In 2007, there is talk that the trouser leg for jeans is favoured over
the skinny jean look. Nordstrom and Banana Republic have designed
trouser-leg jeans for 2007. And trouser-leg jeans may be the new look!
Is it the end then for skinny jeans? Are they a high-street look rather
look and is that the problem! However , skinny jeans
have been around since the 60s. They are the original rock
But more than that, they hug the body in a way that leggings do. If
leggings are popular in 2007, as they seem to be, then why not skinny
jeans! Maybe they skinny jeans are not gone. They just need re-styling.
It is probably true that in 2007, they need to be
re-fashioned and re-designed as all fashion items do. Maybe it is not
the end for skinny jeans at all. They look like being always a part of
fashion as denim jeans, leather jackets and leggings are. Indeed they
are a fashion category within the broader fashion category of jeans wear
and maybe skinny jeans will never go out of fashion like
Skinny jeans are more high-street now than
. Skinny jeans accent the
legs of the
wear and they may be more suited towards 'skinny
legs. Indeed they are
aimed for long slender legs and when you add high heels, there you get
the look. But how to re-style the skinny jeans! Maybe there should be
more emphasis on shape. For example, Levi's has placed more space around
the hips so that their version of the skinny jean looks heavier and
trouser like but also more shaped. And because of this trouser-like
quality, it is not necessary to wear the high heels with Levis skinny
jeans. If the skinny jean is to have a new look, maybe it is necessary
to pull the high heels and skinny jeans apart from each other.
Look at the girls who wear them on the streets.
Some jeans hug the buttocks in obvious ways. There are the tight light
blue shine denim jeans which, because of the lightness of color, accent
long legs and the 'shape
from buttocks down. They
cling then to the thighs and the back leg but is there shape! Is the
shape created more by the slender frame of the wearer? And are they
fashion? Do they really create shape? Skinny jeans put too much emphasis
Skinny jeans create a body shape for you, but maybe
it's sometimes better to make your own shape. It may be because of this
that the trouser leg jean is more in fashion. In some way the trouser
leg creates more shape. If you look at Levi's skinny jeans, they taper
more because of the room at the hips and thighs and the tightness is in
the area from thigh to ankle. Levis give more shape around the hips and
waist and thus there is more tapering. But in this way, they are more
trouser-like in some way.
Skinny jeans may be out but this may be because of
the light blue color of some skinny jeans. Tapering black slender jeans
is still in. The tapering trouser effect is 'in'. So what look can you
create? A 'separate' look is always in fashion. With the
comes the separate look! You know a man's trousers comes
with shirt. A type of fitted masculine look never goes out of fashion!
Red close-fit blouse goes with a black close-fit trouser-leg jeans for
example. Or a flesh-colored blouse goes with a black tapering trouser
jeans. A corset effect or a close bodice-hugging top may match the
