The Léa Jean - Onyx

The Léa Jean - Onyx

The jeans your favorite heels are yearning for. Our interpretation of the classic 1970s style sits right at the waist and was designed to stop right before the floor, showing just a peek of shoe. Handmade in LA with Italian-woven denim, they have a hint of stretch to hug the body without losing shape.

Fits true to size. If you are between sizes, size down.

New Favorite Jeans!

As someone who is petite with wider hips, I have always struggled to find a pair of jeans that would fit me perfectly. Every store I’d go to would have jeans that would either be too long or wouldn’t fit properly on my thighs and legs. I always thought I had to accept the fact that I wouldn’t find a good pair of properly fitted jeans until I tried on Nelle Atelier jeans. I knew right away these were the perfect jeans for me! They fit my waist and legs perfectly while being the right length for my height. In addition, they really hit the mark when it comes to high quality material and comfortable jeans for everyday wear. It is so refreshing to finally find a brand that is inclusive for every body type all while remaining elegant and stylish. I will definitely be buying many more pairs of jeans from Nelle Atelier in the future!

Best Jeans For Short Women!

Being a 5’2” woman usually comes with being relegated to the online only petite section, constant need and cost of alterations, and never quite fitting in to traditional sizing and trends. Nelle finally feels like a product for us petite women. No alterations needed!
