These skinny jeans really hug and fit me perfectly. The lace is also very well attached. This is sewn on and Is reinforced well so it wont come loose. This pair of skinny jeans are meant to be worn with a nice pair of heels. They look so cute with heels and a white top.. Overall I have no negative things to say about this pair of skinny jeans only positive. I do recommend you pay attention to size chart it will not lead you in the wrong direction.
