Gen Z Vs Millennials: Are Skinny Jeans Over?!
Hold up! What?! Skinny jeans can’t be over. They can never, ever, ever go out of style. That’s like saying “the little black dress is over.” Some things, like skinny jeans, are just classics. Right?
We hate to burst your bubble, but Gen Z has declared that skinny jeans are dead. (They also hate side part hairstyles, but we can discuss that later). Skinny jeans had a good run, according to teens and people in their early 20s, but they’re just not cool anymore. So what’s cool now? Mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, flare jeans, slouch-fit jeans. Pretty much anything except millennials’ beloved skinnies. Painful, right?
Before we dig deeper into the denim wars, we just wanna say you can obviously wear any type of jeans you want. You don’t have to listen to Gen Z. In their defense, however, maybe skinny jeans can take a breather and let looser styles have a chance in the spotlight for a change!
Skinny jeans have been ruling the denim kingdom for YEARS. They came along around 2004 and pretty much kicked bootcut jeans to the curb. Since then, they’ve enjoyed a long reign. Until now, that is. However, they’re not going down without a fight. Our Classic High Waist Skinny Jeans are still top sellers, and they look good with everything. Just sayin’. Still, if you wanna branch out and stop squeezing into skinny styles, we got you. Check out some of our sexy and SUPER trendy denim looks for your next haul.
