J Brand Photo Ready Maria in Impression on Denimology
Hola denim world, Lana here again with a truly fabulous J Brand Photo Ready Maria in Impression review! Wintertime is usually considered prime season for skinny jeans due to the ease of tucking them into boots or wearing them like leggings under warm, tunic sweaters, but summer time is coming up and we all know what that means…bikini season! We all like to look good in the warmer months, not just for the beach, but for the multitude of trips and vacations and thus…all of the photos that are bound to be taken! Because of this, it’s not just our bikinis we want to look good in…we want to be “photo ready” in our skinny jeans, too!
J Brand is no stranger in the denim world. Born in 2004 by Jeff Rudes, J Brand quickly became a celebrity favorite, known for its timeless, neutral back pockets and streamlined, well-fitting styles. Rudes created his new brand “with a vision to create a jean that fit so perfectly it would follow the contours of the body.” I have a few jeans from J Brand in my collection already, two being the now-discontinued “The Deal” Pencil Leg and one being a straight leg style. They were all great jeans, but seemed all over the place in terms of sizing and amount of stretch, or just didn’t fit my athletic body type as well as I would have liked them to. I knew their Lovestory high-waisted flare was meant to fit a curvier body shape, but I had my hopes set on a well-fitting skinny and didn’t want to just be limited to one specific style. It was my assumption that J Brand was simply meant primarily for those with model-thin body types. When J Brand came up as a brand to review for Denimology, I was curious to change my mind about the brand, as I still couldn’t quite get over them, and asked for any curvy-specific styles. It was then that I discovered J Brand’s new line of Photo Ready jeans, which included a high-rise skinny style called the Maria. The J Brand Photo Ready Maria in Impression is the subject of this review, and I went with a size 26, knowing that my past J Brand styles varied between 26 and 27 and I knew these jeans were meant to streeeeeeettttchhhh!
