Love them or dread them, skinny jeans aren’t going anywhere, except perhaps in your closet or wrapped on your body. The myth that skinny jeans can only be worn by thin people is just that, a myth. The term “skinny” as it relates to the jeans refers to the cut of the pants, as the pants fit straight up and down. Stretch skinny jeans work real well for expanding and fitting various body types.
Skinny jeans are worn by both men and women, generally have an extremely tight fit and have a tapered leg. Skinny jeans are made of denim. You know a true skinny jean by the snug fit through the legs, and the hem ends in a small leg opening that can be anywhere from 9 inches to 20 inches, depending on the size of the pants.
The skinny jeans style of pants are also known as slim-fit pants, drainpipes, stovepipes, tight pants, cigarette pants, pencil pants and skinnies.
Get the true skinny on skinny jeans!
In addition to blue denim, skinny jeans can be found in most all colors, and many times the pants material contains some spandex (2% to 4%), which makes the pants easier to put on and take off, and allows the fabric to cling to the body. Some styles of skinny jeans have bottom hems that actually hug the ankles.
Skinny jeans look great in both high waisted and hip hugger cuts. Depending on where you are going or what accessories you are wearing, you can dress down with skinny jeans, or ramp your look up. For a casual look, why not wear tennis shoes and a T-shirt along with your skinny jeans? For a look that is dressy and classy, go with denim skinny jeans, a silk blouse and four or five inch heels, preferably patent leather. This creates an aura that appears chic, stylish and trendy. Drape a strand of pearls around your neck to add the last splash of classic!
Since the 1950s, skinny jeans have come in and out of style. In contrast to the bell-bottoms that were huge in the 1970s, many punk rockers and glam band artists continued to wear tight skinny jeans (think Poison, Motley Crue and Bon Jovi).
Fashion is all about taking risks and finding your unique, signature style that works and defines you! Whether you’re a man or a woman, this famous saying holds: To thine own self be true!
Remember, wearing skinny jeans doesn’t mean you have to be a “skinny-minnie”! As long as your jeans fit well, and you feel like rocking the mainstream jeans, then you’ll look swell! For those of you who prefer the look of skinny jeans, yet you want a bit more room and comfort, there are cuts of jeans that come close to the skinny jean but leave your hips and legs a touch of breathing room!
Perhaps you’re someone who craves beauty and fashion, but doesn’t dare to wear much denim. Why not slink the stylish you into a new pair of jeans and become the denim diva star that you are? Wow, a brand new you! Who knew?
Skinny jeans are ideal for tucking into boots (ankle boots, knee high boots and/or thigh high boots) as the pants fit tight on the calves and ankles, allowing the pant legs to stay snug in the boot, and not slink up and out! No continuing to tuck your pant legs back into your boots all day! In some styles, zippers are needed at the bottom of the legs to help you pull the pants over your feet. I think skinny jeans with zippers near the feet are adorable and a visual fashion treat!
Sexy, sassy, stylish and keen, look your best in an alluring pair of skinny jeans, you gorgeous fashion machine!
“I need a pick me up today. Perhaps I’ll go to the mall.”
“A day of shopping and pampering ourselves helps us all.”
“I’m thinking of buying a black velvet blazer and a fitted pair of jeans.”
“You’ll look like a sexy siren vixen…truly make the fashion scene.”
“I might get a patent leather clutch and patent leather stiletto heels.”
“With bargain prices, the walking fashion plate will find great deals!”
