Editor's Note: Montana, our Calgary store manager, gives a great review about a fit she loves: the Rag & Bone Nina High Rise. Although this review is for the rag & bone Nina in the Carmen colourway, we find it's a great jumping-off point for anyone considering this fit.
When Rag & Bone launched in 2002 they had one thing in mind: craft beautiful denim inspired by the city of New York. Nearly 2 decades later they continue to do just that. Their latest fit for women, the Nina High Rise, is no exception. In this article, we'll take a deep dive into the design, fit and fabric of these jeans.
Fit: The Rag & Bone Nina is a staple high rise skinny jean that works for every occasion. Whether it’s a day at the office, casual coffee or an evening out. It's a go-to, easy to wear high rise skinny. It has a measured 10.5" front rise which sits perfectly at your natural waist and a 27" inseam which gives you a clean and modern silhouette.
Fabric: This fabric is extremely soft and really comfortable to wear. That’s all thanks to the Turkish cotton and stretch blend they chose to create this jean. The jean's fading is subtle but compliments the otherwise dark indigo colour. In order to ensure this jean stays soft and does not lose too much colour, I recommend washing cold with no fabric softeners and avoiding the dryer at all costs.
Final Thoughts: I find this jean works for any body type - whether you're curvy, slender or somewhere in between. Usually I'm not able to wear pre-faded or distressed jeans like this, since I'm petite and the fades sit on the wrong areas. However, with the Nina in the Carmen wash, I didn't have this issue, which is a definite gold star for someone who's on the shorter side. Overall, I'm impressed with this jean's versatility and would specifically recommend it to petite women who want a dark wash, comfortable pair of jeans.
