Skinny jeans-at least based on my observations-are the jeans of choice for today's hipsters. Of course, the youth of today aren't the first generation to sport these tight fitting jeans. The history of skinny jean goes all the way back to the 1950s, and over the years, has become the symbol of bad boy rock 'n' roll. Fashion-forward bands like the Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols and The Ramones all made the jeans part of their uniform. presents. (One dark blue and one dark brown pair, in case you're curious.) What would the hipsters do? Buy a larger pair? Perhaps it is simply best to accept the jeans no longer fit, that she's gone through her skinny jean stage, and it's time for her to wear looser pants. Just not MC Hammer pants, please, or those hideous Z-Cavaricci-style pants. Not for my rocker.
