I’m still checking out the wide flare leg trend and after the 7FAM Georgias and the TRBJ Morgan Flares, I decided the TRBJ Gemmas were next. It comes in a clean blue with light fading wash called Chattanooga. It has a zip fly and is considered a mid-rise, which I would much rather prefer then the high rise. I love that these 70’s inspired wide flare leg has the TRBJ hippie inspired Budda patch at the waist as opposed to their usual Buddha patch. TRBJ is all about the details.
The Gemmas have patch front pockets and a zip fly which help to keep the look flat and clean in the front. It comes with a 2”cuff which is much thicker than normal hems, but it complements the overall look. The back pockets are the flat back pockets with the iconic ‘U’ embroidery that create a nice silhouette to the backside. The mid-rise flattens the look a little bit but not as much as a jean with a higher rise.
The Gemmas are very close to the 7FAM Georgias but for me the Gemmas win it. I love that the Gemmas have 1% Spandex that gives the jeans a firm stretch as opposed to the Georgias which are 100% cotton. The Georgias are very comfortable and will stretch with wear but the Gemmas hug my body more and I like the feel of that. The washes are very different so there really is no comparison. Both washes are beautiful. Also, the Gemmas have a smaller break at the knee (14”) and a smaller leg opening (22”) compared to the Georgia’s which were 16” at the knee break and 24” at the leg opening. I think that makes a big difference in the look of the legs. What I like about the wide flare leg trend is that it really helps to create a lean and long leg. Take advantage of this look and pair these with your favorite heels/wedges/platforms so that the flares just barely sweep the ground when you walk. It creates a very dramatic step. It’s also nice for a change to wear a higher rise and get that little extra support every now and then.
If you are true to size then I would recommend getting your normal size, but if you are in between sizes then I recommend going with the smaller size due to the stretch in these jeans.
Now as far as celebrity spotting is concerned, I don’t know who is wearing these. I didn’t buy these because I saw them on a celebrity, but rather because I just thought it was cute when I saw them 🙂
