The change in the weather has given me the perfect excuse to shop for cool weather clothes! As if I needed an excuse -ha! Let’s just say I’ve been shopping A LOT- specifically for the perfect pair of jeans. Not an easy task, as you know. Well, I found my perfect pair, my friend found her perfect pair, and my sister found a pair that I wish they’ll soon make a tall version of for me! So here we go!
(I’m starting with the best!)- If I was looking for one pair of black jeans for the season (I’m not, because I still have and love these), these are the ones I’d buy. I’ve told a few friends about them after putting another friend in them. They are super comfy (it feels like you’re wearing leggings)! Oh, and they are by Madewell, so they’re great quality and a great price!

If I was looking for a pair of high-rise bootcut jeans because I was tired of skinny jeans and looking for variety (hahaha! Can you hear my inner thoughts?), this pair is awesome…
Pilcro High-waist Bootcut Jeans– I’m thinking these would look super cute with booties and flats!
If I was shorter (I’m 5′ 8″) and wanted a dressier black jean that wasn’t coated denim, I’d buy these….
7 FOR ALL MANKIND Metallic Ankle Skinny Jeans– They have a little bit of metallic to them! I’m wearing the color gunmetal, and they’re true to size. Sweater- Sèzane
And now for the coated denim:
I don’t know what it is, but I’m majorly into coated denim this season. Since it’s turned cold, I keep reaching for my favorite pair of coated denim that I’ve had for years! Then I tried on a pair of leather pants, and wooooweeee, I had the very worst case of wants! But, I was not up for splurging on leather pants. That’s when I tried on a pair of coated denim, and my friend said they looked like the leather pants!! Check them out…
AG Leatherette legging ankle– Now I’m doubly in on coated denim! The look of leather for less! If I was tall and wanted a pair of coated denim that was long enough and were super shiny that they almost looked like leather, I’d buy these in black and navy. Ok, so I did! Ha! I’m wearing navy in this picture.
If I was a bit shorter (I’m 5′ 8″) and had a fabulous booty (like my sister in this pic), I would have purchased this dark grey pair of coated denim in a millisecond. I could see these with practically any color top, and I always love what a charcoal/dark grey color bottom does for an outfit. To me, grey bottoms add interest to any outfit. I’m on the look out for a similar pair for taller people (if you know of a pair, let me know!).
Frame Coated Skinny Jean– Argh, they are already sold out at Nordstrom, but I found them at SAKS (picture on Saks site is not a good representation)!
And if I was looking to dip my toe in the coated denim trend, I’d start with my very favorite pair that I’ve had for many years! I like this pair because they’re not to shiny, so you can wear them casually and not feel weird (like to fun errands). Plus, the Paige Verdugo is always a great fit on so many people!
Hi-Did you size down on the navy coated denim? The website says to & I just wondered if that was an accurate suggestion.
Carly Lee says
Hi Anya, I did not size down, but the size I buy is usually a size down. I know I need to have the jeans super tight, so they don’t bag out. I hope this makes sense. I’m basically saying I usually buy my jeans super tight, so I can’t size down. Clear as mud. Hahahaha!
It does make sense. I actually learned sizing down from you earlier this year & I do size down on AG denim, but I recently bought an AG “cord” (looks like velvet to me) and those fit tight at reg size, so why I asked about the coated. That was a long reply. 🧐 Regardless thank you for the input!
Carly Lee says
Ha! Ok, well in that case, order the size you normally do! How do you like your cords?
Ummmm Late reply! Sorry was deleting emails and saw this! I like the cords ok…that’s my honest opinion. For me I feel like they can only be worn with certain shoes…I think it is the cut at the very bottom. Because of that I tend to not grab them like I grab other black pants.

Thanks for responding and good to know!
