Despite their lengthy history and practical nature, jeans are no strangers to fads. There were the bell bottoms that made their grand debut during the 60's. The look made a comeback in the 90's and has seen new life recently, as it is now, the latest trend. Next is the low rise, a cut that dominated the early 2000's. It was a style that we thought would never go away but has finally been exiled from clothing shelves, for now. Another is the skinny that has seen spikes and dips in demand over the seasons. All of these fads among several others, have taken their turn through the revolving door of fashion. However, there are three that have managed to last the test of trends.
