What to Buy at the Sales - Jeans

This is an item about which I always say: if you find a model that fits you perfectly, flatters your figure and you love, buy in bulk, two or three more pairs, you will not regret it. Especially if they are a classic cut such as boot-cut, your investment in several copies of the same thing will last for a few seasons. What to go for right now? Almost everything, as there are so many fashionable styles out there it has never been so easy to find the perfect fit.

  • Boyfriend jeans: these are the relaxed type, wide and worn-looking. They will be big next spring and summer, especially teamed up with skimpy tops and colourful sandals. Find the best ones in Topshop and H&M.
  • Skinny jeans: the easiest to find and very easy to wear with Ugg boots, ankle boots, black, brown..the bulkier the better as it will bring the attention to your feet whilst making your legs look thinner. Trust me on this one. They are everywhere, H&M, Zara, Bershka, Diesel...go figure.
  • Wide-legged: My all-time favourites. This season has brought the high-waisted type, but there are lower cut versions at Levi's, Topshop, etc.

FOR THE GUYS: Trust Jack and Jones for the latest cuts, very relaxed fabrics, worn attitude. For richer colour, deep dark, picture-perfect jeans go to GAP. And if you fancy wearing skinny, but are unsure, head to Diesel, where they have a couple of fitted examples that will define your legs without strangling them. For an even tighter look, Levi's is the place to go.

Overall, sales is a time to focus on jeans that suit you, so forget fast trends that don't convince you 100% and if you can, invest in quality. Happy shopping!!
