No One Is Wearing This Skinny-Jean Trend Anymore

If we had to guess the item in your closet that gets the most wear, we’d put our money on your favorite pair of skinny jeans. They’re comfortable, versatile, and hey, flattering. While we’ll always want to fall back on our classic blues and blacks, though, having fashion-forward skinnies is a must too. Now that we’re a few months into 2017, there’s no time like the present to do a little spring-cleaning (and shopping) and jump on the skinny-jean styles that are going to be huge in the coming months.

To help navigate which trends are in and out, we reached out to retail analytics company Edited. Head analyst Emily Bezzant took a closer look at the market data and shared which trends are flying off the shelves—and which have stopped moving the needle. According to Bezzant, “Skinny jeans in nontraditional denim colors are selling out slowly despite seeing higher discounts, notably pinks.” Yes, the data shows that colored skinny jeans are on the way out.

So while it may be time to ditch rainbow-hued skinnies (unless you really love them—in which case, by all means, continue to wear), Bezzant predicts that denim with special details is going to take over this year. She specifically calls out ripped knees, embroidery, and frayed or step hems as standout styles. “With activewear becoming more acceptable attire for daywear, denim has had to become that bit more special to warrant sales,” she said.
