Denim Review: Kasil Minx skinny in Bolero
My second review this week is on the Kasil Minx skinny jeans in Bolero which I got sent from the brand. This is actually my first time trying Kasil jeans and I was really suprised. I wasn’t expecting them to be as nice as they are! Usually when I find a premium denim brand that works for me, I tend to stick to it so I don’t venture into other brands I feel like I am not close to. I love doing denim reviews for this reason, I get to try out the different brands and see how they compare to what I have grown to love and know about premium denim.
The fit of these is one that suprised me, they are a super skinny lower/medium rise jean and I find them to be very flattering. The inseam was a bit long for me though (33″) so I did have to ‘bunch tuck’ them (I still plan on doing a video to show you how to do this). The pocket placement was actually what suprised me about these jeans though. I’m often weary of other brands because I never know if the pockets will look ok. The back pocket placement is the first thing I look for in a pair of jeans actually. These are perfectly positioned and I actually find them really flattering on the butt. The side of the pockets have a slight roundness to them which gives your butt a more rounded look.
This Bolero wash is a simple and classic dark blue. It’s not super clean and it doesn’t really have a sheen to it, it’s a slightly grainy/rougher dark blue so it means you can dress them down a lot easier but you can also dress them up. The wash of these isn’t my favourite part of the jeans because I often review a lot of dark skinny jeans so I have to be careful that I don’t blend the washes into a blur in my reviews. My favourite jeans to review have medium, coloured or distressed washes because you can really talk about the wash. I find it difficult when they are dark all the time. My favourite dark washes are the super clean, dark blue with a sheen to them. I love those! This Bolero wash does suit the style of the jeans though, I don’t find them to be too smart because of the detailed stitching by the side of the back pockets so it fits fine.
I think if you haven’t tried Kasil before then you should probably start out with the Minx skinny fit, if you like skinnies of course. It’s a great fitting skinny and really flattering. I took a 27 in these which is generally my normal size in premium denim but as I haven’t tried Kasil before, I don’t know if these are true to size for the brand. I would assume they are though. Also, even though these have polyester in them, it’s not really that much of a problem. I can feel it a bit and I think if it was hot it might be a bit irritable on me but otherwise, it’s not much of an issue. You will also have to excuse the state of my hair ha ha, I’d just returned from the beach and it was super windy. Buy these jeans at Piperlime for $168.
