If you’re looking for a denim brand that offers a fabulous fit, large range of sizes, lots of leg styles and a variety of both trendy and classic colors, look no further than “Not Your Daughter’s Jeans”. I gushed about this brand in the post “White Jeans and Street Art” and now I’m going to gush some more. NYD jeans have taken a lot of the worry out of jean shopping. “Worry?” you might ask yourself. How could jean shopping be worrisome? Well just as some women fear bathing suit shopping I fear trying on jeans. Historically these fly front denim pants have looked bad on me. There’s always something wrong with the fit in the rear end and I find the muffin-top thing as upsetting as it is unflattering. Add to this all the different brands, cuts, fabrics, lengths, styles, prices and colors available these days and find myself completely overwhelmed. NYD jeans offers lots of colors and leg styles but the cut through the hips and waist is the same throughout the clothing line. This it takes out one big piece of the worry. I know when I grab a pair of NYD jeans that I’m going to fit in a size 8 or 10 and they will look and fit the same way every time. No more “I love this color and cut but the super low-rise looks absurd” situations or concern over how the jeans will look once they’ve stretched out after an hour of wear.
This is my second pair of NYD jeans. It filled a vacant spot in my wardrobe where the “fabulous dark denim jeans” were supposed to live. Before discovering NYD jeans I was a fan of the very expensive, very tight, J Brand jeans. I had two fabulous pairs of them in dark denim, but they no longer have the same sexy fit now that I weigh a few pounds less than when I bought them.
Jeans are very much in style here in Los Angeles. I’d say a good 50% of the women on the street are wearing jeans or denim shorts. This phenomenon occurs year round because the warm, dry, climate is pretty much perfect for jeans. It’s also a very casual place, and denim has that laid-back chic that’s so in vogue here in the sunshine state. After years of avoiding the trend I’m finally embracing it like my fellow Angelenos, and it feels great! Still, I like getting a little dressed up, so I wore my new jeans with a classic cotton trench, matching beige platform sandals and a button down cotton blouse.
I would love to tell you that Not Your Daughter’s Jeans was showering me with fabulous free jeans to present on my blog but the truth is I purchased these myself. They have not paid me for this endorsement. I just love the line and want to share my enthusiasm with you.
