Now the skinny jean scene has been stormed my mom jeans, boyfriend jeans and wide-leg rips of late, it’s time for a new cut to occupy pride of place in our denim affections. Enter the ‘strinny’ jean, also known as the straight leg skinny, as coined by the denim gods that be, J Brand.
Part off-duty relaxed chic and part tailored enough to be dressed up with a jacket and heels, the strinny jean is set to be the new go-to for your evening and weekend wardrobe. And don’t worry – there are plenty of high-street alternatives to J Brand’s £200 offering.
We recommend Zara, French Connection or Gap for some seriously high fash but wearable options, but if you can stretch to it, the J Brands really cut the mustard. Pair with a super cuddly furry overcoat and boots for AW14 cool or dress them up with a cami and strappy sandals at night for a little edge to your outfit. Whatever you do, invest in the strinny jean this month. We guarantee it will become your new denim BFF.
