This week our Tried & Tested review is all about the Current/Elliott Stiletto Skinny in Red Rose. You maybe familiar with this jean as we have reported on Celeb Style Watch how Katie Holmes wears hers. It’s a covertable style but lets get to the nitty-gritty and see how it scores for function & fashion.
Sam wears Elizabeth & James Tokyo Jim Blazer – Shell £355, Fresh Laundry Pocket T-Shirt – Caribe £75.00 and Current/Elliott Stiletto Skinny in Red Rose all available at Donnaida.com.
The Fit: The Current/Elliott Stiletto Skinny is a floral printed jean. They are slim fitting, true to size and have a mid-rise with a slightly shorter inseam of 27″. Perfect Summer jeans. The Stiletto is coming up a little small but it will stretch out so stick to your normal size. Sizes start at 24 -30, that’s a Uk 4 -12.
The Rise: 8 inchs a mid-rise jean, as the size moves up so does the rise measurement. Back Rise: 11 inches.
The Behind: Neatly placed pockets give the bottom a nice shape. The yoke (top section under the waistband) could be shaped a bit more which will give the bottom a heart shape.
The Leg Opening: 10 inches, a true skinny
Leg Length: 27 inches.
The Fabric: 98% Cotton 2% Elastane, like all jeans they initially start of snug but then loosen up.
Function: The Stiletto skinny is Current/ Elliott’s best selling jean for over two seasons now. Each season they offer must-have prints which fit well with the shape and style of the Stiletto. This season red rose print is an ‘English Rose’ print that’s perfect for the floral trend that’s big both on the catwalk and high street. The beauty of the Stiletto is if you like the shape & fit then your going to have a plethora of prints to choose from.
Which Body Shape? Ok this is an interesting one as I would normally suggest curvacious ladies to stay away from such a skinny leg as it can tend to exaggerate hips but because the Stiletto is a crop jean it actually tricks the eye and balances out the hips! So the following body shapes can enjoy the Stiletto skinny, Hourglass, Pear, Petite, Long & Leggy and Apple ( be sure the rise is high enough for you!)
The Round Up Of The Stiletto Skinny Jean In Red Rose.
As a true denim lover i’m loving all the prints Current/Elliott’s releasing in the Stiletto, it’s a clever move to take a best-selling shape and then update with prints and brights each season. However for me as the token ‘Apple‘ the shape just misses the mark. The back rise, is an inch too short and I wish the front rise was at least a half an inch higher. That’s my only gripe, honest!
So my last word on the Stiletto is, try it, if it works for you go forth and conquer.
The price £195, which is the starting price for the Current/ Elliott Stiletto Skinny.
Tried & Tested Score: 8.5
