Are Skinny Jeans Over Already?

12/07/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Well, that was quick! Apparently our readers aren’t the only ones ready to retire the skinny jeans trend. Former drainpipe devotees Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton have come out in flared jeans in the past few weeks, and Rachel Bilson, who we thought looked adorable in her skinny jeans, has also moved onto wider straight leg jeans. We’re not chucking our skinny jeans yet — they are still the easiest cut to tuck into boots — but it looks like this trend is winding down. Do we hear a collective sigh of relief? Let us know.

WOW this Rachel girl, has a 10 y/o girl body !!

Well, what about if this trend is out? we all dont have to wear all that crap that Hollywood women wear !!

We are individuals, we are unique, and we have the right and the freedom to decide what to wear.
Let’s the uniform to these girls who dont have selfsteem for a change… =)

THANK YOU! Those suckers just seemed abnormal with the bunched up ankles!

They look like tights. Just wear tights if you want to wear skinny jeans. Wear them under your regular jeans. Then you can have the benefit of looking like you’re wearing regular jeans, but still have the benefit of feeling like you’re constricting your blood flow.

I’m actually one of those freaks that like skinny jeans ~ but I also like flared leg jeans, trouser jeans and boot cut jeans in a variety of rises ~ I have pairs of everything ~ the skinniest jeans I bought were J Brand’s 14″ cigarette ~ slim enough to tuck into boots but not enough to strangle your ankles and I will continue to wear them, along with all my other styles

Who cares what Nicole and Paris wear anyway ~ everyone knows they’re not self-styled

Um they’re not out yet. Sorry y’all. Do the celebrities have to wear them every single day for them to be “in”? We need variety. I’m sick of the flare/boot cut thing ALL the time for ALL these years. They’ll be around just so girls who look good in them can show them off to the haters :)

Thank god. I wasn’t a fan of those at all. You seriously have to be a size 0 and have no fat, i mean NO FAT or even muscle on your legs at all for them to look good. Not that i’m fat at all, but they just don’t look good on everyone. I’m more a fan of bootcut or flare/bell. They just look better. And who cares what Paris Hilton or Nicole Richie wear anyways.

Thank Goodness! I hate the skinny jean look and trend. I think it looks silly, and is by far the worst trend I have seen in a long time…even on the skinny girls! I am a size 7, and although that may be heavy for some people, I think it’s healthy, and still wouldn’t wear the skinny jean! Next.

I don’t think they are over you can wear skinny one day, flare the next, bootcut the day after that, straight another. What’s the big deal switch up!!!

Liz on
