I received a pair of Mavi Gold Alexa Bootcut Jeans from Mavi Canada to review. It’s a mid-rise jean featuring a higher back – so no more mooning people every-time you have to bend down or kneel!
I have had Mavi jeans in the past and loved their durability and quality. I’d still have them if I hadn’t outgrown them! However, I wasn’t aware of what the Gold Collection was and I found out that the jeans in the new Gold collection features XFIT Lycra which is a truly revolutionary fabric that is able to stretch in all directions and features exclusive shape memory so you always get a “golden fit”.
I really love the detailing on this pair of jeans. The button on the front is black and jewel shaped and the pockets feature interesting stitching in a nice tan thread that works very well with the dark wash of the jean. I also love that inside the jean is a really cute black fabric for the pockets with gold butterflies and dragonflies. Although I’m the only one who can see it, I think its a cute little touch.
I did have to cuff the jeans at first as seen in the photo above because they are 34 length and I’m only 5’4″ – they have since been hemmed to fit lengthwise better. (They do come in different sizes, as well as styles so there is something for every woman from Mavi) I washed and worn these jeans several times now and find they look just as amazing as when I first received them. (Washed in Cold Water, inside out and then hung to dry.)
What I love most about these jeans is the comfort and style. They look great but they are also comfy enough that they’ve become my go-to pair of jeans – especially on casual Fridays at work when paired with a nice shirt and heels so I can still look professional.
When I asked about reviewing Mavi jeans by the PR & Marketing rep at Mavi she mentioned these were “The perfect pant for a busy mom!” At the time that made me a bit worried that they would end up looking like the kind of jeans my moms generation wore/wear (Sorry mom but yikes!) These are truly anything but your moms jean, these are jeans for a new generation of moms seeking style and functionality.
Are they the perfect pant for a busy mom? They are for this mom!
