I don’t know about you but I find it really hard to buy jeans! Too low and I look like a caterpillar, too loose and they’re impossible to wear without pulling them up every 5 minutes. Sound familiar?
Well I’ve done the hard work for you and I’ve found my favourite black jeans – perfect for day or night – that are, hopefully, just the right fit.
I’ve heard amazing things about Katie’s jeans. They have no zip or button so they create a smooth line, plus they have a hidden waist band so no muffin top to worry about! These Riders by Lee jeans at Birsdnest are super skinny and high waisted so created the perfect silouhette, whether you wear a fitted or loose top. These high rise skinny jeans from Portmans are currently 25% off (run, don’t walk!) so they’re a bargain, plus the slashed knees adds a little rockstar edge without going for the full ripped effect!
These Oasis jeans are high-waisted look ridiculously comfy and I’ve heard the cut is super flattering – winner, winner! The Georgie Mid-Rise skinny are great for those who aren’t sure about going for the full high-waist but hate the muffin top of low-rise. They’re beloved by the girls at Birdsnest which is as much of a recommendation as I need! These high rise skinny rebel jeans from Portmans have black hardware to blend in and they hit right on the ankle – for a totally flattering style.
Styling tip: if you’re jeans don’t stop at your ankle, cuff them – that gap between the bottom of your jeans and your ankle/foot is super flattering and great for making you appear taller and skinnier than you actually are!
