New jeans? We can hear the groans a mile off. You know you need a fresh pair, but could it be any more difficult to find THE ONE? It's easier to stick to what you know and be done with it, right? Hold up – what happened to your new season spirit, gang? We've got a big, glorious helping of jeans hitting stores, right now, so check your denim game because it's about to get a serious boost. Believe.
Destroyed-rip jeans £15
Super high-waist skinny jeans £10
Take the classic skinny in the new jet black wash. Those in the know are elevating theirs with a minimalist white cotton tee and a medley of open maxi shirts, dusters and fluid trenches. It’s all about adding that magic long line layer on top. It just works. And you over there, yes, YOU... Step away from the black, make it a bold colour or print, capisce?
Distressed-hem jeans £13
Black PU skinny jeans £13
Now, we’re down with a bit of distressing when it comes to our denim; a classic frayed hemline does the trick, nicely. Throw in a step hem and you’re onto something. Destroyed at the knees and the ankles? All day, every day. Go a step further with the gotta-have embroidered mules or block-heel loafers, for a chic spin on 'comfort dressing'.
Leg pocket jeggings £15
Sexy rip black skinny jeans £10
Leather look? Now you’re talking. The fashion go-getters will be styling them romantic, with a side serving of androgyny, via ruffle front blouses and blazers. Add a hat and pointy boots if you want to go all-out catwalk, but an easier way to slide into shiny trouser territory is with your breton and hi-top plimsolls. Master a red lip and pin a few badges on your top to add a stylist-approved flourish.
Rip-and-repair skinny jeans £15
Black skinny jeans £10
Finally, if you want to inject a touch of rock 'n' roll into your everyday, there’s an extreme-rip skinny for you. If you thought you had styled them every which way going, then just wait until you slip a thigh-grazing runway-esque boot over the top. Pow! For now, a perspex or mirrored heel is what we call #shoegoals. And have you met the butt-boosting super high waist skinnies yet? Their sculpting and lifting is second to none!
