With Coachella upon us, I wanted to ring in the season with a pair of jeans that are festival appropriate.  I love all of the different personalities and styles that show up at Coachella each year.  Seeing the various fashion statements is almost as entertaining as the music itself.  The bohemian styles of Coachella reminded me of these jeans.  These are Current/Elliott’s Stiletto Jean in Dirty Loved Hippie Patchwork Destroy.

It’s probably pretty apparent by now that I’m quite a fan of Current/Elliott.  Their Stiletto jean is one of my favorites.  However, of all the Stiletto jeans I’ve tried (and we’ve reviewed quite a few on our site), they seem to vary a bit in fit.  Some fit ever so skin tight such as the Stiletto in Indigo Polka Dot or in White Star.  Whereas, some of their other Stiletto jeans such as the Sanddollar wash  or this pair in particular run a little more on the relaxed side.  And with a little wear, they stretch out even further.  I’d say these run about a size large, which is pretty typical of most Current/Elliott jeans.

Made of 90% cotton, 6% polyester, and 4% elastane, these have a little bit of stretch to them.  They feel very rugged and sturdy.  And I love the wash.  Dirty Loved Hippie Patchwork Destroy is the name, and they have patchwork throughout the front side of the legs.  The patchwork patterns will be different from pair to pair, making these truly one of a kind. The only downfall to these jeans is the location of the hole on the right knee.  It’s located right at the knee, so any slight bend of the knee tears the hole even further. But if you don’t mind the busted knee, then it might be ok.  The color is a very vintage faded jean that appears as if it was once a dark blue denim that has been worn and washed over a long period of time.  So there’s fading throughout the jeans in all the right places.

The leg opening is 10 inches.  Although these are considered a skinny jean, they’re slightly on the relaxed side.  The rise is 8 inches, and the inseam is 28 inches.  I love the length on these because I can wear them with any length heel.

Washing instructions are:  Machine wash cold, do not bleach, tumble dry low, iron low heat.

    Could I ask how tall you are? In some pictures you seem short but in others tall, but always equally lovely ^^
    Just want to know cuz I was thinking about buying some flares but thought I might be too short and then saw you wearing them and looking good. What do you think?

      Hi Noelle. I’m about 5’5″.
      Flares seem like they’d work best on taller people. But if you wear them with the right shoes (i.e., heels or wedges to give you some height), they can still work for “less tall” women as well. Hope this helps. 🙂
