Do you remember the time when denim cost less than $100? Ahh, how I long for the days…especially since denim is such an integral part of my wardrobe. Most California gals get my denim love (sorry East Coast-ers, but I’m not sure if you’ll fully understand until you live here). It’s just so practical, comfortable and really, versatile for where I live. Luckily, I have another TDO editor, Stacey (aka productwhore), who not only understands my love for denim, but also shares it. (She might be more obsessed than I am.)
I recently tried Divine Rights of Denim, a new line that just launched this past spring/ summer season – but has already developed a celebrity following that includes Lauren Conrad, Audrina Patridge and Jessica Alba. But what’s so special about this denim brand? None of the pants from the line top $100. In fact, they average between $58-$78. Because of this, I was skeptical of the quality. It’s been a LONG while since I’ve bought a quality pair of jeans for under $100 (excluding sales). However, I’m totally loving these and in fact, might become my go-to brand, especially when it comes to skinny jeans.
The brand has really cute names for their various styles – from “Sensuality” to “Envy.” I tried a pair of the “Lust” jeans, which are skinny jeans that somehow keep you looking lean. The slim cut is quite wonderful and the fabric has just the right amount of give so you can stay comfortable. The rinses are classic, dark washes that you’ll never get tired of. The uniquely designed back pockets are strategically placed to give your derriere a bit of lift, without overdoing it. The most amazing part about the line is that the quality is definitely on par with some of the denim heavyhitters out there right now. (I won’t name names, but they definitely match up to many of the brands that fill in my closet!) The fabric has a medium weight, but is still quite soft. You can bet that I’ll be wearing my pair all season long with everything – and when they wear out, I’ll be ordering another pair!
Divine Rights of Denim is available at Dillards.com and other select retailers. Trust me, these are every bit as good as your $200+ pair. Get yourself a pair and try them out!
