Fall Wardrobe Essential:Classic Skinny Jeans

Now that white jean season is officially over until next Easter it is time to grab the perfect pair of classic blue skinny jeans for fall. I haven't worn blue jeans in several months because if I wear pants during the summer months it's definitely white jeans. I know I've blogged about jeans before but it's always good to have a fresh post at the beginning of a new season, and my newer followers can catch up on my denim faves!

My favorite designer skinny jeans:
Citizens of Humanity Avedon skinny jeans
I got these last year and absolutely love them. The fabric is so soft and has the perfect amount of stretch. They look great tucked into my cowgirl boots or with my Tory Burch flats. I highly recommend these-worth the investment!

My favorite bargain skinny jeans:
Levi's 535 Leggings
These are called leggings but they are basically just regular skinny jeans. I bought a pair of these last year at Macy's. They are comfortable and fit well and a great price! I got compliments on them-one of my friends even thought they were Citizens! These are in the Juniors section so sizing is a little different. 

Here are a few more pairs of great classic skinny jeans. I've never owned a pair of any of these but do know they are great styles from great brands:
J Brand 811 Mid Rise Skinny Jeans
These are frequently featured in magazines like People Style Watch and they are known to be a favorite of Kate Middleton!

Joe's Jeans The Skinny
I love my white skinnies by Joe's Jeans and I'm sure their classic blue skinnies are just as amazing. A couple of my good friends are Joe's Jeans fans as well.

Paige Denim Skyline Skinny
I've heard great things about the Paige Skyline skinny jeans.

Here's a bargain tip for designer skinny jeans-check out the outlets! I've been to a Joe's Jeans outlet before and they have a great selection. Also every time I've been in an Off Fifth Saks outlet they have a wide selection of Paige Denim, Joe's Jeans, and 7 For All Mankind. The jeans at these places are less than retail plus the Saks outlet often has an additional 20% off certain brands. I haven't personally seen their selection, but I've heard of friends scoring great designer deals at Nordstrom Rack as well.

What are your favorite brand and style of skinny jeans?


  1. I love CofH! I'm just so short and they're all super long. I hate getting things altered, but I love the way these fit :)

    1. I'm only 5'3" and I like to avoid getting pants altered as well. Skinny jeans work really well for me because I can scrunch them around the ankles and they don't look too long.

  2. Love your blog!
