Review: Ann Taylor Modern Fit Skinny Jeans

I have been on the hunt for a new pair of dark wash skinny jeans to tuck into my boots. In the past, I found success with Gap's 1969 jeans, but my body is different post-baby, so my old go-to is now a no-go. 



I tried on jeans from several stores before I ended up at Ann Taylor on Cyber Monday, when everything was 50% off. As it turned out, their Modern Fit Skinny jean in 0P fits me really well. I was shocked and very pleased, because now I have jeans to wear with boots all winter! I was beginning to worry, since I no longer had every day skinny jeans, only thinner legging jeans that are not nearly warm enough in cold weather. What a relief!


I like them with heels too. Perfect to dress up or down.

Pros:
Dark wash thins and elongates legs
Material is 2% Spandex, which yields a very comfortable, stretchy fit
High enough rise to cover my curvy posterior when seated - without gapping

Cons:
A bit expensive at full price (for me) - $88, but well worth it when on sale
about 2 inches too long (I folded them under for the pictures but will hem later)

I guess I should have known that AT would make exactly what I needed...
