Finding Fall: Black Skinny Jeans

I got my first pair of black jeans about seven years ago. They were slim fit and not exactly in style at the time. Call me unfashionable or ahead of my time, I just love the look of black jeans and always have. Luckily for me black jeans are back in a big way, so I have many option to choose from when it comes to replacing my old faithfuls. If you’re on the black jean bandwagon, here are a few options for you:

Gap is so into black jeans right now that they are the main feature on their homepage. It makes sense. Classics like black jeans are sort of what Gap is known for. These 1969 Curvy Skinny Jeans are perfection when it comes to black jeans. They don’t look too low cut but also aren’t high rise (which can be hard to pull off with some tops). At $69.95 these are a great option for curvy girls.

Do you wear Old Navy jeans? If you don’t, you should give them a try. At only $34 their jeans are surprisingly high quality and I have found them to be flattering. I read a magazine article once where girls from size 00 to 24 all tried on the same jeans from numerous companies and found Old Navy to be the most flattering. Now you know. These Rockstar Black High-Rise Super Skinny Jeans are a good option if you want a slightly higher rise.

Another affordable option: Uniqlo. This store is one of my new favorites of the past few years. Quality basics in interesting colors, Uniqlo doesn’t do flashy, trendy, or expensive. These Ultra Stretch Jeans in Black will only cost you $29.90. It’s pretty hard to beat that price.

J.Crew has a slightly more expensive option for those who prefer their selections. At $115, the Toothpick Jean in Black are a classic skinny cut. Some curvier ladies complain that J.Crew is cut too straight for them. If you know J.Crew works for you, this is a great option.

Those looking for a designer option can head over to Nordstrom for the Citizens of Humanity “Avedon” Ultra Skinny Jeans. Exclusive to Nordstrom, these beauties come in at $178. These sport a nice mid-rise that I am sort of crazy about.

With so many options there really are black jeans for everyone out there right now. The only struggle is taking home only one…
