FASHION SUITE 700: SKINNY LEG JEANS...PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
The most popular style of jeans today is the skinny leg. Tight jeans were popular back in the 80’s and 90’s with the high waists and tapered leg for women jeans. Tight jeans were popular also during the 80’s for women and even men. There were no boundaries when it came to colors on jeans. The acid wash jeans and bright colors were a huge success in the 80’s. Now the skinny leg jeans are most popular in dark denim and are made with stretch material as they were not back in the 80’s. I believe that the hip hop culture has also adopted the look for the younger generation of wearing skinny jeans which has caused a new height in popularity.
THE FUTURE...The look of fashion for the future with jeans can go in any direction. Jeans have such a wide variety of styles, colors, and fit that it seems that styles of jeans revolve around from the past. The hottest new style for the future will still be a sexy fitting jean for women and back to relaxed, baggy, jeans for men. I am sure that skinny jeans will stick around for many years to come and designers will experiment with different textiles and cuts to continue to be versatile.
