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.

Thank goodness, I hate skinny jeans, even on skinny people. It looks like they have a constant wedgie.

Thank goodness, the skinny jean was not one of my fave fashions choices. You literally have to be as tiny as Nicole to even look halfway decent in them and they still didn’t look good. I think the slightly flared leg is much more flattering on women to begin with. Plus, I am tall and the jean ending at my ankles looks stupid to be hoinest- not a good choice in jeans. Glad to see it is already loosing steam.

I think that the people who don’t like skinny jeans are the people who don’t look good in skinny jeans, because skinny jeans are soooo cute and you can pair them with anything! so, i could wear this trend for at least a few more months.

I have never worn a pair of skinny jeans, nor will I EVER wear a pair of skinny jeans. I hope this “trend” is over for good!

Skinny jeans didn’t even look good on skinny people. What a terrible fad. Didn’t we learn anything from the past; if you wear something skinny on the bottom, you look like an ice cream cone.

I think the only way skinny jeans look good, is tucked into boots. Other than that they are really ugly. I am so happy that the flare legged jeans are on the in again!!!

Why are skinny jeans in boots popular? I can’t wait for the retrospective look on that trend…

It’s about time that we move on from the skinny jeans!

Thank goodness – that is one trend I will be happy to see go! I have thighs, so I could never wear the look. No need to be jealous anymore!
