Last week I was invited to the “mysterious” Levi’s Haus in West Hollywood where I had the chance to see their celeb customization “lab”, the re-born Orange Tab line, the 501 Jean Anniversary Installation and even pick up a couple of awesome pieces to review. The High Rise Skinny in Pitch Black is one of those styles and here is why I loved them so much from the minute I put them on.
I really like the minimalistic elegance of these jeans! The high-waisted slim silhouette in rich jet-black is very chic and sophisticated. Even the simplest tee pared with these pants will instantly be transformed into a more appealing and cooler top. The tonal stitching and plain hardware keeps the look clean and polished. I really like Levi’s back label approach and how they modify the color and material to complement each individual style. The black patent label chosen for these jeans couldn’t be more suitable.
I typically prefer to wear low to mid-rise bottoms; for some reason high-waisted pants have always felt a little bit suffocating. I started to come around after getting a few high rise styles that I liked and these Levi’s skinnies have completely convinced me that higher waists can also be for me. They are very comfortable and don’t cause that “tied-up” feeling that I absolutely can’t stand. Besides that they are so flattering and instantly make your stomach appear super flat like you do sit-ups every hour 🙂 I also love how these jeans make my somewhat disproportionally short legs look longer and therefore leaner.
The denim of these Pitch Black skinnies is the 98% cotton/2% elastane blend that we all know and love 🙂 It is a medium weight fabric that adds a good amount of structure to the jeans and will also keep you pretty warm even on cooler days. The hand feel is very soft and velvety – without a doubt you will love it.
As you probably already know, high-waisted styles can run a bit smaller than low and mid-rise ones so I was very glad that I had the chance to try these jeans on first before getting them. My concerns were unnecessary as my usual size 24 fit just right.
If you guys are looking for a nice pair of high-waisted pants I would definitely recommend checking out the Levi’s High Rise Skinny in Pitch Black. So flattering, so versatile and effortlessly chic they are a great piece to have in your wardrobe. And with the price tag of $78 they become even more attractive, don’t you agree!?!
