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.
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 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).

I saw this article about Denim Leggings, slating them and saying how horrible they are… It’s worth a read but I don’t think the person who is writing it has actually tried denim leggings properly. She is assuming they are so tight they cut off your circulation and are really bad for you. Most of us who own denim leggings, especially the premium brands, know that they are very very comfy and just like normal leggings, they are not some horrible, really really tight, devil jeans that you can’t breathe in. 7 For All Mankind, Paige Premium, Citizens of Humanity, Current/Elliott and so many other brands have super comfortable jeggings, you just have to try them to find that out. I was wondering what is your opinion on denim leggings? Do you find them comfy and really cute to go under your longer tops? Or do you dislike the way they look and feel? I’m actually glad they came out, I love skinnys but a lot of them were too tight and not very comfortable so making them like leggings was a life saver!I wear them all the time with longer tops and boots, flats or heels, they are very versatile.

Does anyone actually look good in jeggings? Rebecca Dana on the evil spawn of jeans and leggings. I can’t feel my legs.
We are now three seasons into the 21st century’s worst fashion trend, in which women suck, pull, and squeeze themselves into denim-colored sausage casings and then waddle around pretending they’re wearing blue jeans. Just looking at these tragic hybrid “pants” can cut off a person’s circulation. Actually putting on a pair is a clinically proven health hazard.
Yet the scourge of the “jeggings” persists.
They are everywhere: On Whitney Port, doe-eyed star of MTV’s The City; dip-dyed onto ubiquitous British model Agyness Deyn; bunched up on the floor of American Apparel fitting rooms; stretched like a helium balloon across the entire Jersey Shore. With a finger in each belt loop, they have even huffed and puffed and hauled their way up into the Oxford English Dictionary.
Two percent Lycra-spandex, at a minimum, and dyed to look just like 501s, with fake back pockets straining against even the slimmest rump and obscene little painted-on notches where the fly should be: They look good on precisely no one. But now, in 2010, after a year and a half in a recession, when we’re all supposed to be a little wiser and more sensible about our purchases, these horrible things are still flying off the shelves. Last summer, Women’s Wear Daily reported that such vaunted brands as Seven for All Mankind, BCBG, and, yes, even Levi’s were on the hunt for the latest “superstretchy denim” that will suction ever-tighter against women’s legs. Which means we have at least another season of acid-washed, faux-distressed, cotton-polyester leggings to come.
