Highlights: Throwback style with a modern twist that are versatile enough to be worn on multiple occasions. High rise cut that is tighter at the waist having a nice tummy smoothing effect. Really nice quality denim that will retain it’s shape after time (the Madewell promise!).
Potential Drawbacks: Wide cut leg might be too wide for some.
Ideal For: A fashionista looking to style this season’s denim, as these are definitely more of a “trend” item. Ladies who prefer wearing tighter fitting tops, as the wide leg needs to be offset with a more form fitting blouse or tee.
Overall Thoughts: I SO wanted to love these. I feel in love with them when I tried them on in the store because they are super flattering in the booty and tummy area and look great with heels. However, after wearing them for pictures I just didn’t feel they flattered my shape. The wide leg is a little too wide for me. That being said, I LOVE these jeans in general and think they are a great addition to a wardrobe. The Madewell quality is just amazing, and I can see these being lifelong wear jeans. If you are looking to try the wide leg trend, and maybe have a smaller frame, I would highly recommend this style. I’m actually considering buying them in black for times when I need more of a professional look as I think the black will be a bit more slimming.
