The Skinny Jean Revolution

You thought it was just a fad.

You were told curvy girls couldn’t wear them.

You tried them on and uncertainty set in.

Now, every where you turn you see them. On the street and in the mirror, it doesn’t look like skinny jeans are going anywhere. Different from a “jegging” the skinny jean has made it into the hearts of fashionistas everywhere.You can call them cigarette pants, pencil pants, skinny pants or skinnies.

Originating in the 1950’s, they made a comeback in the 80’s, and now men are even wearing them?

I will admit, I was a skeptic at first. I tried on a pair at Torrid and I wasn’t sold on them. In fact, I kind of cringed as I looked in the mirror. But, today I own a few pairs and I love them. Skinny jeans go great with a flowy top or chunky knit sweater and a pair of my favorite boots.

This curve flaunting style has made it beyond it’s 15 minutes, but are you embracing it? Do you long for boot leg, wide leg, and flare cut jeans?

    i find it hard to put a pair of jeans on now that aren't skinny jeans. i definitely embraced the trend right when it first came out. but, i am willing to try the new one… wide leg denim ala 1970… just gotta find the right pair that won't swallow me up!

    I love skinny jeans.. Personally I have a flat behind and most regular jeans sag on me in that area, but skinnies dont! That for me is true love.

    Skinnies are definitely great but really depends on body types, just like Pam points out. Another huge trend these days is Jeggings – what are your thoughts on them?

    & I have found a few pair that are really flattering on me. Paired correctly with a nice top.

    You do have to be careful to dress for your body type. BUT Try on a pair! They are sooooo comfortable.


    I'm not too much into skinny jeans they make my feet look huge lol I mean they are huge but doesn't mean I gotta make them look bigger. I like flare

    I love Jeggings…I like when they are paired with a nice blouse and some pumps or heeled type shoe.
