J Brand 620 Super Skinny Jeans in Lavish

We’ve had a serious heat wave out where I am, so the thought of wearing skinny jeans right now is as appealing as eating saltine crackers on a deserted desert.  That is, until I encountered these…J Brand 620 Super Skinny Jeans.

Since the whole colored denim trend emerged a couple of years ago, I have worn just about every shade of purple and burgundy on the color spectrum.  So I wasn’t sure if another pair of somewhat purplish colored pair of jeans was going to get me excited.  I was very wrong.  I absolutely loved the color on these the moment I saw them in person.  The wash is called Lavish, which Iooks like a burgundy color at first glance.  But when I wore them out into the sunlight, I could see more hints of purple, making these more of a bourdeaux wine color.  The color is gorgeous!

The cut is very slim fitting.  They’re body hugging from the hips all the way down to the ankles, clinging to every part of the leg.  The material is made of 70% tencel, 28% cotton, and 2% elastane, which is an extremely soft material with a tremendous amount of stretch.  In fact, they feel like stretchy cotton pants.  They’re crazy comfortable, and surprisingly light-weight.  There is something cool about the material that doesn’t leave your legs feeling like they will suffocate from the heat.  They are airy and light, and did I mention they’re super comfortable?

The inseam is 30 inches, which bunches slightly at the ankles on me.  So I decided to roll them up for a cropped look instead.  The rise is 7 ½ inches.  Leg opening is 9 ½ inches.  As I mentioned these are super form fitting, but they run a little on the looser side.  If you go with your normal size, they’ll probably look fine since the stretch in the material just clings to the leg automatically.  But on the same note, because of the amount of stretch, you might be able to take a size down.

Washing instructions are:  Wash in cold water with like colors, do not bleach, tumble dry low, remove promptly, warm iron if necessary.
