As any denim lover knows, we take the style of our jeans very seriously. Most of the time, we stick with that one style that not only looks good, but fits great. Over the past few years, I’ve stuck with the same skinny jean silhouette in a dark wash. That’s just what I’m drawn to. So, when Target challenged me to a different kind of denim hack, like trying a few AVA + VIV denim styles I wouldn’t normally buy—I was a little uneasy.
I visited Target.com and placed my order. It’s a good thing that from now until 8/15, you’ll get free shipping and free returns on all denim purchases. Just make sure to shop denim at www.Target.com/jeans. I’m always nervous when ordering online, because you never know about the fit. Below, you’ll see the three pairs of AVA + VIV denim styles I decided to try out.
Let’s just start off by saying that it’s been years since I’ve worn a pair of bootcut jeans. I’m serious…years. I’ve seen these in-store, but was never tempted to try them on. I can honestly say that was a bad decision. I was really impressed with not only the fit, but the length of the jeans. Which is super important when it comes to a bootcut style. I’m 5’6 and these hit perfectly, even with a 2-inch wedge heel.
You either love or hate a pair of white denim. But off-white is a different story. It’s not a color I’ve ever owned before. I’m that chick who always gets dirty…always. So, I don’t gravitate to it. And these are cropped, which can be tricky when you’re taller and come off as capris. I’m glad I ordered these. I can tell that these are going to be my fall favorite pair of denim. I plan on wearing these with ankle booties all season long.
Yay for the skinny jean! My favorite! But, what I’m not much of a fan of is this medium wash. It’s not a wash I normally wear. I feel like it can come of a little dirty. When these arrived, I immediately knew these would be a more casual jean. I wanted to roll them up right away and make it a sporty look. I liked the fit of these, but not sure I’d buy this medium wash again.
In the end, I’m really happy with these styles I decided to order. They fit great and ran true to size. Thank goodness! I don’t regret these unexpected picks one bit. And I love knowing that even if I didn’t like these, I could return them for free. Less headache and worries when ordering online. Just the way I like it. Makes my denim shopping so much easier.
Which of the styles above would you normally not wear, but would now try?
