I knew about these jeans way before I got to review them; I remembered first seeing them in Denimocracy’s Fall’14 Lookbook where they were featured twice because they were so AWESOME. The gemstone print is as beautiful in person as it looks in the pictures. So photographically realistic, almost 3D, the soft palette of pastel pinks, light turquoise and warm greys captivates you with its alluring mysticism. I love that the subdued mineral colors and the pattern itself aren’t limited to a particular season (unlike spring-y florals or holiday brocades) so you can enjoy wearing these skinnies in winter as well as in summer.
The Luxe Skinny is a classic skinny fit with a medium rise. Very slim from the waist to hem it creates a clean streamlined silhouette accentuating your curves and flattening your stomach if needed. The 31” inseam is just a tinge longer than I prefer – with a 10.5” leg opening the stacking on the bottom gets slightly bulky. In this case I usually either alter the jeans or wear them rolled. With that said, they are perfect for taller girls J The pieced back pockets are very cool; besides being visually interesting and adding originality to the minimalistic design they also really help to shape up the tush.
These skinnies are made of stretchy twill with a higher (4%) elastane content that is definitely noticeable. The fabric has awesome elasticity and helps the jeans adjust to your individual body shape. It is also extremely soft and comfortable. In addition this twill’s medium weight enables you to wear the Crystal Vision skinnies whenever you want regardless of the season.
The Denimocracy Luxe Skinny in Crystal Vision is definitely a “precious” pair of jeans. Very bold, unique and simply beautiful they deserve a spot not only on the pages of a Lookbook but also in any true Fashionista’s wardrobe.
