Like many people, I live in jeans because they are comfortable and coordinate with everything. However, 100 degree temperatures for five months takes away the "comfort" component and turns my fashion choice into a sacrifice. That is until I discovered these new jeans. NYDJ’s Smart Embrace™ is created with with high-performance, moisture-wicking COOLMAX® technology that keeps you cool and dry at all times. I was skeptical at first. I mean, how can stretch denim actually make you feel cool in 100 degree weather? But after trying them on and wearing them these past couple of weeks I can say it really works. Not to mentioned, they are way more comfortable than my other jeans.


After wearing them all August I don't even want to go back to my other denim. Plus, when the winter months come they keep you warm as well. I have no idea how they have done it, but I’m excited to experience it when the temps get down to the 50s. I’m a believer!


NYDJ is also known for their Lift-Tuck® technology guaranteeing that your backside looks the best it can be at all times. They place the pockets in the perfect spot to give the appearance of a lifted butt. Plus, their stretch denim ensures there is no gap in the back. As a girl that doesn’t have much of a butt, I’ll take help wherever I can get it. These jeans definitely help.


I tried two different washes, and I like them both. The dark wash is their classic girlfriend skinny jeans, and I also got the Alina legging for a more casual look (pictured above). Both are machine washable with a higher waistline. I went down a size with these jeans and I ordered a 2. I'm 5'8" and 126 lbs if that gives you an idea on sizing. NYDJ’s signature just-right rise is definitely helpful for any woman that is self conscious of their stomach. I know I fall into that category.


The jeans cost $134, and are worth the price for the technology and wearability. You can see more styles below. Photos by Rennai Hoefer
