For a good 10 years now I’ve been a devout skinny jean girl. They lengthen the legs, can be dressed up or down and are a super easy, “throw on” style. I’ve tried them all, starting with my very first pair from a little known brand, Radley, to my everyday Topshop skinnies in the super stretch Leigh style. I have them in every colour – classic blue, blackest black, candy pink, cream with crochet hems, red with gold stud seams…but recently I had a slight change of heart in the form of these high waisted, dark denim, flared jeans. They pull in the waist, makes legs look endlessly long and push up a pert bottom. I gave them their first outing during London Fashion Week and have never received so many compliments on a pair of jeans. Give them a go and stand out from the sea of skinnies.
