Rated 5 out of 5Â by planetqueen amazing jeans
First off, full disclosure - I purchased these jeans on sale from a different retailer. Although I've had my eye on them for some time, I just couldn't bring myself to try them at full price. Now that I have them, I have to say they are some of the most gorgeous, flattering pants I've ever put on. They look very shiny n the photo and when you take them out of the package, but when you get them on the sheen is much more subtle. They look like real - and expensive - leather. They're made out of a lightweight, stretchy but substantial denim and feel very fluid to the touch. They are super comfortable, but so flattering. Although they're meant to be cropped, I'm petite, and they hit me right at the ankle. The snaps at the bottom are not too bulky to be tucked into boots, which is great considering the length on me. I wear size 26-27 jeans, usually 27 in skinny jeans because of my larger legs, and in these the 27 is a perfect fit. I rated them as a bit small only because usually size 27 skinny jeans are very snug in the legs on me but too big in the waist; these fit perfectly all over. The cut is very slimming, and although it's on trend, these have a classic look to them that will keep them in your wardrobe for years. Also, the lightweight fabric means they can be worn in spring and fall, too. The only negative I see is that dry cleaning is recommended, but I'll probably hand wash them anyway. Also, although the front zippers are functional, there are no front pockets. I was almost hoping I would not like these because of the price, but I love them so much I'm definitely going to keep them. I would especially recommend them for petites.
