There’s no profound way to say “I’m so over winter.” At this point, only a fab faux-fur leopard coat and Givenchy will get me out of hibernation. Given the well below freezing temperatures, these jeans have been on repeat lately. I’ve always been really particular about jeans, specifically in finding the right fit, fabrication, and wash. This high-waisted pair from J Brand has just enough stretch (you typically want to look for no more than 2-8% spandex in the fabric content), without becoming overly stretched out in the waist and knees after a few wears. Not to mention the rich black wash is a versatile wardrobe essential, capable of toning down even the brightest hues and most wild prints.
