High Rise Skinny Jeans in Black
Jeans are in, jeans are out. Skinny jeans are in, skinny jeans are out. Boot-cut jeans are in, bootcut jeans are out. Low rise jeans are in … out and shake it all about, you do the hokey cokey and you turn around and that’s what it’s all about!
On a serious note though. I wasn’t allowed my first pair of jeans until I was ten years old. Imagine that. Fast forward twenty, ahem, or so years and you’ll barely see me out of them, obviously not my first pair. I’d be lucky if they fit over my ankle.
Jeans to me as a kid were blue denim. As a teen when I wasn’t wearing my mum’s 70’s bell-bottom pants, jeans were ripped at the knee or under a cheek, or both. They were dyed purple, patched up and drawn on. In my twenties jeans were bootcut or flared. In my thirties jeans became mostly black, mostly high-rise but always skinny. And that’s were I am now, and can see myself for the foreseeable future, no matter what’s hot or what’s not. For now you can keep your boyfriend cut, and your bootcut. They can be cropped and chopped but I still won’t care, black skinny jeans are here to stay for me (although I do love bell bottoms – we could negotiate on that)
