Skinny Jeans. I DID NOT like this trend when I first laid eyes on it. Didn't like it AT ALL. But fashion is so funny and so fickle that sometimes if you stare at something long enough, you'll convince yourself that it's cute, and that you HAVE to HAVE said 'something', and then before you know it, you are completely STALKING a pair... but I digress...
I actually kind of like them now. Have not yet tried on a pair, so my personal verdict is incomplete until I do so. But I also think they are logical. What better pair of jeans to tuck into skinny boots than skinny jeans? Boot cut wouldn't work, as they are cut to wear OVER your boots. I think what turned me off at first sighting of the skinny jean trend was the fact that it is supposedly a narrower fit from waist to hip to thigh all the way down to your ankles, and the only people I saw wearing them were celebrities, and they were wearing them with hi-heeled pumps and sandals. I just couldn't see it. I hadn't seen any "real world" example of anyone wearing a pair, and until recently, I just could not wrap my mind around the look.
But now, after letting it marinate in my mind, when I see it dressed up with a heel, sleek and sophisticated, (like in the photo to the right, Rebecca Romijn does the look justice) I allow myself to think that I might look hot in a pair, so I don't close the door on it completely.
But I want to know what YOU think. Do you like it? Hate it? Don't care? Would YOU wear it? I wanna know YOUR style verdict.
