Woohoo! Happy New Year everybody! Hope all of you guys had fabulous holidays and are now rested, energized and ready to have an amazing 2014! I sure am 🙂 And I’ll start it with this review for an awesome pair of 7 For All Mankind Skinny Jeans from the [search]7 for All Mankind[/search] Resort ’14 line – the Seamed Skinny in Crackled Leather-Like Antique White.
I love these jeans for a few reasons. First of all, aren’t they just beautiful?! The crackled leather-like coating creates the illusion of authentic sueded leather and looks rich and expensive. The creamy shade of Antique White with its warm undertones complements any complexion and is super easy to outfit. The color and material combo makes these pants a perfect transition piece – pair them with a fluffy coat and black/gold accessories for a chic winter look or go with bright-hued accents for a warmer season. Without a doubt such versatility will satisfy even the most pragmatic among us: the premium price of $198 doesn’t seem as much of a splurge since you can wear these skinnies practically year around.
The Skinny is the slimmest body offered by 7 For All Mankind and is intended to fit like a second skin. The “leather-like” seam is done on the lower part of the knee cap without causing any tension on the leg or creating a “stuffed sausage” look. The medium rise provides plenty of coverage and is suitable for the multi-seasonal nature of the pant. A shorter 30” inseam with narrow 10” leg opening helps maintain the clean streamlined silhouette and is very versatile for different types of footwear.
The material of these skinnies is pretty interesting – it is a warped knit fabric with a crackled leather-like coating. The 90% polyester/10% spandex content is extremely stretchy and soft and feels so comfortable and cozy on the skin just like a pair of PJ’s. Keep in mind that this fabric is not near as structured as denim or even twill and therefore these pants can easily lose their shape (not bag out – they have great recovery) if are not tight enough. So with this particular style I’d recommend to go one size down, at least give it a shot. Don’t have a store around to try them on? The 7FAM web-site offers free shipping and free returns on any order so you can explore your options absolutely risk-free 🙂
The 7 For All Mankind Seamed Skinny in Crackled Leather-Like Antique White is a great pair of pants that offers a fresh cool, fresh look for an exciting and stylish new year.
