I have some really exciting news to share with you all! I’ve been able to collaborate with another denim brand and release a pair of jeans! About a year ago, Yoga Jeans and I teamed up to start designing a pair of jeans for their collection that I wanted and the result is these Sky Rise Ponte Legging Skinny Jeans in Black. I fell in love with their ponte and coated skinny last year, but I felt like I wanted a ponte version all over and a higher rise, which is why this particular pair was born!
These things take a long time, so it has actually been a year in total from start to finish and they are now available to buy! They come with a sticker label on the front of the leg which I have written so you know they are a collaboration jean. I go by the name of Lorna Raindrops online as that’s my personal social media name and what I’m known for on my own personal fashion blog, so it felt right to label these jeans that way.
So, lets get to it! These jeans are made in Canada as that’s where Yoga Jeans is based and they are made from a gorgeously stretchy and soft ponte fabric. By fusing perfect fit, diagonal stretch, comfort and sexiness into every pair, Yoga Jeans denim embraces the natural movement of a woman’s body. The rise on these jeans is extra high, coming in at 10 inches, while the inseam is 31 inches and the leg opening is 4.5 inches. Making these a really skinny high rise pant. As these are not actually denim and made from a ponte fabric, they are extremely stretchy like a thick legging so you can actually work out in them and do yoga if you wish, or just stay comfortable in them for day to day wear.
One of the main issues that I have when it comes to high rise jeans is the fact that a lot of brands alter the back pockets and position them higher up to fit in with the rise. This is always so unflattering on the butt and really gives the jeans a mom jeans vibe, so I wanted to make sure the back pockets remained the same and were still flattering. Increasing the rise doesn’t mean you have to move the back pockets up, so I’m really happy with the placement of these being lower down to hug the butt.
I will say that you should size down in these though as given the amount of stretch in them, they do run a full size big. I’m actually wearing these in my regular size 26 and as you can see they are slightly loose, so I need to size down to a 25 which I am doing soon. Just keep that in mind as these are designed to be worn tight like leggings are! The wash, if you can call it that, is just a plain, deep black. I wanted to do something versatile and classic, so what’s better than all black?
I would love to know what you think of these though! I’m so excited to finally be able to tell you all about them and let you know where to buy them! They are available in select stores in Canada and you can buy them online for $120 by clicking here, so they do have a really good price point. But definitely let me know what you think and whether or not you plan on buying them! I’d love to see how you style them and how they fit you! In the meantime, please check out all of the photos in the gallery below.

When I joined the DenimBlog team many years ago, one of the things that excited me the most and still does is being able to meet new brands and fall in love with new denim ideas. One brand that I have fallen in love with since I tried them a few months ago is Canadian based jeans company, Yoga Jeans. Mixing stretch fabrics with denim and creating jeans that you can literally do yoga in was the brands idea since being founded, in fact they were the first on the scene to bring this creative technology to us. This is why I am incredibly excited to host this giveaway with them here on DenimBlog!

I got the chance to review a pair of Yoga Jeans, which I was interested in trying after first hearing about the concept and brand. When they offered to send me a pair, I chose the classic mid-rise skinny jeans. They have a 9″ rise and I would say that these fit more like a low to mid-rise, as they hit me right below my hip bones. The inseam is 34″ and the leg opening is 12.” The fit is skinny throughout the legs but does open slightly more around the calf, so fits less like a jegging and more of a true skinny jean.
I chose the rinsed indigo, which is a great dark blue wash. The wash is really solid and has goldenrod contrast stitching and dark copper rivets and buttons. The pockets are large and sit slightly higher on the butt, which is really flattering.
The biggest thing I was excited about when trying these jeans was the fabric. It is an 82% Cotton, 16% Polyester, and 2% elastane blend. While I haven’t done Yoga in my pair, they certainly do not disappoint when it comes to comfort. The fabric feels like a mid-weight denim, and isn’t too heavy or too thin, that it no longer feels like denim. It does have a slimming fit but is not too constricting or tight.
Since I got them last week, I’ve worn mine a couple of times to work, where I spend a significant portion of the day sitting. I haven’t noticed a lot of loss of shape. They have stretched a bit since when I first got them but more to the point of fitting me better and are more comfortable.
Overall, I was really impressed with how comfortable these jeans are and how unique the fabric is. While they have had a bit of stretching since I’ve worn them, they haven’t become shapeless as many pairs become, so I am interested in seeing how the shape holds up in the long run.
