It took me a while, but I think I have finally mastered the art of the skinny jean!
I went weeks avoiding them, then a few more weeks hunting for the right pair (and failing miserably), to finally finding a few pairs that actually fit and I adore!
What a whirlwind of emotions just over a pair of pants!
I love this fashion must-have because they can be paired with boots, flats or heels and still look fashionable and amazing! I also love that at 5'2" they make me look taller! Woohoo! These gorgeous colored bottoms are the perfect addition to a silk blouse, fun sweater or even a cool t-shirt.
Here are a few things that I have learned throughout my skinny jean search:
1. They are not all the same length!
I bought one pair in a size 3 in one store that are the perfect length and bought a size 4 in another store that are 4 inches too long!
2. They don't all fit the same way!
In Old Navy I had to try on a size 6, just to be able to get them on. Then when I went to J.CREW, H&M, and Delia's my size would range from a 2-4. I make sure to try them on in every store, to avoid bringing them back the next day.
3. They aren't all in the same price range!
I found a pair of black skinnies that I really liked in H&M. It took a little more searching and trying on various pairs than I would like, but for $24.95 they were a steal. In a store like J.CREW, where the quality is much better, you'll end up paying a bit more for them.
I am happy to say that I am now the proud owner of four pairs of skinnies, from different stores, in different colors and sizes! I can't wait to pair my mint, mustard, black, and blue jean skinnies with all types of fun blouses and sweaters!
Did you experience these same things buying your skinnies?
