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.
Just a quick summary of the brand once again for anyone who might be just now tuning in: Mavi was founded in 1991 in Istanbul, Turkey and quickly became one of the top premium denim brands out there. I dig them because they are always producing high quality, classic, comfortable premium-level wardrobe essentials for not too high of a premium price tag! Mavi knows how to get extra creative every now and then with each seasonal release while retaining a high level of versatility in each piece. The Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in Mid Cheeky maintains two trends that emerged on the market a few years ago but don’t seem quite as huge as they once were: the step (or high-low) hem, and the raw hem. I’m not saying this is a bad thing…as Mavi seems to time some of these styles out just right so as not to blend in with the rest of the pack! At least, that’s how I see it. Trends come and go but in the world of denim, they usually come for a reason…because they had huge appeal among denim fans everywhere, and to me, if I like a style, I’m going to love it forever! Vintage looks are currently in big demand, and the Adriana in Mid Cheeky totally has that vibe going on as well.
The Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in Mid Cheeky definitely represents one of those extra creative moments for Mavi! I absolutely love the step/raw hem combo, but they also feature super cute thick, colorblock-like stitching down the sides in white, dark blue and light blue. These skinnies look like a well loved vintage pair, with subtle wear detailing like abrasions and fading throughout, and they’ve even got a little cherry on top: a super cute embroidered peace symbol on the top right fifth pocket. These fit with an 8.5″ mid rise, 14.5″ back rise and a cropped 27.5″ inseam, and although I am into the more luxurious, stretchier SuperSoft fabrics that Mavi recently integrated into several of their top fits (and highlighted in my last two reviews), these also carry on their vintage touch with a thicker 10oz fabric blend of 98% cotton, 2% elastane. So, they still have just enough stretch to hold you in all the right places. I’ve worn these several times and they’ve softened up to hug my curves even better, and have not lost their shape in the least bit! I got my usual size of 26, so I’d say these run very true to size like all of Mavi’s jeans seem to. The rise is perfect and I never feel like I have to pull them up throughout the day. I’m stoked to add these to my ever-growing denim collection as they are quite different than anything else I have, and as I mentioned, that is a tough feat with all of the denim reviews I’ve done since 2013…believe me!
I love that the Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in Mid Cheeky has all these unique creative elements but still remains a versatile piece. They add something extra and fun to my closet and they fit with just about anything I’ve got! Sometimes it’s the little details that make all the difference that you might be looking for in your daily getups. You gotta switch it up every now and then, and the Adriana Ankle Super Skinny in Mid Cheeky is a great option for you if you love the classic look but need that extra touch of flair! They do look more like a Spring or Summer jean, but the thickness will keep you a little warmer this winter and as soon as the warmer months return, trade those boots with some ankle-bearing sandals and you’ve got a wardrobe winner year-round (but how awesome would those side hem details be with boots??).
