I decided to pull out a fairly oldie but goodie for this review. These are J Brand’s Eve High Rise Jeans. I have to say, I’m pretty surprised that these jeans didn’t get as much attention as they deserved when they first came out. Perhaps it’s because they came out when the wide leg/high rise combination wasn’t at its peak. But regardless, these jeans are really unique and stylish, so the little attention these jeans received was surprising to me.
They’re really unique in style. Instead of J Brand’s classic 5 pocket styles, these have front and back faux patch pockets. And the pockets have a fun 6 row stitching design in a copper color that really stands out. The front button looks like shiny wood. These jeans as a whole have a real bohemian 70’s feel which I love!
These are a high rise jean with a 9 inch rise. These jeans are particularly flattering on tall women with long torsos. The color is called Della which is a dark blue color. They’re not super dark, like J Brand’s Pure wash or their Super Dark wash. But they’re on the darker side, and they do resemble raw denim because there’s no fading to them.
The inseam is 35 ½ inches. These are a wide leg jean where they open 18 inches down the inseam into a 22 inch leg opening. I’d say these run slightly small along the waist. The waistline is pretty snug. But I wouldn’t necessarily recommend going up in size unless you are in between sizes because these are very roomy all along the rest of the leg.
Washing instructions are: machine wash cold, tumble dry low, remove promptly, warm iron if needed.
These jeans were seen on Vanessa Hudgens, who although is very petite in height, looked fabulous in them. This goes to show, wideleg jeans aren’t necessarily only for tall girls.
