Skinny jeans that is.
Done and done. Not to be worn any longer.
Skinny is out and straight to wider legs are in. Best not to blink or we may have missed the memo.
Mostly I don’t care much if something is on trend or not but I will admit to leaving my skinny jeans behind a while back. I can’t take credit for being “in the know” more I liked wearing a slightly bootleg/shorter leg style. They felt more flattering and I found them comfortable to wear. The higher waist and the less restricting leg won me over. My skinny jeans, as much as I swore by them, are probably not the most comfortable – more like being wrapped in cling film and hoping for the best.
Strange to think the skinny is over and I’d say for the fashionistas out there who care, it is. Skinny jeans and ballet flats were a match made in heaven for many years; it was my travel outfit of choice and my work warrior. Skinny jeans were such a novel idea when they first replaced a traditional straight cut and they were the coolest jeans I knew after my Levi 501’s. My ’30’s and early ’40’s are defined by a pair of button up Levi’s. For the sake of fashion, I too adopted the skinny and thought I would never look back.
The skinnies have gone and I’d like to be back in the 501’s or a look-alike equivalent.
Talk about fickle but isn’t that the beauty of fashion and being female; if we want to go full circle, we can and we must.
Jeans are designed in all shapes and styles and we can have an entire wardrobe of different pairs if we want. Why not wide-legged one day and cropped the next or straight followed by a bootleg? High waisted and a button-up or mid-rise with zipping.
The white jeans have been my winter staple since before the holidays but now I’m ready to re-wear the blues. Blue denim and I have been avoiding each other but it’s time to stop all that nonsense and get back into them. Right about now the blues, with slightly wider but shorter ankle length, work with or without a jacket, with or without a heel. When the middle excess obliges and disperses those excess rolls into oblivion they look the best with a simple white tee and tailored jacket. Jeans worn well can never be beaten.
Skinny or not, a buffet of blue denim is ours for the wearing. xv
