Buying jeans can be confusing and stressful especially if you’re not really sure what you want. And why oh why do they make the sizing so confusing – I’m 54 and still have no idea what size I am!!
The only way to buy jeans is to order lots of pairs online and try them on in the comfort of your own home. Theres no hot changing rooms and unhelpful shop assistants to contend with and you can simply send back the ones you don’t like.
The big news in the denim world is that skinnies are over – yes really!! There are lots of great alternatives, the boyfriend is easy fit and flattering, the de-constructed (the uber fashionable are on a waiting list for the £800 Vetements pair!) are all about customisation, while wide legs and kick flares are cropped above the ankle and will look great in the summer with bare legs.
Here are a few suggestions to get you started – ranging from super expensive to totally affordable.
