Paige Denim Jimmy Jimmy Skinny in Nico Blue Galaxy Full

Now that Holiday prep is in full swing, I’m excited to share this review for one of my favorite Holiday denim styles, the Paige Denim Jimmy Jimmy Skinny in Nico Blue Galaxy. As you already know, I’m a huge fan of Paige Denim, specifically because I think the team over at Paige consistently nails the collection every season,  showing the best trend denim and sportswear pieces. They’re my go-to for every season’s must have trends, and I have Paige pairs in my closet ranging from colored and printed skinny jeans, perfectly distressed slouchy boyfriends, the perfect chambray shirt (which has wandered over to my boyfriend’s side of the rack…) and my go-to cropped denim jacket. I always count on Paige to offer up the first (and best) iteration of every denim trend so this season, when I saw they updated their bestselling Jimmy Jimmy Skinny with killer metallic knee patches, I pounced.

A few years ago (during the tail end of the colored denim trend) I saw a collection from a brand showing full metallic blue skinny jeans. And while there was definitely a wow factor, they weren’t exactly wearable. (Though I did love the idea of looking like Zenon …) That trend never really took off, but now, metallics are back as an accent, a patchwork detail on an already loved and on-trend denim silhouette. That’s why I love these Jimmy Jimmy Skinnies – they pack a dose of wow but not too much. They’re the type of jeans the boys in my life think are cool, and not too fashion crazy.

The Jimmy Jimmy Skinny fit is like a slim boyfriend jean. The rise comes in around 8.5″ sitting like a mid-low rise. The fit is slim through the waist and hips and then falls to a slightly more slouchy fit through the leg opening. At the ankle, the opening is 13″, fitting more like a straight leg jean. They also ship with a light rolled cuff which gives them a kicky crop styling. The crop here is key – it keeps the proportions from overwhelming you, and still shows off the slimness of the ankle. Plus, they’re the perfect length to show off your shoes.

For styling, I like that you can dress them up or down. The Jimmy Jimmy Skinny in Nico Blue Galaxy gets an added dose of sex appeal paired back to a sky high pump and looks sleek and sophisticated paired with one of the season’s menswear-inspired car coats. For a more dressed down look, I love the jeans paired back to classic ballet flats or a trendy sneaker and a creamy fisherman-style knit. Either way, the pop of blue metallic is an unexpected touch perfect for adding a little glitz to jazz up your holiday denim looks.
