    Dare to add a minimal classic touch to your skinny jeans: try them with a denim shirt with flounces (the monochrome style will add ‘verticality’ to your silhouette), and a plaid trench. If it’s a little colder, don a trench coat over a turtleneck with your skinnies and make it extra classy by adding a camel mini-bag.
