Whether you’re after a pair of black skinny jeans to wear with heels on an evening out or you want a slouchy pair of blue denim ones to wear around the house and on casual days. Nowadays there are so many different sizes, shapes and colours; you’re bound to find one you like on the high street. The wide range of jeans available is testament to the fact that they are so popular. As a versatile and staple item of clothing, they can be dressed up, worn with heels and a posh top or dressed down with fashion trainers and a slouchy t-shirt. ‘Jeans and a t-shirt’ is an iconic outfit every one of us must have worn, at least once. Because they’re so easy to wear, it’s important to find a pair of high street jeans that fit like a glove. A comfy pair of jeans can last a long time and are an investment you can get a great deal of wear from.
Be warned that finding the right pair should take time and you should be prepared to try on several pairs. You’ll find an absolute mind-field of variations – boot leg, flared, straight leg or skinny, low rise, high rise, high-waisted, dark, distressed and pale denim. It would be sensible to have an internet search before you head out to the shops. This way, you’ll get an idea of the style that you like before you arrive on the high street and feel overwhelmed with styles, colours and shapes…
