Spotted: the Perfect Black Jeans

Oh the high-waisted black jean: universally flattering, timeless, versatile as hell. I had had my last pair for nearly 3 years before they succumbed to the chub rub, developing golf ball sized holes on both inner thighs on the same freaking day. Tragic really. I began the task of replacing them immediately, knowing I wouldn’t last a week without such an important wardrobe staple. I only had to look in one place: Reformation.

Reformation is a sustainable fashion powerhouse, one that until now I hadn’t been able to afford. $100 for a pair of jeans sounds crazy… until you remember your last pair lasted nearly three years! I also feel that it’s important to support companies that actually give a shit.

Enter: High and Skinny Jean in Black.

Here's what they look like on a size 29 me:

For reference, this is what they look like on their size 26 model:

Final thoughts:

I LOVE THESE JEANS. I wear them probably 3 days a week - so versatile, durable, and they fit BEAUTIFULLY. As you can see in the photo above, I chose to cuff these jeans. The ankles aren't as skinny as I had hoped, so I cuff them when wearing with certain shoes. Overall, I'm thrilled with this purchase. Only time will tell how they hold up to my excessive wearing as well as the chub rub!
