Denim Review: Frankie B. My BFF Legging With Lace

For this weeks denim review I decided to do Frankie B. My BFF Denim Leggings With Lace in Black Fusion. These jeans have the classic Frankie B. fit; very flattering on the butt and low rise. They are very very stretchy, just like real leggings and made of lightweight denim. They have lace/mesh all the way down the front of the legs which you can see in the detailed close ups. The lace is held in place with stitching around the holes. I think they are very pretty and make an interesting jean. I really like the way these leggings look, they are perfect for dressing up with heels and going out to dinner. I definitely recommend them if you are looking for a different style jean. They have a 7″ rise and about a 31″ inseam. The only thing that upsets me a bit is I have super sensitive skin so the lace can feel a bit itchy on my thighs but that’s the issue you get with a lot of fabrics if you have sensitive skin like me, other than that issue the jeans are wonderful and very pretty! Buy these jeans at Frankie B. for $171.

Overall Opinion
These jeans are very classy, great for dressing up and wearing to the more smarter dinners but they are so versatile they would look very cute with some flats and a tunic. Definitely a must buy!

Close up angle of the lace/mesh on the thigh; you can see the stitching holding it in place.

Close up modeled photo of them modeled on the thighs. The jeans stretch out over your legs which shows more and more of the lace so the tighter the jeans, the more lace will be on show (like the stock photo at the top).

  1. We need a side shot to see if they make the ass disappear like most R&R denim =P otherwise I think they look great.

  2. Love Frankie B’s but they are the kind of jeans you can’t bend over in! too low for me 🙁 its a shame bc these look soo hot! wonder if other brands will be introducing the built in lace look?

  3. i love frankie b! they are sooo hot. yeah, they are low (and my butt crack shows 🙂 sometimes) but who cares. they look so good. the newer styles have higher rises, which kinda sucks. i wish they stuck with old style kept the rise (front and back) low low LOW

  4. HI! I just ordered a pair of these jeans, but they haven’t arrived yet. I’ve been looking everywhere for a pair of distressed black Frankie B. skinnies but had no luck, so I got these instead. Do you think I would be able to remove the lace from the jeans without damaging it? THANKS!

  5. Hi Tammy, the lace is actually stitched in and you can see the stitching around the edges of the holes in the jeans, I don’t think it would work, plus then you would have gaps, like holes, in the jeans because there is no thread. Have you tried a pair of grey ones with distressing?
