Upon the release of Alexa Chung‘s newest AG Jeans collection, she made a statement that allowed all hardcore skinny jeans fans to breath a sigh of relief… that is, if they count on It-girls to call the shots in their wardrobe. In an exclusive post for Refinery29, she shares the inspiration behind her collection, as well as her feedback on the future of the skinny fit. When asked what she would say to those who have declared the death of the trend, she responded:
“I would say they have too much time on their hands. Who sits and thinks about what’s over; it’s all next, next, next for me. Also, I still wear skinny jeans, so I’m probably not the right person to ask. You have to dress for your shape, and I look better in that cut, so I don’t think they’ll die in my wardrobe.”
