The Leandra

Styleimprimatur_Redone_leandra_jean_Outfit_Fashion_Shopping_Blog3These Re/Done The Leandra Jeans (also online here and here and in-store only here and here) are hands down the best cropped flare jeans ever! Perfect high waist fit (with girdle like qualities) and kick flare, which even on a short person like me, works! The flare is achieved with an extra piece of denim on the inside leg and my personal preference is for this fabric to as closely match the rest of the jeans as possible. But as with all Re/Done pieces, each one is unique and should be celebrated for that!  Photo: Man Repeller


Styleimprimatur_One_Teaspoon_Ford_Hawks_Denim_Shorts_Product_Outfit_Fashion_Shopping_BlogBeing  a big fan of denim shorts, I have plenty of the slouchy hip hanging style (those particular ones being the One Teaspoon Rollers Denim Shorts) but have been wanting a distressed high-waisted pair for a while so decided to give these One Teaspoon Hawks Denim Shorts (some washes also on sale here),  a try and they are great! Today I am wearing the One Teaspoon Phantome Hawks Denim Shorts and I also picked up these One Teaspoon Ford Hawks Denim Shorts (pictured above). You will see that although they are both called “Hawks” there is a slight difference in the detailing but the fit is the same. A couple of things to keep in mind when ordering are that they are true to size and have no stretch. Photo: One Teaspoon

Kick Flare

styleimprimatur_fashion_shopping_blog_hm_kick_flare_jean_regularI have been looking for a higher waisted jean with a slightly flared bottom and found the H&M Jean Kick Flare Regular here at Rome. I would say it is mid height waist rather than totally high waisted (the search still continues for that) and the pair I saw are black which is a nice slightly washed out colour. They are the perfect slightly cropped length for me but saying that I am only 5ft 3 and a half.
