Not "Jeans" -- Twill Pants
Perhaps wrongly, I associate "jeans" with some variation of denim and these are most definitely not denim. They're cotton twill pants. Still, I LOVE the fit and the look. These are incredibly sexy and the black panels (which don't look as black in-person as they do in the still photo) definitely give the impression of leather panels and details. I can't speak for anyone other than myself -- I'm 5'10, 144 lbs (and I wear a size 27-28 in almost all J-Brand styles) -- but the fit on most every J-Brand style is incomparable. Over the last couple of years, I've pretty much stopped buying anything other because I don't think there's a better fitting brand on me. The only reason I gave these four instead of five stars was because I was expecting a true jean, but I'm still loving these regardless of the material. And you can handwash them cold instead of dry cleaning. I love having that option!

Love the Color
I love the bright mint color of this sweater. It's a LOT thicker than I anticipated it would be, but the color still makes it a perfect transition piece into Spring. I don't know how wearable this will be during the summer and given the price point, I would have liked it less bulky so that it would transgress the boundaries of the next couple of seasons. The color is so fun and the fit great so I'm keeping it. The taller you are, the more cropped this sweater will be on you so do plan on wearing a tank or something else under it. And beware that whatever you put under it is going to have to be fitted and thin because the sleeves leave little room for even somethig like a simple button-down shirt. Oh, but that yummy, flattering minty color...!

Extra Blousy
Because I wanted a blousier look, I still ordered a large despite all of the reviews that suggested sizing down. The fit is great and I love the look. A white shirt is a surprisingly challenging find so I was pleased to come across this one. It's versatility as a dressier or more casual piece is terrific. I didn't give it five stars because it's lacking the super silkiness of other Equipment button-downs I own. Still, it's a fab addition to any closet. A great staple.

Top: Simply Gorgeous
This top is very delicate given its beading and super sheer, but I love the options that such sheerness offers; wear a lacey bra or silk cami which gives a subtly sexy vibe to the look that will fit a party or night out, or slip it over a nude colored tank, making it much more wearable in any number of situations. I first added pink, peep-toe heels, but the color detracted from the outfit's soft palette of colors. I ended up going with simple, nude open-toed pumps, and it was the perfect complement. You will love this outfit.

Skirt: Simply Gorgeous
I purchased the top that matches this skirt and while I normally don't want to look too matchy-matchy, this outfit is simply beautiful. This skirt floats and the soft crepe-like fabric means you don't have to worry about wrinkles. I'll also pair this with a simple tank and flip-flops. The colors are so soft and pretty. This is a great Spring and Summer outfit that will soften the very popular neons and brights that you'll likely be adding to your closet.

Versatility in Spades
I purchased this skirt in-store before realizing it was available on Shopbop, but I wanted to review it because the picture does not do it justice. This skirt is mini, but not exposing on my 5'10 frame; it's great to find a mini that works on a tall frame. The fabric and pattern look winter, but the colors align with the Spring palette. I paired it with the DVF Isaye golden beige top (available from this site) and a pair of bright orange Jimmy Choo super high sandals and got endless compliments from women, even strangers! I tried on both the large (which I would have normally ordered) and medium, and the medium hung perfectly low on the hips, just as I like it. It's one of the most workable-mixable-matchable pieces I've found in a while. I also love the Theysken's Theory sweater that it's been paired with in the video. The front pocket is a great detail. You'll have nothing but love for this skirt.

Modern With a Hint of 70s... Super Sexy!
The concept of "gold lame" might not sound appealing, but there was something so special about these slacks that I thought I would at least try them. When I slipped them on, they were like magic! The material is feather-light and the lines make your legs look endless. I ordered true to size and they sit low on my waist (right above the bikini line) so consider sizing down if you want a snugger fit that will sit higher on your waist. Despite the fact that I'll have to get them tailored -- there were at least two inches of material puddled on the floor after adding four inch heels to my 5'10 frame -- I'll be wearing these a lot. A simple tank will make them weekend worthy; a silky top will turn them cocktail, and a tailored shirt or sweater will give them a professional look. They're nowhere near as shiny as they look in the photo. Instead, they're very modern with a hint of 1970s' style. And crazy sexy.

The Spring Sweater Has Arrived!
Loose-knit, lightweight sweaters are popping-up everywhere and this one is not only the perfect color and cut, but also fits like perfection. The late afternoon sun color combines with the soft knit to create a supremely pretty Spring sweater. This is going to get a lot of wear from now through Summer. The color and texture really make it seasonless. Beware of the pull-easy nature of any loose knit, including this one. But if you're careful, it's a great piece to add to your wardrobe.

Alluring
Because of the cost, I tried this on at a local boutique before buying it on Shopbop. Once you slip it on, you won't want to take it off. The tailoring and fit is perfection realized. I ordered this dress in yellow and I literally feel like I'm wearing a ray of the sun. The length of the skirt is demure which off-sets the more revealing top; it hugs every curve without being exposing. A major head-turner, it's feminine, sexy, and oh so lovely: This dress defines what it means to have a woman's body.

Simply Sexy Tank
This is my second tank from this line and the silky, slinky fit -- plus the longer length which is a major bonus if you're tall -- makes it a must-have. Wear it alone or layered. The material takes an ordinary tank and makes it super glam. It's VERY body-hugging through the shoulder, bust, and waist so sizing up makes it much more wearable.
