Denimology’s review of the new J Brand hit style the Nikko Skinny in Empress.
Hey everyone! A few weeks ago I went on holiday to see LA and stayed in Indio for the second weekend of Coachella music festival. I had an amazing time and am back with exciting news and photos to share.
It has been a long time since my last review and I missed Denimology! Today I am going to tell you about my experience with the new style from J Brand. The Nikko skinny is a cotton-stretch jean featuring sateen colour block panels at front waist and inseam. It's a slim-fit design with two front and two back exposed zipper pockets. The fabric feels very soft with a slight stretch and has 98% of Cotton and 2% of Lycra. The Nikko comes in three different colours, which are: cream Empress, Bright Royal blue and Black Widow.
The best thing about these jeans is that they make your legs look slimmer thanks to the dark stripes inside the seam. The clever design sculpts a slim silhouette while speaking to the colour block trend. Even though light colour jeans can be usually quite tricky, the black panels are there to make you look tall and slim. I would say the Nikko runs true to size because 26 that I was reviewing felt too loose on me so I would definitely go a size down for my usual 25. Leg opening measures 10 inches and leg length is 29 inches. The jeans have a mid-waist where the front rise is 8 inches and the back rise measures to 12.5 inches. For me this was a perfect mid-waist and I felt really comfortable wearing it.
As to the styling of the jeans I have to say there was a moment when I wasn't sure what to pair them with. After trying them on with different tops I realised that the jeans can be easily teamed with a very simple as well as a more interesting top or a blouse. Also, I think they can be worn with flats as well as high heels because they the Nikko will always make your legs look nice.
