FOUND: Nina Dobrev's Favorite Jeans and Tee Combo

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Having recently dealt with my own jeans over-acquisition issues, I can totally appreciate a girl who fesses up to denim fanaticism. In the October issue of People Stylewatch magazine, The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev spilled on her love of a good pair of jeans, including her favorite pair of jeans and her top tee shirt pick.

Nina -- pictured at left wearing DL1961 jeans, Vince Camuto Top, a Diesel Black Gold jacket, and a Tory Burch bag -- shared in Stylewatch that her denim collection recently ballooned to the point that her assistant had to stage a jeans intervention. She shipped her extra pairs off to a clothing swap and a local women’s shelter. So relatable!

Ms. Dobrev also shared her pick for the best “butt-boosting” jeans, in honor of Stylewatch's "3rd Annual Denim Awards" issue. Her pick? DL1961 Grace Straight-Leg Jeans. She claims that the behind-lifting action creates an insta-bubble butt, perfect for a night out dancing with the girls.

The Grace Jean, pictured below in Twilight wash, is crafted from a cotton/ polyester blend. I’m not sure I’ve ever worn a cotton/ poly jean, but I’ve heard enough women raving about these jeans to give it a try. This particular cut received 14 perfect 5-star reviews on Shopbop, with nearly every customer commenting on the amazing fit!

Now, what’s a great pair without a classic tee? In the same article, Nina picked the American Apparel Basic V-Neck Tee as her personal favorite.

Although I tend to play the field when it comes to tees, I have to admit that American Apparel does make a pretty stellar fit. Their tees are slim and fitted, but stretchy enough to still be super comfy. Plus, this particular cut comes in 28 different colors!
