THE EVERLANE DENIM COLLECTION

My go-to shop for basic items is Everlane. Their style is a cross between Scandinavian simplicity and French chic, resulting in basic elegant and casual fashion. I am thrilled that Everlane. now has a denim line with jeans made of premium Japanese denim with just a touch of stretch. I have just ordered their high rise jean. This type of jeans has been on my wish list for some time but I am not sure if it is flattering on me but for $68 I can not go wrong I guess. And this is what Everlane says (and I believe them as I have not had a miss with their items) about their high rise: “This pair is designed with a holds-you-in high rise for a sleek fit. Quite possibly the most flattering jean—ever.” I can not wait for my order to arrive!
