This Fall/Winter season grunge is back but in a modern way; at least in the fashion world! 🙂 Studs, leather, mesh and plaid are filling the closet of every fashionista and I am super excited to be at the center of it all with my new 7 For All Mankind Skinnies in Ruby Red Plaid.
This is a fantastic pair of jeans for a few reasons. First off, I ADORE the color! The beautiful and rich red is not too bright or too dark and has a deep medium shade perfect for their non-conformist appeal. The plaid print is done in garment form giving it intentional imperfections that only intensify the individualistic and rebellious vibe of these jeans.
The 7 FAM Skinny fit is cool and sexy! When you put this slim fitting silhouette on you truly realize the accuracy of its name – these jeans literally fit you like a second skin. With that said they still shape your body and mask minor flaws. The medium rise with a higher back flatters your stomach and gives you a nice, round toosh almost like the control top on your favorite hosiery 🙂 The 30″ inseam is on the shorter side and the hem hits right below the ankle without any bulging.
The material of these skinnies is a very comfy, fairly light-weight stretch twill, sublimely soft and supple! You can wear these pants all day long without any discomfort even considering the slimness of the fit. It also has great shape recovery and snaps right back after sitting all day. Most of these qualities can be attributed to the unusual fabric content – this cotton blend has 4% poly along with 2% spandex.
I bought my regular size 24 in these Plaid Skinnies and am very satisfied with the way they fit; I would not change a thing. However, just to give you heads-up, when I first saw them in the store they looked super small. I was 90% sure I’d have to size up but I was wrong and they were perfect!
I am stoked about this grunge revival; it’s so awesome that designers brought it back! Being a kid in the late 80’s and early 90’s my daily look was a school uniform and flats, I feel like I never really had a chance to experience this fashion era. Now I, as well as you, can and the 7 For All Mankind Skinny in Ruby Red Plaid is a “rad” way to do it 🙂
