The black skinny jean has origins in the 1950s. Then-called drainpipes, they were associated with a bad boy image; film stars such as Marlon Brando sport black jeans in the cult film ‘The Wild One’. Throughout the decades, rock and roll icons such as Elvis Presley feature in iconic photographs sporting black jeans, all the while epitomizing cool, sex appeal, and rebellion. The denim trouser is not only associated with all things grunge, hipster, and Russell Brand-related; a quick search on Tumblr proves that! They can be a welcomed addition to even cute, summer wardrobes, best paired with a sparkly strappy top for a fabulous night out.
