Welcome to The Great Try-On. With spring officially in full swing, it’s time to ready your wardrobe, and we’re here to provide a little shopping inspiration. We got to try on some of the best spring pieces from some of your favorite brands and documented it all from our at-home dressing rooms so that you can see how they actually look IRL. We hope that our photos and candid reviews will help you shop for spring wardrobe builders that you’ll wear over and over this season and beyond.
Not to pick favorites, but no one really does denim quite like Agolde. The L.A.-based label has earned a cult following for its rigid jeans that are the next best thing to hard-to-source vintage denim in both modern and trendier fits. Its ultra-high-rise Pinch Waist jeans are an editor favorite, while the trendier Criss Cross fit is all over Instagram.
Naturally, being the shopping-obsessed editor and rigid-denim fanatic that I am, I had to test out the jeans for myself. I’m no stranger to Agolde but have only scratched the surface of its selection, so when the opportunity presented itself to test-drive a number of the brand’s most popular jeans, denim shorts, and basics, I did not hesitate. From the blue jeans that rival my most beloved vintage pairs to the denim shorts I immediately packed for vacation, continue on to see the results of my try-on haul and to read my reviews of each pair (plus some basics to go along with).
