Printed pants were definitely one of my favorite trends this Spring/Summer and I am very excited about them continuing into the Fall season; so fun and sometimes unexpected, prints have given denim a whole new personality! I can’t even tell you how often I find myself smiling when I open my closet full of colorful jeans and how much I enjoy wearing all of these fashionable novelties! The only downside, if you can even call it that, is the fact that a lot of them are not the easiest to outfit. In fact, most of the time a quite simple top in a focused color palette is the best if not the only choice for such a pant. But the 7 For All Mankind Skinny in Blue/Black Coated Techno Weave is a completely different “animal”.
These jeans became one of my favorites right away. The print is just so fresh and cool and so unlike anything I have ever seen. The weave pattern is somewhat fine and subtle while still being quite eye-catching making them work great with a simple solid color shirt while also looking nice with other printed garments without competing with them. I love, love, love such versatility! The black and blue color combo also plays into this feature. I have always been very fond of bright cobalt and this jean once again reminds me why – the electric blue is simply stunning! The color is rejuvenated under the smooth, glossy layer of coating making these jeans look even livelier and more vivid.
I love the 7 For All Mankind skinnies and these jeans are no exception. The Second Skin is the slimmest silhouette offered by the brand; it definitely provides a very close, snug fit and shapes your body in the most flattering way. The fairly low rise (6.75″ on the front) looks modern and makes perfect sense for this particular style. The shorter 30″ inseam also works to enhance the contemporary image of these jeans.
Techno Weave skinnies are made of relatively lightweight fabric that has been somewhat reinforced with a layer of coating. However, unlike a lot of other coated jeans, these are not stiff at all and actually have a very nice and supple hand feel. Even with the “glaze” the denim keeps its softness and great elasticity making the jeans surprisingly comfortable.
I am very excited to have the 7 For All Mankind Skinny in Blue/Black Coated Techno Weave in my wardrobe and know that I will wear them quite often even considering my vast denim collection. They really are special and unique while also being low-maintenance and easy-to-wear. But what’s even more important – I love to look at myself when I’m wearing them (and my husband does too)!
