Hey guys! So I decided to start a new series on my blog, just to make things a little more interesting. The series is going to be called "Hot or Not" and it's going to consist of me reviewing products that may or may not be hyped up.
Disclaimer: These type of post will consist of MY personal views on these products. I am in no way trying to bash a brand or their products. I am also not trying to offend anyone that may be in love with these products or the brand. Please keep in mind that everything does not work for everyone.
Now without further ado, first up in this series, Fashion Nova jeans.
A Little Bit About Fashion Nova
It's no secret that Fashion Nova is a website that has been taking social media by storm. If you haven't heard of Fashion Nova (which I highly doubt) it's an online boutique that offers cute/trendy clothes at a really affordable price.
If you're looking for a clothing item that is trending on Instagram you are more than likely going to find it on Fashion Nova. Celebrities like Cardi B, Khloe Kardashian, Amber Rose and so many more have been spotted rocking their clothes.
But there is one thing that the brand is probably the most famous for, their jeans. So I decided to try a couple of pairs out for myself. Especially since the website caters to curvy women, (I normally wear a size 12/13).
The Sophie High Waist Jegging is first up on our list. These jeans fit me PERFECTLY. I was in so much shock when I put these jeans on because most jeans are really tight on my thighs but huge on my waist. I almost always have to wear a belt with my pants. These jeans fit me in all the right places, and fit perfectly around my waist. They were also super high waisted and went right above my belly button. With these jeans I don't have to worry about wearing a belt, or constantly pulling them up throughout the day.
I was also surprised by how much they stretched. The jeans were super soft and lightweight. Although, they were lightweight the material didn't feel cheap. Overall these have to be my favorite pair out of the bunch.
One thing that I will note for the sake of this review is although the description of the jeans say "dark", the color is more of a light wash. This didn't bother me that much, but I thought it was something to make note of.
Overall my rating on this pair: HOT
The next pair that I purchased was one of the most popular on their site. I have literally seen these jeans everywhere. So of course I couldn't resist adding a pair to my cart.
Once again these jeans fit me perfectly. They were slightly, and I do mean slightly, tighter than the Sophie Jegging, but overall they were still a good fit. These jeans were a beautiful dark blue, and in all honesty made my shape look great.
These jeans do have faux front pocket, so that is one thing to pay attention to if you're a pockets kind of girl.
These jeans were the final pair that I purchased from their site. I decided to go with a pair that had a little bit of character and this pair had a couple of rips in them. I've been trying to get away from jeans that have rips in them because I can't wear them to work, but these were calling my name.
This pair had to be the most disappointing out of the bunch. Don't get me wrong, the jeans fit...kind of. But they gave me a weird bulge in the front. They did fit my thigh area, but the front part of the jeans were just to big for me. I really wanted to like these, because they were so cute. But I just decided to send them back and order a size down.
I don't want to give them a terrible rating, because I did like them for the most part. They were still soft and really stretchy. The sizing of this pair just didn't work for me. If you're thinking about ordering these I would definitely suggest going a size down.
I'd consider this pair to be: NOT SO HOT
I was really happy with the overall quality of the jeans that I ordered from Fashion Nova. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend their jeans, but I would suggest that you pay attention to the reviews when it comes to sizing. Personally I wouldn't purchase anything that doesn't have a review on it.
So if you're thinking about giving this site some of your coin, I definitley think it's worth the hype.
Have you shopped with Fashion Nova before? What works from their site? What doesn't? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading,
