Have no fear, thrift kitties! In this column, we’ll highlight some of Mieux & Mieux’s hidden gems and give you some ideas for how to wear them. Though there may only be one of everything, make sure to check out our online shop or stop by in person for similar styles. Score!
When colored denim first hit the shelves a few seasons ago, many ladies were a bit wary of embracing the trend, to say the least. As with many statement pieces, it was difficult to predict whether colored denim would be embraced a la skinny jeans or ditched with the gaucho. If 2013 is any indication, however, it appears the statement jean is here to stay, and we at Mieux & Mieux are totally into that. Since the trend has gone mainstream, there hasn’t been an easier way to show off your lower body and add a pop of unexpected color to your outfit. This red pair from J Brand is not only sexy and sassy, but also super wearable. Even if red jeans don’t turn out to be your thing, at the very least you’ll have a great jean for Valentine’s Days to come! Kidding, kidding. But actually not, because these would be perfect.
Have you ever owned a pair of J Brand jeans? If you haven’t, you’re missing out! The high-end denim brand is famous for creating super luxurious body-hugging skinny jeans – the kind that you can tuck into even your snuggest pair of boots. This particular red pair retailed for $176 and are barely worn, which makes them a total steal at only $38 from Mieux & Mieux! They have the perfect amount of lycra to stretch over all of your curves, but the denim weighs more than your typical jegging, and the color is a genuine bright red – not red-orange. Finally, the jeans feature a mid-rise, five real pockets, and a super-skinny leg opening.
These jeans would look great with a slouchy striped tank and a long cardi, a crisp white button down, or a relaxed grey dolman-sleeved top. Feeling bold? Pair with cheetah print, metallics, or neon like SJP! Whatever fashion aesthetic, we promise they’re easier to work into your wardrobe than they appear.
Are you a size 25 and need these jeans in your closet? Pick them up from Mieux & Mieux here! And remember: we only have one pair!
