Hey denim fans! The summer season is almost upon us, and we’ve already been feeling the hot hot heat here in Florida! Speaking of hot, I have a HOT denim review for you today; featuring MET in Jeans Angel Jeans with Gold Chains. If you aren’t familiar with the brand MET in Jeans, they are a popular Italian denim brand worn by countless celebs, such asKate and Pippa Middleton, Kylie Minogue, Elle Macpherson, and Naomi Watts. Denimology recently featured MET in Jeans HERE and HERE, and let’s just say these jeans are far from ordinary. These jeans just ooze sex appeal from their super low waists, distressing, and chains, this brand is not afraid to be bold and sexy. Although the majority of their styles are eye-catching, the brand does carry denim that is more low-key for those customers looking for a more classic look.

At first glance these jeans seemed a little too flashy for my own person style, but then I noticed that the chains on the back pockets and the sparkly brand label were all detachable. I think that feature is great because it allows you to have two different styles in one jean, depending on the look you’re going for. This style is very unique and unlike any other jean I own. I like to have a wide variety of denim styles in my closet, and these distressed skinny jeans with back pocket chains are fun and unique. Although I don’t see myself wearing these as often as I wear my other, more classic styles of jean, I definitely think I’d reach for these when I want to mix up my look for a night out. I would wear these jeans with a tee (like I’m wearing in these shots) with a nice blazer and heels.

Since these jeans are made in Italy, I knew they were going to run small. I went a size up (a size 28 to be exact), and the jeans fit me like a glove. They are 98% cotton and 2% elastane, which give the jean just a smidgen of stretch. The inseam is 174 cm, waist is 69 cm, and the hips are 93 cm. They are definitely lower rise, which is something I am not real used to, but they were still comfortable to wear and they stayed on my hips (didn’t creep down at all). They have 5 pockets and a 2 button closure. The distressing starts at the high thigh/hip and ends at the shins.

These jeans might not be very practical, but they will definitely turn heads and get you noticed. Now that I’ve tried this brand, I’d love to try a darker wash in a more sleek style with less distressing. What do you think about the brand? Are you a fan of distressed denim? What about denim with chains? Would love to read your thoughts!

  1. I’m a ‘classic’ clean-look-jeans type of girl and never would have tried the distressed look however, lo and behold, I tried a pair of the MET jeans I saw reviewed on here last winter (with the zips and rips) and I did a double take…they looked awesome! Everyone complimented me on them and it gave me, a late-thirty-something, the confidence to finally let out my inner wild-child…I love MET jeans and I’m definitely a convert to brand…But back to your questions! These jeans look awesome on you and I love the way you have styled them…great day time look which could segue to night easily by layering over the sleeveless vest; they look classy and sexy but not trashy or cheap, the gold hardware, which I thought would have been OTT, actually fits the overall cool-girl ‘ready to rock’ vibe these jeans give off. The wash is ideal for summer and my conclusion is…these jeans are hot, I love them, would buy them and you don’t need to be a fashionista to wear them!

  3. If you think you know all the great jean brands out there, you were wrong. I remember going to my fav store to get my usual brand and the sales person offered me to try MET. I could not believe how confortable these jeans were, and not only that, but make my body looks incredible. They give you an instant lift! I ended up buying 3 pairs: in color, regular blue and the bejeweld.
    they opened their first store in the US, in Miami Beach, 826 Lincoln Road.
    You can find there not only the whole jeans colleccion, but MET entire line, that includes beautiful tops, dresses and accesories!!!!!!
    I am a MET FAN FOR LIFE!!!!!!!!!
