Frankie B. is a brand that always dares you with its provocative low rises, loud prints and flashy looks. They never bore you and you definitely won’t be boring in them. Frankie B. continues to prove that it is fun and cool to be brave in fashion with each new collection and Holiday’13 is no exception. The Bondage Skinny in Oxblood is a piece from their Holiday, or should I say “Party,” line that I received last week to review.

These skinnies (in black) were first introduced in Fall’13 and instantly caught my attention. They looked AWESOME on the model in their Lookbook! But the bigger question for me was how they would look on a regular person; these jeans seemed like they might reveal every little flaw. So it was super cool to have the opportunity to review them and find out if my concerns were valid. I was happy to get the Oxblood color in these jeans; the color is gorgeous and works beautifully with the sheer black mesh with flesh background and is less expected than black. It also balances out the ultra sexy look of the see-through paneling and makes this somewhat risqué style more sophisticated and chic not to mention it is such a beautiful hue for the Fall Season!

These Bondage Skinnies are offered in the “Perfect Fit” and the name speaks for itself. I LOVE it! Surprisingly “How low can you go?” is not the motto for this pair of jeans – the rise is much higher than you’d expect from Frankie B. at about 8 1/4″ on the front vs. the brand’s signature 7 1/4″ front rise. Therefore you get plenty of coverage to camouflage your mid-section without a problem. I’ve always loved how Frankie B.’s make my butt so firm-looking and round and these skinnies didn’t disappoint. The 32″ inseam is pretty long for me but the narrow leg opening (only 10″) eliminates bulk of the stacking so I decided to keep the length as is.

The denim is a blend of 42% lyocell, 33% cotton, 15% rayon, 9% polyester and 1% spandex making it quite thin and very stretchy. These qualities really help to flawlessly incorporate the mesh inserts which are also thin and elastic without creating any bulging or tension between the two fabrics.

There is more to the Frankie B. Bondage Skinny in Oxblood than just the sex appeal of an edgy design. Think about them as a great pair of jeans that make you look great and perhaps even feel a bit braver 🙂

I am the EU contributor and product reviewer for Denimology. From the time I was 5 years old browsing through my first fashion magazine I knew I wanted to be in this industry. While working as a Merchandiser at Gloria Jeans, the largest denim manufacturer and retailer in Russia, I discovered my passion for denim. It fascinated me then and years later it fascinates me even more. Every day I learn and discover something new and exciting about denim and am thrilled to do it hand in hand with all of you!
