Without a doubt there is nothing more versatile than a pair of black skinny jeans. They are definitely a staple in every girl’s wardrobe. But this isn’t so true in summer – for those few months we try to avoid black clothing like a black cat steers clear of a sizzling street. Well this season 7 For All Mankind offers us a great alternative, the perfect Spring/Summer option – the Slim Illusion Skinny Contour Jeans in Washed Black.
The color is fantastic and ideal for every season. The usual stark darkness of black denim is muted by a stonewash process and softened-up by minor handsanding and front whiskering. Tastefully done distressing and minimal abrasion on the seams and edges adds a cool factor without taking away from the versatility we love about black jeans. The wash is incredibly well-balanced and simply genius.
The 7FAM Skinny Fit is definitely one of the best around and when combined with a contour waistband that meticulously follows the curve of your body it is just beyond amazing. The medium front 6.5” rise works very well to flatter your stomach area while the higher 11.5” back rise with slightly narrower pockets creates a nicely rounded tush. This silhouette is meant to be second skin slim and it definitely is; even the front pockets are made shallower to maintain the smoothest line possible. The ultra-narrow leg opening and shorter 28” inseam also keeps the look clean and sexy.
These skinnies are made of 7FAM’s famous Slim Illusion denim which is characterized by its incredible stretch and retention. It does indeed have an amazing amount of elasticity which helps to ensure a very close fit as well as comfort. Great shape recovery clearly shows when, even after a whole day of running errands and driving, your jeans still look nice and tight. This blend of 90% cotton, 6% polyester and 4% spandex also has a very pleasant and soft “hand”.
As you probably already know, distressed styles are typically recommended to be dry cleaned in order to avoid further destruction. For these jeans however 7FAM suggests machine wash in cold water – the majority of distressing is fairly minor and the slashed knee has backing behind the hole that will prevent it from tearing apart during the wash. It also protects you from ripping your jeans while putting them on – oh how many times I’ve almost done that to some of my skinnies!
I am completely obsessed with these 7 For All Mankind Slim Illusion Skinny Contour Jeans in Washed Black 2! They are an absolutely brilliant combination of style, a great fit and undeniable versatility!
