Review and Giveaway:: SkinnyJeans' SkinnyP and Team Colors

 Thursday, August 2, 2012

I cannot believe its already August and I have just about a month to get myself ready to go back to college in the fall. Ive stopped buying new summer clothes and am now focused on building my wardrobe for the fall and early winter. One staple in my closet that I was lacking was collection of jeans. It seems that my jeans last a few years so I dont buy them yearly. This year I definitely needed to throw out a few pairs and buy some new ones. 

When buying jeans I usually have quite the dilemma. Proportion wise I fit better in regular jeans but height wise I really need the petite denim. Its hard because I really do look good in my designer denim but I have to spend an extra $10-15 shortening each pair.


SkinnyJeans is a company that is dedicated to making Jeans that are flattering and slimming. There slogan is: "Jeans that make you look slimmer." Well Ive tried many jeans that promise results and havent liked them all but decided to give SkinnyJeans a try.

I ended up choosing a pair of the Skinny P Petite bootcut. I was hoping that they were going to fit a bit more like designer jeans a bit less like the petite jeans. At a price tag of $178 they certainly are marketed like a pair of designer jeans. The Skinny P Petite denim comes in inseams of 29-33". Designer jeans usually have an inseam of 34" for refrence. At my short height my inseam is 30" so I ordered that length.



I really like them! I think for a design aesthetic they look like a run of the mill kind of jean. They are dark wash- which I like- and are airbrushed just enough to elongate your legs. The back pockets are a little plain for my taste but I understand that the goal is to make it flattering and the plain pockets are definitely that. I always love when the stitching is a different color because it does make you look longer down the leg and these have a yellow color thread. I love the little hello! on the inside of the jeans its such a cute added detail.

A really bad picture of me modeling the jeans!

As far as fit, they fit great! The SkinnyJean material is strong and really stretchy. They hug my curves in the right places and the length is perfect.


Its very important to find a good pair of jeans, especially when colored jeans are so fashionable this summer and for fall. Colored denim could either look fabulous or awful depending on the fit. That's why I am very excited to give one of my The Preppy Student followers a chance to win a pair of SkinnyJeans Team Colors denim! Since I could not love my jeans any more I know a pair of the Team Colors line will fit you amazing. 


Team Colors is SkinnyJeans' new line of colored denim. The line is made up of so many lovely colored denim. Personally I am in love with the dark orange and medium red. The fit of SkinnyJeans denim is so great that you will not be able to find a pair of colored jeans that is as slimming as the Team Colors.

Colored jeans are so in right now. Everyone from Kate Middleton to Sarah Jessica Parker has been wearing a pair and you have a chance to win the most flattering cut!

If I had to choose a color other than the Team Colors I would definitely say the Skinny P's. I'm short so its hard for me to find pants that fit correctly in length! They are super cute and I'd love a pair in my wardrobe!

Thanks for heading over to my blog and leaving such a nice comment!
I'm definitely following now :)

You're so amazing!
Having like a bajillion giveaways going on at once? I love it!
The girl inside of me who loves free stuff is dying a little bit.
Ahahahahaha :)

The Team Color jeans are so gorgeous!
I don't own any non-blue jeans so I would love to get a pair in a fun color!
If I were to win, I think I would either have to pick the Metallic Silver or the gorgeous Turquoise!
Those are two of my favorite colors :)

Other than the lovely Team Color jeans, I'm really liking the Barely BootCut. I'm always looking for a pair of skinny bootcut jeans and these might just be the perfect ones!


Have a lovely day darling!
Best of luck to everyone who enters this giveaway (and your other ones)!! <3
