After loving the J Brand velvet leggings in Charcoal (see my previous review), I decided to try it in a different style and wash.  I went with the 901 Super Skinny in Palace wash.  Just hearing the name “super skinny” and knowing that it is low rise made me doubt the legging would look good on me.  Nonetheless, I gave it a try, and was pleasantly surprised.

I really like the Palace wash.  The color is uniformly dark throughout with a hint of wiskering near the front pockets.  The dark wash provides more flexibility allowing for a more casual look during the day and a chic look at night.  The legging material is super thin so it hugs to your skin.  I was weary it was going to be too tight highlighting my problem areas, and found that it didn’t.  I think the cut and the dark color created a slimming effect.  The dark color also brings out the nice gold stitching details which I think really explains why designer jeans cost so much.

This pair of leggings is SUPER COMFORTABLE.  I feel like I am wearing my pajamas.  I reach for these when I need to feel comfy but look put-together.  They are cute with a pair of flats or sandals, and great when tucked into a pair of knee high boots.  These leggings were true to size and I didn’t need to hem them which was an added bonus!

If I had to be picky and say one thing that I didn’t like about these leggings then I would point to the pockets.  I really need all my pockets – two in the front and two in the back.  With a toddler, I need places to put  my phone, keys, etc.  With these leggings there are only two functional pockets in the back with two faux ones in the front.   However, I can totally overlook this minor point given how comfortable and great these look!  I wouldn’t hesitate to add this into your denim collection.
