Citizens of Humanity Charlotte Jeans Review.

By: Jen Shoop

About half of my Magpies have asked for a Citizens of Humanity Charlotte jeans review, and the other half own and love them, so I finally ordered a pair of the Charlotte cropped jeans to review for myself. I took my true size (25) and went with the cropped length because I am short (5’0) — but they do also have a style with a longer inseam. They were very flattering on, especially the pocket placement in the rear and the way they sort of skim but do not cling to the leg. They boast a great straight-leg, high-rise cut. I love the particular wash of my cropped pair, too — ideal for daytime. Many of you have raved about them because they are somehow both contemporary and classic — not skinny, which seems to be unpopular at the moment — but not one of the looser/wider-leg fits that is dominating the street style scene. A perfect compromise.

However, I am still on the fence as to whether to keep them because they have a button fly (which I do not love) and absolutely no stretch. Maybe they give with a few wears? Maybe people like no-stretch because it really holds you in? But I think I’m used to something with a little more give and wasn’t sure if I’d be walking around like a tin man? I’ll tell you that my Agoldes 90s Pinch Waists also have very little give and I love the silhouette but I wouldn’t, like, choose to wear them while sitting at my desk all day. So I’m stuck! Are these jeans to wear when you want to look cute while hanging out with friends for a few hours? Will they “give”? I polled some of my fellow Citizens Charlotte owners, and a few suggested it’s worth sizing up one size — apparently, you still get the straight-leg look (they don’t look baggy) but they fit more comfortably for everyday life.

I’m wearing them above with this ATM x Anthony Thomas Melilo white top — a great layering basic that hits at just the right length for a tuck.

P.S. This is an expanded version of a review of the Citizens of Humanity Charlotte jeans that I shared in a try-on session of fun Shopbop finds — lots of other detailed reviews of chic fashion discoveries there.

  1. Hi, I am usually a size 27 or 28 in jeans but in citizens (I got the Jolene style) I got a 29. I found that initially these are stiff but do stretch a bit throughout the day and aren’t meant to be washed very often.
