Denim isn't what it used to be.
Chrissy Teigen recently had some issues with buying jeans.
The model and author, who debuted in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue back in 2010, recently tweeted about her distaste in modern jeans, not being too thrilled with the new trends in denim.
I am shopping for jeans and I gotta say.... I am worried about the current state of jean design— christine teigen (@christine teigen) 1557947410.0
The particular jean design in question is not stated in the tweet, but most of us probably know what she means.
She goes on to tweet about these "weird jeans".
maybe my jean days have passed. it is time for a new era to enjoy...weird jeans— christine teigen (@christine teigen) 1557947460.0
This "new era" definitely isn't a recent concept.
The trends in jeans have changed drastically over the past few decades, from flared bell-bottoms to acid wash to skinny jeans, denim frequently gets makeovers every ten years or so.
Our modern-day jeans are different than that of past generations, and every time they evolve, it is met with criticism.
Followers of Teigen chimed in with their thoughts on the issue.

@chrissyteigen Make the high waisted mom jeans go away!— Jacquie Sandoval (@Jacquie Sandoval) 1557948119.0
@chrissyteigen I'm worried about the current state of all women's clothes!!!— Sheila (@Sheila) 1557948104.0
Teigen is definitely on to something. The current state of jeans is not ideal for women- shallow pockets, legs that are sometimes too skinny, general discomfort- and maybe it is time to revert back to a simpler time in denim history.
Or maybe we can just all wear jeggings.
@chrissyteigen This is why I just buy jeggings at Maurice's. They look like a nice pair of skinny jeans but are so much comfier 😂— Jaclyn (@Jaclyn) 1557959654.0
It's a rough time for fashion.
