If there’s one denim staple you need in your closet for all four seasons in the year, it’s the perfect basic skinny jean. It’s a style you can wear with the most variety of tops, shoes, outerwear, and… let’s face it, genres of street style savoir faire. If you want to get the most out of it, we recommend a neutral, medium wash with a bit of stretch (you might need it after Thanksgiving dinner… and for a few months afterward). Long story short, the Henry & Belle Ideal Super Skinny Ankle Jean is one basic skinny we’d highly recommend. Our blog editor, Michelle Christina, explains.
What was your first thought when you tried them on? These are really stretchy, but the fabric doesn’t feel thin and cheap. The weight of the denim is ideal, seriously. And… whoa, no front pockets.
Where/when would you wear these? Definitely a great casual jean. I’ll be wearing them with oversized sweaters and moccasins until snow falls (and then I’ll switch to snow boots). I can see these being a great jean to pack when I’m traveling too. Versatile, and I bet I’ll always feel good in them. Might take me a while to get used to not having front pockets though!
How’s the fit? It’s great. They sit high enough on the hips and aren’t suctioned to my legs, but they still have a distinct skinny jean feel. I think these may have set a new standard for skinny jeans in my closet…
