⁠⁠How do you choose the perfect pair of jeans

I am often asked about choosing jeans and let's be honest we are always searching for that perfect pair.... invest wisely though and they will last you for many years to come......

Finding the perfect pair...⁠

👖 Jeans are available in a wide range of washes from super faded through to a dark wash. As a general rule darker wash is flattering and slimming to the leg. A darker denim will also look more formal for a daytime look for work and can easily be dressed up. White or cream are fab all year-round.⁠

👖 Look for a denim with betweeen 1-4% of lycra woven into the fabric - it makes such a difference to the comfort of the jean! Always try before you buy!⁠

👖 When you try the jeans on they should feel snug, I don't mean 'muffin top tight' (that's never a look any of us are trying to recreate knowingly 😂 ) but they should fit you well, so don't be tempted to size up. Jeans will give and after lots of wear you still want them to feel and look great on you.⁠

👖 Bootcut / Flared⁠ - Such a classic style and a key trend for 2020. Works for all shapes - especially good for balancing a triangle / pear body shape. ⁠

👖 Skinny⁠ - The trusty skinny. We all love them. Dress them up or down. Great for rectangle shapes!⁠

👖 Boyfriend⁠- Can be worn by all – be careful of fit over tummy area and hips! Key to styling them up - wear with a slogan tee and a blazer - trainers for casual or heels for work!⁠

👖 Mom ⁠ - High waisted silhouette with a rigid tapered leg – good for slimmer bodyshapes! Roll up the ankle for a cool vibe!⁠

👖 Slim / Straight ⁠ - A classic that works for all shapes – Good for elongating the leg.⁠ ⁠
