Girlfriend jeans are the latest shape to storm the high street and are the pair to invest in now. Here’s why.
We know when it comes to jean shopping, life can get very confusing. Do you go for a dark wash or light, a blue denim or black? Mom, boyfriend, flared or skinny? The choices are endless and it can be seriously tricky to find your perfect pair and with denim being talk of the town at the moment, it’s important that you get it right.
But worry not ladies, we’re here to make your shopping life a little easier with this news – there’s only one staple jean you need this season. And it’s the girlfriend.
First hitting high street stores in 2014, girlfriend jeans have quickly become the ultimate pick for us. Still staying strong for Autumn/Winter, these are the style’s to see you right through the season’s.
So what exactly are they you ask? Well, Topshop Jeans Buyer, Keda Rick explained to Marie Claire that, “Girlfriend jeans are a more feminine version of the boyfriend.”
With a tapered, straighter and slimmer leg, the new shape is totally flattering and should jump straight to the top of your wish lists. Much easier to wear than most shapes, they are also totally celeb-approved.
So here we go, these are our ultimate picks from the high street:
Topshop always seem to score high on our weekly wish list, so we were excited to find out that this particular pair of girlfriend jeans have been crafted from comfort-stretch denim – which means they’re perfect for everyday wear.
H&M’s Girlfriend denim is the baddest of the bunch. Rips, turn ups and plenty of pocket detailing, team these with your sexiest shoes and leather jacket for the ultimate date outfit.
Mango’s ‘Lonny’ jeans are the perfect style for off duty cool. The dark wash denim goes perfectly with a crisp white tee or lumberjack shirt and high top Converse.
We love Autograph at Marks & Spencer’s Girlfriend Jeans, available in three shades. The subtle turn up is a great nod to that 70’s trend we just can’t seem to shake. Don’t forget to team with ankle boots like trendsetter Fearne Cotton.
No too baggy, not too skinny, chic yet comfortable – what are you waiting for, get to the high street now and slip into the coolest jeans of 2015!
