I may get the Henry & Belle Super Skinny Ankle Jean in Onyx next because these jeans are comfier than my favorite black skinny jeans and more put together than regular black leggings. And it doesn't hurt that Halle Berry is wearing them, too.
Back to doing what I do oh so well: buying (skinny) jeans. Because it had been too long. And Henry & Belle is just too fabulous of a brand not to share. The Henry & Belle super skinny ankle jeans in warehouse look like jeans of the high-waisted-and-perfect-wash kind, they feel like leggings with their soft stretchy fabric and fake pocket at the front, and they are overall comfy as hell. Bonus point: they run big so you'll have to go down two sizes. That's right, two freakin' sizes. And it's not like I have lost weight or anything. Can we agree they are the best jeans ever?
Work Custom Jeans Viper jeans are my new favorite pair of skinny jeans to wear around these days. I got them at Bella Rosa Boutique last weekend and I have worn them every day since then; with flats and heels. They are super soft, the Mechanics wash is superb—dark with some whiskering on the front, and they are slimming and make the cutest bootie. The Viper skinny jeans fit true to size, and don't stretch much (if at all), which I like. A lot.
Vicky and I were at the lululemon store the other day to check out the live simply jacket, but that's not the point of this picture. The point is that we are BOTH wearing the James Jeans Twiggy Jeggings. I've said it before, and I'll say again: the James Jeans Twiggy Jeggings are amazing. They are comfy, trendy and on sale for $68 (instead of $176) on MyHabit.com!!!!!!!! Do I need to say more? As far as sizing is concerned, go down one size for a perfect snug fit.
And, check out our previous post 'the perfect ten' to find out more about why we like the Twiggy Jeggings so much.
The Raven Denim Remy Skinny Jeans in Raw are my go-to pair of skinny jeans. They fit perfectly, the dark wash is absolutely fffabulous, and they are very flattering. So much that I get compliments all the time. I love wearing them in the winter with tall boots, and in the summer, cuffed with flip flops or K. Jacques sandals. I'm getting my third pair because I wear/love them that much. You should get them too before they sell out. They fit true to size.

Looking for a pair of wide leg jeans for this summer? Look no further. The Citizens of Humanity Hutton High Rise Wide Leg Jeans in Oxford are the best. And, I know what I'm talking about because I already own the Hutton in Dark Paris and in Black. I love that it is high waisted to avoid the 'muffin top' effect, long with a 35'' inseam (yes, 35''!!), and so flattering in the Oxford wash; I love the whiskering at front pockets and behind the knees, and the worn edges and moderate distressing. To wear all summer long with your favorite wedges. They do fit true to size.
With a new season comes numerous new collections of jeans. I bought three pairs of jeans so far, and I don't see an end to it. Oops! My new favorite brand of jeans is Textile by Elizabeth and James. Are you surprised? I'm not. The Textile by Elizabeth and James Cass in Glory Days is the perfect pair of jeans for this summer. The fabric is soft, the medium wash with some neat whiskering at front pockets is just perfect, and it makes the perfect butt (really!). And you can wear it as is, or cuffed; I wear mine cuffed with flat sandals or flip-flops. Note that they run a bit big so go down a size. And, they don't stretch much, which is nice.
If you're obsessed with skinny jeans of all sorts, here is a pair of jeggings you're gonna love; and if you're not into grey cords, this is your chance to still own this fffabulous pair of jeggings. The James Jeans Twiggy Jeggings in Night are simply amazing. The Night wash is the perfect dark wash (read: it's dark without being too dark with a bit of dimension). The fabric is so soft, they feel like leggings yet they look like a pair of skinny jeans, and the overall fit will make you look longer and leaner. Dress them up with pumps and a leather jacket to go out, or dress them down with sheepskin boots on weekend, and you're all set. James Jeans run a bit big so go down one size. They don't stretch much either, which I love.
Another pair of skinny jeans I can't live without. The DL1961 Jessica Zipper Pocket Skinny Jeans in Black are amazing. They fit like a glove, are very flattering—they make the perfect butt, and the zipper detail on the back pocket is just too cute. Also available in a very dark blue wash. I love them both. PS: They do fit true to size, and do not stretch one bit, which I love.
I only wear skinny jeans these days; in fact, I never thought I'd like skinny jeans so much, but I do. They are trendy, are never too short nor too long, and they go with everything: flat shoes, stiletto heels, booties, tall boots, you name it. I already own one pair of skinny jeans in a light wash, and another pair in a very dark wash, and I was only missing the wash in between. The AG Adriano Goldschmied Stilt Cigarette Jeans fit that description. The wash is absolutely perfect, the cut is more than perfect, and they are so comfy, too. They feel like second skin without looking like tight jeggings. Love, love it!

I never thought I'd get to that but I can't live with my skinny jeans. I am wearing bootcut jeans today, and well, it feels so 2007. Not fffabulous!! FFFortunately, I know I can fall back to my new
Hudson Collin Skinny Jeans with Flap Pockets. This the first pair of Hudson jeans I own, and I love love them. The fit is unbelievable, the slightly distressed wash very flattering, and the button-flap pocket at back makes for the perfect booty. These jeans are a bit pricey, but you'll wear them all summer, either cuffed with flats or as is with heels, and right into next winter. Now the question is: why on Earth am I not wearing them today?? Argh!
I was looking for a pair of skinny jeans that are light wash because it's so trendy this summer, and only slightly distressed so I can wear them at work, and guess what? I found them in this pair of James Jeans Ritchie Slim Ankle Leg in US Vintage. So far, I've always worn my skinny jeans with tall boots or high heel booties or pumps, but these James Jeans are so flattering—they make you feel longer, and make such a great butt with the angled back pockets, it only took a minute for me to start wearing them with flip flops. Here is a proof of it!
To wear as is, or cuffed, with high heels or flats, and with long tops or tunics this summer. Note that they run a bit big, so get one size smaller than you usually wear.
I have to admit it's weird to try a pair of bootcut jeans after wearing leggings and skinny jeans all winter long. But I was happy these were James Jeans! The James Jeans Hector High Rise Jeans in Geisha fit so well. They are high rise, long (34'' inseam), very soft, and the pocket design features angled back pockets that shapes the booty. You'll look incredible in them! And you've gotta love the classic wash. I've owned this pair of jeans for three weeks now and they may have become my go-to pair of bootcut jeans this season. Just like Jennifer Aniston who's been spotted wearing them, and is reportedly a fffan!
Note that these jeans run big so get a size smaller than you usually get (now, I like that!!), and they shrink a bit length-wise so wash them first before you get them hemmed.
