They may not be the most exciting thing in a closet, but a good pair of black skinny jeans is an indispensable wardrobe without which I can not imagine life. This has become much clearer to me lately when I got rid of my trusted pair of black skinnies that I had been wearing for years and which definitely had their heyday. It was not until this key piece was missing in my closet that I realized how important it was to invest in a new pair. (You really do not know anything good until it's gone, amirite?) I've got LA style at least, so I wear jeans almost every day, and a black, slim version was missing noticeably after just a few weeks.
Unfortunately, I embarked on the most daunting quest of all: denim shopping. Nothing gives me a headache like the glare of a fluorescent wardrobe lighting, but I wanted to make sure that I weighed all my options before choosing a new couple. Since virtually every brand under the sun makes a simple black skinny, I had lots Options to choose from. To save you all the same headaches (and the unflattering lighting of the dressing room), here are some tips on how to find the best black skinny jeans. I tried a total of 19 pairs between store and online orders, but there were only seven real winners, and I was 100% sure of replacing my old pair with a new one. The brands I did not like will be nameless, but the ones I like will get a huge reputation for a moment. Below are my seven Holy Grail couples and why I feel so strong for them. In addition, some poorly lit dressing room selfies for your entertainment.
