I credit yoonanimous.com for educating me on the importance of inseam length and ankle opening measurements for skinny jeans! She talks about denim type too, which isn’t as essential but is nice to know. Read her post, complete with pictures, here: http://yoonanimous.com/2012/02/10/how-to-tame-your-skinnies/
- Length – 26” inseam
- Ankle opening – 10”-10.5”
- Denim type – I prefer 98% cotton/2% spandex or 90% cotton/10% poly – both have nice denim weight. 92% cotton/6% polyester/2% spandex is still comfortable but has more stretch so is clingier & hangs less naturally.
