Skinny trousers have been omnipresent for at least a decade, but have been around for over a century. They are carried by everyone, from politicians to rock stars. What guarantees their success? Fashion designer John Galliano resumes his career after nearly two years … There are not many clothes that can be worn by … anybody. As thick as they are, they have a wide variety of people with completely different tastes, less in terms of jeans or skinny trousers. The hipsters wear it with the hem turned, the emo makes them accessible with straps and very low boots, while the sophomore (the new type of young aristocrat) slips them to the stripe and prefers the ones with a high waist. “Find skinny jeans” is a game you can test on any street in the world. As long as people are present, skinny pants are involved.
In Europe, skinny jeans have experienced a strong revival in both stores and sales, as well as in public preferences, when Topshop branded them on the British shelves, above all. Shepherdson is of the opinion that the association of trend with punk current “could explain why skinny jeans are so appealing to the British”. But for the rest of the world? When Alexander McQueen launched, in 1996, low-level trousers and trousers, the audience opened his eyes to pants and cuts other than those known. That moment is also associated with the skinny boom boom. Other than plain tights, skinny jeans were presented in a manner that helped them to spread anywhere and anywhere. There are enough theories, some of them even bold. “If you start looking, you can find skinny pants even in the 18th century at a Macaronis movement,” says Sarah Niblock, a professor at Brunel University, UK, specializing in visual culture. “It was the first British movement to use fashion for its subversive purpose. They used to wear molded clothes on the body. “Niblock thinks there may be a clear connection between Macaronis, cowboy, teddy boys (dandy inspired British subculture) to punkers.
Perhaps it’s no surprise for you to tell you that skinny jeans are no longer the title holder of “the most fashionable jeans model of the moment.”
Although, as far as current trends are concerned, they have been replaced by cut patterns a little relaxed, skinny jeans are still a go-to in the wardrobe of most women. The reason? They are flattering for any type of silhouette and, unless they are too tight (a contra-indicated thing because restricting natural body movements can cause back pain and other health problems), are comfortable and easy to wear ( probably because we got used to them for so long).
Yet, in the sea of jeans either wide, either cropped, or retro-looking (all being trending styles) that the world is currently wearing, how do you still wear a pair of skinny jeans to look at?
My basic rule – waits on low-waist models and opts for high waist. The low waistline has not been in trend for some time not only in jeans, but generally in any type of pants. In addition, the high waistline, besides being fashionable at the moment, is also flattering for the silhouette, for it successfully conceals small imperfections, so here’s another reason to give up those super low-waist models that recall the 2000s .
