Skinny Jeans Vs. Boyfriend Jeans: 13 Lucky Editors Sound Off On Their Favorite Denim Styles

"Asking me to choose between boyfriend jeans and skinny jeans is like asking me to choose between Cronuts and cupcakes—an impossible decision! Basically, I have one of each that I swear by. My favorite skinny jean right now is by a brand called AYR. It's actually the first skinny jean that I am truly, truly, completely and wildly head-over-heels in love with. There's just something about the fit that really works for me. The darker washes are my favorites. And then my favorite boyfriend jean is from a brand called Dittos. It's a vintage throwback kind of brand. [My go-to pair] is called the 'Charlie.' I love them because they're a boyfriend jean, but kind of tapered, and not too overwhelming. They have a nice utilitarian feel to them. Those are the best of both jean worlds!" - Eva Chen, editor-in-chief

Finding the perfect pair of jeans is a life-altering experience. It basically becomes a built-in airbag for your wardrobe: even when nothing else seems to fit right or match, you know this one thing will always work. You can constantly count on it to make you look taller, skinnier and cooler.

But what style, exactly, should this miracle-performing denim be? That's the Sophie's Choice question I posed to my fellow Lucky editors this week when I asked them to choose between a skinny and boyfriend silhouette. As it turns out, our staff has some very strong opinions on the matter (even if it's that they could never, ever choose, because it'd be like picking a favorite child!).
