J Brand is no doubt one of today’s most celeb-worn denim brands and I’ve always wondered what exactly has made it so popular. Recently I received a pair of jeans to review and now I can finally solve this mystery and see for myself why they are so special. I lucked out to get the 801 Woodgrain Printed Mid-Rise Leggings, I say “lucked out” because they are really-really cool!
Needless to say that nowadays, in the sea of prints that is offered, it is difficult to be original and come up with something different from everyone else. That’s why the unusual and unique look of the Woodgrain Skinnies is so refreshing. But even the greatest idea is nothing without the right execution and in this case the J Brand print truly looks realistic!
Jokingly I call myself a “skinny” expert – about 80% of my denim wardrobe is in this silhouette. I really do know a good skinny fit and J Brand’s 801 is definitely a great one. It was designed to be like a second skin and it absolutely is. Very slim fitting, these jeans contour your body and give you amazing shape. The medium 8″ rise helps to elongate the leg line and also creates a super-flat and toned looking stomach.
The fabric that J Brand calls Power Stretch Denim is not typically how we think of “denim”- it is a bit thinner and therefore works perfectly for a legging. The blend of 98% cotton and 2% spandex has an astounding level of elasticity that helps maintain shape throughout the day and also provides comfort with such a close to the skin fit.
If all of J Brand’s jeans are so cool and made as well as my 801 Woodgrain Printed Leggings then their great popularity is no surprise. Versatile thanks to the simple classic silhouette, these skinnies are perfect for everyday casual but chic wear and the subtle while still edgy print in muted warm-tone colors will beautifully complement your Fall wardrobe.
