I received these Lucky Brand Hayden straight leg jeans in Corolla for review. When first trying them on, I was really impressed by two things: the flattering cut and how soft they are! With a fabric composition of 92% cotton and 6% elastomultiester, 2% elastane, the fabric is very soft, with a good amount of stretch. It is also thick enough to provide a nice shape and give that flattering fit. One of the biggest gripes I have with jeans with a lot of stretch is they tend to lose their shape over time. I’ve been wearing these on a weekly basis over the past month or so, and they have held their shape pretty nicely, with minimal stretching.
The Hayden Straight Leg is a true straight leg style, with a 14.5″ leg opening. I chose the regular inseam, which is 32″, they hit me right at my ankles (I usually wear a 32-34″ inseam, for an ankle fit or a full length fit). These also have a mid-high rise which is 10″ in the front and 14.5″ inches in the back. One of the additional features is that these have a slimming panel in the front, which is designed to slim but is not at all constricting or uncomfortable. I got my normal size in these and found that it does fit slightly on the larger side but not enough to size down.
Although I’m an avid lover of dark washes, I chose the Corolla wash because I wanted something a little lighter for spring and summer. The wash is a nice mid/light blue with white undertones and tonal stitching details. There is subtle whiskering and fading down the front of the thighs and around the back near the pockets. The wash looks really great worn with white to bring out the undertones or bolder spring colors like yellow and cobalt blue.
One of the things that impressed me the most about these jeans was the attention to detail. I love that each rivet, both front and back is stamped with Lucky’s signature 4 leaf clover design. The design is incorporated in other places throughout as well, including with the front pocket lining and a small patch along the back. It’s a subtle, but nice touch. The coin pocket also has a unique design with a slit hole and curved bottom which nicely mirrors the curve of the front pockets.
Overall, I impressed by how these jeans managed to be slimming without being too constricting or stiff. The wash is great for a day-to-day wear and pairs nicely with so many different colors. I’m sure I’ll be wearing these jeans quite a bit this upcoming spring! You can buy these jeans online from Lucky’s Website.

Ashley Greene was spotted heading to a business meeting in Studio City, California. The actress wore a pair of Lucky Brand Charlie Skinny Suede Pants in Sedona Spice with a hoodie and Marant boots. It has been a while since we got a sighting of Ashley. Usually we see her more dressed up, but I like that she took the casual approach.
I find unlike leather, suede has this ease to them that makes them easier for a casual look than a dressier one. You can wear them like Ashley here with ankle boots or wear them with sneakers for an even more casual look. How would you wear suede pants? You can click here to purchase these pants from the Lucky Brand website ON SALE for $249.
Here is a look at the Fall 2012 campaign and look book from Lucky Brand Jeans. Both the campaign and look book feature models David Gandy and Magdalena Frackowiak. Magdalena is actually ranked #23 on Models.com, so she is one of the best models for the job, while everyone loves David Gandy! The images were shot on location at the Butterfly House on the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean in Carmel by the Sea. Photographer, Alasdair McLellan, gives a great Fall vibe to the shoot. You get a sense of crisp air and fresh cold mornings from looking at the photographs.
Lucky Brand Jeans is featuring lots of chunky knits for their Fall 2012 collection as well as some warm leather jackets. Of course jeans are featured throughout every image, showcasing their new denim styles for the coming season which is fast approaching. You can check out the images in the gallery below and also watch the behind the scenes video. What do you think of the new collection from Lucky Brand Jeans? My favorite look would have to be the Velvet Cherry pants and Cheetah Print Cardigan!
We have collaborated with Lucky Brand Jeans to choose our top 5 picks from their collection. Lucky offers so many different styles and options, I had a lot of fun making my choices! I have chosen what I think are 5 perfect options for every occasion and styles that will transition well into the fall months and be suitable for day to night wear.
The first pair of jeans that I chose was the Gypsy Sun wash. Mustard is definitely one of the perfect brights to wear in fall! It has that perfect golden hue to it that is reminiscent of the changing leaves, yet it still contains a brightness to keep things cheerful!
My second option below is the Charlie skinny in Coated Sparkle Gold. Metallic jeans are hot this season and I am seeing them more and more on the streets as well as in the stores. These jeans have just the right amount of subtlety to them to make them wearable, yet enough sparkle to rock at a party!
My third choice is a classic, the Charlie Baby Boot in Meadow. I chose these because there are days when you need something more than a skinny jean and the baby boot is a great style that is slimming and shapely. You don’t get that swamped feeling that some heavy bootcuts can give you and the Meadow wash is a beautiful mid blue which will go with pretty much anything.
My fourth option is the Charlie skinny in Red Feather Print as feather patterns are really popular right now, and again, deep red is a shade that is amazing for fall! These jeans combine both a trendy print as well as a gorgeous colour so you can’t really go wrong with these! Plus, the fit looks really nice!
My fifth and final option is the Legend skinny in Coated Navy Falls. Everyone needs a classic staple jean in their wardrobe and these look like they could be an ideal pair! They are super skinny all over and the intense dark blue wash looks almost black so it can be worn during the day or dressed up at night. They are a great versatile skinny jean!
