The initial surge in skinny jeans was something I refused to partake in. Lets be honest, jeans are a girls best friend when you find that perfect pair, but shopping for that perfect pair is like shopping for a nice apartment in New York, on a budget – IT COULD TAKE YEARS. They have to fit just right and I can never seem to find that pair of jeans –ironically I also failed at the apartment search when I lived there.
I’ve been an athlete my whole life and now I’m weight training 5-6 days a week with only a few unfortunate days of cardio involved. It is next to impossible to find a jean that fits my bigger quads and my thinner waist, so the skinny jean was not going to happen for me. Fast forward five years later and I’m on the bandwagon, with three pairs of skinny jeans that aren’t my favorite fit, but in the world of fashion you pick your battles.
Trend forecasting has revealed that wide leg gaucho pants are on the rise. Not in your local H&M yet, but just you wait because it is around the corner. STOKED. My life will be made easy and I can retire those skinny jeans until the next recycle of them in 20 years (and fit in them, hence the three days of cardio). I’m not talking about the jersey gauchos that cling and reveal way more than anyone other than your significant other should see. I’m talking the perfectly wide, slouchy trouser pant that slims and cuts right at the ankle. Paired with a pair of gladiator heels, fresh kicks or even ankle boots – BOOM, you’re set.
See ya never skinnies – hello wide leg!
