This weeks review is on a pair of James Jeans Twiggy denim leggings in W.Troy wash. I got these quite a while ago but they were a bit too tight at the time so I didn’t review them. They fit me now though and I am really pleased they do because they are beautiful! They are size 27 and run pretty true to size, maybe a little on the small side.
We have seen so many celebs wearing James Jeans Twiggy denim leggings and now I understand why there is so much love for them. They are one of the most stretchiest pairs of jeggings but they are also a pair that keep you all in place and still look flattering. They are sturdy like a normal pair of jeans but a lot more comfortable than regular denim. The fit is one of the skinniest I have tried in a while, they fit like second skin with a medium rise which is perfect.
This is my first time actually trying a pair of James Jeans denim, I had the cargos before, which I loved, but these jeans were pleasantly surprising. I never know what to expect when trying a new brand of jeans, sometimes they can be wonderful and sometimes they can be a complete disaster. The back pockets are also in a good place to flatter the butt which is always important and I am growing quite fond of the signature pocket design.
The W.Troy wash wasn’t the original wash I wanted to try as it had polyester in the fabric content but I was actually pleased when I tried these on that you can’t feel the polyester. Sometimes it’s hit or miss when it comes to poly/cotton blend jeans, sometimes they can itch my legs like crazy and sometimes you can’t feel it at all. W.Troy is a really dark blue denim that doesn’t have much depth to it, it’s just plain but most dark washes are like that. It’s a great wash for dressing up!
