Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to find a pair of great-looking black skinnies? The straight-legged black Paige denim pants I miraculously found at a clothing swap are nearing the point of no return. I’ll get another couple months out of them but the color is fading from all the washing and wearing, the hem is fraying from rubbing against my shoes.
These black skinnies from Liverpool Jeans arrived just in time to be the perfect substitute. The material is a little thinner than what I would call classic denim, but that makes them much more comfortable to wear all day long. For the average-height person these will be long enough to wear heels. For me and my long legs, they are perfect for flats or tucked into boots. I also like how they are skinny jeans without stopping circulation. There are some pants in stores now that literally are like compression hose, no matter the size you try on. HA!
Liverpool, also sent me a pair of boot-cut blue jeans, which I also like. Again, for me they are too short to wear with heels, but they work just fine with flats. The company’s jean collection is pretty extensive. You can get skinny jeans, boot cut, straight-legged, etc… and all in a variety of colors and styles.
Totally random, but another thing I adore about these jeans, is that the inside material of the pockets has a British flag and a Beatles quote! I love the detail on a part of the clothing that no one will see but the person slipping them on.
Tip: Don’t settle for mediocre skinny jeans. Go for ones that fit you and your needs perfectly, even if it takes some serious searching.
