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.

Oh good! The skinny jeans are on their way out! I love flared jeans because usually everyone can wear them, skinny jeans do not suit everyones body type. Thank goodness for flared jeans!!! Love em!

Skinny jeans are meant for those who are weight-challenged and for those who wear a size 0.

seriously, skinny jeans look awful because they expose your ankles and you look so bony in them. Thank god it’s over.

I used to think the skinny jeans were ugly till I bought a pair… and I love them.. they are not to be worn every day though.. only with an outfit that looks good with them.. I will still wear mine and look good in them!

I LOVE skinny jeans/pants and I’m not anorexic. If you don’t like them don’t wear them.

I am a size 2 and never purchased a pair. I think they look awful on everyone, including skinny people.

sarah on

i still like skinny jeans and on some people they r flattering
try wearing them with heels and your legs look a mile long

who cares on

thank god. I HATE skinny jeans. I love boot cut, flared, and anything but skinny. They make me and everyone I know look fat. not skinny. and they hurt. and if proper skinny jeans are too bug they just go on like a sock which hurts. if regular jeans are too bug, they just fit over shoes nicely.
