Fashion is always something every person has their own opinion about. She likes this, he hates that or a whole group of people like one particular item and it becomes a trend. No matter what peoples’ opinions are, most trends seem to circulate back into style every once in a while. Skinny jeans, sagging, and pencil skirts are fashion trends we can all say we run into at some time or another whether wearing them or seeing them on others. Skinny jeans have been around since the 1950’s, most popular among country music stars and in the infant days of rock and roll. Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe, in the 50’s, and bands including, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in the 60’s, all adopted this look. More recently in the 1980’s Michael Jackson, Snoop Dogg and Mötley Crüe wore this style. Skinny jeans are often accompanied with high-top sneakers, but I think this style of jean is so versatile. They look good with pumps, boots, flats, sneakers and flip-flops. Plus, not only can you pair tons of different shoes with them, but different fabrics too. Denim jean is the most common fabric but denim colors, animal print and abstract patterns are also common among the “trend setters”. Even though skinny jeans have been around for over 60 years they still have a modernistic vibe to them. About the only thing that changes with them is the waist level. Now days, a lower waist is more prevalent but in Elvis’ day, he preferred a higher-waisted jean. Skinny jeans scream: I keep up with fashion trends; embrace and respect fashion evolutions as well as the history that made fashion!
