I am thrilled that I now have a go-to store for my denim purchases – American Eagle Outfitters.

Out of the 9 pairs that I tried, 8 fit almost perfectly. Alas! I wish could pick them all. I had to pick one. On my list of an urgently needed pair (yes urgently!) has been dark skinnies for a while now, so that made the choosing process a bit easier.

So, I bought the Super Stretch Skinny in dark navy. The best part about it is that it cuts off at the ankle just where I would like it to. No alterations required. The length is a size R (regular). Every time I buy a pair of new denims, I have to visit the tailor to get the length chopped off a bit. Not this time.

Most women – who love their denims – know what it is like to find that pair, that pair which fits like a glove. And when we do, the euphoria that surrounds us is sometimes indescribable, right?

Some things worth noting about ‘the skinny.’

– If they give you Tummy cleavage aka muffin top syndrome (when your tummy spills over while seated), they are the wrong pair. Time to stop wearing them.

– Color or shading optical illusions – Darker shades around the areas you do not want to attract attention to and lighter shades around the ones you do. What we mean by this is, for example, you don’t want to highlight your rear. Go for a pair that darkens at the posterior. Maybe you want to highlight your thighs. Most dark denims are whitewashed in that area. Pick that one.

– Its worthwhile to look for a pair that has at least 10 percent elastane in them (the rest being Cotton or Polyester) for the desired and comfortable amount of stretch.

Thank you AE Outfitters for my new pair of denims. I am loving it!

American Eagle Outfitters is located at The Dubai Mall.
