Wait until you see this...

We’re not exaggerating when we say the words ‘jean shopping’ are two of the terrifying in the entire English language. So, continuing our perpetual quest to make shopping a stress-free ordeal, we’ve trialed River Island’s must-have denim so you don’t have to. Our verdict? Let’s just say we’re not surprised #IHaveThisThingWithRIDenim is trending…

Here’s what each Look team member has to say about their fave pairs:

‘As far as problems go, being tall isn’t the end of the world but, when it comes to jeans shopping, it makes life pretty difficult. FYI high street, half mast is not the look I’m going for. But these jeans? They actually cover my ankles, which is nothing short of a miracle.’

‘As far as I’m concerned, skinny jeans are Donald Trump the Devil. Don’t get me wrong, I <wish> I could pull them off, but I can’t get past those piped sausage connotations. Enter my newfound faves. Part mom, part boyfriend, part ever-so-stylishly mauled by a tiger, these jeans have converted me to the blue side, thanks in part to the nipped-in waist and straight leg cut.’

‘I’m a ‘buy the same pair every.single.time’ kinda girl and the MO is always the same: slim leg, dark shade, high waist. So, it was a total shocker when these mid-rise, cropped, ripped jeans stole my heart. The length’s super-flattering (by some miracle it doesn’t touch the floor), and I love how they give a smart (read: worky) shirt a casual downplay. Sure, they’ll look cool with kicks but heels? He-llo new go-to outfit.’

‘These jeans are the perfect skinny style, not only are they extremely comfy, but they’re smart enough to wear to dinner too, I just pop on some heels and then I’m good to go. Plus they’re pretty flattering too, lengthening your legs and lifting your tush! What’s not to love?’

‘Finding the perfect skinny jean is like finding rain in a drought: useless and disappointing. Okay, if you haven’t seen the Hilary Duff Cinderella reboot you’ll have no idea what I’m blabbering on about, but what I’m trying to say is that these jeans are like gold dust. They fit like a glove and cling to all the right places (in a non-pervy way), while the cute embroidery is the icing on the #ootd cake. River Island, I salute you.’
