Where can I get brilliant black skinny jeans from?

Need to fit a shortarse.
Nice and black and keep colour well.
Not go baggy.
Cost less than £60.
The M&S jeggings are now failing me. I still love the pale wash blue ones, but the black ones now fade within weeks and go baggy within a few hours of wear.

Please help! smile

I have a pair of black skinnies from M&S that I have found meet your criteria. They are from the Autograph range and I really like them.

I just looked at the label and have no idea if they are jeggings and therefore the ones that have failed you already.

Oh and I'm about 5'3 and bought the short ones for a 7/8ths look.

Thanks, Thursday.

Will have a look at the Autograph ones. Can I ask how often-ish you've washed them so far, and what the colour is like now?

Just seen these too, which I like the look of, although whoever styled them needs shooting.

Dying to know if anyone has any ideas for this. I bought the M&S black jeggings and they're now grey ffs. They look ridiculous they're so faded.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 03-May-15 17:35:09

They were good when they first came out, but now rubbish. The pale ones are absolutely brilliant still though.

I got a great pair from Tesco. They never go baggy, are still black after several washes and they stay up.

I've just bought a pair of black super skinny high waisted jeans from New Look for £22.99 - haven't washed them yet but I'm already in love with them because they're awesome at squashing my mum tum in and super tight on my legs and bum. But bloody hell, I can't breathe after eating my roast in them grin

Topshop Joni. Or the old Jamie, haven't tried the new ones.
The Dorothy Perkins one lose colour and are a poor fit on me (I am long "hipped") and go baggy.

Haven't tried new look or primark.

I am careful to wash only with other black clothes, and not too often, inside out etc.

I love the New Look ones too. Good colour and very skinny. I like Gap Always skiny or whatever they call them now. They last years.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 03-May-15 17:57:35

I tried some on in DP but they were v thin and too long. I have some khaki TS Jamie ones but they are too big on the waist and slip down a lot. Will have a look in Gap and New Look.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 03-May-15 17:58:54

I like the look of the Joni ones - will deffo try those.

mewkins Sun 03-May-15 18:16:35

Gap sizing is odd so order a few different sizes.

HelenF350 Sun 03-May-15 18:25:05

Sainsburys jeans are brilliant.

ThursdayLast Sun 03-May-15 18:47:23

I've had them for two months - I've probably washed them five times, usually after 4/5 days wear each time IYSWIM. Still v black.

I find top shop jeans do not wear well, and the zips always fail me on new look ones confused

OftheTwilighttheDarkness Sun 03-May-15 18:52:00

I was going to say New Look, Dd wears them to school so they get washed lots. The ones she has have kept their colour well.

dingit Sun 03-May-15 18:53:15

Dorothy perkins. And their Eden jeggings are fab too

PurpleDancingTurtle Sun 03-May-15 19:02:11

topshop leigh are very good I've got normal and maternity and love them.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 03-May-15 19:06:07

Just read reviews on Topshop site, and they say the colour fades really quickly.

Will investigate the Autograph ones.

Therapy from House Of Fraser. Just bought a second pair yesterday as they were 40% off grin

Paddingtonthebear Sun 03-May-15 19:12:49

DOrothy Perkins super skinny Bailey jeans from the petite section are great on my 28 inch long legs and hold their shape really well, good stretchy material and they are a tight fit. Not the thin jegging ones they do, they are crap

thetroubleis Sun 03-May-15 19:15:33

Hold on to your hats, Asda super fit skinnies in jet black are brilliant. Have had a pair for a year and they haven't bagged at all. They are quite faded but to be honest I have lived in them and they have been through the wash with stain remover and the like. Try a pair on and see what you reckon, you can't go wrong for £18!

FrownsAndDimples Sun 03-May-15 19:46:14

dp edens for me

Chunkymonkey79 Sun 03-May-15 19:56:33

Topshop, all different leg and and waist sizes. Loads of choices of styles and colours. About £40.

Just need to be sure to wash them alone the first couple of times as the colour runs!

BlueEyedWonder Sun 03-May-15 20:04:35

In terms of fit for those of is not blessed with height, I say Topshop Jamie jeans. Mine have lost a little colour with washing but they're nowhere near grey.
