Top Five Reasons to switch over to designer jeans.

1.They stretch to fit but keep their shape!

Let’s face it, everyone in the world of jean lovers has experienced this problem. You buy a brand spankin’ new pair that make you feel like the jean queen just to watch them slowly become your biggest fashion dilema. Nothing like jeans with a saggy bum to make you feel beautiful…not!

This is where the designers swoop in to save the day! We carry seven brands of amazing designer denim that will leave you feeling ready to sieze the day in style.
One of our best-selling brands, AG (Adriano Goldschmied), has a fabric that will hold up in every stretch battle! Their line of contour 360 denim is one for the books! These jeans are fully equiped with a four-way stretch to keep you feeling beautiful and sleek!

2.You can wash them without the color fading.

In an article in the Huffington Post searching for the best black skinny jeans this past February, three of the top 5
jeans are brands we carry in our store. Paige, Jbrand and AG all made the cut. Black jeans are a struggle for a lot
of people because no one wants runny dye ruining their outfit.

These jeans aren’t on the pricey side for no reason! With high-quality fabric that holds shape as well as color you can’t go wrong. These designers took special care to provide the best fabrics out there but if you want to go the extra mile remember to wash your jeans in cold water only turned inside out and lay them flat to dry.

3.They do your booty justice.

We all want our backside to be just as confident as our front and with designer denim you can finally show off that bum without covering it with a long top. The founder of Paige jeans was recently featured in a blog to discuss her company and her passion for denim. On the top of her list of important features in her design is the butt!

Paige cranks out arguably the best butt jean of our time and they don’t plan to end the era any time soon! Paige claims
that the secret to a great looking butt is the pocket placement. The pocket should end right where your cheek meets your thigh.

4.They’ll last!

It’s never fun to part with your favorite pair of jeans so why not invest in a pair of high quality jeans that are made of durable materials? We made sure to seek out the right companies that make quality a huge part of their reputation.
Jeff Rudes, owner of J Brand jeans (ones of our beloved brands), recently spoke about the importance of sticking to the good stuff when it comes the materials used to make these fabulous jeans. In an interview for the website Jean Stories, he said that it’s good to know how to say no and be stern on the quality of your product.

We are in full support of this philosophy which is why his line of gorgeous and long-lasting jeans are one of our top products. It’s that very mindset that makes all of our designer companies so reputable. They provide you with denim that will last you through all those memorable moments in your life.

5.Comfortable is an understatement!

Who says you can’t be fashionable and comfortable at the same time? Most of us wear jeans nearly every day so
having a pair that feels like you’re wearing sweats is the dream! DL 1961 is known for their stretchy quality
and innovative fibers, which is something we can all appreciate when we are bending over to pick up our kids or
out dancing the night away! Whatever it is that you do in your jeans, you might as well do it comfortably.

ECCO Staff Profile: Meet Marissa

ECCO Boutique Burlington VermontContinuing what we started last week, we’re looking forward to introducing you to each of the members of the ECCO team that help make the store as great as it is. Last time we introduced you to Melissa, and this week we’d like to tell you a little more about our Store Manager and Buyer extraordinaire, Marissa. A huge reason why we have so many  of the styles that you love – Marissa also gives us the inside scoop on her favorite Burlington destinations, hidden talents, and some of the perks involved with being a fashion buyer. 

ECCO Boutique: So how long have you been working at ECCO, and what is it about this job that makes you love it?

Marissa: I’ve worked at ECCO for going on four and a half years now, and one of the best parts of the job is the variety. Obviously I love the clothes and the creativity that comes with being involved in deciding what fashions we will bring into the store each season – but one of the best parts is the variety. From creating ads, to selling, to creating unique displays, there’s always something to do. Something new and exciting going on each day.

EB: Can you tell a little about what goes into buying clothes for the store?

M: When we’re buying for upcoming seasons, we go into New York City and meet with our regular brand representatives and designers. We look at what they’re showing for the next season, and really try to see what would work best for our customers and clientele back home. Next we always try to go around and see what innovative options other people are working with and what styles will be on trend in upcoming seasons. We try to pick up a new brand or two and really get immersed in the culture.

EB: Besides being able to get first looks at all the new designs, are there other perks that come with being a buyer for a boutique? 

M: Occasionally we’re wined and dined by some of the designers, which we definitely aren’t complaining about!

ECCO Boutique Burlington Vermont

EB: After a long day, where are you headed to go and grab a drink?

M: Lately, I just can’t get enough of Juniper in Hotel Vermont. They have such great food and drinks, and I love the atmosphere there!

EB: How about for a Sunday Brunch, any favorite spots?

M: The Farmhouse has a really great brunch – and I always get the same thing. Eggs Benedict – can’t mess with a classic.

ECCO Boutique Burlington Vermont

EB: What is your favorite brand in the shop, and an item that you just knew you had to have?

M: My favorite brand is probably J Brand jeans. I love their styles and they always fit just right. As for an item that I just had to have – there are literally too many items – basically I love them all, that’s a big reason of why we bring them in!

EB: And lastly, how about any hidden talents that we might not know about?

M: I’m a writer – I love to write poetry.
