During this satanic heat spell, you’ve nixed running, polyester, and anything black.
But jeans? Hell, no.
Enter new Dallas-based denim label Hip Chixs, owned by pals Megan Carreker and Aimee Miller. They’re hot in a good way.
The duo’s first collection has two slimming cuts — straight and boot — in a classic soft indigo wash or a vintage look with hints of gray and brown and some light fading. Although they keep the pockets and stitching simple, the ladies add a little sizzle (and their Texas roots) with extra inches on the cuffs to flatter towering heels and the phrase “Y’all want some of this” embroidered in a hidden spot.
At $181 a pair, these puppies aren’t cheap. But Hip Chixs claims if you line-dry the pants, they will last an eternity.
Which just goes to show: The devil’s in the details.
