As promised, I wanted to work on a denim roundup and I was given some great suggestions on brands to try. The first one up, Charlotte Russe. They have been on my list to try for while, so when they reached out, I immediately asked for a pair of jeans. On their site, they have two types of high waisted jeans, the Refuge and the High Waisted Skinny. I went with the Refuge.
Now in denim, I wear a 16, but with Charlotte Russe being a junior plus brand, I sized up to a 18. The jean is a great addition to your closet. They are stretchy and made of a good weight. They were thick thigh friendly, and I was comfortable in these all day. These are definitely a true high waisted jean, and there was no roll down. I have encountered that some jeans are not a true high waist, or the jeans roll down throughout the day. Another pet peeve is when you get a pair of jeans and by the end of the day they stretch out and become slouchy. Not these. They passed all of my tests! Here’s the best part, denim is buy one get one for $12.50! You can get two pair of jeans for $50!! Can’t beat that deal.
With a great pair of black skinnies, you can wear anything, so I wanted to show some love to this great houndstooth moto. I’ve never shied away from a good moto, and in a plaid- this was a must have for me. Since I want to wear this deep into the season, I opted for a 3X so I can layer with a great chunky knit. It was nice warm day in NYC, so I opted for a cropped tee to show off the jeans. The best part, the jacket is on sale for $25!!!
With both of these pieces, I can create so many looks. Versatility is key these days. For example if you work in a more conservative office, the moto would look great with a pencil skirt. For date night, you can wear the moto with a pair of leather leggings. Heading to brunch, these jeans would look amazing with a sweater. There’s definitely no wrong way to wear these items.
Are you a fan of high waisted denim? Love to know yay or nay!! Later lovers!!!
