This Week's Picks - J Brand
I would like to kick off this blog post by saying how much we appreciate all of our amazing customers, and to give a special thanks to all of you for making Saturdays Customer Appreciation event a huge success!! Without all of you none of this would be possible, so we hope you all know how much your continued support means to us!
Since we were so busy this past week gearing up for the big event we didn’t get a chance to feature too many of the new goodies in store so keep your eyes peeled for that over the next week, but for today I have a few of our favourite new denim arrivals from J Brand to share. By now I’m sure you all know how much I absolutely love denim, and to be honest I would say, it’s one of the things I am currently missing the most out of all the items in my wardrobe while being pregnant. I 100% percent believe that good premium denim can make such a difference in the appearance, and most importantly, comfort of your overall outfit. Not only do premium denim look and feel amazing, but it retains its shape and lasts for years if cared for properly.
You may not know this, but when it comes to jeans, the less you wash them the better. Now this may seem gross to some of you if you are used to washing your denim with every two or three wears, but trust me when I say if you are spending between $250-$400 on a pair of denim then you probably want them to last as long as possible, and because of the technology in this type of denim, they are designed to retain their shape without having to be “shrunk” back to their original size in the wash. Now of course if you have spilt on them, or they simply need to be washed, then by all means please wash your jeans haha.
Of course I could continue to go on and on about why everyone should at least invest in one pair of premium denim, but I think these new arrivals speak for themselves, so without further ado, let me introduce you all to my MUST HAVE pair of J Brand for the fall/ winter season, the “Leenah After Hours”-$325. You guys…I swear by this style, as I had nearly an identical pair from several seasons ago that I wore way more than I would like to admit. I literally wore the crap out of them because they just went with everything! The faded black colour is perfect for dressing up or dressing down, whether you’re rockin’ them with a white tee and chucks, or with one of our Lovestitch “Lingerie Lace Tanks”, a leather jacket and a killer pair of heels, these jeans will not disappoint you. I am 100% getting these for myself post baby, because I know that although they will cost me a pretty penny, I will get my money’s worth and more with this style. Before I move on to the next pair, I also wanted to point out that these are a high rise fit which is great for all those cropped style tops, for tucking in your shirt and showing off a statement belt, and for overall just creating a great shape, AND they have an unfinished hem that hits just above the ankle bone which is an absolute must for me when it comes to showing off a great pair of shoes!
For those of you looking for a more elevated pair of denim, and something that overall just has a dressier look, this next pair is going to be right up your ally. The “Maria” in galactic black retails for $345 and fits like your typical high rise skinny jean from J Brand but has a more faux leather appearance to them. These are perfect for a night out on the town, but could also be dressed up for work paired with a blouse, blazer and a pair of pumps. I absolutely love how Sabrina styled these with the Christopher Kon clutch and Black Suede “Aria Pump” both in a metallic pewter colour. Keep in mind these are a super slim fit with stretch and are made of 65% lyocell, 28% polyester, and 7% elastane.
The third and last pair of J Brand that we featured this week on our stories is another personal favourite of mine, because they are a little different than the style we are all used to wearing…aka skinny jeans, but they are so on trend and a super fun way to change up your look. If you have been keeping up to date with the “hot” trends over the past year than you know that a lot of designers are branching out and trying different cuts of denim from wider leg, to mini flares, and basically everything in between! I am actually a huge fan of this because as you all know, every single person has their own unique shape and size, which means that skinny jeans may not be the best fit for everyone and with the options of new (or should I say the return of styles from the 70s, 80s, and 90s) it gives us more variety and allows us to find what works best for our own bodies! Also, if you are on the hunt for a new pair of denim, then I highly recommend coming into Miss Boss and just being open minded. Do yourself a favour and try on ALL the styles, because you won’t know what works best for you until you try them on. You may even be surprised by what you end up loving the most!
The “Joan High Rise Crop” retails for $348 and features a high rise, wide leg, cropped fit, and a pop of colour with the gold stripe down the side of each leg. Have fun with these and style them with a really fun ankle boot or faux fur animal print jacket to really make a statement, or go for a more sleek look by pairing them with a fitted black turtleneck (tucked in or bodysuit), a black blazer, and our stunning Black Suede “Iona Mule” to complete the outfit.
Keep in mind, these are just a few of the many new styles we have received for fall denim and have MUCH more in store and online from both J Brand and DL1961!!!
