it's all in the legs

     the internet has been down in my apartment for five days now, and this is the first chance i've had to get at it. my roommates and I are going crazy with such spotty internet.

     flared jeans.. making a comeback? I certainly hope not. I didn't even bother to read the article on the website. I just don't get how they could seem appealing, comfortable probably, but if you're going with comfortable you might as well go all the way and wear sweat pants. these are not dressing to impress pants at all, and it doesn't help either if they have trendy rips on the thighs either. it seems that all I do is pick fashion trends that are up and coming and make them sound foolish, but trust me, they wont be big, and wont last long. heres why

     legs. one of the most under flaunted aspects of a women are her legs. it seems they underestimate how much a good pair of jeans can really catch some serious male and female attention. and its not just pants that show off your cute butt ladies, oh no, having jeans that show off the subtle slender curves of your thighs and calves has a powerful impact on your image. sure a woman can be slender, but if you've never ran a day in your life, and are as squishy as the pillsbury dough boy, your thighs and calves aren't going to be your strong point. so this is to all you athletic hotties out there, don't go for this new trend! don't give away one of your subtle secret weapons, you used it so you wouldn't lose it, now show those long sexy legs off, or just be comfy and cozy in a nice pair of sweats.


  1. While I agree with you about slim cut jeans being more aesthetically pleasing, I am glad that flared jeans are making a but of a comeback, simply because I have a pretty small waist, and i like to show it off, but pairing a tight shirt with tight jeans is a little daunting for any girl, even of my size. I'm also a waitress, and i prefer wearing flared jeans to work..

  2. first of all, I would like to thank you for your insight. I truly appreciate it.
    however, I never said tight jeans had to be paired with a tight shirt! in fact, one of my favorite looks on women are tight jeans and a loose top.
    I can see them being great for waitressing, but as soon as you try to take them out for the night because they are "in", all they are going to do is cover up your shoes

  3. i disagree with you on the 'making legs look better' aspect... i get a LOT of compliments on my legs, and i look ten times better in flares than in skinnies. this is the kind of look i go for:

    they actually make my legs look longer since you can't see exactly how high the heel is. it looks great with a simple, fitted top and my hair in a loose chignon. i like the higher waists too...

  4. I hadn't thought about it like that, but I still stand by my opinion. I know the look you're talking about, and I'm not saying it's impossible to pull off. this fashion trend is picking up at the university, and I'm just not fond of it

  5. I for one am glad that flares are coming back in. It will be nice to find a normal pair of jeans in the stores, I loathe skinny jeans with a passion. Though I did grow up in the late 90's early 2000's :P flares were a pretty big thing then. Skinnies are just a hard thing to pull off for a lot of people.

    To each their own I suppose!
