Each year I usually do my top picks when it comes to jeans. This includes the pairs I have been living in for months and the pairs that are my go to when it comes to denim! This time around I have about 8 pairs that I wear regularly and I have listed them below! You may notice that none of these include prints or patterns, they are all classics, except for one burgundy pair, but I also class them as very easy to wear and versatile.
1 – AG Adriano Goldschmied The Legging in 12 Years Dwight
These are my gorgeous AG Jeans that I bought from Shopbop a couple of months ago. I’m so glad I got them because I have been living in them ever since, they are my go to for a medium blue wash which is detailed and pretty. Every time I look at them I just get excited by how pretty the whiskering and fading is. They did an amazing job with these jeans and they are the best AG Jeans I have ever tried! You can read my review on these jeans here.
Kim Kardashian was seen arriving at the Four Seasons Hotel in Miami, Florida with her best friend Jonathan Cheban (who was wearing Diesel). I’ve heard rumours that Kim was there as the hotel has a plastic surgery office on floor three, but I have no idea if she’s having anything else done or just staying over.
Getting back to Kim’s outfit, she chose to wear her Bleulab Detour Leggings with the French Chalk side showing, a black jacket, a white t-shirt and some black heels. I always find that Kim’s outfits are constantly monochromatic now, we never see her in bright colours anymore or regular blue denim. She used to get caught in ripped blue jeans every week! I hope she might decide to wear them again soon as she loved her JET Jeans. You can buy Bleulab reversible jeans online at SINGER22.com.

Kim has been toning her style down a bit (Kanye’s influence?) but I think this is a good mix of her old style without being too over the top. I definitely think the jeans keep all of the dressier pieces a bit more relaxed.
I wanted to do something a little different for this weeks denim review and with these jeans, I got to! I got sent the Bleulab Detour Skinny jeans in Martinique by the brand to review and I thought I would show their versatility by styling them 2 different ways as well as reviewing them.
I did review a pair of Bleulab jeans last year, but those were a coated pair while these are not coated at all. I didn’t get on very well with the coated skinnies last time because I could only wear them with the coated side on the outside, having it inside out with it touching my skin was really really itchy and I couldn’t cope with the sensation, so they didn’t really work as a reversible jean for me. These do though! They are just as comfy either way out and I love that!
This Martinique wash is really good for all year round! I wanted to show that in a way where I styled the light blue with a summer outfit and the dark blue with a more autumn/winter outfit. These are definitely a pair you can take through any season for many years. My favourite side is the light blue as I love the fading down the front of the legs, the subtle whiskering at the lap area and just the bright blue intense colour all around. I definitely prefer it to the dark blue side. It is useful to have the dark side though, it comes in handy when you need to dress up and when a lighter blue denim is not as appropriate as dark blue for whatever occasion you are attending. I love the fact you literally get 2 different pairs of jeans in one with these, it’s half the luggage and half the space!
The fit of these is wonderful! They are one of the most stretchiest jeans I own, but the denim is thick too so they are really comfortable and feel durable. I took a 27 in these which is my usual size so I would say they are true to size, however when you hold them up, they look really tiny, but with the amount of stretch in them, they expand well. The back pockets are nice as you can see and they are super skinny all the way down. The one thing that distinguishes Bleulab from other brands though is the thick inseams and outerseams. I would prefer them to be a little more subtle, but I’m not sure if that’s possible due to the reversing.
For the details of Bleulab, I mentioned before that the zipper flips all the way around and the button is double sided. But you can see my video of those parts of the jeans by clicking here, so you can see what I mean. They are the same on each pair of Bleulab jeans, so even though that wash is different to this one, it’s exactly the same concept. But I would definitely recommend that you get a pair of Bleulab jeans if you can! They are so comfortable, perfect for travelling and wearing for long hours and you get 2 pairs of jeans in one! So essentially, for the price, you are getting a great deal and the way they work is amazing! Have you tried Bleulab yet? They are one of my favourite brands! I get excited when I think about them and how simple/easy the idea behind it is, but so cool at the same time! Buy these jeans online here at RevolveClothing.com.
