I am delighted that J Brand agrees with my prediction that skinny jeans are so yesterday! Even though J Brand became famous BECAUSE of their skinnies, they have now decided that we are ready for some new styles, new fits. A tendency that I have observed with many other brands as well. By no means am I suggesting you hide your skinnies and jeggings, or, worse, give them away. Skinnies will always be around. But the trend now is demanding looser styles, more like slouchy, bootcuts and straight leg jeans. (thinking…. maybe one day our daughters will look at the skinnies and jeggings and call those the “mom’s jeans”?) 😉
One of the new fits is the Ellis Straight Leg Jean. Remember, when J Brand first started, they offered us skinnies with 3 different kinds of leg openings. One of them was the straight leg. And this is what the Ellis is about.
The “Ellis” is J Brand’s new straight leg jean for the Fall season, designed for the modern woman looking for an easy aesthetic and a chic weekend look.
J Brand’s newest original fit, the “Ellis”, is a slimming straight leg jean cut with a low waist that can be worn rolled or stacked at the cuff . Crafted in super soft comfort stretch denim, the “Ellis” has a 30” inseam to create a more flattering appearance.
You can see above and below two of their new washes:
“Ellis” in Echo – A true light vintage wash with authentic wear pattern and subtle abrasion, finished with brown gold thread and polished copper shank
“Ellis” in Betrayal – A mid-dark indigo shade with authentic wear pattern, finished with brown gold thread and polished copper shank
