Premium Denim At It’s Finest
As with most things in fashion… and life… not all things are created equally. But (pun intended), aside from couture… premium denim is in a league of its own. The cut, quality, wash, trandability and wearability of each jean on the market are as important as where they are made, who is designing them and which retailers sell them. So, it’s no wonder, by the time you hit the shops to dish out upwards of $300 for… let’s face it, cotton pants, you’re overwhelmed and it can get a little upsetting.
So to make your life easier, I’ve enlisted the help of a very dear friend of mine who also happens to be a veritable denim expert. Negaar knows her stuff and while we mulled over the new Fall 2014 selection of denim on the market, her and my love of J Brand respectively, guided us to select styles from none other, that than the jean juggernaut. A few styles rushed to the top of our best sellers list and she ultimately chose three styles that are this season’s “Must Haves.”
Oh and don’t worry, though J Brand apparently invented the skinny as we know it (according to Florence Kane,) not ALL the Must Have styles are skinny jeans. Curvy girls rejoice!
Take it away Negaar!
I think every woman can agree with me when I say, shopping for the prefect pair of jeans can not only be a challenge but, a form of psychological torture. Which, then leads into major body dysmorphia, proclamations of up coming diets, and finally giving up and claiming you are more of a dress and skirt type of gal. Thankfully J Brand really understands how trying this process can be for us ladies. They have yet again, produced jeans that you will happily try on and make you feel as if you have just had a instant butt lift without having to do any squats!
The Jess Jean
I love J Brand’s and for the last seven years you would seldom see me in any other brand of denim. My personal favorite style is the Maria high-rise skinny leg. Muffin top say goodbye! The high waistline also lifts and accents your derriere in the best of ways. This season J Brand has introduced to the market the “Jess Jean,” a new take on their Maria Jean in their new “CLOSE CUT” denim. I recently tried on a pair of the new Close Cut Denim and OMG, it was amazing! The fabric fits so closely to your body like a second layer of skin, it may as well feel as if you have no pants on at all! The Close Cut Jess Stacked Skinny in Silence is a must have for fall 2014.

The Jake Jean
The Jake could possibly be the best boy-fit jean in the market. Pair it with a basic Tee and plaid flannel button-up you have the best daytime outfit. These pants not only look so cool but, are also incredibly comfortable the relaxed fit, mid-rise, and soft fabric make it an easy item to wear day in day out. This Slouchy boy-fit jean can be worn straight or rolled up. They can be incredibly casual or dressed up with a cute silk tank and heels. This style comes in a range of colors however the Bohemia is by far my favorite. The wash has a great vintage look to it and I’m a total sucker for distressed denim.
Remy Bootcut Leather Pant
If Angelina Jolie were an item of clothing she would be the Leather Remy Bootcut Pant. For the last few seasons we have seen A LOT of leather in the fashion scene and the majority in the pant department have been super skinny or leather leggings. The Remy Bootcut silhouette is a fresh take on the Leather pant. With 100% Lamb Leather and a high-rise waist, these badass pants are sexy, sleek and sophisticated! Warning these pants may make you feel like a super hero channeling your inner Black Widow.
