On Trial: Wet look skinny jeans


I’ve tried to ignore them, but they’re just not going away, and when a mainstream store like Dorothy Perkins starts stocking them, you know the situation’s getting pretty serious…

By "They", I am, of course referring to wet look/metallic skinny jeans. They were a big look on the catwalks not so long ago, but are they wearing them in your home town? Are you wearing them yourself, even? I know I’m not, and I have absolutely no intention of ever wearing them, because while I can see that the black ones just might work under a chiffon dress, or longline sweater, I’m afraid I just can’t think of a single situation in my life where a pair of gold skinny jeans would start to kook like suitable attire to me. Can you?

    Gold skinny jeans? Yes, I so can. With a black shirt and black boots and gold jewelry.

    The problem with shiny looking pants is that they make you look fat. these may not be totally shiny…but it’s something to consider…

    I definitely can! I have a cute black shirt with gold accents that would go perfect with these skinny jeans. I plan to match them the outfit with some classic black pumps and gold jewelry!
