Skinny Jeans vs Slim Jeans

Trousers or pants are clothing worn on the lower part of the body, usually from the waist to the ankle with separate covering for both legs. They are made from a wide variety of materials, but the most common are those that are made with denim.

Denim trousers or pants are called jeans. They were originally made for the U.S. Army and for working people because they were very durable. Today, people from all walks of life, gender, and age groups wear jeans. Jeans have several different styles or fits.
