Denim Review: Mavi Serena Ankle Skinny Jeans in Mint
This weeks review is on a pair of Mavi Serena Ankle skinny jeans in Mint which I received as a gift from the brand, but since I haven’t reviewed Mavi before, I thought I would review these for you all.
This was my first time trying Mavi jeans and for a cheaper denim brand, again I was quite suprised with them. The fit is really nice, it’s very flattering all over and the back pockets are really nicely positioned as well. The rise is a lower/mid rise and the inseam is supposed to be at the ankle, but since I have shorter legs it actually bunches a little bit. So they work perfectly for long length skinny jeans or for cropped ankle jeans. I can say I’m quite impressed by the Serena fit, I found it very flattering on me and they passed my strict butt flattering tests!
The fabric of these jeans is pretty much like a jegging. It’s very thin though so it can be a little bit on the see through side and also, as I’m sure you can see, it shows up any bumps/lumps that you may have so it’s not a jean that would suck you in and hold your shape, it’s a jean that sits on you and shows your shape. If that makes sense. Because of how stretchy and thin they are, they do wrinkle quite a lot as you can see, but the comfort of these definitely overrides that issue, for me anyway.
Now the best thing about these jeans is the Mint wash. I absolutely love it! I have some mint leggings, but not any mint jeans, which is shocking I know since it’s a very popular colour. It’s such a bright and fun pastel shade of green, it’s gorgeous. Depending on your computer screen, it does look like my photos, it’s not as pale as the photo on the Mavi website in my opinion. Mine seem a little bit brighter than that. But it’s definitely beautiful, I really like the Mint wash.
Overall, for $92 or £62.90, depending on your country of residence, they are a great pair of jeans. They are cotton and elastane so very soft and comfortable, they have a great fit and the colour is stunning. They are perfect jeans for warm weather due to their thinness, I wouldn’t say they are great for the winter though as you might get cold in them, but definitely great summer jeans! You can buy these online here at Mavi for £62.90.
