For this review I got the Super Skinnies in White Marble and immediately fell in love with them. The White Marble wash with its milky, bleached-down base and grey-ish streaks and “veins” throughout is naturally pretty while rock ‘n’ roll edgy and bold. Thanks to its earthy, mineral-like character it comes across as more neutral than just a light “spring/summer” wash which makes this style year-around-perfect. In fall/winter this jean (and of course you in it) will look so awesome paired with a dark-hued ankle bootie and a cool leather jacket! Besides being just pretty and versatile the White Marble colorway is also very flattering. As you know many times such streaky, bleached a-la acid washes can make you look bigger and bulkier while in this one the intentionally placed dark and light areas help to avoid this issue.
Here the wash is not the only thing that flatters but the fit does too, very well I must say. The cut of these skinnies is excellent and is in fact one of the best in class. Its medium rise gives you plenty of coverage in the front and back without even a chance of you “spilling out”. The tush is also “taken care of” in these jeans – the smart construction and higher back pockets enhance its shape and visually lift it up. The inseam here is 33” which is very long for a skinny and of course on me (I am 5’7”) it stacks quite a bit. However it gathers in a neat, compact way thanks to the narrow leg opening. Nevertheless, if you are not very tall you will need some alterations.
The White Marble jeans are made of premium American denim called “Super Stretch” a name that speaks for itself. With the content of 86% cotton, 11% polyester and 3% spandex this fabric indeed has a tremendous amount of elasticity and great recovery. The “hand” is smooth and soft – I really like it. I also did a test wash on these skinnies and they came out in perfect condition, just like new. The “Marble” kept its original look without fading or bleeding, the fabric didn’t shrink even a bit and the white leather waist label that I was concerned about the most survived the wash (and tumble dry!) very well too.
On the Henry & Belle web-site it notes that some customers like to size down in this particular style for the closest fit possible. However I went with my regular 24 and they are perfect for me – I definitely wouldn’t go any smaller.
I am stoked that I had a chance to review these Henry & Belle Super Skinny Jeans in White Marble as I am truly impressed! I’m quite sure you will be too. Also be on the look-out for my second Henry & Belle review that will be coming out in August. It’ll be for a brand new awesome style that you will absolutely love!!!
