"When you buy and useless stuff, you are more satisfied with what you have." -

Most women own some essential wardrobe items made from denim. Denim can be known for its long-wearing aesthetic, though buying good quality denim is important to get longevity from your blue, black or white jeans.
Jeans are an investment, make sure the denim you buy is sourced from sustainable origins. This is better for your bank account and better for the environment. The best jeans are the ones that get better with age, feel sensational against your body, look equally impressive, and are made from reliable denim.

For years now we have been cheering from the sidelines watching and learning how Outland Denim have been paving the way in human rights, transparency in their supply chain and sustainability ~ constantly in awe at their incredible efforts and undeniable moral compass. It began few years ago at a conference where we saw founder James Bartle speak about the mission behind Outland, that a profound respect for their business model was had by our team. 
The result of a collaboration between Outland and Spell. There two brands started talking at a
Turns out, the respect and admiration was mutual after a few industry events of bumping into each other, our Head of Product and Sustainability pitched to our team a collaboration - not only to add to our existing collections and find the dream denim we've always wanted to create but for a potential ongoing partnership for an ethical and sustainable denim supplier.

Founded with the intention to create new opportunities for women who have experienced exploitation and endured unthinkable trauma, Outland Denim is a leader in the field of business for good. Outland has built a transparent and impactful supply chain for its Denim line - right down to its own garment factory located in Cambodia where they offer training, stable employment and opportunities for growth.




Classic jeans are timeless, and SLVRLAKE's 'Sophie' pair are carefully made in a family-run factory to ensure a long lifespan. Cut from GOTS-certified organic denim, they have straight legs that strike the perfect balance of form-fitting and baggy.



Hand-picked Edit - Perfect Fit Jeans 



1. Slim Fit Jeans

Slim fit jeans are a useful jeans style to have in your capsule wardrobe. Comfortable and easy to wear. Slim fit jeans easily go with an abundance of clothes. Making them perfect to match with t-shirts, a loose-fitting blouse, tailored jackets, biker jackets or a sweater.
Literally so excited to wear these. Made from strong, durable denim - these are dream-fit jeans. Add stretch to taste.

2. Straight-leg or Mom Tapered Jeans

A new take on vintage styles from the 90s, Mom tapered jeans are a classic style. More room in the crotch and hips than straight leg jeans with a tapered waist. 
Mom jeans are able to be styled with the hem rolled up for a hipster, stylish look.
What is the difference between Mom jeans and boyfriend jeans?
Boyfriend jeans are similar but have more room in them. Think more crotch, hips and a baggy style. Both jeans styles focus on a tapered waist.

3. Wide Leg Jeans

Wide leg jeans are for women of all heights - listen up.
Wide leg pants, trousers and jeans became popular in the 2000s. Mainly in tune with a variety of hip-hop, rave and other music sub-cultures. Wide leg jeans are a wardrobe staple, stylish with a relaxed image. 
Wide leg trousers work on all frames, the fashion code is this:
  • Longer Legs = Lower Waist Wide Leg Jeans
  • Shorter Legs¬†= Higher Waist Wide Leg Jeans

4. Cropped Flare Jeans

A huge competitor in popularity with slim leg jeans. The cropped flare jeans are a classic style that is trending. 
Cropped flares are flattering as they show your ankle which is the slimmest part of your leg. 
Since cropped leg length will make your legs look longer, those with long legs should wear cropped flare jeans with flats and those with shorter legs can wear heels.
