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’m a thin girl with a muscular body type, especially my legs, so skinny jeans never looked good when I tried them on (so I never owned any). Most people I know wear what they like anyways, so the trend being “over” won’t affect me or anyone else I know.

Kaye is right! Skinny jeans are classy and flare jeans are TRASHY!

I´ve worn skinny jeans for years and they are the shape of jeans that looks best on me. But I do have straight, bootcut etc too. But the skinny ones I always go back to. Nicole and Paris choice of clothing doesn´t mean anything to me. I know what I like and look good in and my source of inspiration comes from my mom, Sofia Coppola, Audrey Hepburn. And I guess you always look best in what you feel comfortable in.

I am very happy to see them gone. I never personally wore them as I’m not a size 0 (sorry, 6 instead and would probably look like a 20 if I wore skinny jeans). I never liked them before they came back and am grateful to see they didn’t last long. They do not look good at all on most women and flare jeans are for sure a better way to go looks wise.

Ick. I hope the skinny jeans are over. Not cute.

Jessica on

I hope so. I hate them!! However, I think that there are a few that are cute! Like Sienna Miller looks awesome in them!,com_browse/task,product/celebrity_id,353/product_id,2235/

Hate, hate, hate the skinny jeans. Glad they are on their way out.

I agree they are best tucked into boots. Otherwise, so not sexy!

All I have to say is THANK GOD!! Skinny jeans look good on size zero models and that’s about it! I swore I’d never buy skinny jeans, I’m glad they’re going out of style!

I am super happy to see this trend disappear. I agree they work well with boots, but most people I see with them on look horribly unbalanced. If you are super skinny with no hips they look good – too bad some curvier women have taken to this trend. Good riddance!
