Jeans SkinnyThe slim fit of skinny jeans was on hiatus for most of the 1990s, as wide leg styles or less tapered styles become more popular. In the 2000s many people started wearing skinny jeans again, and incorporated some fairly new features from the 1990s in new skinny jean styles. These features include the use of nylon or spandex with denim, which makes the jeans stretch slightly, allowing you to fit into a fairly tight pair of them. Also, the lower waist style of women’s jeans that began to be popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s is now featured in a lot of skinny jean styles.
This style of jean doesn’t flatter everyone, and is really best worn by those who are thinner than average. The tapered leg can make even medium sized hips look fairly large, and larger hips may look very large with this style. Wearing pants that fit well is important to showcase your figure to its best advantage, and wider leg styles are often better suited to people with medium or large hips. Fortunately these styles remain popular and the skinny jean appears to come in and out of style, but isn’t worn by everyone even when it is fashionable.
