A slightly boring topic but, after ages searching, I found my perfect pair of black skinny jeans yesterday so thought I would share. these They are £85 but Whistles currently have 25% off with a Grazia voucher until 18th March making them £63.75. They are extremely stretchy, skinny all the way down to the ankle, a very dense black colour and very comfortable. They are reasonably high waisted (I am paranoid about the risk of showing underpants, or even worse a builder's bum with low rise jeans!). In my opinion they compare very well to the much more expensive premium denim brands I have tried/bought previously. Hope this helps someone else who has been searching!
Thanks for the tip! Always on the look out for good skinny jeans and need some black ones.
If anyone's interested, I shall throw in my recent discovery of Jack Wills Henlow skinny jeans. Ordered them in desperation the other day (I find it REALLY hard to get jeans that fit me) and they are great! Good quality, stretchy denim, cut not too low or high on the waist (no builder's bum issues) and a nice fit. £59.50 a pair so not a steal, but not too expensive either. I've got the worn indigo and am ordering the dark indigo too as they're so nice.
I tried on every pair of high st skinnies on Oxford St yesterday and came home with M and S 5 pocket jeggings as recommended on here. In 'Indigo mix'. They're ace!
So many skinnies are really thin material that do nothing for lumps and bumps. And I don't like the current crop of dark denim that's just slightly too light and mustard stitching, looks really cheap. Gap legging jeans were second best, followed by River Island Amelie - I might get the lighter colour denim Amelies for summer but was after dark ones this time.
Topshop Jamies looked good but again I didn't like the dark denim they did, and Leighs were really thin material though nice colours, liked the grey.
