Be gone bad jeans!

Why oh why won't the skinny jean go away? I am seeing it all over the fall fashion magazines and it is making me crazy. I think only 10% of the women out there can really pull off the look. So, who is the fashion industry trying to fool? And, is anyone else out there completely tired of wearing jean capris? I definitely am sick of mine and am ready to start wearing my long, dark wash denim . Bring on fall!

Sorry, this was more of a rant than a post :)

Ummmm, would I be totally tres UN-chic if I told you that I started wearing my long dark-wash jeans last week? I couldn't help it! The weather was in the 70's and I was craving them!!!!!

Ok, I'm not built for skinny jeans at all, but what did I go and do - buy a bloody pair! Have they been worn AT ALL? Hell no. My fat ass can't work those babies!

Good old bootcuts for me!

Thank you for posting this rant. I see them all over NYC on all body shapes and sizes, so I just caved and bought a pair, although the thought of wearing them horrifies me. I hope it's a passing trend that dies just as fast as Ugg boots and ponchos.

Okay, I just got this email (our city has an ultra cool shopping email that comes out every Friday called Portland Pics) and in the email, they listed this place that makes, GASP!, skinny jeans that actually look GOOD on regular women! They even say these jeans make regular women look BETTER! And then I remembered this post of yours and thought I'd share. The website is:

Oh, just join me in ignoring all of this trendiness stuff and wear what looks good on you! You can find loads of stuff in the stores for real women. It's a trend and it'll be gone soon enough!

Fashion confession - I never stopped wearing long, dark flares. They fit my curvy shape in the best possible way. Skinny jeans made my butt look terrible. =(
buck the trend! Love your site!

I briefly considered skinny jeans because I like the idea of wearing dresses over them, but I've abandoned the idea of causing muscle atrophy. Straight legged jeans are much more versatile.

I've always been in favor of wide-legged pants and jeans, but unfortunately it's supposed to be a big trend this Fall. Hope trendiness doesn't ruin a good thing.

You guys are flippen crazy!skinny jeans are my must have fashion item for fall/winter.pair them with cute flats or off the wall vans and a cute sweater.for summer sandals and floaty frocks.so for all of you out there that despise them think twice.
