Look for Less: Coated Skinny Jeans


I have to thank my dear friend Leslie for inspiring today's post. During our usual Monday morning catch-up, we detailed our fall fashion wish lists. Leslie -- who is always stylishly dressed -- told me she was lusting for a pair of coated skinny jeans in oxblood. (You know, the color for fall.) We loved Helmut Lang's version (above, $230.00), and also Vila's take on the trend below (below, $59.61). 




Now it's time to ask...


S.S.W. Asks: Which pair would YOU pick?

Well, I would give the choice a miss as I look dreadful in skinny jeans ... although I would love to look great in them.

I do like the deeper color of the first pair, but would have a hard time paying so much for something so trendy. So I would go with the cheaper ones:) They are both really nice.

I do prefer the look of the Helmut Lang version...but I'd have to love them a whole whole lot, enough to guarantee I'd wear them long after they were off-trend, before I'd drop $230 on a pair of jeans!

Style She Wrote, I've been combing the internet for leads on great consignment shops in NYC, so I can invest in some classic, high-end pieces for (relatively) manageable prices. Are there any that you swear by?

These are so cool... I wish I was at least a couple of inches taller to sport this look... Haha!!!

I'd pick Vila's. They look very similar to Helmut Lang's version. Anyway - both have an amazing colour!
