Fun one, I hope.
I walk around Manhattan every day and see every type of fashion statement you can imagine.
As I woefully determine that I am wearing out-of-date jeans, I see that what seems to be the big style now is that we've gone back to tapered....not like 80s tapered with shirts tucked in to high-waisted faded jeans, but not full-on "skinny" necessarily...they all seem to taper down at the ankle and seem stretchy-tight on top. And people aren't tucking them in to boots, they're wearing them with regular shoes (sneakers, flats, grown-up lady shoes).
But of course, I see many people in them and they just don't fit them well...too tight up top, not suited for their body type, the tapered/skinny look is a challenge for people above a certain weight, size, or age.
Is it better to be wearing jeans that fit you well, or jeans that are the style that has clearly become the new norm?
