TRIED & TESTED DENIM REVIEW

Today’s review is on a graphic print legging, The Gotez by Rag & Bone, a lifestyle brand, which is available at Donna Ida and exclusive department stores worldwide.

One again we have Rachel a slight pear shape modeling the Gotez legging, she is wearing a size 25.

Rachel wearing Rag & Bone Gotez Legging

The Fit: The Rag & Bone Skinny Legging is a mid-rise skinny with an all over print and slim fit. They have a super skinny leg with a 10″ leg opening. Donna Ida say’s they are true to size but packed with a good stretch. Sizes 24 – 30 (approx UK size 6- 12)

The Rise:  The front rise measures 8 inches, a true mid-rise.

The Behind:  The back pockets are a simple square shape, what I like about the behind of the jean is that the print doesn’t follow the jean pattern, they have picked out a different section of the print on the back pockets. This works really well as it makes the pockets stand out, making the bottom an interesting feature. The pattern on the waistband tends not to follow the pattern on the jean.

The Leg Opening:  10 inches a skinny fit down to the ankle.

Leg Length:  The inseam is 30 inches, which sits on the ankle bone.

The Fabric: 96% Cotton 4% Roica

What’s That?:   ROICA is spandex of a higher order with superior functionality that provides right response to various customers’ needs. The ROICA spandex is a premium stretch yarn with excellent stretch and recovery.

Function:  The Gotez Legging, is a fresh statement style, white based jean with a fantastic subtle graphic print. It can be worn for both day or evening as the colours in the print can be easily teamed with denim or a floaty blouse such as the Tucker Shirred Short Sleeve Blouse – Orange Rachel is wearing.

Which Body Shape: Rachel our model is a slight pear shape and the size 25 fits her well. Again, what I like about this style is where the print is placed on the leg, it gives the thigh a  slim silhouette. This skinny lends it’s self more to the  Long & Leggy, Apple and slight pear, hourglass body shapes due to the mid-rise. The curvier you are you may find you need a higher rise. So let the mid-rise be your guide.

Tip: As I always say, no two pear shapes are the same and it’s your unique rise measurement that should guide you to the best rise for you.

The Round Up Of The Rag & Bone Legging in Gotez

If you haven’t already guessed, I really like this jean and I’m a bit upset this one will pass me by due my pregnant state. I think it’s the print that’s hooked me, it’s subtle but still enough to make a statement. It’s a nice change away from all the floral prints out there. I would team it with a pale denim shirt or a light denim jacket and would be good to go. The 4% mix of Roica ensures a good fit, which is important in a white based graphic jean.

The price £195 is now reduced in the Donna Ida sale to £136.50, personally I think it would be rude not to, but that maybe my denim addiction talking!

Tried & Tested Score: 9
