Don’t let this nice weather fool you, shortly after I took these pictures it snowed 🙈 Sigh, it was bound to happen. Anyhow, moving to more fun things! Can we talk about coated denim (also know as “waxed denim”)? In my eyes, they are the next best thing to leather pants. Why? They look like leather but fit like a pair of comfy denim. And they don’t come with the hefty price tag 😉
Some of my favourite things about coated denim are that they can be easily dressed up or down. The subtle sheen not only highlights your curves but also adds that little something special to elevate your jeans. And not too mention that they’re versatile and edgy. Now in terms of fit, the wax coating makes these jeans not as stretchy as most denim but they keep their shape well. So buy a pair that fit you well and don’t size up or down.
Some tips for cleaning:
Dry Cleaning: If the tag states ‘Dry Clean Only,’ proceed with caution as heat is the enemy when it comes to coated denim. Ask for environmentally friendly dry cleaning because this process does not use high heat. I would ask the cleaner if they have experience with items like this…nothing worse than paying $$$ only to have them ruined 😣
Hand Washing: wash them inside out to protect the coating. But just like any other denim, you may still get some breakdown and aging…I like to use a mild natural soap, as it tends to be more gentle on all fabrics.
Thanks for stopping by!
