Skinny jeans have trended for years on the fashion scene, and from the look of things, they are not going out of style anytime soon. This fashion item is tailored to have narrow legs, small leg opening and taper completely at the bottom of the leg. Tight fitting trousers were fashionable from 1805 until 1850, being descended from the loose work trousers worn as a political statement by Sans-Culottes during the French Revolution. These “pantaloons,” popularised by Regency era Englishmen like Beau Brummel, were worn high on the waist and tailored to accentuate the leg like the breeches previously fashionable among the upper class. Pantaloons were tied (or buttoned) around the ankle and commonly put into boots. Skinny jeans first spread to men’s fashion in 2008. This has continued into the 2010s, entering the mainstream fashion in 2011. Since then, they have remained popular and eventually became one of the decade’s defining fashion pieces for both men and women. They have become so popular that many have expanded their wardrobe to include tight fitting trousers coming with variety of colours. Women’s skinny jeans saw the high-waist trend coming back in style. Like men’s, women’s skinny jeans come in various colours, often in neutral colours like khaki and white.
