The Perfect Skinny Jean

I've tried them all. I'm a jean fiend. I've bought and worn everything from True Religions to Citizens, Rock & Republic to Joe's. Two months ago, I went and splurged on a pair of jeans from Nordstrom by a new brand I'd never heard of before: Rich & Skinny. The fit is extra skinny and flattering (tip: feel free to size down because they do stretch out a bit), but it's the luxe details that really sweeten the deal-- silk lining along the waistband, signature 'R' embroidery on the back pocket, the smooth supersoft fabric. Rich & Skinny was founded by Michael Glasser, who also co-founded 7 For All Mankind and Citizens of Humanity, and Joie Rucker, founder of Joie (a brand I love). You don't have to be rich or skinny to purchase a pair. The jeans I bought were priced at $189, but I wear them so often they are definitely worth every penny. And the jeans disguise problem areas so well that you won't complain about the price!

Rich & Skinny Sleek Straight Leg Stretch Jeans, $216

Rich & Skinny Godiva Skinny Leg, $180

Rich & Skinny Sleek in Motley Blue, $189

Rich & Skinny Sleek in Ramone Red, $189

Rich & Skinny Sleek in Midnight, $189
This is the pair that I own. It's the most sensible shade, but now I want to start saving up for the fun colors they have, like Emerald, Carmine, Chai, Aquavida, Black Snakey, Curry, Marine Blue, Sari Pink, Saddle, Optic White, and more.

If you have a Nordstrom near you that sells Rich & Skinny, go ahead and try them on. I guarantee you'll love the slimming silhouette. And you'll never be able to return to True Religions or Citizens after slipping into the soft denim fabric of Rich & Skinny! Certain styles of the jeans are discounted on several websites, so keep checking for a good deal.
