I, for one, think this is genius. I'm a huge fan of leggings (done in a tasteful way - no short shirts, please) and to combine them with the more tailored look of denim completely works. Rashida Jones was just spotted wearing the Avedon Slick Super-Stretch in the Ever wash (aka: a very dark, rich blue indigo). Love them! (Tip: This style has 40-percent stretchability (comfy), so when you're ordering, try to order a size down!)
They pass the $150 mark, but I'm serious when I say Citizens fit like a glove. The Kelly jean, a bootcut, was my very first pair of designer jeans and I wore them until they frayed at the bottom so bad I knew it was time to invest again. And invest I did! Since then, my closet's been full of high-waisted, boot-cut, skinny, and hopefully postpartum, this new legging. (Ok, that was my laaast piece of Halloween candy, I promise!)
So sleek and so chic, wear them with a blazer like Rashida did or pair it with a cool leather jacket (loving gray!). Don't forget your heels, whether they're booties (see how she cuffs her jeans here? that's my fav trick!) or knee high boots. Girl, you're bound to set the town on fi-re.
P.S. Snag these here at Bloomingdales.com - they even have stirrups. Giddy-up!
