Last week I attended The Denim Fit Lab at My Style Suite at Westfield Southcenter to get a sneak peak at a cool new denim concept debuting over Presidents Day weekend. The Denim Fit Lab is designed to help customers find the perfect denim with the help of fit experts, Fitcode, Fitcode takes the guesswork out of getting a pair (or two) of jeans that are perfect for your specific body type and your personal style. No stress, all fashionable fun!
Here is how it works: You take a short online fit quiz to find your personal Fitcode, no measurements required. So easy. Once you have been assigned a "Fitcode number" you can shop your personalized denim recommendations. The Style Suite is full of racks of great denim that have tags with corresponding numbers and the knowledgable staff can get you the details on fit, stretch and answer any questions.
I was looking for a skinny boyfriend style that was more fitted than the other pairs of boyfriend denim I already had. The JAG Sheridan Skinny in Blue Carbon not only had the perfect amount of distressing, but it fit my body like a glove. A soft comfy glove at that! And an extra bonus...I went down two sizes in this jean! Thanks to Fitcode and the great ladies from Styled Seattle and Fitcode, I found exactly what I was looking for. It was easy and fun, and I walked out with a great fitting pair of denim. Yay!
I paired my new jeans with my J. Crew Collection Chelsea Glitter Boots because I love mixing distressed denim with dressier pieces. I rolled the hems to show off the boots, and since the wind was blowing a thousand miles an hour, I layered my pieces. I wore a tie neck silk blouse from the Nordstrom Signature and Caroline Issa Collection underneath my PLAY Comme de Garçon Mens Cardigan Sweater, which incidentally is less expensive than the women's version. My favorite bomber jacket to date has to be the stunning Free People Floral Embroidered Bomber. It has panels of silk and velvet with gorgeous embroidery work, and even the pockets are lined in velvet. It is a heavier bomber and therefore quite cozy. Coolest jacket ever.
Now it is your turn to find the perfect denim! On Saturday, February 18, Styled Seattle, a local fashion consulting and personal styling business, is partnering with JAG jeans and Fitcode to host a complimentary Denim Fit Lab.
