Hi everyone. Susan here from StylePosts. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of these jeans ever since I saw a glimpse of them in some retail photo shoots for this season. I fell in love with J Brand’s Aoki jeans in the Obsessed wash as seen on Katherine Heigl, and they’ve literally been one of my all time favorite jeans ever since. So I was really excited to see J Brand come out with new washes in this cut, particularly interesting washes such as these. These are J Brand’s Aoki Jeans in Vintage Star.
The Aoki jean is a boyfriend style with a tighter fit. I realize that sounds ironic, but somehow J Brand is able to make the two styles come together in a way that really works. I love these jeans! They’re not super fitted like skinny jeans. Rather, they’re tight with a slight relaxed fit along the thighs and calves, allowing these jeans to feel as comfortable as most boyfriend jeans often do. However because of the tighter fit, they allow the rear to look more flattering, as boyfriend jeans often do not (in my experience).
The inseam is 27 ½ inches, which I chose to roll up three times giving them a 24 inch inseam. The leg opening is 11 inches, allowing you to wear them uncuffed as well which looks just as great. Either way, they’re a cropped jean and perfect for the spring and summer ahead. And the length works for just about any height. So they can be worn at mid calf for you taller gals or as a cropped jean for you petite ones. Either way, they look great. The rise measurement is at a comfortable 7 ½ inches. The style is a classic 5 pocket style with flattering, rear-lifting back pockets, which is classic of J Brand.
The wash is called Vintage Star, which is a medium blue wash with dark blue faded stars of different sizes throughout the jeans. The wash on these is adorable and so much fun to wear. And because the color is still blue throughout, they go with just about any color top and shoes.
Washing instructions are: Wash inside out in cold water, do not bleach, tumble dry low, remove promptly, do not iron.
