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 was realllllly into skinny jeans like 2 or 3 years ago. i had like 10 pairs. now they’ve gone completely mainstream and they’re not fun anymore. it sucks. i ditched skinny jeans the minute they started selling them at american eagle. eww.

I love skinny jeans!! I don’t give a damn about paris hilton and her BS friends. is there something wrong with being a size zero just cuz u aren’t doesn’t mean you should hate on the sexy healthy people

skinny jeans are only good tucked into boots although i prefer flare jeans or boot cut any day, and i am glad this one is over. it does make shoes look clownish only looks good with high boots.

We all like a change every now and then. I’m not a big fan of the skinny jeans, but if you can pull it off then go for it!

Yayyyyy, skinny jeans are so unflattering to 99% of the population and by the way, unless you are 5 ft tall…size 2-4 is anorexic! ;)

HALLELUJIAH!!!! Good-bye and good riddance!! Skinny jeans look good on maybe 1 out of every 15 people–and yet about 10 of those same 15 people insist on wearing them. They look bad, and they’re so past tense.
