The skinny on skinny jeans…are they a thing of the past? Yes, I am looking at you millennials, have pronounced the skinny jean as DEAD and NOT COOL. But, here is a wonderful thing about fashion…YOU DO YOU, BOO! It is part of my job to try different trends, and let everyone know the skinny on them, so let’s talk jeans!
I don’t think that skinny jeans are going to go silently into the night. They are putting up a huge fight, and skinny jeans lovers all over the world are rebelling. I can’t wait for fall to roll around and watch all of the millennials trying to stuff their baggy jeans into boots. Good luck with that, Boo!
Skinny jeans don’t look great on everybody, so some people shout for joy that they aren’t the go-to jean of choice. I like how skinny jeans fit around my hips and thighs, but my favorite look is the slim, straight-leg jean.
Skinny jeans have now become a classic, and classics never truly go out of style. Instead, they are accepted in wide circles, but they no longer define you as on the cutting edge of fashion. I am alright with that!
This striped blue and white blazer looks like summer to me. The blazer reminded me of a seersucker blazer that I had when I was younger, and I wore it all of the time. This one is cotton and rayon, not seersucker, and I especially love the ruched sleeves. However, this one is almost completely sold out, and only XS is now available. I found a few that were very similar, so I’ll link those for you.
So, for all of you skinny jeans lovers, I decided to have a photoshoot styling them and let all of you be the judge. This is a pair of skinny jeans that I’ve owned for a while, and they are still one of my favorite pairs. These jeans are by Mavi, and this brand is very comfortable. They have a lot of give and take with their material, so you don’t feel confined. I wear my usual size 10 in this brand, and the fit is TTS.
If it is summer, then you will find me wearing espadrilles. There is just something about shoes that have roping that I love. These navy wedge shoes are from Vionic, and I’ve owned them for a while. I honestly would have preferred a pointy toe, but I fooled around and forgot to send them back in the return window. Since I am stuck with them, I might as well wear them. Lol!
I have wanted a bodysuit for a while, and I have ordered several in to try. All of them were sent back as soon as possible. I always order a large since I don’t want something sticking to me like glue. However, every one of them came in looking like they would fit my 7-year-old granddaughter.
Then, I ordered this white short-sleeved v-neck bodysuit, and I am thrilled with it. It fits fantastic, and the material is not see-through. I carry my weight in my belly region, so I don’t do much tucking with my shirts. But, if I want to tuck them in, I want them to tuck neatly into my pants.
I also wanted a black bodysuit, but the large was sold out in this style. Instead, I ordered a black scoopneck tank bodysuit, and it fits just as well. The only criticism that I have, the suits are a little long. I am long-waisted, but they are a tad long on me too.
