As I walked into my birthday dinner last Wednesday, one of my girlfriends promptly commented on my jeans, saying, “Wait, I have those jeans. They’re from (Insert high-end designer label), right?!” I proudly responded, “Nope. They’re Athleta.” This elicited a collective, “Noooooo!” from the group, who then had me take a step back and do a little spin so they could fully examine these designer looking and fitting jeans from a brand they’ve come to love through me, but still associate with just activewear.
By now, it’s no secret that I live in Athleta activewear (particularly their Elation Tight), but I think you guys might be starting to catch onto the fact that I also live in their sweaters, outerwear, underwear, and so much more. And now, I also live in their Sculptek Denim, which in true Athleta fashion (pun intended) brings out the Power of She in anyone who puts them on.
I love these jeans for so many of the same reasons I love Athleta leggings. First, the design and the various washes put them on par with ANY designer jean (proof in my story above). Second (and I’m just going to say it straight), the Sculptek technology makes my butt and legs look like how I’d like them to look naked. Yep, said it. Third, they feel like butter on and are comfortable to wear from day to night (and maybe even sleep in). As you can see in the photos, these jeans can even see me through my crazy jumps, athletic endeavors, and workouts (if you ever actually wanted to workout in denim — although I may pass).
However, what I love most about the Sculptek denim line is how they make me feel — and this goes beyond the cut and design. Athleta’s “Power of She” spirit can literally be felt in every single piece of their clothing, and these jeans are no exception.
Wearing them makes me feel like my very best and most powerful self — and isn’t that all we really want to feel in our skin and in our clothes?
