Every girl needs at least one perfect pair of skinny jeans. The secret to perfectly fitting skinny jeans is the fabric content. Never get 100% cotton skinny jeans because within an hour of wearing them, they’ll be a stretched out nightmare. The key is adding an element that naturally stretches and molds to your figure to remain snug. When you’re shopping for jeans, make sure that at least 2% of the fabric is made up of polyurethane, elastine, Lycra Spandex, spandex, poly, or some type of stretchy fabric. You should be able to wear the same pair of skinny jeans several times before you have to wash them. When it comes to choosing the right size of skinny jeans, there is no universal size, unfortunately. The best rule of thumb is to try them on and if they are comfortably tight, meaning you can button them and the waistband is snug but comfortable, then you have the right size. They will stretch slightly no matter what, but the more snug they are at first, when they do stretch they won’t look baggy. Everyone has their brand favorites, but some of the best skinny jeans are made by rag & bone
