Citizens of Humanity
This weeks denim review is on another pair of Citizens of Humanity jeans, this time their Avedon Velour Skinny Pants in Butterscotch. This is actually my first time wearing mustard coloured jeans. Even though I love the shade, it’s always been a bold one that I haven’t had first on my list to try. I do love it though!
The Avedon fit, like I have mentioned before, is my favourite cut from the brand. It’s got a great low to mid rise with a very skinny fit on the legs and a very flattering back pocket placement. I find it to be a very flattering cut in general amongst many other brands, this is why it’s probably their most popular cut they have. I would definitely recommend trying the Avedon cut if it’s your first time trying out Citizens of Humanity, you wont be disappointed! I took my regular size of 27 in these and they fit me just fine so they definitely run true to size. The signature stitching on the back pockets is also very minimal, you can see it there, but the thread blends in nicely to the rest of the jeans.
This weeks denim review is on the new Citizens of Humanity Rocket High Rise Leatherette skinny jeans in Black. I have reviewed an older pair of coated black jeans from the brand in the Avedon cut 2 years ago (which you can see here) and I can say that these are definitely a lot different. I love this pair so much more!
The fit of these is something that I am not entirely used to trying as they are a high rise skinny. The rise actually measures at 9.5 inches and I included a gallery image so you can see just how high it is. It’s a lot higher than I like to wear my jeans as I prefer them to be around 7 inches, however since the weather is colder now, I’m wearing more longer tops and jackets so it covers up the rise perfectly. Also since it’s this high, it actually doesn’t give you any muffin top or lumpy bumpy bits so it does work out quite well. The inseam is too long for me, it measures at almost 31 inches, which is quite long for a 10″ leg opening, so it’s perfect for the taller ladies who want a super skinny coated jean instead of an ankle version. They don’t look too long in the photos though as I did tuck the hem underneath so they weren’t as bunched up.
January Jones and her son Xander were spotted having lunch with friends at Houston’s in LA. January has been a fan of Citizens of Humanity lately! Earlier in the month she was spotted out in a pair of the brand’s velvet jeans. This time she wore a pair of slouchy fit Dylan jeans in Seychelles wash.
January has such versatile style, I think she pulls these jeans off really well. They look very comfortable for a casual day out running errands and I like how she dressed them up with an embroidered blouse and quilted leather bag.
The good thing about these jeans is that they come with a longer inseam, so they are perfect for the taller ladies like Karolina. I own them in black and they bunch up quite a bit at the ankles on me, however they fit Karolina perfectly! They are also much more shiny than their previous coated jeans. What do you think of them?
