When in doubt, I always turn to dark skinny jeans as my starting point for an outfit. Much like finding the perfect bathing suit, finding a pair of jeans that fit you well in all the right places is equally as challenging. Skinny jeans are great for showing off a nice pair of heels, wearing with cute ballet flats, or tucking into riding boots in the fall and winter. I’m all about cost-per-wear so i’m willing to spend more on a pair of jeans I can easily transition between seasons, as long as they have the right fit. The 7 For All Mankind jeans on the left have a dark-wash and a stretchy material that creates a slim and flattering silhouette. The jeans on the right from Forever 21 also have a 5-pocket configuration with a sleek look. Would you choose the more expensive or economical option?
