What is the difference between Slim & Skinny?
In regard to pants, the words "skinny" and "skinnies" is the same.
And the words "slim" & "slimming" are the same. However, skinny
and slim are differnt terms.
Skinny as in "skinny jeans" are tight
fitting pants. The fabric virtually hugs the legs, hips, butt,
etc. You can think of them sort of like leggings in the fact that
they are tight to the body.
Slim as in "slim jeans", are close
fitting pants. They are cut with less fabric around the leg area
than typical pants but they are not actually tight like a legging.
See examples of
skinny & slim jeans.
Note: we use
jeans as examples above, but these two versions of pant legs come in
pants as well.
