Week One – Dark Wash Skinny Jeans

There is possibly nothing more universally flattering on every woman than a perfect fitting pair of dark wash skinny jeans with some stretch.  They are slimming, forgiving and seem to hold everything in place just right.  I literally live in mine.  Every woman needs to have a pair of these in her wardrobe arsenal!

I REALLY hesitated to make all of the $20 and under jean inspirations from Forever 21 but then I caved.  After all, I have a whole closet full of their dark wash skinny jeans so I’m a believer.  And they fit the $20 and under budget so perfectly, some are only $10 a pair!  No, they aren’t the highest quality jeans on the market but they are pretty darn well made for the price.  They keep their color wash after wash, never stretch out and are true to fit which is more than I can say for some premium denim (I won’t name any names).  I also love the rise, not too high, not too low (no butt cleavage!). Forever 21 offers a wide variety of fits from petite to plus size, high waisted to classic fit.  There’s something to fit every body type.  The jeans below range in price from $10-$20. 

Skinny Jeans for Every Body

High Waisted – $20/Alison’s Fave – $10.80/Classic Fit – $10.80/Plus Size – $13.50/Petite – $10.80

If you happen to pick up a pair of these this week, tell me about it!  I can’t wait to see all of your Payday Pretty finds. OH, one more thing before I go, I’ll be drawing 25 winnners for my Firmoo eyewear giveaway on Monday.  It’s a low entry giveaway so if you haven’t entered yet, you still have time to do it here! a Rafflecopter giveaway

Stay pretty, my friends!
