Our editor Michelle Christina branched out into new territory recently: flare leg jeans revival. Reluctant at first to try the re-born trend out (middle school memories are not exactly incentive, you see), she had a change of heart upon seeing the gorgeous MiH Jeans Marrakesh mid-rise kick flare in Reed wash. See her review of the style below.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
It took a minute to get used to the flare legs after so many years of being a devout skinny jean fan, but as soon as I put heels on I felt better about them. Immediately I loved the high waist and the luxe, soft, amazing fabrication. MiH is really known for incredible, comfortable fabrics and this is no exception.
Where/when would you wear these?
These are probably going to be my summer go-to jeans for the beach, BBQ’s, and more casual outings. I like how they look with heels but I used Denim Therapy’s hemming service to shorten them to the perfect length (so they work heels or with my moccasins). I can imagine wearing them with big loose-knit sweaters or even just a bikini top.
How’s the fit?
Incredible. They’re one of the best fitting pairs of jeans I’ve ever tried on. Super flattering, stretch where it counts, the right amount of snugness in the hips. I loved that they didn’t stretch out during the course of the day. Now that I know how amazing the Marrakesh fits me personally, I think I’ll be investing in a few more washes.
