This weeks review is on a brand that has just launched by a celebrity we all know and love at DenimBlog, Jessica Simpson. She recently added denim to her fantastic Jessica Simpson collection and I was really surprised by what I found when I tried them!
At first, I thought to myself, since these jeans don’t cost very much, they can’t be very good as I really only trust the premium denim brands to get it right, but… I was very wrong. I was incredibly taken aback by the fit of these denim leggings actually, they fit like a glove and they are very skinny all the way down to the ankle. I didn’t think the pocket placement on these jeans would be in the right place either, again thinking they were too cheap for anyone to care about that, but they are. They are in the perfect position to give your butt that lifted and rounded look that everyone loves to achieve. The rise is a medium rise and a very good height for a jegging in my opinion. I also love that the logo on the back pocket is very simple, it’s subtle and not over the top as you can see.
The wash on these jeggings I can’t say much about as it is just a pure black. It’s not the blackest wash I have ever seen but it is very dark and of course, like every black jeans I own, they are a hair magnet, haha. The good thing about this wash though is it literally goes with anything and these jeans are exceptionally comfortable, you could sleep in them if you wanted, they honestly are that comfy. I love how they feel against the skin, they are beautiful. The tags on these jeans are incredibly pretty too! They are very detailed and very cute. I know nobody cares about the tags but I personally love it when a brand makes an effort right down to things like the tags, the bags etc, it shows they care about their product.
I decided to style these jeans a little different to the clothes I normally wear which are quite girly, I thought I would opt for a more edgier look as I don’t often wear black jeans. I like excuses to try new styles!
Now combined with the price tag of these jeans being only $49! Yep, $49! and the great attention to detail the Jessica Simpson team have given to these jeans, I would say they are a win win and you should definitely own a pair! They look like they are cut for real women with curves and that’s fantastic! Buy these jeans online at the Jessica Simpson site for only… $49! I still can’t get over that price, seriously!

Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2011 collection debuted at Paris Fashion Week. The collection featured masculine lines and angles but feminine details. Details like ombre, pastel colors and wide cuts softened the masculine elements.
The collection, inspired by Chinese ceramics, featured plenty of white, wide legged denim, which have been popular in Spring collections. Dries take on it, adding light coloring, gives it a fun and unique twist. Check out the images from the show below:
