Hey lovelies!! I hope everyone is gearing up for spring – I know I am! Bring on the warm sun and weekends spent at the beach! The jeans I’m reviewing for you today are the perfect hue for spring – they are the J Brand 811 Neon Mid-Rise Skinny Leg in Neon Blue. Although they are called “Neon Blue,” I would say they look more powder blue or sky blue. When I think “neon,” I think really bright, and I’d say these are more pastel.
These jeans are 98% cotton and 2% lyrca. They have nice stretch and are super soft to the touch. This jean is more like a legging because they have faux front pockets. I’m fond of the 8.5″ rise and the 29″ inseam. They are the perfect length and they sit slightly above the hips. They are quite comfy and maintain their fit throughout a day’s wear. Although I wasn’t 100% smitten with the way they looked on me from the rear (I don’t feel that they flattered my bum), I was pleased with the overall fit and feel.
I paired these jeans with a pretty vintage blouse that had hints of blue that matched the blue in these jeans perfectly. I think these pants would look just as great with a neutral top and sandals, or even a simple tee and blazer with heels for an evening out!
Overall I’d say these jeans are undeniably perfect for spring and summer! The blue hue just screams fun in the sun! I would recommend trying these on before purchasing, just to be sure that you are fond of the overall fit on your body. They were true to size for me, but as I stated above, I wasn’t 100% pleased with the way they looked on me from the backside.
What’s your take on neon or bright colored denim? Are you a fan??
