My second review for this week is on the Paige Premium Curson Cargos in Slate. They are Paige’s brand new cargo pant for Fall/Winter and they come in 4 colours; Slate, Black and Moss for the new washes or Super Tanzania for the older wash.
The fit of these cargo pants is no more than you would expect from the brand, they have the gorgeous skinny fit, much like the Skyline jeans but they are made of a cotton material instead of denim. They do have some stretch to them and the back pockets are a bit different to normal, the usual Paige lines on the left side of the pocket are oversized and quite a statement, I love that! They also don’t have the regular Paige curved line of stitching on the back pockets either. They are completely plain. The pockets at the knees fit in the right place and the inseam isn’t too long or too short. They have a wonderful fit and I’ve worn these about 3 times already!
The wash is a plain dark grey, much like its name, Slate, it is that colour and quite strong. The major problem I had with the wash of these pants was how much it bled onto my skin after every wear. Like I said, I have worn these 3 times and my legs were stained a very dark blue each time. I thought by the third wear they wouldn’t be as bad but they are so I would 100% recommend washing these before you wear them and wash them alone so they don’t dye your other garments. I never like to wash my jeans before I wear them as I feel it ruins the wash a bit but with these cargo pants, the Slate wash would look amazing slightly washed out in my opinion. Other than the dye bleeding issue they are the perfect Fall colour, they match everything as they are neutral
I’m still very much in love with cargo pants. I’ve always been a girl who lives in jeans so it does make a nice change to switch to cargo pants sometimes and give the jeans a break, but while still keeping the amazing fit of your favourite brands. I’m really glad that skinny cargo pants came on the scene and have been as popular as they are. If you haven’t tried a pair yet then I would definitely recommend them! The thing I love most about the cargos is not only how detailed they are but how versatile, you can wear them with heels, wedges, boots, sandals and sweaters, vests, tank tops, shirts… They go with almost anything! As long as you keep the colours trending and don’t pair them with something too smart you are good to go! Buy these Paige Premium Curson Cargos at Paige Premium online for $169.

I am doing 2 reviews this week and the first one is on the J Brand 910 Skinny Jeans in Hightide wash. I got these from Gilt Groupe a little while ago and I love them! I’ve always been a fan of how pretty the wash is since I saw them on Kristin Cavallari a while back. I haven’t yet reviewed a classic J Brand fit so I thought it was about time I did.
The 910 skinny cut from J Brand is my favourite cut they do. I prefer it to the 912 as the 912 is not skinny enough for me and the inseam is much too long. With the 910 fit the inseam is perfect, I think it runs at around 30 so it would be great for the ankle peg look if you are taller or if you are not too tall like myself then they look just like skinny jeans. The rise is also perfect, I would say it is around 7 inches and they are extremely skinny all over. The one thing I love most about J Brand is how fitted they are in the legs. I normally find it difficult to get a good fitting pair of jeans in the waist and in the legs at the same time as my legs are quite small, but these fit wonderfully all over.
The back pocket placement is also another favourite of mine when it comes to J Brand jeans. They really take care in positioning the pockets in exactly the right place to uplift your bum and make it look really nice. They are not too spaced apart which gives the illusion of a wide butt and they are not too close together either, the position is just how it should be and that’s always something I look for in a jean. I’m never a fan of them if they don’t fit right in the rear area, haha. I also love the fact that J Brand’s pockets are completely plain, it makes the jeans more focused on the fit and wash rather than the pockets so they are suitable for anybody really.
The wash is absolutely the best thing about these jeans though! It’s an amazing deep blue with whiskering in the lap area which is in a great position to look authentic and there are crinkles down the thighs and honeycombing on the backs of the knees. Normally I can be really annoyed with these kind of details because a lot of the time they can look cheaply done and not in the right position for me as my legs are normally not long enough and the honeycombs fit somewhere on my calves, but with these Hightide’s, they fit perfectly on the backs of my knees which makes them look authentic. The wash did feel a bit scratchy at first which I thought was strange since it doesn’t have polyester in it but I think it was just because they were so new, now I have worn them a lot they feel just fine.
I would definitely recommend the 910 fit over any of the skinny jeans J Brand has to offer. If you are like myself and love super skinny jeans but have smaller legs then these will be perfect for you! The 910 cut comes in many washes as well! Buy these jeans at J Brand for $198.
