Skinny jeans have been around forever, or at least that's how it feels. Not that we mind – skinnies came to the fashion rescue of women everywhere who want to emphasis their legs but don't enjoy wearing dresses every day or who want to do weekend-casual without appearing in public in tracksuit bottoms. And in fashion years, they have pretty much been around forever – or at least since Beatniks bad boys adopted skinny pants in the ’50s. But it was only when the mods and rockers of the ’60s adopted stovepipes as their counterculture uniform that skinnies were adopted by women too. They remained popular until well into the ’70s and came back with a bang in the ’80s, thanks to the punk movement. At the same time, at the other end of the societal spectrum, the gym craze swept the world and introduced everyone to leggings. Unwittingly, The Sex Pistols and Jane Fonda, through her workout videos, entrenched skinnies in everyone's fashion consciousness. Fast forward to today and the latest crop of skinny jeans that is continuing the trend with ever-ready, ever-fashionable styles. Choose from low-rise to high-waisted versions in pale blue, mid blue or deep indigo, with rips, without rips, with rolled-up cuffs, without rolled-up cuffs… Or go for a ’90s-inspired bright green or pink pair. Wear your skinny jeans with continental flair by teaming it with Breton stripes and canvas sneakers or go full-on rebel with a moto jacket and boots. Or simply slip into your favourite sneakers and oversized T-shirt and head out for a coffee. One of the many reasons women’s skinnies remain so popular is precisely because they are so can adapted to any occasion, mood and style statement. Skinnies have long shaken off their teenage rebellion roots and have grown into a trusted wardrobe staple for women of all ages. And we couldn't be happier.
