When browsing for new denim or checking out what’s new in the world of style, Shopbop is always one of my top online destinations (next to Revolve). They always have fresh pieces and although I can’t always be spending that kind of money, I appreciate quality and the artistry that comes from these designers. However, you know me…I’m always wanting to peruse new sustainable brands or items first. Since there’s no actual category on Shopbop for that, I have to do my research beforehand. That is why I compiled five great eco friendly brands available on Shopbop for a post here not too long ago for others who might be wanting to shop more consciously. It comes as no surprise that I know several sustainable brands already, but not all of them are available as options at these popular shopping destinations. Reformation is one of those awesome brands that has been on my radar for awhile now (I’ve written about them twice, once in 2017 and another time this year), but they are almost exclusively available from their own website. So, I’m happy to see that they are now becoming more available to discerning customers, and I’m happy to now say that Reformation brings eco friendly style to Shopbop!
Women everywhere, no matter the size, always know the struggle of finding jeans that fit. Fortunately, ever since premium denim became popular in the early 2000s, several brands have drastically made that process a little less painful due to improved fits and fabrics that better form to your shape, but to say this issue has completely been remedied would be a bit of a stretch (no pun intended). This is especially the case if you have a more muscular or curvy build, and with the rise of weightlifting as an incredible and beneficial workout for women, a few brands have stepped up to the plate to make the denim world a bit more inclusive. Fran Denim has been one of my top brands that are made fit more ample shapes, as I am naturally a bit muscular but also strength train. I’ve reviewed a few pairs myself (see one here, and here…the second being my favorite) so I can definitely vouch for them! Another great pair that also fits the bill is Barbell, but I’ll have to give them their own post soon (it’s about time I highlight them again anyhow). With the summer being upon us and the subject matter being the aforementioned brand, I thought I’d share some new shorts for muscular women from Fran Denim.
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve written about flare jeans…Probably back when I reviewed a totally fun pair from AGOLDE for Denimology back in 2016! Time flies…and all this time, skinny jeans have continued to dominate the market. I’d say they still do, but flare jeans are starting to make a comeback again. I was sent this rad pair from Articles of Society, the Faith Flare Jeans in Rio Bueno, to review for Denimology, and I say they are quite groovy! I love this added dark denim panel on the outside of the flares.
