Time to give the color scheme on this blog a little 180-degree twist, don’t you think? It’s been nothing but grays and blacks and head-to-toe blue, just dark, dark, dark! To ease us into that spring feeling, how about a little yellow?
The DL 1961 Angel Ankle crop is a true crop. These jeans feature a notch at the outside hem, and hit me a couple inches above my ankle bone with minimal tapering. As you’ll understand from my notes on the denim below, the kicker with these is the fabric.
Soft, stretchy and richly saturated with color – that’s how I’d describe these jeans. I actually tried a similar DL1961 jean about a year ago, but this denim feels wildly different, and the fit is much more forgiving. That’s because they’re made with a special 4-way stretch denim, and adapt to your body (58% modal / 23% cotton / 18% polyester / 1% lycra spandex).
Since a monochromatic yellow-on-yellow look wasn’t really feasible for me, I opted for a primary color scheme, mixing this rich tone with dark navy and a sweater with pops of red. I feel like quite the tomboy in this, but with a swipe of pink on my lips I felt just the right amount of feminine, too.
*Jeans were a gift of the brand.
