Think thin, trendy apparel retailers are saying this year, but while skinny jeans and longer tops may drive young shoppers into stores, the look may alienate others whose physiques beg for a roomier fit.
Teen retailers and upscale fashion houses have the most to gain by the harder-edge look, but more traditional retailers will likely opt to sit out the trend. After years of baggy or flare-cut jeans embellished with every manner of adornment, from rips and frays to rhinestones, fashionistas are trumpeting the arrival of punk-inspired, 80s-style skinny pants in darker washes and minimal detail.
