IDA Rizzo High-Top Ankle Skinny Jeans in Night Fever Review

“Donna Ida” is a London-based string of denim boutiques and online store that has been nominated for many awards and was named by Telegraph as one of the 50 best boutiques in Britain. One of its special features is the Denim Clinic where you can watch videos by the founder and owner Donna Ida Thornton that will help you find your perfect jean. From the clips about fits and how they work with different body types and styling tips to the step-by-step tutorials on how to measure yourself and how to care for your denim this Clinic answers many important questions. Donna Ida has also applied her expertise and passion for denim by creating her own IDA label that is “a little bit lady, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll and a lot of chic.”  The IDA Rizzo High-Top Ankle Skinny Jeans in Night Fever are one of the pieces from the brand’s SS’14 collection and I am very happy to review them for you.

I love exploring brands that are new to me and was absolutely thrilled about working on this review. IDA sounded very promising and I definitely had pretty high expectations. When I received these skinnies I wasn’t disappointed – I really liked them A LOT! Truly minimalistic, without any bells and whistles they somehow are still exciting. Is it the super soft, light-weight denim that feels so incredible on your skin? Or is it the elegant and sophisticated touches like simple gold button and rivets and tobacco-shade, semi-contrasting stitching? No doubt it is the combination of all of these things and more that make these jeans special. The Night Fever wash with its deep indigo shade is classy and chic and looks particularly beautiful in this silhouette. It also makes the jeans ultra-versatile and so easy to dress up or dress down.

Rizzo is an excellent fit which many women will love. It features a true high-rise with the waistband sitting at your natural waist right on the belly button level which visually gives you an extra inch or two in height. Unlike some high-waisted pants these jeans don’t flatten your butt but in fact give it a nice rounded shape. Ankle length 29” inseam with the narrow 10” leg opening is another flattering combo that also gives this style a refined preppy vibe.

As I mentioned earlier Rizzo is made of light-weight denim that makes it so perfect for summer. With the content of 70% cotton, 14% polyester, 14% viscose and 2% elastane it is unbelievably stretchy and soft which couldn’t be any better for a high-rise jean. While similar styles are often not the most comfy this fabric offers you the ultimate comfort when you wear them.

I always get nervous when getting jeans from abroad as it is not so easy to swap them if something doesn’t work out. Fortunately the IDA Rizzo in my usual 24 fit great so if you decide to check them out for yourself go with the size that you would typically wear.

Girls, the IDA brand is really worth checking out as their Rizzo High-Top Ankle Skinny Jeans in Night Fever are quite fabulous! And while you’re at it don’t forget to visit the Denim Clinic – you’ll absolutely love it!

I am the EU contributor and product reviewer for Denimology. From the time I was 5 years old browsing through my first fashion magazine I knew I wanted to be in this industry. While working as a Merchandiser at Gloria Jeans, the largest denim manufacturer and retailer in Russia, I discovered my passion for denim. It fascinated me then and years later it fascinates me even more. Every day I learn and discover something new and exciting about denim and am thrilled to do it hand in hand with all of you!
