This Is Why Elle Fanning Doesn't Wear Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are certainly ubiquitous in fashion—even the first lady of France and former first lady Michelle Obama have jumped on board with the casual staple. But Elle Fanning just might be the only 19-year-old who doesn't swear by them.

In a new interview with InStyle, Fanning explained why she's shunned skinny jeans. "I think I’m more partial to the 1970s [style]," she told the magazine. "I think that [style] works with the way I am … I don’t wear skinny jeans. Right now, there are these Balenciaga jeans that are cropped, and they’re kind of low but baggy. I keep wearing those over and over. And Acne jeans, I’ve always loved those." Are you anti–skinny jeans too? Tell us what you wear instead in the comments below.
