Where is the warm spring weather?! We had a quick taste of 50 and 60 degrees in New York and just like that it was gone. Here we are with a blizzard coming today?! Last weekend we had a slightly warmer day and I took advantage as a chance to wear something other than my winter parka. I was a little ambitious though, as the winds were in full force that day.
A few weekends ago we headed over to the Levi's store in the Meatpacking district to take advantage of a sale they had going on. I walked in the door and got straight to the point with one of the salespeople - "Where are the Wedgie jeans?". I had been eying these jeans for some time now and wanted to try them on for myself. I've spoken a lot recently about how much I love high-waisted jeans. They are slimming on the waist, lengthen the leg and make pretty much every top look stylish. I wear my black skinny pair multiple times a week and love my wide-leg mom jeans on the weekends. I wanted a pair that was fit through the waist and hips but still straight in the leg - from what I've heard this is the Levi's Wedgie Jean M.O.
After trying on these selvedge Wedgie jeans I knew they were going to become my new favorite pair. I love the distressing along with the lighter color and the fit is super flattering across the bum (the Wedgie name is a bit of a mis-nomer as they fit pretty perfectly). I would recommend sizing down as you really want a snug fit and they will stretch out a bit as they fit to your body. I definitely plan on get another pair of these jeans, perhaps the black, medium blue or light blue. If you're looking for a great and universal pair of high-waist jeans this season, this is your best bet!
