  • Skinny jeans are in fashion right now. Why? I have no idea. They have been telling us since the late 80's how incredibly unflattering they are, but here they are again. Where what makes you happy and what you are comfortable in. Screw everyone else, because they aren't the ones that have to squeeze into them every day.

  • I luv flared jeans!! I will alwayswear them. Skin jeans are for people that are SKIN. They look terrible on most people! My daughter did get some and they look cute on her (shes 10) but they're not to tight. Another girl was trying some on with her mom there also and her mom said ok, i was shocked because they looked HORRIBLE because the early teen had muffin top spilling over. I think moms need to tell their girls when they don't look good in something!!

    Just my opinion =)

  • kelli, have you ever seen the kids whos mother say no, it doesn't look good then the kid bursts into tears because thats all they want because its "in" at the moment? Not worth the fight/tears to me.

  • I think flared jeans are still "in", but I haven't seen bell bottoms in a long long time ...

    Skinny jeans are in, but there is NOOOOO way I would ever wear them. They would look awful on my frame! I wear jeans with a flare at the bottom.

  • Girls, skinny jeans aren't really so bad! I bought a pair this year and I love them. I wear a longer top over them, but the legs and butt make me look good. Boyfriend jeans are also in. New York & Company have some terrific jeans in all shapes, sizes, and washes. They're all on sale right now too!

  • Flared jeans are always nice if you have wide hips.

  • honestly, you should just wear what you like and what flatters your body the best..if your short flare jeans may not be the best option for you , seeing how they will make your legs appear even shorter and the overall appearance will be short and stumpy.

  • Skinny jeans are not my style. Nobody needs to see my chunky muscular legs in skinny jeans, matter of fact, I don't think my hips, ass, and calves would fit in skinny jeans.

    I've always worn flared jeans and if I find a pair of boot cut on clearance or what not, I cut a slit in the bottom so it fits over my shoes.

    IMO, skinny jeans only look good on people with skinny legs, which I don't have.
