While Alex wears them because they look good, Jenny Alvarez enjoys them for another reason. Jenny stated, “I like skinny jeans because they are comfortable.”
Another reason they are so popular is that skinny jeans can be worn with almost any outfit. Many wear them with boots and a sweater, while others enjoy wearing them with converse and a sweatshirt. Skinny jeans can also be used to tie a whole outfit together. There are many other reasons as well; for example, senior Tenille Duessler says , “It depends on my mood...”
Skinny jeans come in all different colors and styles. The most common type are just regular blue denim skinny jeans. However, they range from all different colors to even having something printed on them, like a floral print.
Skinny jeans can be worn for many different events, as well. Many students at NHHS wear skinny jeans to school. Putting other clothes with skinny jeans could make an outfit for a party, an outdoor event, or, depending on what other clothes were worn with them, a formal event. Skinny jeans are convenient to have because they can be worn all year-round, can tie an outfit together, and can be styled in different ways. Lately, the fashion trend with skinny jeans is to roll the ends up and make them long capris.
Skinny jeans have been around for a long time, but they seem to be shining in 2015. Skinny jeans have been traced from the early 19th century and are making their appearance known today.
