Modeled by the lovely Jade a petite body shape, size 25 /UK8. Jade is the PR Manger for Trilogy Stores and fellow denim lover. Jade’s unique rise measurement is 11.5 inches, her preferred rise measurement is 8 to 9 inches.
The Fit: A classic mid rise skinny, 620 now comes in this seasons must-have colour of Electric Blue to add a little vibrancy to your wardrobe. The skinny leg hits just at the ankle and combined with the comfort and flattery of the mid rise creates a beautiful and sophisticated silhouette. Sizes 24 -29 are available at Trilogy.
Trilogy Say’s: In super bright blue, keep styling simple with a grey or beige cashmere knit or a simple white jersey tee and leather jacket.
Jade is wearing a size 25 in this style.

The Behind: A nice simple back pocket, placed in the middle of the bottom area. You can see form the image above Jade has a petite pert bottom which looks fab in these skinny’s.

The Fabric: 98% Cotton, 2% Elastane – Power stretch gives this jean fabulous stretch and recover. J Brands Power stretch is the perfect blend of cotton & Elastane which contours to the body without losing its shape.
Function: The electric blue colour gives this jean the edge on the style stakes. The style it’s self is a great wardrobe essential, one not to be missed if your looking to update your coloured jean this autumn.
Which Body Shape? J Brand knows if they want the style to be a bestseller they need to cover most of the body shapes. This includes keeping the rise at a wearable height. The rise measurement increases as the size gets larger so if your an hourglass or pear be sure to try a couple of sizes. The best way to check is by these simple steps to find out your unique rise measurement. I’m pleased to say the 620 style is good for the Apple body shape and perfect for Long & Leggy ladies. For the Petite, sizes start at 24 and leg length 29 inches!
The Round Up Of The J Brand 620 Skinny In Electric Blue
It’s funny how certain colours influence your way of thinking, as electric blue reminds me of the my school uniform in the 80′s. So not a colour I would opt for when purchasing clothing. However having said that BLUE is a big trend this season, so don’t let my high school angst get in your way of denim enjoyment. The style and fit of the 620 is spot on as one would expect for a J Brand skinny. ( I will be looking out for other colours). The price is a cool blue £215, which I do think is quite expensive by your paying for the powerstretch fabric.
