Ok, I’ll admit it: I wore dad jeans many years ago. Skinny jeans annoyed me, but I bought a pair of these “cigarette sticks,” and people remarked how good they looked. They worked because I have no butt. Just a back that goes down to my thighs. (I come from a line of “butt-less” ancestors.)
Now the millennials are getting rid of skinny jeans! Why? Because each generation must differentiate itself from the prior era.
As an architect, I know what looks stylish one moment will be replaced — not by something new, but from the past. Fashion is less linear, more circular.
