They really only look good on extremely petite as well as skinny girls. Not men (or should I say boys? ), and not anyone over about 100 lbs, usually. or anyone with any muscles in their legs. imo.
I'm not overweight but I have thick calves and thighs so skinny jeans not only look silly on me but are also uncomfortable. So it's annoying that they're so popular in the stores I tend to shop in. The "distressed" look, too - I thought that would die ages ago and it's still hanging on. gross.
