If you read my previous Denim of Virtue review you know that I became a fan of the brand from the first moment I put on a pair of their jeans 🙂 The second pair of skinnies, the Ankle Skimmer in Rosette 8002, only reassures me that this is definitely a brand to watch.
The color is gorgeous isn’t it?! So soft and sophisticated it transforms these jeans from casual into a more elevated and elegant piece. It is also the perfect shade for the matte leather-like coating and has a very natural looking finish. I like this unique combination of subtle edge, sass and class!
Before I start describing the cut I must call out that this particular pair doesn’t necessarily fit me as they are supposed to. And though this is my regular size 24 they are slightly big which I don’t mind considering the overall leather-ish look.
The Ankle Skimmer is a very slim, body-hugging fit. Featuring a low 7.5″ rise and narrow 9.75″ leg opening this silhouette is really sexy. The higher back rise and low back pockets are really flattering to your tush. Even in my case when the jeans are not quite tight enough they still look good which for me is one the biggest signs of great construction.
The fabric of these jeans is pretty light-weight for a coated one so they will be perfect for summer as well as the early fall weather. The blend of 98% Cotton / 2% Elastane is soft and pretty stretchy and is very comfy to wear.
Judging from my particular pair I’d say these skinnies run a bit big but as I mentioned before this kind of works for their concept. If you prefer your coated jeans with a bit of room then your regular size will be the right one. For those who like skin tight silhouettes it may be better to try going down a size.
The Denim of Virtue Skinny Ankle Skimmer in Rosette 8002 is a beautiful pair of jeans and a nice change from other glossy glazed styles. Very chic, stylish and different these skinnies will elevate any outfit and add something extra to your look!
