Joe’s Flawless Cupro Colors The Vixen Ankle Review on Denimology
I’m so happy to once again have the chance to review Joe’s Jeans, which is one of those brands that definitely needs no huge introduction. Women everywhere have loved this brand for its impeccable fits for both slim and curvy shapes, and I’ll always vouch for the impressive durability regarding fabric thickness and overall feel. For those who don’t like a ton of stretch in their jeans, Joe’s is always a great choice. For those that do, and appreciate the flattering ability for stretch jeans to hold and tuck you in while smoothing you out, Joe’s now has a new denim fabric called Flawless, which does just that! This shaping fabric is applied to many much-loved Joe’s cuts, like the Charlie and Provocateur skinny and bootcut fits, Mustang and Vixen skinnies, Cigarette, Honey Flare and Bootcut, and more! Joe’s has also released a new collection within the Vixen Ankle style, called Cupro Colors for Fall. This collection is made up of four perfectly earthy autumn tones! For this review I am actually presenting both of these new releases for Joe’s, so without much more, here’s my Joe’s Flawless Cupro Colors The Vixen Ankle in Mustang review!
I’m always a fan of colored jeans, so when Joe’s gave me the opportunity to review one of these new Cupro Colors pieces, I was more than ready! I chose the dark brown Mustang color since it is a shade I don’t yet own within my denim collection. Once I got them in, I noticed the color appears more vibrant in person! It actually has a little more red in it, so it’s a really pretty brown…but I’m a webby person so I also know it can depend on your monitor’s color settings, even though it can be tough to best represent product colors online.
I got my regular size of 26, and at first these jeans looked pretty small, but most stretchy shaping jeans do at first…and these stretched right out to fit without being tight. They really are quite soft, and the fabric is thicker than your usual stretchy jean, which I definitely expected from Joe’s! They are made up of a 43% Lyocell, 22% cotton, 20% viscose, 13% cupro and 2% elastane fabric blend, and at a 28″ inseam they do hit me right at the ankle (I am 5’5.5″). I’ve been wearing them a little cuffed though, since it’s been ridiculously hot here in California, and I love the look! I’ve actually been doing that with just about all of my skinny jeans lately (since that’s pretty much all I wear).
The Vixen Ankle has a 10″ leg opening for a legging-like fit, and an 8″ rise to keep you comfortably covered. As you might have seen from my other reviews, I have more of a curvy athletic shape, and these fit right over my hips with ease. The only thing I’d mention is that I often have an issue with jeans gapping in the back as I have a smaller hip to waist ratio and my lower back has a deep slope, so although these don’t gap, the waistband could be a tad tighter for me as I do have to hike them up maybe twice a day, and they did stretch out just a little bit around the hips and waist. I think sizing down would have been too tight, and they are still softly snug and don’t fall down, so I still give them a thumbs up!
If you are looking for a comfortable, non-restrictive, durable and slimming skinny jean that’s different than the usual indigo washes, I would definitely recommend the Joe’s Cupro Colors The Vixen Ankle, in any of the four shades! The Mustang shade (as well as all of them) are neutral enough to wear with a wide range of outfits, and they are kept simple with no contrast stitching and just a light leather brand tab on the right back pocket. I’ve been wearing the Mustang color in various casual settings, but I am anxiously awaiting the Fall to come around so I can wear them with some tall boots. I think that brown color would look fabulous! I think it was a great idea for Joe’s to release this collection of Fall shades to give us something a little different for our late-year wardrobes.
