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, just because stars wear a different cut of jeans People starts crying “Are skinny jeans over already”!? Come on, even celebrities change up their jeans style once in awhile. I like skinny jeans for tucking into boots only. Perfect for when it just snowed & you don’t want to ruin your shoes. In my opinion, skinny jeans look bad if they aren’t tucked into boots. I don’t think they look good at all with ballet flats.

No, I love skinny jeans! I think they’re so chic. Plus, I think the stars are just going for versatility. I don’t wear skinny jeans every day…

Since i’m not the skinniest girl on earth, i dont wear skinny jeans that often. Still, i dont really care if the stars are retiring theirs. I will still wear my skinny jeans cause, just as you said, they are the best cut to wear together with boots. It looks fantastic!

i don’t think it’s over quite yet. skinny jeans don’t go with *everything* and it’s okay to let them rest every once in awhile.

Gladly!! I never liked them, and I never could wear them. I think these celebs look much better in these wider styles.

I always thought the skinny jeans were more about marketing than style. I don’t know anyone who would wear them!

To be quite honest, I was never a fan of the skinny jeans. I think with fashion, you should just wear whatever looks good on you, and makes you feel good; whether it’s ‘in’ or ‘out’.
