This weeks review is on the Nobody High Boyfriend Jean.
Ok I have to put my hands up and say i’m not really a fan of the boyfriend jean as a style. So when Jo Pratten – Donna Ida’s in-store stylist handed me a pair I was skeptical but thought it would be a good style to review.
For my apple body shape I tend to try and enhance the good bits, such as slim legs and hide the not so good – my tummy area. I have always been under the impression “boyfriend jeans” are not for me as they are a relaxed slouchy jean and I feel I look better in a fitted style.
Putting all that aside I do like the idea of wearing a relaxed jean rolled up with heels and a smart jacket. A bit of a style contradiction but I think it works.
I’m trying on a size 26.
The Fit: The Nobody High Boy Boyfriend Jean is a relaxed slim fitting jean with a vintage feel and a light blue wash. With a high-rise, these jeans are the ultimate for comfort. Sizes 24-32, That’s approx a size 4 up to a 14.
Front Rise: Measures 11 inches, which is an extremely high-rise. Back Rise: 14 inches gives great coverage for all bottoms.
The Behind: The pockets are positioned quite high up which gives the clever illusion of a nice pert bottom. The bottom is nicely fitted for such a relaxed style of jean. On the right hand pocket there is a small embroidered detail which is a cute touch.
The Leg Opening: 13 inches which makes this style a relaxed straight leg jean.
Leg Length: 30 inches if worn straight. Roll them up twice= 28 inches. I have them rolled up four times = 26 inches. Jo Pratten- Donna Ida Stylist suggest having 2 inches of ankle showing to work the Boyfriend look this summer!
The Fabric: 100% Cotton, no stretch in these baby’s!
Function: Nobody’s tagline is “Form Function Fashion” and I think that’s exactly what you get from this style. The jean definitely hits the function of being a really comfortable relaxed jean and the fashion part is the higher rise and the palest denim wash which is bang on trend.
The Round Up Of The Nobody High Boy Boyfriend Jeans
I’m a bit stuck on this style as I do actually quite like the look and feel of the High Boy and like the way I look in the first image, it’s a new look for me. The high-rise is the sticking point for me being that at 11 inches, it’s just too high for my apple body shape. I’m not going to rule out a Boyfriend Jean altogether but will be looking for a style with a smaller proportion. Price £240 ( I just don’t love it enough)
Tried & Tested Score: 7/10
