Distressed denim seems to be even more popular this year and is an absolute must have for every girl’s wardrobe. In Summer this grungy trend is super easy to pull off with shredded to practically nothing shorts, skirts and jackets but for Fall it becomes slightly trickier. The challenge is to translate it to cooler weather and beyond the relaxed environment of the beach making the 7 For All Mankind Slim Cigarette in Destroyed Rue De Lille the perfect answer!
I spotted these jeans on the 7FAM web-site right away and couldn’t wait to check them out in the actual store. After trying them on I liked the jeans even more. The Rue De Lille wash is beautiful! The shade of blue is bright and rich and goes with almost any color. The pronounced hand sanding and whiskering look authentic and give the jeans a chic vintage feel and the tastefully done distressing adds an edgy element for a touch of sex appeal. By the way, all of the holes have a backing that will protect your destroyed denim and its original look for at least a few washes.
The Slim Cigarette is a fairly new 7FAM fit – I believe it was introduced for the first time about a year ago. So if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet you definitely should as it’s one of my personal favorites across all brands. It is a perfectly balanced fit that combines the sexiness of a skinny silhouette and the sophistication of a tailored pant. Slim, curve-hugging from waist down it offers more room from the knee to a wider 12″ leg opening. The 30″ inseam is on the shorter side keeping the lines clean and offering plenty of options for footwear. The higher 6.75″ front rise is very flattering and looks great with a tucked-in blouse as well as with a trendy cropped top.
The fabric of this Slim Cigarette is a 98% cotton and 2% spandex blend. It is pretty stretchy (probably stretchier than you would expect from destroyed denim) and therefore provides a close to the skin fit and good shape recovery. Its medium (9.75 oz.) weight makes these jeans quite universal and suitable for any weather and season.
If you are feeling distressed denim this season the 7 FAM Slim Cigarette in Destroyed Rue De Lille is the way to go. These jeans are the perfect combination of a classy, stylish fit and hip, edgy detailing making this typically Summer trend effortless and appropriate for Fall/Winter.
