I keep in mind my first pair of skinny denims tragically. Possibly as a result of they have been. At 12 years previous, I satisfied my mother to get me a pair from Moist Seal as a result of I used to be bored with the bootcut and bell backside kinds she’d at all times purchase me. However primarily, I wished to look cool. Again then, cropped hemlines weren’t a factor. As a substitute, we wore ours a tad longer than wanted, scrunching the hemlines to masks our ankles. With platforms on our toes, after all. However 15 years later, I’ve no skinny denims in my closet. The final pair I purchased (a snug quantity from Everlane) I gifted to a pal in 2019, after I accepted to myself that I used to be over this development.
