Does the Perfect Pair of Jeans Exist?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.



Summer will be over before we know it. Which means no more bathing suits, but the beginning of jeans season! Bathing suits and jeans...two of my least favorite things to shop for! I don't know if I've ever found the elusive 'Perfect Pair,' but certainly not from lack of trying. I always take a giant pile of jeans into the dressing room and pick through them one by one. Same routine with each pair:

Pull on the jeans, hope they button
Turn around and check out the butt
Squat down a few times, break a sweat
Stand on your tiptoes because it makes you feel slimmer
Wrinkle your nose and declare them 'Not Flattering!'

I happen to be blessed (har-har) with a short inseam and substantial junk in the trunk. Not ideal for finding well-fitting jeans. So when the folks at  Express jeans contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in reviewing their women's jeans, I jumped at the chance. After all, I like the fit of their Editor pants and hoped the jeans would be similarly successful.

I hopped over to the store on my lunch break, and the sales associates were so helpful and knowledgeable about the jeans. They brought me several different fits to see which suited my body best (as well as some really cute tops!)

They patiently switched out styles and sizes until I found my best fit. My favorites were the Stella Flare with flap pockets:

And dark rinse Bootcut. The Slim Fit seemed to have less of a waist-band gap than Regular Fit, too.

Express jeans  also have pocket styles ranging from basic to lots of bling, and dark, light and distressed rinses. You can also choose between short, regular and long lengths. I tend to stick with a dark rinse with very little embellishment. My goal is to always look taller and slimmer (I'm just shy of 5'4").

They also had some really fun colored jeans, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to jump on that bandwagon.

I tried the Jean Leggings and Skinny Jeans, but they were too tight for my 'curvy' legs.

I'm pretty thrilled with my new jeans, now I just need the temperature to drop about 40-degrees so I can wear them.  Want a free pair of your own? Enter the Express giveaway!  Simply 'Like' them on Facebook for a chance to win one of 50 Free Pairs!

  2. Too funny! I love Express for their tops and have some jeans too. I actually really like how Guess jeans fit me- is it still the 80s?

  4. You are the cutest! I wish I looked that good in jeans! All of the styles you tried on looked great. I haven't shopped at Express in years - I'm usually a Gap jeans kinda girl but I might just have to give Express a try.

  5. Cute! They all look great! I'm with you on wanting to look tall ... I'm 5'1" so this is no easy task. I'll have to check out Express. I'm always on the hunt for cute jeans that are comfy and flattering and not too $$$$. :)

  10. All of those jeans look great on you! And I can't help but notice the perfect waves in your hair. I have a big case of hair and jeans envy going on!

  11. You looked great in all of them! I hate shopping for jeans too and like you, have a short inseam and have some "junk in the trunk" (I don't think you really do). I recently bought a pair of AG jeans and love them! I never thought I would spend so much money on a pair of jeans but they are the most comfortable jeans I've ever owned and I actually think I look pretty good in them. I'll be checking out the Express jeans though, they look great!
