Renee tried on Doctrine Jeans‘ high-rise dark wash skinny with a pair of brown leather boots and a crisp white top, for a late fall/early winter look that applies to work as well as it does after-hours. We’re big fans of Doctrine and we showed you a few things we’re looking forward to for spring in our lookbook & line preview post in October. Renee weighs in on this particular style below.
What was your first thought when you tried them on? I love love love these. They fit like a glove, are not too tight, and are a strong, pretty denim.
Where/when would you wear these? They’re my perfect tuck-in jeans. The stretch allows me to tuck in tops and the thick denim maintains smooth lines.
How’s the fit? The high rise is very flattering, and the extra tailoring around the butt creates smooth lines and prevents any gaping at the waist. I admittedly can’t always fill out the butt in my jeans, but these fit perfectly. These are about as stretchy as I go as far as denim is concerned (I’m not a jegging girl), but the material is thick and retains its shape nicely.
