Bloom is a dark denim with slight whiskering at the hip
This is my favorite pair of Emma's! I also own Penn which are very similar in wash but I like that these have silver metal detailing and grey-blue stitching so it's barely noticeable. The whispering is really flattering for my legs and the fabric is so soft!!
I was excited about these jeans (and they are my fifth pair from dl1961), but after about 6 months, I have barely worn them in. They don't fit "curvy" bodies well... and I write that laughing a little because I'm not traditionally curvy. I have muscular quads and a medium sized butt, and these barely fit over my legs. Once I get them up, the waist is way too large. I have the same size in the angel style and this is not as much of a problem (especially once they are worn in). I can actually take them off without undoing the button.
Also, they are cheaply made, which I was surprised about. The leg length is uneven between the two sides, the leg openings are different sizes, and the seam at the back (near my butt) is off-centered. It's all very slight, but overall, it makes these pants very un-wearable. These will likely be my last pair of dl1961's.
So love these jeans, the dark wash is perfect for those who are looking for a sophisticated look without a lot of distress. Can dress up or down, the fabric is not your everyday Jean material, these are way better with a lot of stretch and is the most comfortable jeans to date in my wardrobe. Love these so much I ended up purchasing Emma dyer, ricker, & cascade leggings, all in which are beautiful colors for any wardrobe, waiting to purchase Emma leggings in somer in due time. Worth the splurge!
I love all the styles, but Emma is my favorite. The Bloom is by far the SOFTEST pair I own-hard to describe, but almost feels like silk denim! The 360 degree stretch is amazingly comfortable and flattering. I usually wear a 27 in most other brands, but sometimes a 26 if they run big. These are true to size and CONSISTENT in every pair I have (10+ :}), which I love!
this is the best pair of blue denim i own - it never stretches or fades however, i try not to wash my jeans often. super flattering in the upper thigh area ie. doesn't accentuate inner thigh pudge, it actually has more of a spandex effect.
highly recommend the emma cut - flattering for curvy body types - i typically wear a 2/4 in Rag + Bone, 4 in Helmut Lang
