Those who know me know two things: 1.) that I am not usually all that psyched about wearing super skinny jeans (I prefer a straighter fit), and 2.) that I love Gap (I used to work there!). Which is to say that these – a pair of slim straights from the megabrand’s new Resolution Denim collection – were something I had to try.

Resolution Denim, btw, is the high-tech fabrication that Gap introduced just a few weeks ago. It stretches, supports, and bounces back beautifully. It also makes jeans that are like these – Saran wrap-tight everywhere but around the ankles (on me, anyways) – feel pretty darn comfortable. And flattering. I mean, here’s my butt shot (never-before-seen on Jean Stories, actually), and I’m feeling pretty good about it, thank you!

I know, the word on the street is that skinnier styles are over, but I’ve been wearing these a lot lately, and that’s because they work. They work with the ankle boots I like to wear in the wintertime, and with every sweater I love right now (oh yeah, did I mention that the mid-rise on these accommodates tops short and not?), and with all the colors in my closet (unwashed indigo really does go with everything). They work like I do, which is pretty much non-stop, and which is why I reach for them constantly. Because there is nothing better than feeling like your jeans are on your team.
