Style'n tips: Get the Skinny

When it comes to jeans I am a big fan of investing in high quality and comfortable ones.
The J Brand 901 Legging (seen here on Kate Beckinsale)  is an ultra light weight denim legging and is a must have and staple item.  I literally wear mine all the time!


I also love the Citizen of Humanity Avedon Slick Skinny Legging Jeans. (as seen on Rachel Bilson) I love these so much I have a pair in dark blue denim and black.  (See, I told you when I love something I end up buying two of them. )  These jeans are truly top quality and super comfortable.


But I have to say that I just discovered these C & C California stretch denim leggings and I am a huge fan.  These have the comfy fit of leggings with the detailing of jeans.
I got a pair in Midnight blue (as seen below )but some of the other colors are on sale right now.  I  thought I would share a few additional pictures taken from our first day in Nantucket.  We took so many pictures so I will probably end up posting more later in the week.  We had a beautiful and relaxing Anniversary weekend and thank goodness I did not end up needing my trench or rain boots.

These are all very cute. Need to lose a few pounds first for me to get a leg in!

Torrie said...

Great pictures Naina!! You look beautiful and it looks like the weather was perfect after all:).

I totally agree with you on having high quality & comfortable jeans.

? for you- Per Kris' comment above, I am going to work really hard the next month getting back into the shape that I need to be in to be comfortable in these type of jeans. In the meantime- if you aren't particularly comfortable wearing them w/ a shorter top- but do love the look w/ boots/etc... how would you recommend wearing them (a longer shirt/sweater?)? Or would you recommend holding off on this type of pant (until you're more comfortable wearing w/ a shorter top)?

I also tend to splurge a bit more on jeans than I do on other items. I can justify it since I end it up in jeans for pretty much 7-8 months of the year because it is so darn cold here! You look great and I will definitely have to check out those C&C jeggings.

Katie said...

You look great!

bollywoodstylediaries said...

I love, love Kate Beckinsale - find her style really classy and chic!! and she totally rocked in "Underworld"!!

The weather looks really gorgeous in Nantucket - I am so happy it didnt rain and you guys had a blast. Looking forward to more pics!!

I love skinnies - I dont have one in black so will def. check out the the C&C ones..

Valerie said...

I do love J Brand, but I actually haven't tried any of their leggings! I always love your outfits, you look so effortless and chic, Naina. Hope you had a great long weekend!

Lisa Griffin said...

I saw these J Brand jeans and wasn't sure if they were worth the price, I have never jumped on the expensive jean band wagon, I may now have to reconsider! These leggings are great! Beautiful pictures :)

Babe, can you please do me a favor? Please send me.. The purse and the watch?

Seriously though, I don't have a pair of these but would really love one! I'm afraid they won't look greet on me. I tried actual skinny jeans at BR and the Gap, no go!

Love Kate's, Rachel's and yours!

Jammer said...

I just got my first pair of "splurge" jeans and I think they were honestly worth every penny! The fit is sooo much better and they actually held their shape throughout the night! I may even start thinking about a pair of jean leggins...

Marissa said...

The J Brands are my favorite, too, but I did find a surprisingly great pair at H&M this year!

It looks like you had beautiful weather. And those leggings look awesome. I have such a hard time finding the right jeans, never mind leggings. I'll give your suggestions a try though.

Deliciously Organized said...

I love skinny jeans. Always nice if they have a bit of a stretch. You look adorable in your photographs. Looks like you had a nice time!

style-haus said...

skinny jeans and "jeggings" are also staples in my closet. perfect for those occasions when you need to throw on something and get out the door. the white loose fitting top is paired perfectly with your skinnies.
