... so go on burst my bubble and tell me how last season I am!

With my square waist it's going to take another six months to find a pair of high waisted wide legs that fit!

A friend told me today that the secret of skinny jeans is to wear them tucked into boots. Only then do they balance out the rest of your body supposedly.....

They were just the basic ones in Next, £19.99. They are the only ones that I have tried on that didn't make my bum look like the back end of a bus, I wore them today tucked into jeans but they also look good with these volume tops that are about just now.

Skinny jeans make me look horrible. Very chunky of thigh. Think high waisted ones will make me look like a sausage.

Fed up of all things jean. Will continue to wear bootlegs (out of date emoticon)

Tucking them into boots makes no difference. Just look chunky of thigh and calf

Long tops Fizzbuzz?

Yeah, they look OK, but can't afford to buy lots of long length tops.
