Skinny Jeans: Gotta Have it? Make it Stop?
Going to a business meeting? Wear a jacket with your skinny jeans.
Going to a ball game? Your Giant's cap will look stunning with those skinny jeans.
Going to a funeral? They make black skinny jeans.
If you watch TV, read magazines, or shop at the mall you would think that everybody from pregnant women to your boyfriend wears skinny jeans. As a Professor I get to go "back to school" shopping too. All I want this year are a couple of pairs of slacks. BUT if you go to Macy's, Target, KMart, Ross, T.J. Max, Old Navy, Sears, or Nordstrom's you would think that everybody wears blue denim skinny jeans.
Here's some images you'll never scrub from your brain: Grandma in skinny jeans! How about your mom in skinny jeans? Skinny jeans with a muffin top. Skinny jeans where the crotch is so low you get a moon shot. And what's up with drop-crotch skinny jeans? Don't even get me started on jeggings!
I know this is a bit off topic for this blog, but do you think it would be appropriate for your professor to show up to class in skinny jeans? Yikes, there's another one of those images. Do you think it would be appropriate to show up for a job interview in skinny jeans--unless of course you're going for that super model job you've always dreamed of.
