Paige Denim definitely has a soft spot in my heart and closet for numerous reasons and one of them is no doubt their trendsetting designs. With that said, this brand knows exactly how to translate runway looks into everyday life without losing their essence. The Cara Zip Skinny is the perfect execution of interpreting a possibly tricky trend into a super stylish while also very wearable and versatile piece. The subtle, “no-shock” contrast of two indigo shades combined with a simple, minimalistic design allows you to outfit them with various prints and color combos. The ankle side zippers break up the blue and visually highlight the color-block effect without overdoing it.
Cara is one of Paige’s newest fits and I couldn’t wait to test it out; of course it didn’t disappoint J In fact it exceeded all of my expectations! This medium rise slim silhouette is slightly roomier than a legging fit and is curve hugging while not overly tight. That really helps to avoid excessive tension in the over-the-knee seam on the front panel. The inseam is shortened to 29” so even if you are not very tall you can wear these jeans with side zips fully closed. If you chose to do so the slightly wider leg opening of 10.25” will eliminate any possible discomfort from the rough metal rubbing or pushing on your side ankle bone which can often happen with narrower hems.
The fabric of these jeans is a light-weight 8 oz. denim with fantastic elasticity and an incredibly soft hand feel. It is a blend of 92% cotton, 2% elastane and 6% EME which until now was completely foreign to me. After a bit of Google research I figured out that EME or Elastomultiester is a subcategory of polyester that provides low to moderate stretch in textiles without using spandex. So now you guys know too 🙂
So far I haven’t had any problems with Paige Denim’s sizing and this time was no exception. My regular size fits perfectly, tight enough while also very comfortable.
The Paige Cara Zip Ultra Skinny jeans in Coastal are a great choice if you guys would like to try color-blocking in denim if haven’t done so already. These skinnies definitely inspired me to rock out this trend 🙂 What about you? Are you feeling it this Spring???
