Denim Challenge: G-Star Raw 3301 Jeans

A few months back I asked on Twitter what everyone’s favourite jeans was, as I find that I am constantly battling to find that perfect pair, and G-Star was one of the labels recommended, so I was thrilled when they got in touch and asked if I wanted to check out their collection. They are a brand that are renowned for doing great men’s denim, and as I haven’t owned a pair of G-Star Raw’s before it was the perfect brand to start with on my denim challenge.

I have to admit I have varied denim needs: I love the skinny, as it is perfect with boots, but I find it is a hard challenge to find ones that fit perfectly; I also prefer jeans that don’t sit too low, I have admitted to myself that they only work when you are in your early twenties or super thin; and even if slightly uncool I quite like a boot cut/flare fit as well, they are just great for comfort and are flattering. I know hard to please aren’t I!!!

Well G-Star was certainly up to the challenge: they have a great selection of skinny, straight, boot, loose and slim cut styles, as well as great choice of washes ranging from my favourite dark blues and blacks to weather-blasted shades and white. Also the 3D technology they use to cut the styles is said to flatter any shape. I totally felt like a kid in a sweetie shop there was so many pairs to choose from.

I was instantly drawn to a pair of electric blue super skinnies, they were more than just a gorgeous shade they were so soft it actually felt like I was wearing leggings, which is perfect for the summer but I need winter-proof jeans!!! With that in mind I tried on the classic 3301’s and I was in love!!

These jeans have everything I look for: dark wash, mid-waist, flattering on the legs, and best of all they don’t need a belt to wear!!

The dark wash is just perfection and hides a multitude of sins, which is helped out by the minimal stitching, and the shaping of the pockets that make your bum look amazing *trust me*. I have 33″ legs so I do find it difficult to find pairs long enough, while maintaining their shape, and these beauties are amazing on.

They are the boot-cut style but they have more of a kick than normal. I felt that they were more flared than anything and will work on a night out with heels, and wearing to work or even for a spot of shopping in a comfortable pair of ankle boots. They are the most comfortable pair of jeans I have worn in a long time, which weren’t too tight or too loose they just fitted perfectly.

I am so happy with my jeans that I am sure you will be seeing them in a few style posts very soon!!!

After checking out the jeans I had a quick peep to see what else the G-Star Raw Covent Garden store had to offer and I was super surprised by all the gorgeous knitwear and coats. I have added this grey Battle Cardigan to my wishlist, also how amazing does it look with elbow-length leather gloves!!!

I also love this Oxford knit Bell Cape, it comes complete with the most adorable G-Star badge.
Fancy trying out which G-Star fits you best? Well this Thursday, October 27, the brand is hosting Women’s Night with InStyle at their Covent Garden store. All you need to do is RSVP here, and then you could be styled by InStyle’s executive fashion director Jaye Thompson and senior fashion editor Natalie Hartley. It promises to be a great night of shopping, fashion tips, pampering, music and drinks.
