Make Your Butt Look Better! A New Revolution In Women’s Jeans


de Chemin Jeans is new on the scene, but their philosophy stems from a problem women have had since the beginning of skin-tight garments: making their butts look better. Whether you’re aiming for more lift, smaller size, or any other magic transformation, this brand says they have what it takes.

“Born from the son of ’70s label Chemin de Fer, the collection is engineered to enhance the appearance of your bottom. Each pair is constructed employing more than twelve pattern pieces of engineered stretch fabrication. On the back of the jeans, there are strategically placed reverse yokes. The waistband is sculpted to frame your shape, and the detailing on the hips is inspired by aeyodynamic design to lengthen the legs.”

We’re intrigued further by their vintage style lines and high-waisted options… so intrigued that we’re going to try on a pair next week and let you know what we think.

Don’t Buy Jeans With Less Than An 8″ Rise


8 is the magic number! This is one tip we stand by with both feet firmly planted, but Lucky Mag is here to reinforce it why we have to be careful how many inches should be accounted for in the rise of your waistband:

“Don’t go too low: Steer clear of jeans with anything less than an eight-inch rise, especially if you don’t have six-pack abs. (The rise, by the way, is the distance from the crotch to the top of the waistband.) If the top button is any lower than three inches below your navel, even the slightest post-lunch tummy pooch can look like a full-fledged muffin top, and who wants that? Well, someone, probably.”

…Well, even if someone does want that, we don’t want that for you. Heed the 8″ rule! And remember, high-rise doesn’t mean high-waisted, to the belly-button. See three of our favorite picks for high-rise jeans below.

Renee Reviews Doctrine High-Waisted Dark Wash Jeans


Renee tried on Doctrine Jeanshigh-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.

Court Jeans Spring 2012: It’s All About High Waisted Daisy Dukes & High Waisted Jeans


For Spring 2012, Court Jeans wants us to wear short denim shorts and be embraced by high waisted jeans.  You may have seen the trend on cropped tops, so the high waisted jeans will be a great complement to your street style look.  We are loving this extension to the 70s trend, because of the Daisy Dukes and Farah Fawcett appeal.  We’re also loving the nostalgic touches throughout the collection: the star print shorts (very Wonder Woman TV serise) and the Joanie shorts (a nod to the ”Joanie Love Chachi” TV series?); and the vintage washed high waist bell bottoms.
