Feeling your look is a little... "meh"? Well, snapping up some pro denim is the no-brainer route to getting that satisfying buzz within – you know, like the kick you get when you realise it’s dress-down Friday at work, or you score that amazing sale item you’ve been lusting after all season! It’s style magic.
Beige skinny jeans €8
Grey push-up skinny jeans €11
Now, before a big wave of fitting room dread wafts over you (we totally get it – trying on jeans is not a fun experience) fear not, we’ve set out to clearly navigate you through THE styles to get to know. Make a beeline for these winners and enter the whole process with a getting-the-job-done approach...
Super high-waist legging €11
Skinny pencil jeans €8
First top tip? Go armed and prepared with the shoe styles you’ll mostly wear your jeans with. After an evening jean? Take your heels in your bag, girl! And if you need an everyday pair of indigos, for throwing on with a biker and flatties, rock into store in trainers and stash pumps in a tote for a quick switch for testing out hem lengths. You’ll be amazed what having a little shoe-drobe to play around with can do for your jeans shopping mojo.
Failing that, dosing up on an ice cold smoothie or coffee (extra shot) is always a good idea. There will be some hop, skip and jumping involved, but we promise it’ll be worth it. (You’ve been warned!)
Blue denim jeggings €8
Super-stretch skinny jeans £13
It goes without saying, there’s a new black skinny and it’s got your name written into every perfectly-fitting seam. Gimme! Check out the super-stretch, jet-black style, engineered to be just the right amount 'smart-yet-slightly-worn-in'. Just don’t forget to wash them inside out, ok?
Coloured skinny jeans €9
Extreme-rip skinny jeans €19
Blue more your bag? Slipping into the finely-tuned pencil-cut jeans is never a bad move; probably the most flattering blue we ever did see! Watch this mid-wash beauty totally transform your collection of bombers, dressy tops, sweatshirts... pretty much anything!
Sateen skinny jean €13
Body curve skinny jeans €17
For the summer-to-autumn changeover, try a grey wash. Wear with that billowing, white, embroidered top - while it's still warm - and throw on an off-the-shoulder jumper, come autumn. Fancy some colour? Go maroon or nude – both equally packing in new season punch. Finally, the sateen-finish skinny, with its cheeky frayed hem and butt-lifting properties, is just the thing to bring any queen’s denim stash bang up-to-date.
