Style File: The Skinny on Legs
http://www.style.com/stylefile/2009/...kinny-on-legs/

May 12, 2009 2:58 pm



Make of this information what you will: I was recently informed by the publicists for both Acne and Ksubi that the denim makers will be introducing their “skinniest jeans ever” for fall. (Same wording, both times.) Given that neither Acne nor Ksubi has ever been known for the roominess of their fits, this bit of spin struck me as either specious or confirmation of the fact that the long, skinny leg is coming back with a vengeance. Look at the Fall runways—leather leggings, over-the-knee boots, mini everything. Sigh.

I've got several pairs from Primark for less than £8 a pair. I don't wear them for 'best', but for work and just going round town they are great and pretty decent quality considering the price.

^ The superskinny, painted on jeans should die away. Those are just too constricting.
I'm with you on the slight skinny jean, I wear those all the time. Slim enough to enhance some curvature on the leg, while still holding it's shape as a jean =

^ oh not the denim leggings, those are awful.
I do love my skinny jeans, though. I couldn't imagine not wearing skinny jeans, they look great with everything.

But I'm not sure if this trend is timeless for men.

i second this...but to be honest i think my hatred of the denim legging lies in the fact that i look simply ATORICOUS in them...quite a repugnant look for me in fact

they suck on everyone, but i already had hate going for leggings as pants so the combination is hilariously bad to me.

I prefer straight leg or boot cut, since I have some booty and skinny jeans don't fair well for girls with some booty.

I'm a very thin guy so I usually only wear skinny jeans because any other kind just looks big and awkward on me. Since I'm skinny as it is they don't look THAT tight on me. I like all my jeans to have a tapered leg because it shows off your shoes better and it doesn't have that weird crease at your ankle. But I think an important rule is skinny jeans should only be worn by skinny people. And I don't mean to be rude but if you see someone a bit larger or curvier wearing skinny jeans it just makes them look ridiculous.

As for girls, I think skinny jeans look WAAAAAAY better than bootcut or any other style. Bootcut jeans should ONLY be worn with heels IMO.

I always wear skinnies. I couldn't bring myself to ever wear bootcut jeans again. And skinny jeans are so much better than leggings.

My favorite ones are by Current/Elliott. And I have some great pairs from a tacky store called Tally Weijl, their skinnies are cheap but amazing.
J Brands look weird on me, make my butt look square, unfortunaltely. And H&M sknnies are not skinny enough, they sag in the waist and the leg openening isn't tight enough for my taste.
