The Perfect Jeans
I vaguely remember my first ever pair of jeans (sans toddler overalls; here I mean real big girl denim jean jeans): they were low-waisted, boot cut and had some form of haphazard embellishment on the back pockets…no regrets. Now more than a decade later I can only say that denim has exponentially become a staple in my wardrobe and something that I can no long put an outfit together without. I harbour no doubt that in due course I’ll be sitting in a hall introducing myself along the likes of “Hi, I’m Zoe and I’m a denim addict” (cue sympathetic reply “Hi, Zoe”).
This explains why I was pretty keen (to say the least) when I got the chance to style the new Lot 700 collection by Levis. Over the course of four days I wore four pairs of Lot 700 jeans (a.k.a the perfect excuse to wear nothing other than denim). I get a lot of questions about what I wear when I don’t feel like dressing up, especially when I’m going to uni (if you’re wearing uncomfortable jeans a two hour lecture can feel like eons). I hope this post answers said questions as I have no complaints; these jeans are flattering, lecture and food-baby friendly, and comfortable to the point where my mum has stolen a pair from me for herself (a first). I don’t blame her; aside from being really comfortable these are the only jeans that make me look like I kind of have a butt. The 721 High Rise Skinny and 711 Skinny styles feel like a second skin and I fell in love with the underrated 715 Boot Cut and 712 Slim (the lovechild of Skinny and Straight) and now I can’t wait to get my grubby hands on the 714 Straight/ 710 Super Skinny styles.
