As most of you know I usually prefer wearing skirts & dresses over jeans, but I don’t think i’ve ever explained why. Thru the years I’ve always found it challenging to find a pair of jeans that fit my body type perfectly. In my case I have a narrow waist with wider hips, so if a pair of jeans fit me perfectly around the waist it would most likely be too tight around the hips, and vice versa. So when I do find a pair that is equally as comfortable as it is chic then it’s an instant winner for me.
I was recently asked by Express to try out a few of their jeans from their incredible Denim Lab. With 30 years of history one can only imagine the amount of styles they have in their collection with a ceaseless amount of shades & fades. And besides the fact that Express was my very first retail job in high school, I was quite excited & hopeful as I was browsing thru the entire collection!
I ended up choosing these Ankle Rolled Destroyed Boyfriends mainly because of the relaxed fit, which perfectly skims over my hips without constricting them. I also love the heavily faded and destroyed finish on these jeans, they are casually cool but can be glammed up with a sparkly sequin blazer & a pair of sexy stilettos.
I also wanted to let you guys know about a fun giveaway that Express is hosting. You can win either a $250 (4), $500 (2) or $1,000 (1) Express Gift Card (7 prizes total for the month of August) by simply taking a video (in Vine or Instagram) of your style, showcasing Express jeans and post to social using #EXPDENIMLAB .
We all have unique body types, and I think it’s important to embrace your natural shape by finding the perfect denim fit!
