I don’t know about you, but I have new denim on my mind! I can’t wait for the weather to change so that I can pull on a pair of jeans!
However, after my KonMari project…my denim collection offered slim pickings. I was definitely in need of a new pair of jeans (or two).
As a Personal Stylist for Anthropologie, it seemed only natural that I begin my search for new jeans there.
Are you desperate for new denim?
Read on. Here’s what I found…
A little insider info: Anthropologie has a few styles and brands of denim that are exclusive to them.
First up, AG denim. AG (Adriano Goldschmied) jeans are available from lots of retailers, the Stevie style is created just for Anthropologie. These jeans are made in the USA and have a bit of a cult-like following. In my experience, women who love Stevie jeans rarely buy any other styles.
The Stevie comes in several different lengths and washes, but the Stevie Ankle seems to be the most popular. This is a great choice for women of all heights. Designed to hit just above the ankle, this length looks just as chic when it stops a bit lower on the leg and can easily be cuffed or rolled slightly if it’s too long.
Next up is the Pilcro Brand. It’s exclusive to Anthropologie.
Insider info: A Pilcrow is the symbol for marking a new paragraph
and looks like this ¶.
For the fall 2015 season Pilcro has completely revamped their denim line! In the past, I’ve heard customers say that Pilcro jeans were dated, even frumpy…not modern enough to make her feel chic. Someone in home office was listening! Now the fabrics are being sourced from high-quality mills and the designs are contemporary and wearable.
I just bought my very first pair! Pilcro Hyphen.
I love them!
They are the softest jeans I’ve ever owned (sorry, Emerson). I could easily wear them on an airplane…the true test for me.
The new Pilcro jeans are stylish and comfortable. Well priced for premium denim with most styles costing around $148-$168.
Here’s a review for the Pilcro Hyphen Jeans from the Anthro website…

I am French girl, I did not know Anthropologie and I love!!!!!
Aesthetic/design: 5 / 5
Quality: 5 / 5
Sizing: True To Size
Yes, I recommend this product.
Style: Classic - simple and structured
I love a ringing endorsement from a French girl!
In addition to AG and Pilcro, Anthropologie carries about a dozen other denim brands. Citizens of Humanity are super popular at the Boulder store. The Rocket is a high rise, classic style and one of our best sellers.
Just maybe...you've heard me rave about my personal favorite from Citizens of Humanity. The Emerson. These are perfect for me since I prefer my everyday jeans to have a slightly slouchy boyfriend cut.
Two other great brands to check out online or at your local Anthropologie are...
Mother (the brain-child of two denim gurus, one from Citizens of Humanity and the other from 7 For All Mankind) and Paige Premium Denim
(created by Paige Adams-Geller, a former denim fit model)
