Hi readers and denim fanatics!! I’m back reviewing one of my all-time favorite brands, JOE’S Jeans! I was so excited to review the JOE’S Jeans Audrey Retro Boyfriend Ankle in Kasey Jeans. As you already know, I’m a huge fan of boyfriend jeans. I was shocked to shuffle through my closet rack of denim and not find one single boyfriend ankle. I did however count 11 pairs of JOE’S Jeans, I think I have a problem (but it’s one I’m not willing to change). By the way, I hope all of you are hanging up your denim! Have you ever pulled out a pair of jeans buried at the bottom of your drawer that you have forgotten about for several months or even years? It’s a sure way to give all of your fabulous jeans the proper wear they deserve.
First off, JOE’S Jeans ships their denim in the most beautiful black embossed box. As you open this gorgeous box, you are hit with a wave of beachy coconut aroma while unwrapping the black tissue that surrounds your new pair of jeans! I’m all about presentation and Joes had me at black box.
My pick was the JOE’S Jeans Audrey Retro Boyfriend Ankle in Kasey. It is a jet black denim that can easily go from a casual day with friends to the executive boardroom (which is where I wore mine). As a working mom, I wear many hats in a given day. I can say the same thing for my jeans. I tend to save my more relaxed fitting boyfriend jeans for running errands or walking on the beach. These are not that type of boyfriend…
Fit: The JOE’S Audrey Retro Boyfriend Ankle Jeans in Kasey has a mid rise waist. It is incredibly comfortable. Imagine your most beloved pair of work slacks and they married your favorite pair of jeans. This is the Audrey! The blend is 98% cotton and 2% elastane. They have a 26” inseam. I am 5’4 and these hit at the bottom of my ankle. There is enough fabric that I am able to roll them up to wear with booties. There is a single button closure and zip fly along with the traditional 5-pockets.
Feel: As I mentioned above these are a very soft jet black denim but they have enough weight to them that will keep them from wearing thin or tearing. JOES Jeans uses the finest quality denim. For those of you that shop for quality, this is a brand you need to sink your pocket book into.
Function: The boyfriend aspect of these jeans allows for a little wiggle room. You can really move in these without feeling any restriction and the 2% elastane allows for a little stretch. These jeans are incredibly functional. You could literally run an executive meeting on your feet, ride your bike at lunch, pick up your kids from soccer practice and go out to a concert in these with total ease. #RethinkYourDenim
Fashion: The JOE’S Jeans Audrey Retro Boyfriend Ankle in Kasey is sleek and sophisticated. It’s a gorgeous ankle slack that has taken on a new life of denim. I work in a professional environment and pairing these with a button up shirt, belt and heels was not only incredibly comfortable it was very professional. Not one person could tell I had on jeans.
Bottom Line: This multi-functional chic boyfriend ankle belongs in every woman’s closet. They are functional, comfortable and should be considered a staple. You will reach for these far more than you will any other pair of denim.
