I'm Kinda Over Skinny Jeans


Skinny Jeans.

Skinny. Jeans.

I'm so over them. SO over them.

When these first started to hit the scene, I automatically thought to myself, "Pffffttt - great...as if finding jeans wasn't hard enough already, now I have to be mocked by what they're called."

Then, slowly, I came around to the trend and I bought myself a few pairs. Being a girl with a curve or two, I was pleased to find that even I could wear skinny jeans and I liked how they looked with my flats and heels.

Now, let's speed up to, well...to today, in fact. I stopped by Banana Republic on my way home from work to have a look at the jeans and all they had were skinny jeans. Bleh. I tried on a few pairs and they were okay, but I stood in the dressing room, looking at myself, and realized how incredibly and utterly bored I am of skinny jeans.

I miss flare legs. Wide legs. Boot cut.

I miss the look of really incredible heels framed perfectly by a bell of dark denim.

I miss throwing back to the 70's on a daily basis.

I miss being able to buy jeans that balance out the wideness that are my hips because, let's be honest, skinny jeans don't do us ladies with hips any favors in the world, do they?

The answer is no.

I don't know...perhaps I am totally uncool and old-fashioned but at the end of the day, I know what I like and I know what I feel good in and skinny jeans just aren't it.

Anyone else feeling me on this one? I suppose fashion always circles back around, so I have to believe the trend will swing back in my favor at some point.

Please swing back in my favor.

Tomorrow would be good.

Or today even. Whatever.

  1. I'm with you, I don't care for the skinny jeans myself, as I have a curve or two. Give me a boot cut and a wide leg anytime! Have a great day! xxoo :)

  3. Fashion is in confidence. You like boot cut? buy a pair! They're not out, just not as popular as the skinny jean! Wear them and strut them! If they make you look good, and more importantly you FEEL good ...then that is what matters
