Mean Jeans

So, coated jeans have been popular for quite some time now – even my husband has a couple of pairs! I, however, had a really hard time finding a pair that worked for me.

I had been drooling over all the coated jean styles for a long time, but all the pairs I tried on seemed to have minds of their own; as though they were trying their absolute hardest to accentuate my flaws and be as unflattering as possible, saying “haha, our lustrous sheen will never look good over your fat thighs”.

I had all but given up when I stumbled upon this pair of black coated jeans at Addition Elle. I was reluctant to try them on but as soon as I did, I knew I could rock them.

My immediate instinct was to wear them with a tight fitting top and heels for an evening look, but upon execution I really didn’t like the combination; so I went with a lovely red, black & tan chiffon top that didn’t fit too closely to the body, paired with an adorable black & white printed flat (mixing prints is so fun when it’s done right). I found that these jeans were best suited for a daytime chic look more than anything else.

All I can say is: Cynthia – 1 / Mocking, doubting coated jeans – 0. And… Don’t ever give up on a style that you love just because you think it isn’t right for you – there are ALWAYS options!
