Are Skinny Jeans Still a Thing? Here's The Denim Lowdown!

If you are out of the loop, I am sorry to be the one to break this news to you but boot cut jeans are back and it's not just them basically any jeans that are anti-skinny are all the rage right now. If you are a skinny jean lover, I am sorry in advance but maybe this is a time for you to consider another style. I'm not saying to scrap all your skinny's but maybe re-evaluate which outfits are better suited with a skinny instead of them being your one and only's. My current ultimate favourite is straight leg jeans, they can be confused with the mom jeans. The difference is mom jeans tend to be baggier, straight leg jeans are tighter in the bum and cut straight down your legs.

The 90's Jeans & It's Best Friend The 00's Boot Cut

I think straight leg high-waisted jeans is a perfect trend for recovering skinny jean lovers. Although they aren't considered skinny's, you can find some that feel like they are but straighter in the leg, making it way more comfortable in my opinion!

A lot of 90's kids that I've spoken to have a hard time accepting this trend resurfacing, but high-waisted pants have been around the fashion stratosphere for a few years now and I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon. I finally started to relate to the rejection of jean trends when boot cut jeans resurfaced this year. I hate boot cut jeans! It reminds me of my awkward phase in the early 2000s that I do not wish to relive. So it made me think, are we just rejecting these trends because we didn't like who we were back then and we don't want to relive these times?

That being said boot cut jeans of 2020 are high-waisted and much cuter, unlike the 00's low waist that I want to forget forever. So I'm going to be challenging myself to find a pair of boot cut jeans that I can live with, so all the haters can see what overcoming a trend-phobia looks like. Stay tuned for the adventure on our Instagram page!

The Wide Leg Jeans!

The wide-leg jeans of the season have arrived in my wardrobe and I'm loving it! Why did I ever restrict my poor legs into tight skinny's? I don't know why but I can tell you that I've been wearing my skinny's less and less since getting these. I first saw a pair of wide-leg jeans on one of my favourite influencer's Instagram and I just had to have them. After getting them I realized I couldn't style these with just anything, they are a little tricky. I've found a sure-shot way of making sure it looks good is to tuck in every shirt, and the shirts have to be fitted. If you style these bad boys with a flowy top you risk looking like you time travelled back from the '70s but if that's the look you're going for, then rock it!

An Easy Way to Tell the Difference!

I know it can get a little confusing, so here's an easy guide to refer to when trying to tell the difference between jean cuts.

In short, skinny jeans may not be the jean trend of the moment but trends come and go. So hold on to your favourite skinny's and if you feel more comfortable in them, then rock them!
