My Favorite Thing: Skinny Jeans You Can Actually Eat In

April 23, 2008 by Rebekah

What: J. Crew Matchstick Jean in Premium Indigo ($98)

Why: For the longest time after skinny jeans came back, I maintained that because I am short and my legs look like legs, not stalks of asparagus, I could not wear them. I resisted as I watched others prance around showing off the sorts of cute flats that got lost under my wide-legged trouser jeans. Finally, purely by coincidence, I grabbed these jeans just to try on with a top that had caught my eye.

As it turns out, the top was completely unmemorable, but these jeans are superb. The dark wash can be dressed up or down, and the bit of stretch in the fabric makes them my skinny and not-so-skinny jeans; if it’s been a heavy on the carbs, light on the gym kind of week, I just hold off washing them for a few wears (TMI, I know, but an oh-so-helpful strategy). And in a world where $200-plus designer denim proliferates, snagging a fabulous staple for less than half that is just so satisfying.
