LOOK's Sarah-Rose Harrison has finally found her ultimate pair of jeans and at under £30 she just had to share them with you...
So despite being, a very average, 5 foot 6′ finding a pair of jeans that I don’t need to chop the hems off before wearing is almost impossible. I’ve got a longer upper body than lower and so shopping for jeans is never really fun, and I try on options already thinking of how I’ll need to shorten them.
Whilst I’m now a dab-hand at turn-up’s and DIY-ing a raw hem it’s left me dreaming of the perfect pair of jeans that I could wear as they were made to be worn, original hem and all. So when I stumbled across this dreamy mid-rise cropped straight-leg style from (my beloved) Marks & Spencer I was (unsurprisingly) thrilled. At just £25 it’s hard not to pick up a pair in every shade, and M&S have options Light Grey, Indigo and Bleached – covering you for every possible occasion!
I opted for the summery bleached style, for now, but will absolutely be purchasing the other two wash options when pay-day comes around…
Buying jeans and finding the right pair is often so much harder than it needs to be as you have to think about and consider so many factors, such as: fit, shape, wash, proportions, fastenings, hems and detailing. Which is why this style is such a treat to try-on and buy as they’re so straightforward and classic. Ankle skimming jeans are so great for a shorter leg, helping to get the proportions right, and whilst I love how slimming the straight-leg fit is by having a, higher than usual, mid-rise they actually sit quite naturally at my waistline giving a more relaxed almost mom-jean styled look without the worry of a camel toe.
To me, jeans are such a personal buy. They’re so much more than just a trend lead piece, I want a pair that make me feel good (and comfortable) whether I’m wearing them whilst cleaning my flat or, out for dinner and this lovely pair from trusty M&S tick all the boxes.
