Kaitlyn Sisters Marie Blank NYC distressed skinny jeans

We were thrilled to make the [virtual] acquaintance of Lisa and Kaitlyn of Sisters Marie. These ladies share everything from fashion to family—they’re sisters in law!—and their blog is a fun mix of lifestyle inspiration (think: style, home decor, recipes, and more).


Our Jeanius matched the duo with jeans that fit their body types and spoke to their unique personal styles. The results were nothing short of perfection.


Kaitlyn’s perfect fit

Fitcode: 500

Style: Self-proclaimed skinny jean girl at heart, with long legs

Fitcode pick: Blank NYC’s Skinny Classique in Good Vibes

Kaitlyn seriously nailed this style. Don’t you love how she paired these distressed skinnies with those bold shoes?

3 ways to style white denim

May 20, 2016

We love white denim. (ICYMI, check out our tips for finding the perfect-fitting white denim.) We especially love how easily it can be dressed up or down.


Here are three ways to style white denim, as modeled by our multi-talented CEO and co-founder, Rian, in Paige’s Skyline Skinny in Optic White.

Keeping in casual. Dress down your white jeans with a pair of sneakers and a sporty top.

In the office. Nothing says business casual like crisp white denim. These Madewell loafers add a little professional polish.

On the town. White jeans require little in the way of accessorizing. Here, we added a slinky top with a pair of understated Vince Camuto sandals.

Tips for finding the perfect-fitting white denim

May 18, 2016
White denim Citizens of Humanity FRAME Denim Paige

White denim is white hot this season, so we set out to find the perfect pair of white jeans. Here’s what we learned.

Size up

Our fit tester (see also: CEO & co-founder), Rian, tried styles from Paige, DL1961, and FRAME Denim. No matter the brand, each and every style ran small.

Rian even tried on her go-to denim—Paige Verdugo in a size 27—and she could barely button the white 27s. Lesson learned.

We sized up for our second fit test, and the 28s fit Rian perfectly.

Sizing up not only ensured that Rian could move comfortably in her white jeans—it also got rid of the knee bulge that’s all-too-common with tight white denim.

Don’t worry, we got you: After more fit testing to vet our findings, we’ve included the recommendation to size up for the white styles in our denim boutique.

Warm vs cool

Not all whites are created equal. Washes range from warm whites that aren’t quite so white-white, to crisp (and more common) cool whites.  

If you’re in search of a warm white, try Paige’s Optic White wash.

Cool white lovers, try FRAME’s Blanc wash and Paige’s Ultra White wash.

Underwear matters

Ok, we’re going to go there. White jeans should be worn with white undies, right? Wrong. White undies stick out like, well, white undies.

Pro tip: Rock nude undies with your white jeans to avoid VPL.  

The winner is …

Though we loved all the styles, Rian (a Fitcode 500) declared the Paige Skyline Skinny in Optic White her favorite.

Flares and frayed hems

May 3, 2016
Blank NYC Cosmic Flare

It’s no secret that flare jeans are a style we love at Fitcode (see here and here). In the past couple of years, flares have made a serious comeback, and it looks as though they’re sticking around for a while longer. No complaints here!

Blank NYC Cosmic Flare (Close-Up)

We recently tried Blank NYC’s Cosmic Flare in Game Changer and let us tell you, the jeans live up to their name. Total game changer. The best part? They’re only $88.


The first thing we noticed is how incredibly soft the jeans are—made with fabric that is a perfect mix of smooth, comfortable, and stretchy. They’re also a beautiful light wash that’s perfect for spring and summer. But what we really love about these jeans is that they also have frayed hems—and as we’ve mentioned before, it’s all the rage right now.

If you’re looking for a comfortable and stylish pair of flare jeans, Blank NYC’s Cosmic Flare is a great choice. We also love 7 For All Mankind’s Ginger Flare which comes in a tailorless style for those of you shopping for a shorter inseam.
