Designer Jeans reviews
As promised, here are the modelled photos of my Paige Premium collaboration Lou Lou flared jeans in Lorna. These are the exact same wash as the Skyline and the other cuts that have been part of the collaboration, just in the Lou Lou (click here to see the other styles). The Lou Lou is actually my favourite flared cut that exists in denim, I love how skinny it is and it has the perfect amount of flare. Unfortunately these don’t come in the petite version, I would love it if they did, so these are a little bit long on me as I haven’t hemmed them. I don’t think there are enough ladies that need the petite version over the full length. These run at around 35 inches in the inseam. Even with my highest shoes they are still a bit long ha ha, I’m not blessed with very long legs.
The Lou Lou’s are available to buy on Revolve Clothing and on the Paige USA website. Revolve have sold out of a couple of sizes though already. I wanted to say thank you to everyone who likes the collaboration jeans and who have bought them! I’ve got quite a few messages saying some of you have picked up your pairs and I can see by how quickly almost all of the sizes sold out on Revolve in the Skyline that they are liked. It means so much to me, as it does to Paige, and it’s overwhelming to know. If you click here, you can see all of the places you can buy the different styles.They are not yet available in the UK but will be soon, I will let you know as soon as they are! Thank you again! I really hope I can do more collaborations in the future and continue to design jeans.
This weeks review is on a pair of Paige Premium Jimmy Jimmy shorts in Tigerlily which I bought from Shopbop a couple of weeks ago. I was eyeing them on the website for a really long time and I eventually gave into buying them and I am glad I did.
The cut of these is just like the Jimmy Jimmy boyfriend jeans but in a short version. They do run big for that reason so I sized down to a 26 to make them fit me a little tighter, I prefer my jeans and shorts tighter as they are more flattering. If you want these shorts to be loose then go with your normal Paige size but if you want them tighter fitting then size down.
The good thing about these shorts is that you can wear them cuffed or uncuffed. They just come rolled up, but if you want them longer you can let them down. These are definitely a pair of shorts which you can make your own and wear exactly how you want to with the length. The whipstitching is something I was attracted to as well. Paige usually has thinner and smaller lines on the side of her pocket but these are oversized and I think that makes them look a lot better.
The Tigerlily wash is one that I can’t quite describe. It’s a medium blue with a lot of whiskering and creasing on the lap area but in some lights it looks a lot darker than it actually is. It’s a hard wash to explain but it’s beautiful. The wash is actually what made me fall in love with these shorts in the first place. It’s very pretty and it’s also really versatile, you can wear a lot of colours with it.
I can tell these shorts are going to be my go to pair when it’s hot enough outside, they are so comfortable, soft and very stretchy. All of the qualities I look for in a pair of shorts combined with the flattering fit that Paige has with all of her denim. I find some shorts can be too tight, too rigid, too short etc, these have the perfect balance and I am really happy I bit the bullet and bought them! These seem to be one of Paige’s best sellers and now I know why! I would definitely recommend them to you! Buy these shorts online here at Shopbop.
Here are the modelled/fit photos of my Paige Premium collaboration jeans, the Skyline in Lorna wash. Since I always do denim reviews for you, I thought it would make sense to also model these jeans so you can see the fit but obviously not review them.
I’m really excited that some of you have bought them already and there is already some limited stock on Shopbop as well as size 32 being sold out. I’m really grateful to you all for liking the collaboration. The wash on these is quite a bit darker than the sample and the Tristan, it got darkened during production and the distressing is not as prominent on these, like it was on the Tristan, but I do think that makes them a little more versatile, the cleaner they are, the easier they are to pair with different clothes.
The fabric blend is super soft and stretchy as it has elasterell in it so it’s very comfortable and feels different to other Paige jeans. I will mention that you should probably take your smaller size in these though, a 27 fits me perfectly and I am usually between a 27/28 in Paige jeans. As you can see from the tag, it’s a special collaboration tag which explains about the collaboration and also includes a little saying which I wrote in memory of loved ones. They also have a bright pink lining as pink is both Paige’s and my favourite colour. You can see the other posts about the collaboration by clicking here. Please comment and let me know what you think of the jeans.
I have been so excited to review these jeans for you all! This is my first coloured denim review I have posted on DenimBlog (even though I love coloured denim) and it feels like it’s going to be the best one! I got sent these Current/Elliott The Skinny jeans in Bright Rose in the mail from Trilogy a couple of weeks ago and I fell in love with them as soon as I saw a glimpse of the colour in real life.
Those of you who know me, or read DenimBlog regularly, will know that pink is my favourite colour, so you can understand how happy I am due to the fact that these jeans are the most prettiest pink I have ever seen in denim. The camera actually struggles to pick it up very well because it’s so intense. The shade is so vibrant and so bright, you can’t really understand how hot it is until you see it in real life. I didn’t expect these to be as gorgeous as they were just from the photos online. They are definitely bold and daring and they make you stand out a lot, but I think as long as you keep the rest of your outfit fairly neutral, it works.
The Skinny fit is sort of a classic for Current/Elliott, it’s a perfect skinny jean in the sense that it’s fairly low rise, super slim all the way down, the inseam is not too long and it runs true to size for the brand. Again, I took a 26 in these and although they do run slightly, just slightly, smaller than their other denim, I can still fit them.
Since these are a coloured jean, the fabric is not as soft and not as worn in as their other jeans. I usually love the brand because of how soft and delicate their denim is against your skin but because these are just dyed and haven’t been washed a lot and made to feel worn in, they are not as soft, but that’s not a bad point at all, I find them to still be very comfy and still soft in comparison to some other brands denim I have tried.
I think, if you love coloured denim, or just want to give it a try, Current/Elliott is the way to go. They have really made their washes so fun and they literally scream at you with their intensity in colour! They have pink, yellow, green, blue, coral and purple to choose from. The coral colour, called Punch, is another favourite of mine and looks amazing, I would love to try that one too. I think it’s safe to say that these actually might be my favourite pair of Current/Elliott jeans that I own and have seen. They are stunning! They make you feel so happy and cheerful just from the fact that they are bright pink! I love them. Click here to buy these jeans online at Trilogy.
