I used to watch every single What Not To Wear episode I possibly could. I’d watch Stacey London and Clinton Kelly tell every woman who crossed their path “You want to look tall”, “Extend the leg-line”, “Lean and long”, etc.
Being 5’6″, curvier than calligraphy and semi-body conscious has led me to avoid a lot of clothing in my life that I now am finding out would have absolutely worked, worked, and worked.
Case in point? I didn’t wear/own a single pair of fitted jeans until I was 15 years old. 15! Now-a-days, girls are getting their first pair of boot-cut jeans at 7.
But I digress. I’ve come across the most amazing pair of jeans I’ve owned… ever. There’s no stretch, there’s no crazy embellishments, there’s also no designer label which keeps my debit card happy.
GAP Long & Lean Jeans – Crosshatch Rinsed Wash
The crosshatch rinsed wash is currently $58 $29.99 on Gap.com
These jeans… are heavenly. My ass looks amazing, they’re a bit too long, so I can wear them perfectly with ~3 inch heels… The wash is gorgeous and dark. I can honestly say… I actually look long & lean in these miracle jeans.
While I love the rinse I have, the other ones are too good to pass up, too!
Long & Lean Jeans – Authentic Tinted Vintage
$58 – not on sale yet, boo!
I love how casual and smooth the super faded rinse is… I’ll probably get those and have them altered and hemmed so I can wear flats with them. It’s a date!
