I became familiar with EARugby last year when I received two of their indigo styles to review. I really liked those jeans and so I was very excited to find out that the brand wanted me to review another pair – the Kyra Cropped Skinnny in Red.

The Red color instantly grabbed my attention. Achieved with a pigment wash it has a deep darker shade and purple undertones coming together into a pretty pinkish hue. The intense hand sanding and extreme 3D whiskering on the front, behind the knees and at the hem create a rugged, worn-out look and an interesting contrast to the somewhat feminine color. This combination is totally unexpected and fresh – I like it! The contrast spicy orange stitching is also a cool detail that brings out the red even more and adds some visual interest.

The Kyra Cropped Skinny is EARugby’s newest fit and I thought it was great. The lower front rise hits about 1.5″ below the belly button and is sexy while also comfortable. The back rise is slightly higher and provides good coverage so you won’t “spill out” while moving or sitting down. Overall this slim from top to bottom silhouette is very flattering and looks great on. I also like the short 27″ inseam that gives the jeans a classy feminine touch which is exaggerated by the “grungy” finish and wash.

The fabric of these cropped skinnies is a 98% cotton and 2% spandex blend with a slubby texture. It has a canvas-like construction that I didn’t necessarily like. While the hand feel seemed to be OK at first touch the jeans felt rough and scratchy when I was wearing them. I must say that I have very sensitive and easily irritated skin; maybe this wouldn’t be a problem for most people. But I do wish this denim was a lot softer 🙁

Size-wise the Kyra seems to be dead on. EARugby chart starts with size 25 and as you can see on the pictures the jeans are exactly one size bigger which makes sense considering that I usually wear a 24. So you can definitely get you regular size.

The EARugby Kyra Cropped Skinny in Red is a nice pair of jeans that fits and looks great. It is pretty, stylish and versatile and comes with a reasonable price tag of $148.
