Yes, I agree with this. That was sort of why I was saying for people to not overload on too many flares because of this. For some that feel the straight is too drastic, they should try easing into straighter legs by going boot cuts first for transition.
Skinny straight legs are absolutely in EVERY ad, on every celebrity, and where that goes, everything follows.
I have DKV Billy stretch, Mickey, SFAM Straight MNE, a Yanuk skinny straight leg in dark rinse, ESewn Decca. I am going to attempt a Julie...but I think I will prefer the Billy for sure. The stretch Billy is very narrow at the bottom. The darker the better IMO.
I am also going to give a try to making straight legs out of some of my other jeans. Not sure yet which ones I am going to experiment on..will keep you informed.
The Gap Black skinny I havent seen yet but they can't be bad. Also a good transition for someone that isnt sure of the style on them personally and doesn't want to drop bigger bucks on premium.
