Citizens of Humanity Jeans are not your average jeans.  As jeans are a staple of every wardrobe, it is difficult to stand out from the crowd. Often, finding the right pair of jeans is compared to finding the right swimsuit. Why? Because both jeans and swimsuits have the ability to make you look absolutely amazing or like you are in need of a serious fashion intervention. I have always been a fan of great jeans…they are literally one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own. Skinny, flare, trouser….almost every style can be dressed up or dressed down. Throw on some heels and a blazer and you look completely polished. Throw on an old Rolling Stones T-Shirt and some Jack Purcells and you are ready for a casual, yet cool event. Simply put….jeans are THE staple of every great wardrobe.

After I had my first baby, I worked really hard to lose the extra 20 pounds, (ok, it was 40), I had put on during my pregnancy. I

knew, once I lost that weight, the FIRST thing I was going to buy was a new pair of great fitting jeans. I distinctly remember walking into Nordstrom and perusing the many racks of jeans. By a wonderful twist of fate, the sales lady ended up leading me to the table of Citizens of Humanity jeans. After trying on several pairs, we found the perfect jean.   That day I purchased  the best pair of jeans I have ever owned, a pair of boot cut Citizen of Humanity jeans that, (7 years later!), are my absolute favorite pair of jeans.  While they have faded a bit and the bottoms are just slightly starting to fray, these jeans are like a good wine, getting better and better with age.  The construction is amazing, the fit is perfect, and the pockets are in all the right places. You may not think this is important but where the pockets are placed can be critical to whether or not your tush looks like it’s up or down to your knees.

I became an overnight convert to the Citizens of Humanity brand and highly recommend you get yourself a pair of their jeans.  The story of this brand does not end with their great jeans.  Citizens of Humanity is not simply a hip brand churning out cool jeans, there is meaning behind the name, Citizens Of Humanity.  The company is leading by example by running their CITIZENSHIP by Citizens of Humanity, a campaign that encourages people to give back. According to their website,  COH provided support to more than 50 charities in 2011.    Wearing the perfect pair of jeans can make you feel amazing on the outside but purchasing that great pair of jeans from a company that gives back and, encourages you to give back, feels amazing on the inside.

(A quick tip when purchasing jeans: Always buy them a bit “snug.”  Jeans stretch and if you buy them “just right” at the time of purchase, they will stretch with washing and use and become a bit too saggy in all the wrong places.)  ~f2
