Hello darlings! I hope everyone’s enjoying some warmer weather out there. FL is hot Hot HOT right now, and so are these Rockstar Denim Cropped Welt Pocket Jeans in Red! I am a big fan of a red jean – they are such a statement piece, and cropped denim is a trend I am absolutely in love with right now as well. I was intrigued when I opened the package to find these jeans looking back at me. This was the first I’ve heard of this brand and after conducting a little research, I discovered it has a large celeb following – Halle Berry, Christina Applegate, and Rachel Bilson are just a few famous females that wear the brand.
At first glance, these jeans are the epitome of rockstar chic (yes, it is possible to have an outfit that is both edgy/rockstar-ish AND chic). The black splatter on the denim is a cool effect, in my opinion. It takes the edginess up a notch, and so do the slit pockets on the front and the zippers on the sides (another feature I love on denim). The jeans came with a big clear sticker on the leg that said: “Trend Alert: Spring 2011. Giving cropped pants a sexy & feminine aura with a careless attitude. Wear them on the hips, skin tight with flats or heels.” I couldn’t agree more with both of those statements. Cropped pants ARE a huge trend right now, as well as denim in an array of colors. The look of these jeans is without a doubt sexy, but effortless. Plus, these jeans would look great with many different shoe options.
The fit of the jean is perfection, and very true to size. I wear a size 27 and I was able to pull these jeans on and off with ease. They were not constricting at all, yet they felt snug from my hips through my legs. Had the fit of these jeans been slouchy and not snug, the look would be sloppy and definitely not chic. I have a good feeling that these jeans would hold their fit quite well, and not stretch out after hours of wear.
I pulled the side zippers up a tad because I liked the flared-out-look it gave the bottom of the jeans. I paired them with sexy nude heels to counter the edginess of the jeans, and a black basic top to keep the look minimal and the focus on the jeans. I can easily see these jeans paired with some rad ankle boots, or even a pair of chucks. When paired with a vintage t-shirt and leather jacket, the look can be very literal (edgy without a doubt). Pair it with a basic top for a minimal look, or a blazer for a dressed up look (I think that would look so fab!).
All and all, I’m a big fan of this pair of jeans and I’d love to try some other styles by the Rockstar brand. I think this pair is a breath of fresh air. It’s very unique and definitely stands out in the denim world today. If you’re looking to shake things up in the jean department – give these babies a shot. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
