Jilly Moo's Basic #3 : Skinny or Straight Leg Jean

Friday, September 11, 2009

Every Gal Needs: A pair of skinny jeans or straight leg jeans, your choice (or both!).

Fit: Some think they can't wear skinnies but you really can! At the very least, they are great to wear under tall boots (please don't wear regular jeans with tall boots!) or with ballet flats. Make sure they are the proper length to wear with flats; no dragging or excess bunching around your ankles. We aren't particularly wild about skinny jeans with heals and prefer a straight leg jean for this, but some like it. Straight leg jeans that are worn with heals will not drag the ground because of the cut but can bunch around your ankles. Like the skinny jean, be sure to strike a balance between too short and too long.

Our Favs: J Brand makes a great skinny jean to wear under tall boots. Joe's Jeans Honey Fit is a good straight leg option. Abercrombie Super Skinny is a decent jean for a cheeper alternative but we have found that Abercrombie jeans can be almost as expensive as some designer brands.
