Mavi was founded in Istanbul in 1991 and demonstrates their Mediterranean influences through the detailing in their denim. Mavi is sold in over 50 countries and is loved by many celebrities. Being half Lebanese, I feel a connection to this brand and am excited that I get to review them. This is the first brand that I have come across so close to my roots. Their philosophy is to make perfect fitting jeans through their fusion of Mediterranean detailing and contemporary styles. Keep reading for my Mavi Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in LT Shaded Glam Denim Review.
The Mavi Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in LT Shaded Glam is a mid-rise super skinny ankle jean. They are cropped and end above the ankle. Obviously, they do not look cropped on me so I added a few pictures with them cuffed. The front rise is 8 inches, the back rise is 14 inches, and the knees are 13.5 inches. The inseam is 28” so if you are short like me, you can wear them as skinny jeans or you can cuff them like I did. Either way, I think they look awesome! They are 98% cotton and 2% elastane and might I add, super comfortable! I usually don’t like to hang around the house in jeans because they are not flexible for household activities however I found myself not wanting to take them off. Very easy to move and bend in (especially for running around after a toddler!).
I wear a size 25 and I think I could probably fit into a 24 because they are slightly loose in the front and I found myself pulling them up at times. Also, they are not really tight on my legs (as a super skinny jean would be) but I think they are more comfortable when there is a little room to breathe. My favorite part of these Mavi Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in LT Shaded Glam is the detailing on the bottom which has slight distressing and an unfinished hem. They are unlike any denim that I own and I literally could not decide which shoes to wear with them because they look good with EVERYTHING!
One cool fact that is mentioned on the website is they only weigh 11.5 ounces. Yes, you read that correctly, they weigh less than a pound! With a lightweight material such as this, I could wear these jeans in the upcoming summer months without worrying about being a sweaty mess in the humidity. I got so many compliments when I wore these jeans to dinner with friends. They had no idea they were supposed to be cropped! 😉
To sum it up, I love these jeans! Everyone is built differently and we shouldn’t get hung up on looking exactly like the models on the websites. As long as you feel confident in what you are wearing, the jeans speak for themselves.
