It’s that time again to update my denim wardrobe and my new favorite brand is Black Orchid, creator of my new favorite skinny basic jean. Yes, I still love my J Brand and my 7 Jeans, but wow, slipping into a pair of Black Orchid jeans is like throwing on my favorite pair of leggings or sweatpants; it’s just that comfortable.
Fortunately for everyone else around me, Black Orchid jeans also look better than my beloved schlumpy sweatpants that I wear to the gym. The stretchy fit gently embraces my curves, doesn’t cause muffin top, and so it’s no surprise with this forgiving fit that recent mother, Jessica Alba has been wearing these jeans all over town. The cut of the jean also sharply tapers at the knee, so you get a nice slimming effect in the thigh.
Most excitingly, I don’t have to alter or tailor my Black Orchid jeans! As a petite girl, I can’t tell you how happy it makes me not to spent the requisite $20 at my local tailor to go through the whole re-attaching the original hem process and to actually be able to walk out of the house in an unaltered jeans.
You can find Black Orchid jeans at Saks where they retail for about $114+ dollars. Black Orchid also offers their jeans in a number of finishes in addition to their basics like the paint splattered Black Jewel.
