I’m going to introduce you to one of America’s big secrets, denim brand NYDJ which stands for Not Your Daughter’s Jeans. Okay, so I wasn’t too sure that these were meant for me either when I heard what it stood for, I’m not a mum (yet) so I still consider myself a daughter but hey, we’ve all been wearing Mum jeans this season so let’s not judge too quickly.
I’ve tried on a few pairs of NYDJ’s jeans and they’re anything but Mum jeans, they’re mostly slick skinny jeans and perfectly shaped straight legs that have the added benefit of making you look a size smaller around the waist! I felt slimmer down the legs too, that thigh gap definitely got a bit wider and my legs seemed longer thanks to the illusion created. They recommend you go for a size down from your standard fit but that doesn’t mean squeezing yourself into them and then peeling yourself out, they’re actually surprisingly easy to get on and off and feel extremely comfortable when you have them on.
Still not convinced, well maybe you will be once you’ve seen these lovely bloggers in theirs: Julia from Stylonylon in her Jeggings, Grace from The Stripe in her Skinnys, and Jamie Beck in lots of different NYDJ pieces on her East Coast road trip.
