Denim is a must need for any closet but finding the right pair can be a little tricky! I was really eager to try out a pair from Sézane’s new Eco-Friendly line when they released it so I ended up picking out a pair of The New Slim 7/8 (ankle-length cuz I’m short) to test and review for you! Note: I did receive these as a gift but this post is not sponsored and all opinions are my own.
Before I give you my review here are all the styles available from their new Eco-Friendly line so you know what they have!
In 93% organic cotton, 5% recycled polyester & 2% elastane the same magic of the Perfect Slim with a slightly cropped leg.
FitGuide: The stretch of these jeans means they flatter most body types. The cropped ⅞ fit makes this jean the perfect choice for more petite frames.
The New Brut Sexy – $125
Available in black, ecru, denim blue and light blue.
In 99% organic cotton and 1% elastane, the new Brut Sexy intuitively accentuates your curves, thanks to a snug fit around the butt and crisp, structured denim. The straight leg lengthens your figure.
TheFrenchTouch: The Brut Sexy II is hemmed, but to achieve your ideal leg length, you can simply snip the bottoms. The raw edge gives the jeans a sexy, lived-in feel.
FitGuide: These jeans are designed to fit like a glove. The crisp denim provides structure but means the denim has minimal stretch. Choose one size-up if you prefer a more relaxed fit. Leg: slim but not ultra-skinny a mix between the New Girlfriend (more relaxed/straight) and the Perfect Slim (very skinny).
In 99% organic cotton and 1% elastane, the new Parisian brings a vintage spirit to our collection. The structured waist and loose cut leg create a bombshell effect, lengthening your legs and enhancing your curves.
FitGuide: The New Parisian suits most figures, but perfectly flatters curvier frames.
In 100% organic cotton, with the perfect waist (not too high, not too low) our new girlfriend jeans mark the arrival of your new everyday favorite. With their relaxed, yet tailored fit, these are the perfect jean for lovers of comfort (& cool). A French wardrobe essential for a feminine meets tom-boy allure.
TheFrenchTouch: The hem of the New Girlfriend can be rolled up for a cropped effect.
FitGuide: In 100% cotton, these soft jeans move with you. Choose your usual size.
In 98% organic cotton and 2% elastane, our denim collection was missing a statement piece and Alvin is just that. Perfectly comfortable yet flattering, with its tie waist and cool, loose cut.
FitGuide: All for one and one for all! Juno is the style that suits every body type. However, do note that these jeans are a loose fit. For a more tailored look, choose a size below your usual size.
So I ordered New Slim 7/8’s in a size 25 in the light blue wash. I tested these jeans for about 5 days total to get a real feel for how they wear. Now my honest opinion is that overall, I don’t love these jeans. But, before you click out of this review let me explain since you may actually disagree with me and these would be perfect for you!
1. They are too soft!
Okay sounds crazy, but I do not like when my jeans are too soft! They are stretchy and very comfortable which you may love. But it’s hard for this vintage Levi’s living girl to want super soft denim, I need mine to be a bit more structured and borderline uncomfortable. Honestly, you could fly in these pants they are that cozy. I do plan on keeping them and wearing them on road trips since they are great for sitting!
2. Not a high enough rise
I like my jeans to go up to my underarms. Okay, not really but these are just shy of where I want them to hit me on the waist (I have a longer torso). Since the Sézane site does not have the rise measurements I took my own and the size 25 has an alllllmost 11″ rise. I need at least an 11.5″ to be happy.
I do want to try The Venice when they come back in stock since those look nice and high! I’ll review those too if I ever get my paws on them!
What I did like
They are the perfect ankle length for Petites! I just wish they were higher, I could get over the softness if they hit me high enough since they are the perfect length. I’m 5’2″ and these have a 27″ inseam and fit like a dream on the legs.
I also very much love the wash and overall look, plus they are very high quality and will definitely last you a long time. The denim is thick but not too thick and very good stitching. Sézane is known for creating quality pieces and these definitely match that!
