A basic skinny jean with a bit of stretch and loads of styling potential is one of the kind of staple we search out in the market. Fidelity Denim‘s Ace skinny jean is one such option, featuring a mid-rise waist (which keeps everything that should be hidden, hidden) a stretch flexibility without feeling too thin. The dark, rich hue of the Ginza Black wash lends itself perfectly to fall styling, including medium-wash denim workshirts and bright plaids. DT’s blog editor Michelle Christina reviews her pair below.
What was your first thought when you tried them on? I thought, “I really never wear black jeans, but these are going to go with everything in my closet, so I might just start.” They’re definitely a versatile pair to have around for fall/winter. I’m wearing them with boots here, but imagine them with wedge heels! Instant dress-up, and it works.
Where/when would you wear these? I wore them for my Black Friday shopping excursion last week. They were great jeans to run around shopping in all day because they’re stretchy and comfy. I think they’re good with an oversized sweater or a cardigan like I wore for this shoot (my favorite new cardigan by Moussy). They’d look just as good with a tailored jacket.
How’s the fit? They’re snug, with stretch—I’m going to hem them a couple inches since they’re bunching up on my knees. The waist fits very well—it’s high enough in the back to keep it classy.
