Diesel Fit Your Attitude Spring Summer 2012

Diesel Fit Your Attitude Spring Summer 2012

Diesel denim has a special place in my heart. They were the first pair (probably the only pair) of designer denim I paid the full price for. They are also my favourite brand of denim that aren’t stretchy,  I love the fit of jeans that incorporate that function but there is nothing like breaking in a pair of stiff denim or finding a pair that fits like a glove.  Diesel had a great fit but I found as I got older the styles were a bit too young for me. Fast forward a few years and the folks from Diesel invited me to the Toronto flagship store to introduce me to their new women’s denim line called Fit Your Attitude. I always enjoy playing dress up so I accepted.

The Fit Your Attitude line has six styles representing six different attitudes:

Sexy: Flairlegg is a flared wide leg jean with a regular rise waist
Chic: Highkee is a skinny leg jean with a high-rise waist
Free Spirited: Grupee is a super skinny leg jean with a low-rise waist
Brave: Getlegg is a skinny leg jean with a low-rise waist
Confident: Bootzee is a bootleg cut jean with a regular rise waist
Spontaneous: Myguy is a boyfriend style jeans with a low-rise waist

These jeans  are newly redesigned and Diesel took measurements of more than 20,000 women to create a new, more comfortable fit for this line. Other features include more comfortable belt construction so that it’s more comfortable and doesn’t pinch, new back pocket design which gives you a curvier butt and seam placement that makes the legs look longer.

I tried on all the jeans but the Highkee and I have to admit they were all really good. I wasn’t expecting all the styles I tried on to work out.  My favourite of the group were the Getlegg.  It’s the perfect skinny jeans for people like me with track and field thighs.  These jeans have a skinny leg but are a bit looser in the thigh and knee.  Diesel was kind enough to let me select a pair from the ones I tried on and I live in these things now.  They are so comfortable and easy to break in.

Everything I tried on looked great. The low-rise styles also have a higher back so that you aren’t showing plumber’s butt if you bend over. Each style also has different washes that aren’t pictured here but you can see them on Diesel.com.

I also like that I didn’t feel like a 20-year-old club girl in the Fit Your Attitude line. The embellishments and distressing is kept to a minimum which results in a more classic looking collection.
