If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that we love Nudie Jeans—the Swedish denim brand with a cult fan following, honorary awards for eco-friendly design, and an aesthetic that surpasses any mention of fickle fashion industry trend. Their line of solid, classic jeans reflect the industrial origin of denim itself, yet still possess a modern, handsome edge that set them apart. And while their marketing is decidedly masculine, you may be surprised to know that the brand is unisex, and that Nudie Jeans Co. denim looks just as awesome on women!
If you need proof, we’ve got it right here. Francine, MC, and Renee discuss fit, function, and fashion when it comes to their favorite Nudie jeans below.
Renee’s Nudie Jeans: High Kai Black. Available for purchase at in-store at Brooklyn Denim Co., NYC.
What was your first thought when you tried them on? The denim is nice and thick, and they’re very form fitting. They’re a pretty solid black that I expect (in true Nudie form) to wear in nicely.
Where/when would you wear these? They’ll be great daytime downtown jeans. It’s getting colder here in New York, but on warmer days I’ll be wearing these with a faded denim jacket, a bulky scarf, and s silky top.
How’s the fit? I’m on a high-rise kick lately. These go up to my belly-button and create a nice silhouette. I’m 5’8″ and they’re just the right length on me, creating only a tiny bit of stacking at my ankle.
Francine’s Nudie Jeans: Tight Long John Skinny Jean. Available at DJ Premium.
What was your first thought when you tried them on? I’ve always admired the Nudie’s on my husband but obviously he is not the only one that looks good in them.
Where/when would you wear these? I am going to wear them next time I go have brunch at Schiller’s in the LES and go for a stroll around the neighborhood.
How’s the fit? I love the fit. They are mid rise, skinny jeans…perfect combination for me. Wish back pockets were a tad smaller. The fabric has the right amount of stretch so they are very comfortable. Overall,very happy with my Nudie’s, they feel and look great.
Michelle Christina’s Nudie Jeans: Tube Kelly Jeans. Available at DJ Premium.
What was your first thought when you tried them on? Seriously, my first thought was “Omg, girls can wear Nudies!” …My second thought was, this wash is awesome, and they feel so good.
Where/when would you wear these? I wore them to all the trade shows I attended this summer/early fall—they’re super comfortable and they go with everything. I wore them with a lot of button-down tops and wedge heels. Throw a few metallic accessories on, and you’re good to go. I even wore them to a few after parties! I just changed up the accessories and top.
How’s the fit? Love it.
