If there was a statue that allowed me to pay homage to skinny jeans, I would gladly pay tribute. Skinny jeans are generally the most flattering form of denim to date. I, along with most of the female population, have more than four pairs in my closet. Skinny jeans are not just limited to females either. Males (sadly) can and do take part in this fashion innovation.
However, as of late, the problem that has arisen is that some skinny jeans are not skinny enough. They do not fit because some jeans sag and bulge and make for an unflattering look, because each body is different.
American Eagle has recently come out with ‘Skinny Skinny’, the most flattering, most fitting jeans one can possible find. I rushed to the store’s website, only to find, what is understated as disappointment when the jeans were no longer in stock.
‘Skinny Skinny’ is American Eagle’s newest, possibly skinniest jean. The jeans are limited edition.
More notably, the jeans are from a spray can. One sprays on the jean for varying thickness and length, and creates the most flattering look for oneself.
However, as of right now, the cans are temporarily unavailable. No doubt due to the cans being sold out as soon as they hit shelves. The spray can jean, is not only unisex, but comes in two colors: ‘indigo’ and ‘bright light’.
According to an article by the New York Daily News, it is all a sad joke on us folks who really want skin-tight jeans. AE’s new product, the very versatile spray-can skinny jeans, is the brand’s humorous marketing attempt at selling form-fitting jeans that targets a wide range of people. Nay, everyone. It allows more people to be able to happily indulge in skinny jeans without worrying about them being unflattering or worse, not fitting, since they spray right on to your skin.
Unfortunately, the jest at the skinny jeans craze means these spray-can jeans cannot be worshipped like their less versatile predecessors. Sigh.

For a while now, denim has come in array of forms, from acid wash to boyfriend style. Pretty soon, there will be yet another addition to the jean family: moisturizing jeans! According to UK Vogue, American jean manufacturer Wrangler, will be releasing the moisturizing Denim Spa line in three feature finishes – Aloe Vera, Olive Extract and Smooth Legs. So what is the line’s claim to fame? Reducing cellulite, of course. It’s a nice alternative to products such as Bliss’ overpriced FatGirlSlim cream, going for $36 a container. At that rate, why not attempt to rid that cottage cheese look on the backs of your legs by buying a $130 pair of Wrangler Denim Spa jeans?
All kidding aside, regular denim allegedly has a way of drying out your legs. This where the moisturizing element comes in handy! Apparently the oils and butters loaded into the finishes offset the dehydration your legs would feel from regular denim. And it’s– wait for it–Lizzie Jagger (yes, that Jagger), who models the creation.
Starting on Jan. 28, you can snag your very own pair on ASOS. Don’t forget what British Vogue calls the “reload spray,” which will apparently allow the jeans to moisturize for another 67 to 95 wears.
Unless these jeans turn out to be a huge success or just happen to be free, I don’t think I will be lining up to purchase a pair anytime soon. Does this innovation remind you at all of those Aloe socks that are sold essentially everywhere now? To me, all I can picture is slimy feeling on my legs that lasts the entire day. Also, how on earth do you wash these jeans? Can you wash them? Moreover, why not skip the $130 on the jeans and buy just the reload spray, which we can then use in all of our clothing?
Nevertheless, I propose we wait and see. Who knows? Maybe it will be among the top trends that surface in a few weeks at New York Fashion Week? If British Vogue is giving the line attention and Mick Jagger’s daughter is promoting them, it must mean something then, right? Conversely, its future could come to an infomercial with a stigma like that of pajama jeans, or worse.
