Do you know where the worse place is to find out that your jeans have little give and pinch in all the wrong places? About 30,000 feet in the air halfway through an eight-hour international flight. But still, we'll argue that skinny jeans can be an ideal part of your travel uniform because they look put-together and feel comfortable all at once. At least, the right pairs are, and this is what inspired our latest dive down tons of shopper reviews of skinny jeans.
Below we curated 20 of the best-reviewed pairs of skinny jeans from across the web that are praised for their softness, comfort, and ability to stretch without stretching out (hey, you'd like to wear those jeans off the plane, don't you?). Scroll on for the pairs that stood out to us most and to make shopping for a new on-the-fly uniform a bit easier.
1. Current/Elliott The High-Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans
What the reviews say: "Tried out so many black skinny jeans already, but this has been thus far the best in terms of size and comfort. It can feel slightly lighter than a pair of jeans, but it is of stretch materials, so you can't expect denim material."
"So stretchy and so comfortable wear, even in an airplane! Absolutely recommend!"
Available in sizes 24 to 32.
1. 7 for All Mankind High-Waist Slim Illusion Skinny With Contour Waistband Jean
What the reviews say: "Just got these pants yesterday, and I already love them. They are super comfortable, have a good amount of stretch to them, and are extremely soft (and made with very durable material)."
Available in sizes 23 to 32.
2. Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. Gold Label Totally Shaping Skinny Jean
What the reviews say: "The leg and butt area are super-comfortable and really flattering no matter what your body type, and frankly, they've changed my mind about skinny jeans and flexible jeans in general. These are almost as comfortable as my standard, thin, barely there leggings."
"These are so comfortable and have just enough structure to feel confident."
What the reviews say: "Truly the best jeans I've ever bought. They fit perfect and are so comfortable! They're soft and stretchy kind of like jeggings but don't have that super-tight jegging look."
"These jeans are so cute and fit like a glove. I was a bit worried at first since they felt a bit tight, but don't worry, as they'll stretch out to be true to size within an hour or two of wearing. Love the slightly lower waistline for a more casual look—definitely recommend!"
What the reviews say: "These are the best jeans I have ever put on my body. They hold their shape (even after two days of wear) while still being extremely comfortable. I purchased them about a month ago and wear them virtually every day."
What the reviews say: "After about three wears, this pair stretches out a tiny bit, but they maintain their shape and hug my hips perfectly with a perfect high rise up to my belly button."
"These jeans have the perfect amount of stretch! They are sturdy but flexible enough to move with you. Nonstretch denim usually doesn't work for someone like me (thighs at least one size larger than my waist), but these fit perfectly at every point from my waist to my ankles."
What the reviews say: "Put them on. Fit me perfectly and haven't taken them off since (okay, except to sleep)."
"They are the perfect amount of stretch, and the fit is amazing! They are super comfortable, fit perfectly, and are sexy all at the same time. Definitely the perfect stretch black denim essential for your wardrobe."
