Wait, Did Emma Watson Just Bring Skinny Jeans Back?
It’s official—skinny jeans are back. In a rare public appearance, at the Schiaparelli Haute Couture show no less, Emma Watson took on fashion’s most divisive jean style with a playful take on proportion that included grey skinnies, an architectural blazer and chunky Doc Martens for good measure. What makes this outfit so noteworthy isn’t just the return of skinny jeans (though we must admit, we’re completely won over), it’s the impact that comes from the perfectly balanced structure of the look.
The harmony is all based on dimension, with the dramatic lapels and cropped silhouette of the Schiaparelli blazer, contrasting the slim cut jeans. Add in the clomping, flat sole chelsea boots, and Emma has created a striking silhouette worthy of Couture Fashion Week.

Amongst the mini dresses and heeled looks donned by most couture-week attendees, Emma Watson opted for a more understated style that paired classic French minimalism with DMs, adding an undisputedly British touch. Proving that, at times, less is definitely more. Though we may not have couture blazers at the ready, we intend to take a leaf out of Emma’s book by recreating this skinny-jeans-and-flat-boots look.
If, however, you parted with your skinny jeans a few years ago, here’s a selection to ease you back into the style. Then, complete the look with chunky chelsea boots.
