As a gal who used to hate skinny jeans, I ended up embracing the look a year or two ago because the once-trend didn't seem like it was in any rush to go anywhere. But since I don't have skinny-mini gams, my way to make the look work for me is to get skinny-straight jeans and to wear them rolled - so they fit the largest part of my legs thighs and I get to show off the skinniest part ankles. These things called "jeggings" - no bueno for me.
As skinnies continue in popularity though, it can get a wee bit frustrating when you're in the market for a different type of jean leg. Especially since my fave fit of jean - the J.Crew hipslung with the gently flared leg - has long since been discontinued (plus petite length jeans are gone - why JC?) So I tend to scour Ebay and hoard them if I can find them in my size.
Every once in a while though, I will take a pair of hoarded hipslung jeans out for a spin - then remember why I love them and have to hide them away again (my precious ...)
