Alicia Keys was enjoying a family day out in New York City. She sported a double denim outfit comprised of a pair of high waisted skinny ankle jeans and a denim shirt, both pieces in the same very light blue, almost bleached wash.
Unfortunately, this time Alicia’s choice of denim was not the best one. Light blue wash skinny jeans always tend to make you look heavier. Adding a great amount of stretch and being in an ankle length only makes matters worse. You can clearly see all the folds and bumps on Alicia’s legs, especially on the back. She could have avoided this by choosing a less stretchy and darker wash kind of denim style.
When buying light blue skinny jeans, make sure they are of a heavier weight and with as little stretch as possible, a 100% cotton and 2% elastane would be ideal, like the Joe’s from the collector edition, the AG Stilt crop, and the Ciggy jeans from James.
