Jennifer Aniston has been a style icon for American women, admired for her down-to-earth fashion sense. Despite her fame and fortune, she opts for attire that resonates with the everyday person, embodying the epitome of accessible style. This quality has been ingrained in her persona since she first stepped into the limelight. Very recently, she may have breathed new life into a trend that had been abandoned by the masses for years.

This fashion statement, once considered obsolete and unlikely to resurface, saw a 50% increase in popularity after Jennifer Aniston flaunted it on the red carpet.

Jennifer Aniston made a statement on the red carpet of the 2024 Critics Choice Awards donning a Dolce & Gabbana jumpsuit, complemented by the return of skinny pants. Departing from the trend of wider silhouettes, the actress sported sleek, black skinny pants crafted from satin fabric. Following Jennifer Aniston’s red carpet appearance in the outfit, the popularity of skinny jeans surged by 50%, based on the Instagram page, DATA, BUT MAKE IT FASHION.

Apart from potentially contributing to bringing back the skinny jeans trend, Aniston also brought back some memories from Friends at the 2024 Golden Globes. She debuted a new shoulder-length bob reminiscent of Rachel Green’s iconic ’90s haircut. While her trusted stylist and friend Chris McMillan remained tight-lipped about drawing inspiration from Aniston’s Friends era, fans dubbed the hairstyle “The Rachel 2.0“.

Friends emerged as the platform for Jennifer Aniston’s most popular trendsetting moments, which fans are still striving to emulate in 2024. This also got Aniston the title of the sitcom’s fashion icon. However, there has been a sudden transformation in the air, with another actress being credited with the same reputation.

A recent Instagram post by the same page that reported the spike in skinny jeans popularity hinted that Courteney Cox could be the real fashion icon of the sitcom Friends. Known for portraying Monica Geller, the actress showcased some dazzling outfits on the show. Unfortunately, these were often overshadowed by the fascination with Jennifer Aniston and her trendy attires. Following extensive fashion analysis, the page unveiled three primary themes within her wardrobe.

Fans, although, often recall the actress adorned in florals or lace, her predominant fashion trends encompassed turtlenecks, assorted oversized leather jackets, and an array of chic sleeveless tops. Much like Aniston, Courteney Cox has also been a staunch advocate of the skinny jeans trend, even to this day. However, the exact catalysts behind the resurgence of this fashion trend are still up for debate.
