Just when I thought I’d be slowing down on my purchases of dark denim with summer approaching, I came across these and had to have them. These are Frankie B Penelope Flirt F Skinny Jeans. I found a few ways to justify purchasing these jeans in spite of the warm weather ahead.
For one, the material is very light weight. Made of 52% cotton, 26% rayon, 21% polyester, 1% spandex, the denim is fairly thin and light-weight which makes them perfectly wearable through the warmer seasons. The material has a lot of stretch. So although initially they felt fairly snug, they do stretch out quite a bit after some wear. I love the amount of stretch on most Frankie B jeans. They’re made with a certain amount of elasticity that makes for very comfortable denim. These run true to size.
These have a very skinny fit. They’re tight throughout the thighs and calves and have a tiny 9 inch leg opening. Luckily there are 11 ½ inch long zipper openings on the back of each leg, allowing for an easier leg entrance. These are an ultra low rise as Frankie B has always been known for. The rise measurement is 6 ¾ inches. They’re a classic five pocket style. The rear pockets are placed lower to allow for a rear-lifting illusion. I have always felt that Frankie B has mastered the art of flattering rear pockets and has yet to be beat in this department. The inseam is 29 inches.
The color is called Raw which is a deep dark blue wash with no fading. There’s a copper colored contrast stitch that stands out nicely against the dark blue. The color is a great color to wear well into the fall and winter seasons as well. And the skinny style allows for a lot of outfit options. Dark skinny jeans are one of the most versatile style jeans in my opinion. They can be worn casually during the day and can be dressed up just as easily for the evening. So if you’re looking for a pair of jeans to really stretch your dollar, these would be a great pair to try.
Washing instructions are: dry clean or machine wash cold inside out, do not bleach, tumble dry warm, warm iron if needed.
