Hey there denim lovers! My name is Jannette and I am the newest reviewer here on Denimology. I am a working beach mama that loves the outdoors and fashion. I spent a large part of my career working in the Cosmetic and Denim industry as a buyer. You can trust my opinion when it comes to jeans! When I shop for premium denim, I look for jeans that will fit my lifestyle. I need to go from strappy wedges to flip flops within the same day. I’m a born and raised California girl and denim is a part of my daily wardrobe. Enough about me, let’s get down to business.
When my Parker Smith Girlfriend jeans arrived and I slipped them on, I was surprised by the fit. They looked like they would have the same fit as a boyfriend jean, but that is not the case at all. These jeans are like putting on your best girlfriend’s favorite worn in denim. They are sexy, comfortable and SO soft.
I don’t take buying jeans lightly, it’s an investment to me. I have the same pair of jeans I wore on my first date with my husband over 8 years ago. If I am buying a pair of jeans, they are going to be with me for a very long time. I rate jeans on the Four F’s: Fit, Feel, Function, and Fashion. As some of you may or may not already know, Parker Smith is a fairly new player in the premium denim arena. They believe you should embrace your body and the person you are. Women are beautiful, no matter what shape or size. This is evident in the fit and quality of Parker Smith jeans.
Fit: The Parker Smith Girlfriend in Old Blues Destruction Jeans has a mid rise waist with a front rise of 9.75” which is my favorite rise. The waistline offers some support which is so nice for moms. The fabric blend is 98% cotton and 2% Elastane. I typically wear a size 28 which is equivalent to a size 6. The inseam is 27”. The ankle hits mid calf but is adjustable, just add or take away a roll at the bottom. The back hugs around bum tighter than a boyfriend jean, giving this pair a sexy beachy look. There is a single button closure and zip fly along with the traditional 5-pockets.
Feel: These jeans are so soft, they remind me of my favorite cashmere scarf. The Parker Smith Girlfriend jean happens to be the most comfortable pair of jeans I own! The distressing is reinforced but still be cautious when sliding in. Sometimes a toe or two will wander off into the distressing and pull the hole open a little larger than you wanted. I’m so in love with these! You need them!
Function: This pair of jeans has it all when it comes to function. The Elastane allows for some stretch when bending over or chasing rugrats. The loose fit gives you room to breath and move around. You won’t want to take these off once they are one. I would rate these as comfortable as yoga pants….seriously!
Fashion: I love dressing up a casual jean with a cute boho top and wedges. The Parker Smith Girlfriend is a perfect dress up jean but I think they are truly meant to be worn with your favorite deep V-neck Tee and sandals. Either way you can’t go wrong.
Bottom Line: If you only buy one pair of Girlfriend or Boyfriend Jeans this season, it should be these. The quality, fit and color are the perfect light summer denim!
