Right here are your answers!

You said: ""When I went for the interviews everyone was in jeans and t-shirts."" I would recommend you go in with Jeans and a casual dress shirt with flats or sneakers. After you understand the vibe or ask another female employee then go with your skinny jeans..

The ones I own are also made of good fabric so they don't look super cheap. Any insights?
I work in New York City @ a very prestigious firm but we have a casual dress code as well. I always wear skinnies, as do many other women. It's never been an issue. We even have people that wear shorts here. It's pretty much anything goes in my office, lol. But yeah, you could always do skinnies, pumps and a blazer - that is a good & classy look for work. (I'm assuming you're a woman).

I think some of you are thinking of jeggings. Which aren't the same as skinny jeans.
