5'6" 110 lbs. (Skinny) – What kind of jeans should I wear?

I am 5’6″ and 110 lbs, skinny built. What kind of jeans should I wear?

I keep reading conflicting advice about not to wear skinny jeans, but wear slim jeans, and vice versa. Or, not to wear boot cut, but instead wear straight fit.

So, I’d like your take. Which jeans would best flatter me?

  1. Jeans are fairly pricey now and finding some that will fit you well in slim fit will be very difficult. For the price you might as well go custom tailored and get a pair of jeans that will fit and look great.

  2. I’m similarly skinny (but taller) and have had good luck with slim-fit jeans. I don’t wear anything too fancy, but most of the major brands like Wrangler and Levi have slim-fits that work fine. I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything billed as a “skinny jean” — I don’t like my pants to look spray-painted on.

  3. I was looking for jeans and was looking at some Levi’s. I never even considered the 511 skinny stretch but a friend recommended I try it. I was blown away by the fit and comfort, I’m a short 5’4, big thighs and bum guy. The point here is try some cuts, maybe not ULTRA skinny but try skinny then straight or any in between. The point here is don’t count out without trying out and you maybe surprised. Bring a sister if you have one or someone who will be straight with you. If you have skinny legs don’t wear super ultra skinny but find one that will flatter and maybe even give you some weight down there, just don’t go super relaxed either. Try 511s in your waist size or one less size. If not Levi’s at least you’ll have an idea of what you want.
