Wide-Leg Jeans Are Back

This is such bullshit. I JUST went out and bought a new pair of skinny jeans that are stretchy and comfy and fit like a snuggie on NBC comedy night, and now Stylelist.com is telling me that wide-leg jeans are about to come back:

“‘Wide legs, trousers, super flares, and bell bottoms are definitely the new fashion-forward trend, not only in the premium denim market but everywhere,’ Jerome Dahan, founder and designer of Citizens of Humanity, tells StyleList.”

Come on, man! It’s not that I don’t like wide-leg jeans — in fact, I love wide-leg jeans. That’s why it’s taken me so long to get on the skinny train. But here I am, chugging along, literally finding a good pair last week, only to have them ripped out from under me in favor of the new (old) trend, wide-legs.

You know what? Screw you, fashion. I’m going to go buy one pair of GAP jeans and wear them every day for the next ten years. At some point, they will become fashionable. And with a little luck, they’ll be fashionable twice.

      I actually bought some wide legs a few months ago. I got some stares and I guess they weren’t looking at my shoes seeing as they were covered. But they’re really slimming so I like them. It’s a plus theyre coming back I spose. I never got on the skinny jean train. I dont think they worked for me. My fashion sense basically comes down to “do I look better in this”. If I don’t, I don’t care if it’s the trendiest thing since Ugg boots if they’re Uggly.

      This is why i hate modern fashion. Trends no longer go through 10 yr cycles like they used to. Instead they rotate every 2 years and screw over my budget!

      Just wear jeans that make your ass look good. Skinny jeans have been in and out of favour every few months for the last five years. I really wouldn’t worry about it. Personally, I love me some wide legs.
