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.
I have to admit there are a lot of perks to my job as an editor. But the coolest part, in my opinion, is testing out all kinds of fashion items and getting to the bottom of which ones are (or are not) worth buying. It’s that aspect of the job description that led me to try on seven items from the brand behind many of the World Wide Web’s most viral pieces: With Jéan. (Remember the Alexa dress?) But rather than putting the cult-favorite Australian brand’s already-famous creations to the test, I figured my time would be better spent getting to know the ones that are right on the precipice of making it big. That way, you’ll have plenty of time to shop the best ones before they go viral (and subsequently sell out forever).
When selecting my batch of With Jéan items to test out IRL, I made sure to pay attention to which ones had the most viral-worthy qualities. I’m talking standout prints, eye-catching hemlines, and interesting details, which in this case means giant safety pins, wraparound neck clasps, and hook-and-eye T-shirts. And just as I suspected, there wasn’t a disappointment in the bunch.
For the real juicy details, though, not to mention access to seven soon-to-be internet-famous pieces, you’ll have to keep reading.
