There’s a new denim brand on the scene which just launched exclusively on REVOLVE this month called GRLFRND. I never know what to expect from new denim brands as working in the denim industry, I see them come and go all the time, so I don’t often pay much attention to them or think they will be that good. I am pleased to say that’s not the case with GRLFRND though and I am becoming obsessed with them! So much so that I couldn’t wait to do this review for you after testing them out!
Fit: So these jeans are called the GRLFRND Candice Super Stretch Skinny Jeans in Love Hangover and they are literally that, a super stretchy, lightweight skinny jean. They feature a mid to higher rise of 9 inches, an inseam of 29.5 inches (it’s not 26″ like the website says) and a leg opening of around 9 inches, so you can see they are a classic, higher rise skinny jean which is extremely flattering and fitting. Despite the inseam being too long for me, I love everything about the fit of these. I’m probably going to hem them or just keep tucking them under like I am currently doing.
One thing I always look for as you all know by now is the placement of the back pockets and these are absolutely perfect! They aren’t too big or too small and they are placed perfectly apart to enhance the butt and give it a rounder appearance. The bottom of the back pockets hit just above the crease of where your butt cheeks meet your thigh, so I’m happy about that. (more…)

My White T in GRLFRND Jeans
It’s time for this months top 10 fashion bloggers in denim and we have a great line up for May! Even though Summer is here, there’s still a lot of bloggers loving their jeans and jackets, so there’s not a pair of denim shorts in sight! From skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, mom jeans and more, there’s an outfit here that would suit everyone and I have to say, these ladies are rocking their denim lately. They can’t get enough of it, especially when it comes to vintage inspired jeans.
We are obsessing over the mom jeans trend here at The Jeans Blog and are really happy to see it out and about on so many people. Denim jackets are trending right now too since the warmer weather is here, they look great paired with skirts and dresses. One cut that never gets tiring during these months though is boyfriend jeans and girls from all around the world are loving theirs! Which fashion blogger in denim do you think looks the best? We’d love to hear your thoughts and let us know if you want to be featured! (more…)
The MOTHER Insider Crop Step Fray Jeans are hitting it big right now! They have already been seen on celebs like Emma Roberts, Minka Kelly, Naomi Watts, and Miranda Kerr, but they are predicted to be even bigger for the Summer 2016 season! If you aren’t a fan of the cropped flares and bootcut jeans trend, I suggest you might want to re-think this particular pair as they seem to suit everyone. Not only does the slimmer silhouette look flattering and sleek, they are chic too and don’t shorten your legs as Emma Roberts has proven to us already.
The Shake Well wash that you can see above is made from a 93% cotton, 6% poly, 1% elastane blend and features a 14″ leg from the knee to the hem opening. I was shocked it was only 14″ as that’s usually the measurement for a straight leg, but as they are cropped, it does fray out a little more. They also have a short 25″ inseam and a high 10″ rise, so they are even blending in that mom jeans trend that we are growing to adore, but in a more straight/baby bootcut version as apposed to the skinny.
I was worried about this trend myself as my legs are quite short and anything but a skinny or long flares with heels make my legs look stunted if the inseam doesn’t hit in the right place, but I am yet to try this style! Have any of you tried this particular pair from MOTHER? I think the stepped hem which is longer in the back is gorgeous, it adds such an interesting element to the jeans.
This popular Not Rough Enough wash is made from a mix of 98% cotton and 2% elastane, with all of the details being the same as the light wash above, except this pair has an even shorter inseam of 23″ instead of 25″. I think the shorter inseam works here though as it stops the dark wash from looking too formal. If I had to choose a pair between the two, I think I love the Shake Well just a little bit more! Which pair do you love?
I had the honour of writing a 4 page article on finding the right jeans for your body shape for a brand new book called ‘Get It’ by Jacqueline Laurita and Jene Luciani which just launched this month! It’s a whole women’s guide on shopping, beauty tips, wellness and more, which is amazing. This article I’m sharing with you now on finding your perfect jeans is in the book, but slightly re-worded and written out differently, so you should definitely go and check it out! You can buy it in the UK here and in the US here.
All of us have different shapes, sizes and styles so finding the right pair of jeans can be a mammoth task. Luckily there are tips and tricks for each of you on finding the perfect pair of jeans and it couldn’t be simpler! All you need to do is follow a few of these steps and remember them when heading to the changing room of your latest denim department. It could save you a lot of time, stress and upset and hopefully help you in finding those long awaited jeans you have been looking for!
There’s a pair of jeans for every shape, so don’t worry! Just find yours below and start shopping! Just remember though that price does matter when it comes to good quality jeans. Premium denim will last you a lot longer, not bag out and it will be cut more symmetrical so you will often find a pair to last from the premium section. Don’t worry though, if the price is a little steep, they always have sales! You can check out the best online shops to buy premium denim here, but Shopbop and Revolve Clothing always have a great selection. Don’t forget you can find jeans for petite ladies here too, we haven’t left anyone out. (more…)
