This explanation is more for the men than it is for the women because the skinny jeans style is coming into fashion, so it is creating some confusion for those not in the know. Matt for one was confused. During channel surfing, he noticed stories about skinny jeans, and how all the hot celebs are wearing them. He pointed out, “Hey hon, they are talking about your skinny jeans blog stuff on TV. Come see.” Rewinding on Tivo, I saw a stylist talking about the new fashion trend. I tried to explain to Matt, but he just tilted his head with a confused, “Ugh!”
Skinny jeans, the style, are a cut of jeans like saying bell-bottoms, straight leg, or relaxed. The skinny jeans style is pencil leg where the jean from top to foot hugs your leg. To look good in this style of jean, you really do need to be skinny. Although some argue that the skinny jeans style is like denim leggings. Throw an oversized sweater or sweatshirt over, and you’re Flashdanced. Over at Coquette, there is a fabulous synopsis of the skinny jeans style.
Here at Back in skinny jeans the blog, we are talking about the “concept” of skinny jeans which are the jeans (or pants) you wore when you were you’re thinnest and hottest. Your skinny jeans, probably sitting in the dark recesses of your closet, represent a magical time in your life, and you cannot let go of these jeans because the dream of thinness and magic still lives on.
