Good Fit, Light Weight

I like these BlankNYC Classique Faded Skinny jeans a lot. I've been a BlankNYC fan for quite few years, and these have all the great things about the fit, except the rise may be a little bit higher. That's fine. The legs are skinny, but not legging skinny. I'm not a big fan of whiskering and sanding, but I love the fit so much, I'll deal. They stretch a lot so get them snug. Most BlankNYC I have are 98% cotton/2% Spandex, but these are 88% cotton/12% spandex. That means, they will hold their shape and give more than the higher cotton count ones, but may be warmer than the others in summer. The size runs the same as other BlankNYC pants. I am 5'3", have generous hips, not a skinny or a big waist, and legs that are slim in proportion to the rest of my body. I am also "short-waisted." These pants flatter my shape. I really hate jeans in the summer but these are light enough for me to handle. Because of the sanding and fading, I do not consider them dressy jeans, but they are a way to look put together, albeit very casually.
