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.

This is why I got an inexpensive pair, I know I will be shaking my head next year. But I think they are cute with heels. My style is my own, what these women wear does not affect me. Yes, they only look good on thin women, but not all thin women are anorexic, like so many of you seem to think.

I still love skinny jeans, and high boots still look great over them(leggings aswell :-)).

Supersweet! Those things are hideous.

Oh my goodness… Thank the lord. I would almost put those ugly things up as the worst thing that ever happened to fashion. I dont care how pretty your face is, if you come out in those things you run the risk of people never even getting to your face. They take one look at your jeans and they’ve already made up there mind. Yuck! Im happy they are going away~!!!!! YAY!!!!

I haven’t and never will purchase a pair of the skinny jeans. I don’t like the tight-around-the-ankles look. I refuse to live in the 1980’s again!!! I mean come on, leg warmers! Please, designers, take back your skinny jeans and give us some that are for real women!

Skinny jeans are so not over. I think Nicole is allowed to wear flare jeans every now and then, and still be stylish.

I will still wear my skinnys for a while before they become “so last year” and look outdated. They are the best jeans for my body type, and I was ecstatic when they became the latest thing.

the only people who can actually wear skinny jeans are the ones whose thighs don’t touch… aaaaaaand because i am not one of those girls, thank goodness they’re finally going away!
