As you may already know Manhattan based clothing brand BLANKNYC is known for their modern, edgy, and approachable denim silhouettes. Their BLANKNYC Cropped Skinny in Club-Kid jean embodies just that. Keep reading for my full review!
The first thing you notice about the BLANKNYC Cropped Skinny in Club-Kid is it’s fresh haircut. The uneven cut-off hem at the bottom of the pant gives this pair of denim a unique casual feel with a whole lot of grit! The front of the raw hem is approximately an inch shorter than the back (does this count as a mullet?!). Perfectly poised for daytime this is the ideal pair for a skinny jean fanatic who loves taking risks!
The material of the denim is durable and non-stretch to the touch. If you’re looking for stretchy denim this is probably not the jean for you. The official material percentage is 98% cotton and 2% spandex. I’m wearing a size 28 and the fit is very snug with not much wiggle room. The Cropped Skinny features a perfect 8 ½” mid-rise and 11” bottom opening. As you can see in the photos the jeans are a bit too long for my 5’5” height as the crop should hit a few inches higher on my calf. I wore wedge heels to offset the slightly-too-long length for my stature.
But with a little risk comes great reward! I love the royal blue distressed wash of the Cropped Skinny Club-Kid with the navy colored stitching. The wash has just the right amount of distressed fading on the front pockets and front knees without going overboard. The front side of the denim features three subtle medium oval shaped rips that enhance the approachable vibe and complement the raw hemline! The front pockets are adorned with round concrete studs while the left back pocket has 5 similar sized circles imprinted on the denim for BLANKNYC branding. Speaking of the rear pockets, I can appreciate the medium size of the pockets for a slimming backside look.
This is a perfect pair of cropped skinny jeans for the weekend, running errands, or heading to lunch with a friend. Just add a casual tank or baggy t-shirt! Take it from the BLANKNYC mantra on their website: Fill in the [*%!&?#] blank. You don’t have to ask me twice!
