While retail forecasters predict that jeggings will perform well for fall, come spring, it’s all about wide-leg jeans

From skinny to wide—just like that. I say this: Hallelujah.

The ’70s-style bell-bottoms and and the universally flattering boot-cut styles are projected to replace the tight jeans for spring, according to a Reuters story.

“The pendulum is swinging away from skinny,” said Ryan Dziadul, a spokesman for VF Corp.’s 7 For All Mankind brand, in the Reuters story. “There are millions of pairs out there. For spring, it’s about bell-bottoms.”

This is very good news for fuller-figured women (translation: most women). Although the truth is, I never did banish my boot-cut and wide-leg jeans from my wardrobe, even during the skinny-jean reign.

Like you readers, I think everyone should wear what flatters their figure, not dress according to what’s hot in fashion.
