To skinny or not to skinny — that is the question.
The greatest debate in fashion right now is whether or not skinny jeans are dead. Recently, Gen Zers on TikTok have been trolling millennials hard about their "uncool" tight denim preference (and their side parts), sending women of certain age into a serious style panic.
The likes of Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber have all been staying away from skinnies in favor of baggy jeans, cropped flares or classic straight legs. And it's not just the 20-somethings. Sarah Jessica Parker has also ditched the second-skin denim recently for roomier blues.
Personally, we are firm believers in wearing what makes you feel and look your best, and if you love rockin' the skinnies, go for it. But we have to admit, the younger generation does has a point, it never hurts to freshen up your wardrobe.
