Ready to free yourself from the tight embrace of skinny jeans? (Picture: ASOS/Monki/Mango)
Not to stoke the fires of a generation war, but have you heard that skinny jeans are officially uncool?
That’s according to Gen Z, anyway, who have declared that – along with side parts and teddy jackets – skinny jeans are a trend that millennials desperately need to retire.
We know, we know. It’s scary to let go of that tight embrace around your ankle.
When you’ve spent the last decade being loyal to the church of skinny jeans, after dismissing your old, beloved bootcut as unbearably fuddy-duddy, the prospect of trying something different is more than a little daunting.
But trust us, you are entirely capable of pulling off other denim styles. You will be okay.
Below, we’ve rounded up some non-skinny jeans to help ease you out of that denim bondage. You can do this.
