Five Alternatives to Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are definitely a staple wardrobe piece. They are easy to style and are always on trend meaning you can never go wrong with a pair of skinnies. Although these jeans are worn frequently, not everyone is a fan of the tight fit. For those out there who feel this way and want to mix up your wardrobe a little, here are five affordable alternatives to skinny jeans starting at £35 and under!

Zara Lace Trimmed Trousers, £29.99

The delicate lace detailing on these trousers make them unique and their tailored fit is flattering to the leg. These black trousers beautifully skim over the thigh, narrowing down to the bottom of the leg that’s detailed with bright white lace.  This single detail brings elegance to a classic, timeless design.  Styling this pair of trousers with delicate fabrics like chiffon, lace or silk will compliment the beautiful details

Matalan Printed Cropped Trousers, £16

Here are a pair of trousers for those looking to save money without compromising on print. The bold floral design holds its own and along with the cropped length make the perfect summer trouser.  As these trousers are neutral coloured go crazy with vibrant pieces to create a new and exciting look, or stay true to the monochrome palette.

Zara Trousers with Printed Sides, £29.99


If you’re not afraid of vibrant tones these printed trousers are for you.  Perfect for summer, and with a floral detail spinning down the sides, these fire red trousers are a chance to inject some colour into your wardrobe. At a bargain price, you’ll definitely stand out in the crowd! Dare to be different in this statement piece that’ll leave you the talk of the town.  Keeping it basic with a plain top is recommended, or stick to a similar colour palette.

Topshop Tall Pinspot Cigarette Trouser, £35

For all the tall girls, it can be hard to find a pair of full-length trousers that look and fit just right.  This pair fits the criteria nicely.  They are slightly more expensive (a con of needing a little extra fabric), but the simple yet bold polka-dot detailing justifies spending a few extra pennies. Keep this look casual with a plain top to let the trousers do the talking; or edge it up with some bold colours with contrast with the black and white print.

ASOS New Look Wide Leg Stripe Trouser, £29.99

These wide-leg trousers are a complete contrast to skinny jeans.  Combining style and comfort, these loose fitted pinstripe trousers are perfect for those wanting to achieve an elongated silhouette.
