No skinny jeans aren’t on the way out

A few people have recently been tolling the bell for the skinny jeans trends, on the way out they tell us. Joining them today is A Socialite’s Life who says “about time”. Their proof?

But two A-list celebrities (Penelope Cruz, Katie Holmes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba are pictured) don’t make a trend, especially when they all look so bloody terrible in them.

But what’s really going on? People are simply experimenting with their denim. It’s not the first time in recent memory either. Hypermodel Kate Moss tried high-waisted denim last year and the same people rushed to tell us skinny jeans were dead, and we saw where that went. Few people wore them, and each looked as bad as the other. Moss herself has gone back to skinny jeans, Siwy in particular.

So don’t pack away your skinny jeans. They’re still very much on the legs of the best fashionisers.

Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views.
