Did I Mention?

I don't own skinny jeans.

Only a pair of straight edged ones that can pass as skinnies with boots.

Is this sad?

My friends all say it's time I buy a pair, but I always look weird in them.

Should I buy a pair?

How do you rock your skinnies?

if you don't think you look good in them, then i wouldn't buy them. sometimes, the hip to ankle ratio can look horrifying. i own two pairs but i rarely wear them these days. supposedly the trend right now is the wide legged ones.

buy them only if they flatter you, because if they dont you will look ridiculous. if i didnt live in Greece i wouldnt wear them as much, i would wear wide-legged..but since skinnies are now fashionable (!!)where I live, I wear them currently with a plaid shirt, rolled up sleeves, old sneakers and a hat and lots and lots of bangles and jewellery.

i agree completely with the other two commenters - only get them if you look good in them!

If you feel like it's looking weird on you, you shouldn't buy it!

Do what you want and where what you like - the best piece of style advice I've ever gotten.

I own a sing;e pair of skinny jeans. Only of course, to wear with boots. Otherwise, i wear my straight leg jeans. In a super dark wash of course.
happy holidays!!

if u find a pair that you look AhMazing in, then go for it.

I think you have to stick to what you like and to what you look best in. Most people think you have to follow every single existing trend, but I do not agree. You can try them, and if they suit you and are easy to include in your own style, then keep on using it.

i wear skinny jeans almost every day, but no one should feel like they have to wear them since they're a trend.

Like everyone else said ya gotta fell great in them to rock it! Right now (since it's uber cold) I wear my skinnies with boots, a sweater and a puffy vest , a low sling belt, or scarf and BIG earrings. Or maybe a cute pea coat and flats.

I don't own skinny jeans either! I don't think I look good them at all - so I steer clear from them. One day if I find a pair that looks good, I'll buy it.

I am on that fine line.I think I am too short for them and my legs are too thin and I cant wear socks with ballet flats and skinnies
Merry Christmas

Definitely don't be afraid. I just cajoled my friend who was iffy about skinnies into buying a pair and she looks adorable! I always keep in mind these hipsters with rather quite voloptuous figures I saw in Nashville wearing skinnies, and I feel like, if they can pull them off, I definitely can.

I don't see skinny jeans as a trend. I always wanted them before and they just weren't available to me. I'm just not a wide-leg sort of gal.....

coco said...

they have hung around for a while now so they might be an investment
I love mine but only becuse I have chicken legs so wide legs look so weired on me
I don't think you should wear them just by thinking you have to
Loose boyfriend jeans look pretty cool too, so are straight legged ones

for me the skinnies that work are seven for all mankind stretch ones, as i have a curvy figure they fit best. but make sure you try them on and feel good in them .. with jeans if you dont feel comfortable you wont wear them.
