This week's Monday Piece is on Missguided vice lace up jeans! I'm a little fussy with my denim and am an awkward size so buying online can be a kind of tricky, BUT I wanted these jeans so bad from Missguided so decided to buy them and risk it for a biscuit. The reviews online said to size down, i'm usually a 27 in designer denim, then a 28 or standard 10 in high street stores like Topshop, so I decided to go for an 8 as they were described as super stretchy - i also bought them in a coated fabric in champagne in a size 8 but they were a little too tight on the waist, then bought them in coated black in a 10 but they were a bit big...nightmare! So this pair are the classic black vice lace up pair, they are fairly thick but mega stretchy, i have to wriggle them over my hips and the fit when they're on the hips is great, but they aren't as tight as i'd like them to be on my legs and the leg length is really long too. They have a concealed button up on the inside, then the lace up detail is elastic and can be tightened however you like, the lace up style is so sassy and i love the style so although they don't fit exactly as i want them too i'm going to keep them anyway! It frustrates me though how the same jean style isn't true to size in other colours/fabrics...plus for a size 8 jean i think the legs should be tighter, but denim sizes in shops are so different from one another so it's hard to find the right pair to fit your exact shape! I do think they're fab though and they work out pretty cheap especially if you get them with a discount voucher, if you fancy a pair yourself then definitely go down at least one size :).
