This week on Tried & Tested we have a new model called Rachel who is a slight pear shape and testing Sass & Bide’s In The Stars Striped Jeans available at Glassworks-studio. The only jeans you will see me testing for the next six months are maternity jeans!
Rachel wears IRO Alessia Jacket £300.00
The Fit: The Sass & Bide In The Stars Striped Jeans is a skinny 5-pocket blue and white thin striped denim jean. Light blue stitching and brass-look button closure and hard wear with covered zip fly. Rachel is wearing a size 25, which fits her size 8 nicely. Sizes start at 24- 30, that’s a UK 6 -12.
The Rise: The front rise measures 8.5 inches, Back Rise: 12.5 inches which gives good bottom coverage.
The Behind: The styling on the back pockets is simple and flattering, The stripe shapes the bottom as the direction of the stripe is slanted on the yoke ( the piece under the waist band) compared to the rest of the jean.
The Leg Opening: 10 inches making this a skinny jean for sure.
Leg Length: The length sits just on the ankle bone at 27 inches.
The Fabric: 98% cotton, 2% spandex gives this style a slight stretch, the wash is called ” The Winning Day”. The blue and white stripe reminds me of the kids brand Osh Kosh stripey dungarees.
Function: The vertical stripes on these skinny crop jeans are flattering to the wearers figure. The lightweight denim is perfect for a summers day and the fresh stripe reminds me of boating and picnics.
Which Body Shape: Rachel is a slim pear shape with a unique rise measurement of 12inches ( measurement from crotch to belly button). 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. For Rachel she prefers a higher rise as she has a long body. With a front rise of 8.5 inches this jean is good for Apple, Long & Leggy, Hourglass and small Pear body shapes.
The Round Up Of The Sass & Bide In The Stars Striped Jean
Sass & Bide is a cool Australian designer brand who made their mark in 2000 with the super-skinny misfit jean a favourite of Kate Moss. So they definitely know their denim. I’m liking the “In The Stars Striped Jean” as the stripe gives a fresh wearable look for the day. The measurement of the rise against the style works for most body shapes. So this style has both function & fashion. If your looking for a denim alternative this stripe skinny jean is a good option for the day.
The price is £190 and available online at Glassworks -Studio or visit The Glassworks Pop-Up Shop, located a 2 minute walk from both Covent Garden and Leicester Square tube stations, at 9 Mercer Street, just off of Long Acre.
