It’s back-to-school time! I know, I know…it’s all everyone is talking about. Everything is about school shopping and preparing for the big first day. Since my little ones grow like weeds, I have had to hit the stores to load up on back-to-school clothes. You can’t just show up to first grade in the same old kindergarten clothes, can you? :)
Jeans are a big thing in our house! Everyone wears them all the time! And with buying clothes for a family of 5, I like a good deal. Who doesn’t right?!? So, when I heard Levi’s was launching a new jean collection called Denizen which was exclusively for Target, I was intrigued to say the least. I knew if it was Levi’s – it was good quality and if it was Target – it was priced well.
New from the people who invented the classic American jeans, the dENiZEN brand makes it way to Target stores and Target.com nationwide this July. With a wide range of practical, fashionable, great-fitting jeans for the entire family there is no doubt that dENiZEN features the premium craftsmanship and on-trend styles for every body! Levi Strauss & Company has been a respected American crafted brand since 1853; they stand behind their clothes ensuring authenticity in each product. The jeans are made for the American family, by an American company.
I was sent a pair of jeans for my 1st grader to try out. She is the pickiest in our house right now about clothes so she is a great tester! She is a skinny, lanky, little thing so we chose the “Super Skinny” style in a size 6. When the jeans arrived, I was super excited to see that they had an adjustable waist. That means that I can tighten the waist band if they happen to be a little loose. The color was a dark denium (which I love!) and the material wasn’t stiff but soft and almost worked in like a great pair of designer jeans.
The jeans fit my daughter perfectly in the waist and length. Even though the jeans were fitted because we chose “super skinny” the material is stretchy so they are still super comfortable. She is able to run around, sit “criss-cross appleasause” and play while wearing the jeans on easily.
What about mom, you ask? Well, I liked the jeans so much that I had to try them out too. I’m a designer jean type of gal but I have to say that I really, really like these. I tried the “Mid Rise Straight” jeans and I found them to be true to size. My normal size fit perfectly. I like that the rise was just below the waist which was perfect for preventing a “muffin-top” but low enough that I didn’t feel like I had “mom jeans” on. They material was worked in from the time I received them very similar to my beloved designer jeans. Best part was that at only $24, the price was MUCH better than my beloved designer jeans. Plus, they just look good. So, if you are looking for some great back-to-school jeans for the whole family – head on out to your local Target. Or just order them online! :)
