I believe that any woman can look nice in jeans provided that she chooses the right cut - and the right size. Skinny jeans can look good if the figure allows. Every trend - in jeans as in other articles of clothing - should be given thought to as to how they represent you: whether as someone conscious of one’s body and its assets and limitations or just as someone who would wear just about anything to keep up . . . . I have seen women wear items that one would not expect them to be able to wear, but done tastefully. This applies to many different areas. As an example, When I was in high schhol, I had read that dark skinned people should not wear a certain color - I think it may have been pink but I'm old now and can’t recall that it was pink or maybe yellow. I remember that an older lady who lived on my block was on her porch about to open her door when I - on my way home - spotted her wearing a very beautiful two piece business suit of just the color I had recently learned would be better not worn by people of her hue. I often wonder if she misinterpreted my intent as she turned from unlocking the door and noted the quizzical expression on my face. She would have had no way of knowing that I was thinking of how beautiful she looked in s bright shade of whatever color I had read about and how she certainly dispelled any stereotypical statements in that regard. So I learned to not believe in stereotypes and to believe that they predominantly promote ignorance and bigotry. Again to skinny jeans, they as well as all other articles of clothing should be worn with care. Why wear a halter top for instance, when your extra poundage presents a whole ‘nother picture than the One presumably you were aiming at. Likewise, if your stretch pants reveals your abundance of cellulite dimples - then why not look more appealing in a pant of a fabric more complementary to your body type. Skinny jeans are great, it’s just sad that not all bodies can afford them and that some who can’t cannot distinguish themselves from those who can.
