denim women, ankle skinny
SCHOEN by YU – The Color Block Stretch Jean

California based brand, SCHOEN by YU, surprised me with an amazing piece in their collection.  Their super skinny ICON jean in color-block – it’s been ages since I had last seen a pair of color-block jeans and I think this is such a shame. Color-block is he perfect alternative if you want to move away a bit from the dark blue wash skinny jeans, OMG, how many of those do we have in our closets?!?

And Michelle Yu, who’s the other owner and also the designer, besides Lindsey Schoen, came up with another hit besides the color-blocking: these jeans feature zippers as well as moto details!

If you look at the image below, you can see how cleverly Michelle designed these jeans – the two color panels are cut vertically to give you a longer and slimmer silhouette, and the bigger sized back pockets are very eye-catching and will make your butt look very, well, eye-catching! LOL

Michelle explains further:

“This ankle length skinny works equally well with heels or flats. Dual fabrication includes a stretch leather-like sateen and our secret blend of lycra and modal comfortably hugs every curve and retains its shape even with repeated wear. Fashion meets comfort.”

Well done, Lindsey and Michelle! 😉

The Color Block Jean is available at the SCHOEN by YU website.

  1. Are we doing extra tight skinnies again, already? Are the back pockets placed the way they are on the Ingenue? They seem a bit too far apart to flatter. I like big pockets that face the back, like on men’s 501s. Most flattering position for pockets. unless you want to visually widen the butt.

  2. I don’t know much about pocket position, but I do know that every time I wear these jeans people ask me where I got them and want them. They are my favorites.

  3. I own a pair of the Icon jeans and I love them. They are my to go jeans for a time at the playground with my daughter or a night out with my love. I feel always sexy and comfortable. My friends always ask me where I got them! Thanks SCHOEN by YU!!
