There’s nothing that quite says “buy me now” like an item of clothing that sells out within 24 hours of release. Case in point: J Brand x Stephanie Shepherd’s Little Black Jeans, which launched in back in June and, within 19 hours, saw all stock snapped up by eager customers. Proving the timeless appeal of black skinny jeans, J Brand’s sellout look was widely embraced by the fashion crowd and photographed on everyone from Aimee Song to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. No wonder the style didn’t stick around for long.
Due to popular demand, the jeans have finally been restocked, so to celebrate, I decided to try on the look for myself. The consensus? Despite not being much of a skinny-jean wearer, I actually loved this J Brand pair. It sits at a flattering point on the waist (just above the hips), and I really enjoyed the lace-up detail, especially when paired with this ’70s-style blouse from Rixo. They just might make me a skinny-jean convert, and that’s no mean feat. Scroll down to shop the look.
