Tried & Tested Levi’s® 721 High Rise Skinny

I’m excited to review these Levi’s® 721™ High Rise Skinny Jeans WATER<LESS® which is made with Water<Less® technology – Uses 96% less water than standard finishing techniques.

Sam’s Review:

It’s been too long since my last (confession) Tried & Tested and I really don’t know why? Watch my review below.


Tried & Tested Levi’s® 721 High Rise Skinny

The Fit:

The 721™ style is Figure-holding, high-waisted jeans with a skinny leg. It wears slim through the hip and thigh. Levis uses the 721 for a basic shape that comes in a plethora of washes and finishes. But the basic shape is the same.

This style has added extra’s which really appeals to my sense of style. It has an exposed button fly and seams going down the front of the legs. I really like this combination – tell you why below!

This style the sizing starts at 23 to 32 (other 721’s come in extended sizes and different leg lengths)


The Behind:

So the back of this jean is an unexpected one as the yoke under the waistband has extra seams to lift the bottom. The pockets have the standard Levis® pockets but the belt loops extend past the waistband. And of course the iconic leather patch at back waist.

The Leg Opening:

Leg opening: 10.5″ which is a skinny jean, this style has a small vent at the side seam which will look great over boots in the Autumn.


The Leg Length:

 Inseam: 27″.

The Fabric:

94% Cotton, 4% Polyester, 2% Elastane, mid-stretch denim. Made with Water<Less® technology, which is a finishing procedure that uses less water.

OUR GOAL: BY 2021, 80% OF LEVIS® JEANS WILL BE MADE WITH WATER<LESS® TECHNIQUES.


Which Body Shape:

Apple, Petite


The Round-Up:

So my excitement about these jeans is that they’re great for Apple body shape, which is a rare occurrence! The rise is about as high I can wear but the open fly actually disguises a fuller tummy area. The seams on the front of the leg is also an Apple’s best friend as it slims and elongates the leg! Levis calls the 721 ‘The ultimate waist-defining fit’. The 27″ inseam is also a plus for Petite women.

This is quite a personal style for me as it has all the elements I have been looking for in a jean.

This 721 style also comes in white too which I think will work really well all year round!
