Frankie B. is one of those brands that you just can’t help but notice. Their denim is very eye-catching and instantly grabs your attention. I can’t even tell you how many times I was drawn into Kitson by a pair of crazy cool Frankie B. jeans in the store window. The Stars and Stripes Skinny in Black/Red is definitely one of the most daring printed jeans I have ever owned and because of that I love them.
I really enjoy how cool and fun these jeans are! Even on the Venice Beach Boardwalk where almost nothing seems original when compared to everything else going on these skinnies got a lot of “rad!” comments! The decision to do the legs in two different prints and the actual choice of prints make these jeans very special. The in-your-face reference to the American flag totally adds an amusing and witty element. With that said Frankie B.’s Stars and Stripes don’t come across cheesy or tacky and in fact simply look super stylish.
Frankie B.’s skinnies are really awesome! The fit and its execution are both fantastic. The super low (7.125″) rise is mega sexy and goes so well with the bold and intense style of the jeans. The higher 13.125″ back rise with pretty low pockets gives your butt a nice boost and round shape. In general the silhouette is very flattering and showcases your body in the best possible way. I usually prefer a shorter inseam for skinnies but in this case the 31″ length didn’t bother me at all and the very narrow 10″ leg opening reduces the bulk at the bottom to a minimum.
Stars and Stripes’s denim has a somewhat unusual content of 72% cotton, 12 % poly, 15% rayon and 1% spandex which provides great elasticity and a nice, soft hand feel. Therefore these jeans feel great on, are super comfy and look good throughout the day without bagging out.
I got these skinnies in my usual size and am very satisfied with the way they fit. Only the waistband could be slightly smaller for me but other than that I wouldn’t change a thing.
No doubt the Frankie B. Stars and Stripes Skinnies in Black/Red are intensely bold, unique and creative and are made for confident and stylistically secure people. Their fun, fresh look adds a little bit of fashion “fireworks” to your everyday life and because of that there’s no need to wait for July, 4th to wear them.
