I’m totally all about any company that gives back with every purchase. A lot of us would love to do our part but aren’t quite sure how, so it’s nice to know some of our favorite brands are doing their best to make it easier for us! I’ve written about several other companies that have such a program, such as TOMS, Mitscoots Outfitters, and I have yet to write about another great one (and an awesome sock manufacturer), Bombas! Now another one of my all time favorite retailers, American Eagle Outfitters and their sister brand Aerie, are doing the same.
Denim has experienced a whole lot of reinventions throughout the many years it has dominated the market ever since Levi’s became a household name in workwear. The brands on top have competed with many other emerging trends outside the denim industry, most recently being activewear emerging as streetwear. Leggings have replaced jeans in the closets of many denim fans (and I admit sometimes I prefer to go for one of those leggings that looks and feels just too cool for the gym from time to time in lieu of my favorite jeans), so for the last five years or so, some pretty incredible fabric technologies have allowed jeans to at least lightly transcend into the legging market. For me, these have been amazing, as it was hard for me to find a jean that fit my curves just right without a belt! View Full Post
Here we go with the fifth and last (but definitely not least) review I’ve got for you from Mavi‘s awesome Fall denim collection. These all have been absolutely some of the best jeans I’ve ever gotten the privilege of reviewing, and I hope you liked them too! Every time I work with this brand I am consistently impressed with their constantly improving quality, fits and overall style and feel. Looking back, I’ve shared the Tess Super Skinny in Indigo SuperSoft, Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in Mid Cheeky, the Tess in Ink Stripe, and the Alissa Super Skinny in Dark Smoke Supersoft. I’m going to go back to the classics again with this next one here: the Tess Super Skinny in Rinse SuperSoft. Everyone needs that staple jean that will take them from the office to cocktails or from a nice dinner to dancing with ease, and this one fits the bill, both in comfort and that ever-coveted asset-enhancing factor!
I hope you’ve been enjoying my reviews for several of the great new pieces from Mavi’s fall denim line! These have been such great additions to my denim collection, topping some of my existing favorites, and I’m definitely thrilled to share them all with you. So far, I’ve shared my two cents on the Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in Mid Cheeky, the Tess in Ink Stripe, and the Alissa Super Skinny in Dark Smoke Supersoft. Next up is the Tess Super Skinny in Indigo SuperSoft, which is truly a perfect closet essential.
Alright, I have a few more reviews from Mavi for you…I am totally digging the jeans sent to me from their new Fall collection and they are rapidly moving up the list of my favorites from all the jeans I’ve reviewed in the last several years—and that’s a LOT! I’ve already presented to you the Tess in Ink Stripe, and the Alissa Super Skinny in Dark Smoke Supersoft, and I’ve still got three more. I’ve reviewed Mavi many times in the past, both for Denimology and my blog you’re reading now, and it’s been awesome to see this company grow as they have, both in quality and style! This time around, I’ve got the Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in Mid Cheeky, a vintage style jean with a whole lot of extra (yet modest) flair.
I hope you all enjoyed my first review in a long time from Mavi, for their Alissa Super Skinny in Dark Smoke Supersoft! After being so busy with other life happenings, it has been nice to get back to product reviews for all of you. I still currently have several more new Fall denim arrivals from this brand to share. To help new readers catch up, I’ve reviewed several items from Mavi in the past both on my personal blog (check them here and here) and at Denimology (see them here and here), and they are definitely one of my favorite brands to work with and share with my readers! This next review is for the Tess Super Skinny in Ink Stripe, which I have to say is one of my favorite jeans I’ve ever reviewed.
I know it’s been quite some time since I’ve done a product review…life just got in the way and I had a lot on my plate for awhile, so I decided to take a short break. It’s definitely meaningful to me to present quality brands and independent designers in general posts, but sharing them up close and personal is so much more valuable, and fun! I am happy to say I’ve currently got several more ready and waiting in the wings for all of you, so get ready! Mavi Jeans is my latest focus, and I have quite a handful of their new Fall denim pieces to share. If you remember, I’ve reviewed several of their jeans both on my personal blog (check them here and here) and at Denimology (see them here and here), and I’ve never been disappointed, so I’m stoked to try out a few more.
Fall has finally arrived, and everyone’s favorite denim brands are beginning to release their new Fall and Winter collections. Denim is a tough one to come up with creative ideas for whenever it’s time for a new seasonal release, so many brands will work on creating fresh new washes or fabric blends to keep wearers comfortable and stylish no matter the season. Many brands are still competing against the activewear industry, as several years ago a good portion of the market demographic began wearing their gym leggings in lieu of their favorite jeans. I wrote a lot about what the top premium denim brands came up with, in terms of stretchy fabric that moves with you, in order to stay afloat in the industry. I’d have to say in all my years of being obsessed with denim, that period of time was the most exciting, as I finally found several pairs that fit me so perfectly without a belt and made me fall in love with jeans all over again. Just about all the top premium brands had their own answers to this new competition, and Mavi’s Indigo Move is one great example. I reviewed a pair last year and I still wear it happily to this day! Mavi has just released their new Fall/Winter collection, which is mostly made up with another ultra comfortable fabric blend, Supersoft.
Even though we’re always looking for the next stylish ensemble to wear out, every woman appreciates the essentials. We’re talking the tees, tanks, slip dresses—anything that makes for effortless style. There’s also something to be said for those “jeans and a tee shirt” days as well. There are so many companies out there that cater to the need for wardrobe basics, so sometimes it can feel a little overwhelming. Personally, I like to seek out the brands that take basics to the next level, like simple additions or cuts that turn a tee into a head-turning piece or anything that helps me still take a step beyond the rest even though I don’t feel like dressing up after dragging myself out of bed in the morning. Of course, if a brand meets that need for me and is sustainable, it’s a win.
I know, I pretty much just wrote about this brand like three posts ago…but can you really blame me? You’d do the same if you were me—if you ran a blog based on sustainable fashion and had a top favorite brand that consistently released some of the most original, high quality, and affordable ethical pieces out there. Nomads Hemp Wear is slowly but surely taking over my closet…guilt free! As mentioned in several of my posts before about them, this Canadian brand has taken sustainable apparel and made it a lot more widely available for the masses. I don’t just mean in terms of affordability, but also in terms of style. Everything they create can be worn at festivals, street, out on the town or just to lounge around the house, and I feel it all brilliantly caters to a large range of tastes. Nomads Hemp Wear pieces may be super original and creative, but it also encapsulates a fairly minimal aesthetic. In a world where so many eco friendly brands are more about basic wardrobe essentials, these guys take it a very pleasing step further.
