It’s about that time again – with every new year comes new trends – and this one is no exception.

A couple years ago, skinny jeans were on top of every person’s fashion wish list, including myself. But slowly, the skinny jean is disappearing.

I like to think it’s because of the comfort over discomfort lifestyle we have now.


Thanks to sweatpants, trousers, culottes, flared jeans, and heck, no jeans, even the most stylish fashion bloggers like Chriselle Lim of The Chriselle Factor and Chiara FerragniΒ of The Blonde Salad to your favorite models like Bella and Gigi are making the switch.

Fellow fashion and lifestyle blogger, Breena Bradford of More Better Blues is also in love with the trend, saying:

Wowzers! Oh how I love wide legged trousers. Now, I still love a skinny jean fit, but a wide leg forces me to throw on a platform shoe and dress up a little.

I love my high waisted wide legged denim pants! A bff of mine purchased these pants for me a few years ago in Philly for $10 at Daffy’s. They are so comfy and stylish! My favorite part is how tall and lean they make me look (in my opinion) lol.

Ebony Stefanelli of Mixed Girl Makeup shared a flatlay consisting of her favorite Boot Jeans with some Pewter flats from Torrid.


I, too, also tried out the trend for myself even though I’ve been wearing those types of pants since I was in kindergarten it’s pretty cool how trends are constantly recycled, huh? and you can learn how I made these DIY Aimee Song-inspired jeans on The Denim Blog which you can learn about here.

  1. Thats interesting, I pretty much thought skinny jeans would be around forever but I love Boyfriend jeans especially highwaisted because I have no hips. Love the look posted and the information

    1. For a while, I thought skinny jeans might last forever, too! But I’m glad that they’re not, though; I was getting a little bored with wearing them.

      I love a good high-waisted jean, too! I’m currently a little obsessed with them, haha. Thank you so much for your feedback! x

  2. I’m pleased to see the skinny jean trend go. Is it possible that leggings as pants (meaning, worn with short shirts so we see every crack and bulge) will be next? I’m all for a comfy pair of leggings with a big top over it, but I’m ready to be done seeing waaayyyy more of strangers than I need to. πŸ™‚

    1. Same here. I got tired of seeing them around. In my opinion, I think that trend will eventually fade away when something else becomes popular. πŸ™‚

  3. I’ve never been a fan of boyfriend jeans. I feel like they never fit my thighs and my waist since I have muscular legs :(. I looovvee the look of them on other people though! Super cute.

    1. Same here! It’s definitely amazing how fashion is gearing towards comfort nowadays. πŸ™‚ But yes, the blogger who collaborated with me, Breena, got her jeans for $10!

  4. When skinny jeans were first popular, I wasn’t so sure. Then I loved them probably because I love wearing boots with them. It’ll be a sad goodbye.

    1. Definitely! I’m pretty happy that it does this, though; it’s nice to see some things become popular all over again. x

  5. I love how you paired these jeans! I like skinny jeans but I definitely love a good pair of boot cuts. I love that camoflauge jacket too!

    1. Thanks, girl! I wasn’t sure at first either (the last time I wore them was wayyyy back then before they became nonexistent for a while, lol), but it never hurts to try. πŸ™‚

  6. I’m very excited about wide leg pants, as they are some of my favorite styles. I look forward to wearing mine with crop tops and minimal jewelry πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you! Also, I’m glad you’re sticking with what you already love. While this is a trend report, I always try to encourage people to stay true to their own style. x
