MC scored a pair of Henry & Belle Super Skinny Ankle in Onyx wash (you’ll recall her adoration for her medium-wash Super Skinny H&B‘s posted a few months back). Indeed, her adoration continues for this cut and this brand. Read her remarks on fit, style, and versatility below.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
My first thought was how much I love this signature thick stretch denim. There is nothing flimsy about these jeans (that’s a noteworthy problem with some stretch denim on the market, and you don’t want them sagging off your butt after wearing them a few times).
Where/when would you wear these?
I usually reserve dark wash for the colder months—though it’s been overcast and gloomy in NYC lately, so I think I will get a few more wears out of them before I put them away for winter (which is not to say they might not make a few appearances in the nightlife this summer!). I wore them for the review with a sheer peach blouse I found at Crossroads Trading the day before. I think the color combo is great.
How’s the fit?
They’re insanely comfortable and the fit is appropriately snug. I’ve been on a mid-rise/high-rise kick lately though, so I did spend my first wear wishing they would come up just a few inches more (making it easier to tuck the sheer top in). That aside, for my body type, Henry & Belle has never failed me!
Grab yourself a pair of these jeans here.
