Jean Genies #2: Lady K Loves

This is the second instalment in my series about the perfect vintage-style jeans – you can read my first post here.

Lady K Loves is a small, fair trade, UK clothing brand. I’d heard about them through Diablo Rose who was modelling a pair of their Hug Me Baby jeans on Instagram.

I’m quite cautious about ordering clothes from new brands online – when possible, I like to try on clothes for the perfect fit. It wasn’t until my shoot with Cherry Dollface that I had the opportunity to visit their workshop in Bristol.

I tried the Hug Me Baby jeans first of all. This style just didn’t work for me as I didn’t have a big enough hip-to-waist ratio. It was suggested that I try their ‘Classic’ style and…success – they fit perfectly!

As described by Lady K loves:

Our Classic style comes in nice and tight leg at the top and are a little loser around the ankles. They’re cut for girls with ample curves and around 10″ difference between their hips and waist, for instance a 27” waist with a 37” – 39″ hips. They have a classic front zip and pocket details, a rise of 13 and our sweetheart yoke.

New and improved finish, but the same fantastic cut as the original Classic jean style. Based on measurements given by our Facebook fans to work out the best waist and hip measurements. Please see the table below for measurements in inches.

Made from stretch denim, with a high waist and slim leg.

Featuring – Front zip – High waist – Sweetheart Yoke – Front pocket – Fully riveted front and back pockets – Back pockets with embroidery detail – Two tone twin stitching – Belt loops

This style of jeans is well and truly out of my comfort zone – they’re the closest thing to ‘skinny’ jeans that I own. I love how they make me feel like a fifties teenager though!

They’re made from decent denim so, as well as being comfortable, they hold me in. I love wearing them with shorter/cropped tops and jumpers.

What do you think? I’m glad I have another style option in my wardrobe – even if it’s something I need to get used to!

Huge congratulations to Lady K Loves on their successful Kickstarter campaign. Now I just need to be patient enough to wait for my ‘Le Wilde’ jeans!
