So…the big reveal…after much deliberation I surprised even myself by going for the Nobody jeans from Look Two (yesterday’s post). I have always been really loyal to Jbrand so even before I’d tried them on I was pretty sure which ones would end up coming home with me.
But how wrong I was. Typical of jbrand, the Aiden‘s were super soft with plenty of their signature stretch in them. The wash was perfect too. I definitely wanted a lighter, worn in look more than a smarter, darker denim.
But…after having almost dismissed the Nobody’s without even trying, these completely took me by surprise and came up trumps. They are 100% heavy duty denim with no stretch whatsoever. The best thing about this is that there is no sagging. They get better the more you wear them because they’re designed to fade over time.
Apart from the overall look of them, the pockets were larger and made the slouch a lot more flattering. The smaller pockets on the Jbrand Aiden’s made my backside look bigger!
I’m not exactly a shorty at 5’7 but I do have slightly, disproportionately short legs so I needed to give an extra roll on all the pairs to make sure I got a proper bit of ankle showing. I was also given an excellent tip by the stylist: Always make sure the waistband is exposed. Or you may be in danger of looking more mumsy than boyfriend…apparently!
This actually made a huge difference to look of every outfit. Having the top loose around the waist gave way too much bulk to this area.
