Are you saying goodbye to skinny jeans? I have read so many opinions in a variety of online fashion newsletters that shall remain nameless that I began to wonder if it was really true that the skinny jean is out. Fashion experts opinions have ranged from the health risk that skinny jeans cause to the fact that the silhouette of the skinny jean is so passé. I have such a strong opinion about skinny jeans that I simply had to write about it. I am going to defend the skinny jean because it is my favorite type of jean. Skinny jeans are not the perfect match for one and all but they are for me. Besides, there are so many signs that they are alive and thriving. Women have been seen all over the world wearing them. Take a look at the models below wearing skinny jeans. See. I told you they aren't passé.

My reasons range from how great they look with everything from heels to flats to the most important one of all: My figure is well-suited to the skinny jean silhouette. I love the fact that I can roll them up at the ankle if they are too long or if I want to show off a great pair of heels. I love how they taper at the ankle and I love that they have natural sex appeal.
While many may have said bon voyage to the skinny jean I will remain an advocate of them. I feel strongly that regardless of what jeans style may be in or out it reflects well on you to pick the best silhouette that suits your figure and personal preferences.
The health risks that they have, in my opinion, are rooted in wearing skinny jeans that are too tight for one’s figure. I love a great pair of skinny jeans but won’t end up as an unhealthy statistic because of them. That is the reason I bend and stride and stroll and sit down and gaze at myself in a full-length mirror before I commit to a pair. If they seem too tight when you are in the fitting room or when you order them online and try them on at home back away from them quickly. That just means they are not fit for you. Like the ladies below, find the right fit, and you may just fall in love with skinny jeans.
Not all skinny jeans are made alike. Make sure there is sufficient stretch material in them to make them feel comfortable on you. You can find a skinny jeans that fits you like a second skin but leaves room to breathe. This is one reason why I was quite surprised to start reading such vehement reasons about the reason the skinny jean is yesterday’s news. Those who were once such strong proponents of my favorite type of jeans suddenly quickly shunned them.
I can certainly understand why flare-leg jeans are so popular now. 70s fashion is just in right now and in a big way. Besides, flare-leg jeans look great on those of a certain height and weight. I won’t get into the details because you have read it so many times before I am sure.
Skinny jeans have a history of glamour and I like it! They were worn by many of the 1950s film stars I love so much. If you read my blog you probably know who they are; however, they were and still are worn by the opposite gender, as well. Musicians and film stars alike have been charmed by the fit of skinny jeans.

Let me just conclude by stating that skinny jeans fit me like a pair of worn leather gloves or like my oldest black leather jacket. I have found the denim style that works for me and I am sticking with them.
