I don't know about you but I LOATHE shopping for jeans or bottoms in general. I know I'm skinny but I still have my own body flaws that get accentuated with the wrong fit. I look for jeans that fit well in the thigh without too much pulling/bunching or excess fabric; has a nice lift in the bum, and comfortable waistband that don't dig in. Besides hemming the legs I am not big on alterations, mainly because I don't have a good seamstress and secondly they can be costly.
Comfort is a big deal, I need to be able to sit and squad while wearing them. I remember in the old days when I would go jean shopping and the sales people would always tell me to go a size down because "they stretch so much". I no longer purchase jeans that are one size too small in consideration for the "potential stretch" because I never end up wearing them long enough for them to stretch out.
I hope these reviews will be of help to you with your hunt for the perfect colored skinnies.
These are most denim like in terms of thickness and texture. It's definitely more red and not as orangey in my photos. I tried on the size 25 and I couldn't button up. The fabric is quite rigid with some stretch. It's a shorter rise and a longer inseam.
Rag & Bone $195cad/$165usd
These had the highest rise and the shortest inseam out of the ones I tried on. The color is absolutely gorgeous! Fabric is a nice cotton with a good amount of stretch. Front pockets are faux. I am happy with the fit of the 25, it's snug but not uncomfortably so.
Jbrand twill skinnies $215cad/$176usd
I had tried them on in bright red a while back. For some reason I remembered the fabric being stretchier than the ones I tried on today, which is a new delivery in a darker red. Front two pockets are faux. The fabric is stiffer and coarser compared to the Rag&Bones and not as stretchy. I found the 25 to be tight, even though I can button up but I was not comfortable. Inseam is longer than the Rag&Bone but shorter than Hudson.
AG Stevies $205
Original review can be found here. I just want to add that in comparison, Stevies has the softest and stretchiest fabric. IMO the quality of the Rag&Bone fabric is the best, it had a softness and the right amount of stretch and the fabric looks like it will hold shape and is of great quality cotton. Stevies on the other hand does stretch quite a bit and has a thinner fabric almost like jeggings. The fit is undeniably amazing though.
I don't have photos but I have previous tried Current Elliot colored jeans which were awful me. It's more of a casual boyfriend fit with very loose fitting legs, not a good look on me but probably will look cute on the right person.
Have you tried on any of these colored skinnies? I'd love to hear your thoughts or recommendations.
