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.

I think the only people who are hating on skinny jeans are those who didn’t look good in them to begin with. I love my skinny jeans. I don’t wear them all the time…and they arent’ only for those a size 0….i’m a size 1-3,, I loved them. VIVA LA SKINNY JEAN!!!!

i personally am glad that this trend is over because they really don’t look good on most people, and its about time they are done with!

Why don’t people wear what they like. Stars do not make my wardrobe. I have style and taste. If I like something and it looks good on me I wear it!!!

I’m a very petite person (00) and have always been overwhelmed by big flaring jeans like True Religion Joey or Seven’s bootcut jeans. I was always the girl wearing the skinny or striahgt leg jeans. When I saw they were in, I was happy, but I’m going to keep wearing ’em even when they’re out. I love my Joe’s cigarette leg and True Religion Stellas!!

Thank goodness! I haven’t liked skinny jeans from the beginning; they take away what little shape girls like Nicole Ritchie have! Flares are much more flattering, and ANYONE can wear them. I just think it’s about time.

Thank god, I didn’t buy into it; it was so last summer before it was even hot.

I love Nicole weight gain. Look at her arms. They are meatier. LOVE IT!

And the skinny jean fad has been long over.

Long live the skinny jean! I look smokin’ in them and I’m a size 2-4 not “anorexic”. We need something besides the now-boring flare/bootcut trend (and yes I still wear bootcuts with most of my outfits, just as the celebs are allowed to do). Let’s keep it fresh please…
