The beauty of black jeans is that they can be worn for many occasions. They’re easy to dress from day to evening, and they’re a classic that really don’t go out of style. Keeping black jeans black can be the tricky part. So what I appreciate about these jeans is that the faded look actually adds to the beauty of these jeans. These are Rag & Bone/JEAN Skinny Jeans in Rock With Holes.
My favorite part of these jeans is the color. The wash name is Rock With Holes which is a black wash that’s faded for a vintage/destroyed feel, and they have distress and holes all along the front. I’m normally not a huge fan of this much distress in my jeans. But because they’re such a dark color, the distress looks less obvious. They have an edgy look to them, which I love. My only concern is the location of the holes on the knees. With the amount of leg bending that I do throughout my day, I’m always leery about jeans with holes on the knees. Over time, these holes may get really blown out with wear.
These jeans are also extremely comfortable. Most of the time, when I get a new pair of jeans, there’s typically a “breaking in” period. But these jeans felt broken in from the moment I put them on. Made of 98% cotton and 2% polyurethane, these jeans have a nice comfortable stretch to them. Although they’re skinny jeans, they don’t feel overly constricting because of the amount of elasticity to the material. These jeans run true to size.
The inseam is 29 ½ inches. The rise measurement is 8 inches, which is a nice medium rise. These fit snug all along the leg and thighs and come to a tight leg opening of 10 inches. The style is a classic 5 pocket style with Rag & Bone’s signature RB initials stitched on the back right pocket.
Washing instructions are: machine wash cold inside out, do not bleach, hang dry.
These jeans are a celebrity favorite, worn by Alison Mosshart, Emma Roberts, Ashley Benson, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, and many more.

I’d been waiting for these shorts to come out for some time now. They’re from Current/Elliott’s summer collection, and I’m so excited that they are finally available. And the timing couldn’t be more perfect as the heat wave here continues. These are Current/Elliott The Boyfriend Short in Summer Love.
I’ve mentioned before that I am always on the hunt for the perfect pair of shorts. I absolutely love the styles that Current/Elliott comes out with every summer, particularly their boyfriend shorts. Unfortunately, the length is a little short for my taste. So I tried something new this time and went up in size to see if that might help. I think going up in size was the right choice for me. These shorts run true to Current/Elliott’s sizing, but my preference in fit for shorts is quite different than my jeans. While I prefer my jeans to fit nice and tight, I feel the complete opposite about my shorts. I prefer them to fit relaxed and loose.
The wash name is Summer Love with Embroidery, which is a medium blue dirty denim color with dark blue embroidered flowers along the front. I love fun embroidered designs like this. They have a nice 60’s hippie vibe. There is some distress along the front and a little on the back as well. These shorts would have been so perfect for Coachella, and I’m quite sure we would have seen much more of them had they been available earlier.
The rise is 9 inches, but since I went up in size, they rest on my hips and feel slightly longer. The entire length of the shorts is 10 ½ inches. The front pockets peak through the bottom hem. The leg opening is 22 inches with a frayed hem. Made of 90% cotton, 6% polyester, and 4% elastane, these are very soft and feel like they’ve been worn in for you already. They do stretch out a decent amount after a little wear, so keep that in mind when choosing your size.
Washing instructions are: hand wash cold inside out, do not bleach, lay flat to dry, cool iron.
