Designer Jeans reviews
This weeks denim review is on a pair of jeans from a newer Italian brand that we introduced to you not long ago, Don’t Cry Baby. I’m reviewing the Skinny Low DCB 325 jeans in Nero.
The fit of these jeans is a very skinny fit, they are a low rise with an inseam that hits around the ankles. On me they are full length but on some other people with longer legs they will be ankle skimmers. I always think that’s the best length to be as it’s the most flattering. It works for a majority of people. I find these to be quite stretchy as well so they are quite comfortable.
The back pocket placement on Don’t Cry Baby jeans is also one that I am not really used to, they are positioned completely different to most other denim brands. The pockets are placed at an angle so they point outwards. You can see what I mean in the gallery pictures below. I think they are positioned that way to flatter figures. I can see that they actually make the butt look smaller rather than accentuate it. Well, that’s what I found with me. So if you want to minimise your butt a bit, these might be the jeans for you. The pockets are positioned a lot higher than on other premium denim brands. I don’t like to try and make my butt smaller though, even though I do have a tush, I like to wear jeans that don’t minimise it, ha ha. I feel like these flatten it rather than let it stick out. That’s my personal preference though, I know a lot of you want to minimise it.
The wash is black, but it’s a black that’s faded a bit. You can see that it’s got some grainy undertones to it in real life. It doesn’t come out so well in the pictures. They also have a little distressed patch at the top of one of the thighs. It’s actually rare to find a distressed pair of black jeans really. I did find these jeans incredibly easy to pair things with though. Obviously since they are black they pretty much go with anything so that’s a bonus! The back patch is one that I find so cute! It has a fairy on it which looks quite similar to Tinkerbell and some little stars. It’s a very girly logo and I love it! From what I have seen though, the brand has some amazing jeans coming out, especially the washes and the moto jean! Buy these jeans online for 150 Euros.
Here is a video review of Bleulab’s Detour Leggings in French Chalk with Plum Coating. I mentioned a while ago that I would be doing a video to show you how the details like the zipper and buttons work and just how easy it is to turn them inside out. I reviewed them the regular way a few months ago (which you can see here) but I think this way shows them off a lot more. What do you think of the first DenimBlog video review?
This week I am reviewing one of the new Paige jeans, the Verdugo jeggings in Paige Blue. This colour is Paige’s new signature colour for the brand and it’s also in one of my favourite cuts from the brand!
If you haven’t tried the famous Verdugo leggings from Paige yet, then you really should. They are still one of my favourite (if not my favourite) jeggings from any brand. They are so comfortable and really flattering as well as being skinny all the way down to the ankles and super stretchy. They are everything you want a jegging to be. They combine Paige’s classic flattering fit with ultimate comfort and I honestly do live in the Verdugo. They are my go to leggings for running errands but they also look amazing dressed up. I own quite a few now and I love them! I took a 27 in these which is my normal Paige size and they fit me perfectly.
It’s really exciting trying them in this bold and bright wash though! The Paige Blue is one of those blues that you can’t describe. It’s a medium blue but it’s also a bright blue. I would say the pictures of me in the jeans are really close to how they look in real life. They seem to be a bit paler on the Paige website when in fact they are very bold. It’s a gorgeous colour and I have fun wearing these! This is also a colour you can match with other bright colours like my berry scarf. I think blue is incredibly versatile!
I also wore them to London yesterday for press days and they do remain comfortable for the whole day. That involves a lot of traveling and they only stretched out a bit, they are still very clingy. The whipstitching is tonal on the pocket too so it doesn’t stand out so much. I know Paige says she likes it like that as it makes it look more chic. I agree! For those of you also wondering, I did get my hair cut, I got a fringe/bangs which was really scary, but I think I like it! Buy these jeans online at PaigeUSA.com for $179.

This weeks review is on a pair of Closed Denim Biker Pants in Khaki which I got sent by the lovely brand to try. I have always loved the look of their jeans, they love to try colours and different styles so they have been a fun brand that I have wanted to try for a while. I’m really glad they sent me the biker style as well, I love them a lot more than I thought I would.
The fit of these jeans is really skinny. As you can see from the photos, they are a super skinny jean all the way down from the hips to the ankle. They feature inseam zippers as well so that adds to their skinniness. I have grown really fond of the inseam zippers instead of outerseam zippers. I prefer them as they are more subtle. They are slightly small in the waist though, but I do find that happens a lot with Italian jeans, they are cut differently to the American based brands.
They also have two seams that go down the outside of the legs, not just one outserseam but another one for detailing and I think that makes them very unique. The moto/biker stitching on the knees is also one that I love so much! Sometimes brands find it hard to get this right and make it really realistic while being comfortable, but these are comfortable as well as really well done. The stitching doesn’t go all the way around to the back so they are much more easy to bend your legs in without feelling restricted.
The back pocket placement is quite high up too which does give the illusion that your butt is more perkier. It makes it more rounded and another thing I find with this brand, since they are Italian and cut differently, is they give you a bit more room in the butt area which I find really useful as I don’t end up with the flat or squashed tush look that I do with some jeans.
The fabric of these is really really soft and very stretchy. It feels a lot like a jegging material because it’s really easy to move in and it’s quite clingy. You can see from the photos how soft and tight it feels and looks at the same time. It’s really nice. I took a 27 in these which is my normal jeans size. It’s my first time trying the brand though so I can’t compare the sizing to other Closed jeans unfortunately. Even though these jeans have a lot of detail on them, they are still minimal and flattering. The stitching is the same colour as the Khaki wash so nothing stands out too much, everything blends in which I like. I’m also a huge fan of the Khaki colour, I find it matches a lot of clothes and is easy to pair many colours with. It’s a great Fall/Winter neutral!
I think I have covered most of the details and everything that I can but of course I will always answer your questions through the comment system if you have any! These are definitely in my top two moto/biker jeans! They are up at the number one spot with my James Jeans moto jeans! I love them! These also come in green, red and blue! So if you want to be bold and fun, you can try out those colours as well! Buy the Closed Denim Biker pants online at Closed.com for 189 Euros.
