Despite the many people that dislike skinny jeans, I luff them. About 80% of my jeans are skinnies. I am incredibly picky (okay, OCD) about how bootcut and flare jeans go over my shoes and every time I wear them, I am adjusting my hem around my shoes all day. With skinny jeans I don't have to worry about that! I also love boots and skinny are perfect for boots (when you live in Colorado, boots are an 9 month deal). I hope skinny jeans stay around for a (long) while!
