This weeks review is on the MET Xfit 360 Super Stretch jeans/jeggings. I got sent these from the brand from their Spring/Summer 2011 collection and I am in love with them!
The wash of these is actually my favourite part of them. It’s a pastel/chalky/dusty blue and it has so much life to it! Normally with jeggings they come in the classic washes but MET took it a step further with these. The wash actually reminds me a lot of a Diesel wash with the chalky effect over the bright blue fabric, it’s really pretty and it makes the jeans beautiful in their own right, you don’t need to rely on an outfit to spruce them up.
The fit is one of MET’s classic fits, the Angel skinny jean. The Angel is a low rise, skin tight, thicker waistband cut and it’s really flattering. I own a few pairs of MET jeans now and I have to say these are the comfiest ones I have. They are just so stretchy and hugging that they do feel like a really well made pair of jeggings. Normally MET jeans can be quite tight and restricting but these aren’t at all. I can happily wear them around all day and still be comfortable.
MET can be known for their over the top aesthetics on jeans but this pair won me over because they kept them so simple. They are completely plain except for the little MET tag on the top of the pocket. For a jegging/super stretch jean as well, I have to say they are really quite structured. They are not so thin that they don’t do anything for your shape but they are not too thick either. They are the perfect balance in between which still looks and fits like a great pair of jeans but they have that extra added comfort and move-ability to them.
Elle MacPherson is already a huge fan of the brand and owns multiple pairs of their jeans and I do understand why. I have a few pairs now too and they are a really well made Italian denim brand. I reviewed their faux leather skinny jeans a while back as well, which you can see here. Those are also another favourite of mine.
Heidi Klum, her son Henry Samuel and daughters Lou Sulola Samuel and Leni Klum were seen spending the day at The Grove in West Hollywood in Los Angeles, California.
Every time I see Heidi she always seems to look so fresh faced and happy. Even though her style is slightly more quirky, she always manages to look good too! This time she chose a darker wash denim jacket to pair with her chinos and tee. I love the striped scarf she accessorized with, it adds that little something extra to the outfit.

Hilary Duff attend the SoBe ‘Try Everything’ challenge at Madison Square Park in New York City yesterday. It looked like she was having so much fun! She challenged people to bowling but instead of using a bowling ball they had to use a melon!
For the event, Hilary chose to wear a pair of the J Brand 811 coloured skinny jeans in Bright Royal. These jeans are becoming so popular with the celebs! I always wonder what jeans J Brand are going to bring out to make a statement with each season. I’m wondering what they will be doing for Fall! Buy J Brand jeans at Singer22.com.

Sarah Jessica Parker took her son James to school in their West Village neighbourhood in New York City yesterday. Every time we see Sarah she is on the school run, just like Claudia and Elle over here in London. It’s nice to see them being so hands on with their children.
I absolutely love the way these J Brand skinny jeans fit her though, they fit perfectly and the dark wash makes her legs look really long. I’m not normally fond of shirts that are that baggy but because it’s tucked into the jeans at the front, it works really well. I need some more J Brand classic jeans, you can never have too many!
