00)  These pants stretch across the hips and have a slimming affect down the leg. They're also great when paired with tanks, tunics, and short dresses. Accentuate your natural waistline by adding a thick belt and then get out your sexiest pointy stilettos. You could even wear these jeans with peep-toes or ankle boots, but be sure to stay away from anything too big and chunky because it’ll take away from the slimming affect.
