Diesel have brought out a brand new hybrid jean which just became available today called the Jogg Jean. I know Diesel are always experimenting with denim, bringing out extreme washes and ideas etc and their latest plan was to cross a jogging bottom/sweat pant with a pair of jeans, which created the Jogg Jean. They sent these to me last month so I could model them and be part of their website creation for the Jogg Jeans along with some other bloggers but I wasn’t allowed to post about them for a while. The website feature will be released in the beginning of August.
I was very unsure about these at first, I thought to myself, how can you cross a jogging bottom and a jean and actually make it wearable or look good? But they did. I was really suprised. Since I am shorter and not blessed with long legs, I decided to make these cropped and pulled them up to my calves and rolled over the waistband so the crotch wasn’t dropped as low and I think that makes them work a lot better for my body shape. The Jogg Jeans have a super high rise so if you wear them at your hips, the crotch falls at mid thigh or lower for the harem pant look.
I can’t say that these are the most flattering pair of Diesel jeans I have tried, because they are not, but I can say they are definitely the most comfiest pair I have ever ever tried. I can easily wear them all day around the house or I could even sleep in them, they are literally that soft and comfortable. This wash also reminds me a lot of the Dirty Thirty wash they brought out as a limited edition jean a long time ago, I’m not sure if you remember that jean but it’s quite similar with the little tadpole style holes and patches at the thigh.
The thing I find most intriguing about these jeans is trying to find clothes to pair them with. I don’t think they would look very good with heels or dressed up really girly and smart as they don’t have that look to them. I think the way to go is casual or quirky. They do run huge though, I am usually a 28 in Diesel and I took a 26 in these and they still fit loosely but that’s due to them also being crossed with a jogging bottom. I can definitely see a lot of people wearing these hybrid jeans, I think we will see a lot of unique outfits consisting of the Jogg Jeans! You can now buy these pants online at Diesel for ┬ú180.
The thing I like about Halle and her denim choices is that she has a pair of jeans or shorts that she will wear a lot every day and then she will change them for something else and then wear those every day. It’s nice to see celebs doing that sometimes! I actually really like these shorts as well.

Nicola Roberts, former member of Girls Aloud, looked pleased to see the paps as she was outside the ITV Studios in London, England earlier in the month. Have any of you heard Nicola’s new solo song ‘Beat Of My Drum’? It’s not really my kind of music. I don’t think her performance at T4 on the Beach was that good either unfortunately.
Nicola was wearing a pair of Electric Blue skinny jeans from Topshop which she paired with Christian Louboutin Jem shoes, a cropped tee and a leather jacket. I actually quite like this look. It might be the shoes though, I’ve loved the Jem ever since they came out. What do you think of the Topshop jeans? They are a great way to jump on board the coloured denim trend without spending too much money! You can buy these jeans at Topshop.com and they have loads of other colours and prints to choose from.

Charlize Theron posed for photos with Kristen Stewart, Sam Claflin and Chris Hemsworth at the ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ panel at Comic Con in San Diego, California.
Charlize really stood out in a pair f 7 For All Mankind The Skinny jeans in Clean White. In my opinion she looked the best out of everyone. Her outfit really makes a statement and the jeans fit her perfectly! I love it! Buy 7 For All Mankind jeans at Singer22.com.
