This skinny pant trend has now been around far to long and I am plain sick of it and think it’s time for a change.
I don’t know about you and what your attitude towards fashion is, but here’s mine. I believe in wearing what makes you look good and feel good about yourself. A wide variety of well fitting, stylish but comfortable clothes, always bought at a fraction of the price describes my closet.
watched my fair share of Stacey and Clinton. It didn’t take me long to start choosing function over fashion, especially as a mom of three who owns dogs and a cat. But just like spandex, mom jeans, and bodysuits, some trends are just plain wrong, and skinny jeans are one of those things.
When skinny jeans became trendy a few years ago I was definitely not on the bandwagon. Unlike flares, I find they are NOT a universally flattering style (sorry ladies but muffin tops and camel toes are never in style). I wasn’t worried though, because I figured, like all fashion trends it would pass.
Then 2012 came and they were just as popular as ever. So, due to super cheap deals at Old Navy and lack of other options, I succumbed to the trend. I got two pairs of skinny cords and two pairs of skinny jeans (all for $10 or less). I wore them for a while, but I was never happy.
I never feel comfortable in skinny pants. They are too revealing, difficult to move and flex in, and they only look good with certain shoes. The last thing you need when you feel bloated or unpretty is to have to cram yourself down the legs of your pants.
Fast forward a year and it is now the end of 2013 and here I am still wading through mounds of freakin skinny pants! I need a nice pair of dress pants for work and I would like a nice pair of cords for the winter cold, but good luck finding them, because they don’t seem to exist. Perhaps I am shopping at the wrong stores, or perhaps that I am on a budget, but either way it shouldn’t matter.
So for 2014 I am saying down with skinnies! There are so many styles out there: bootcut, flare, wideleg, straight leg, and more. It’s time for a new year, a new start, and new pants!
What do you think? Are you a fan of skinny jeans or are you ready to move on?
