My Autumn Staple

Ok, my father has never owned a pair of jeans but I would be hard pushed to find anyone born post 1950 to be in the same boat. They are totally my default Autumn Winter bottom half, mainly in black.  No one in my family understands why I *need another pair of black, however I am hoping you get it. Some you need to be stretchy for Little Gym, some high waisted for tighter tops, some cropped to flash the tanned ankle, some ripped when you are feeling edgy some some smart for supper with the in laws etc etc.

My preferred style at the moment is high waisted. I didn’t get it for a while, I thought they might look a bit mumsy. More fool me! They are amazing, they hold the muffin top in and there is no baring that ‘builder’ top bit when you bend over.

So I have searched high and low for some black jeans and have put together a little selection depending what you are looking for.  House of Fraser has the largest selection of brands so that’s where I am starting!

Mint Velvet – Black Triple Zip Skinny Jean £79 

Fancy the biker look? These tough jeans hold you in place and also the zips are well placed to flatter.


If they are good enough for Rosie Huntington Whitely – they are sure good enough for me!


Paige – Margot High Rise Skinny Jean £200 

High rise and keep their fit – skin tight! That’s what you are paying for – no saggy bum with these.


Wear with boots for effortless cool (if you can lookalike this high five!)


Hudson – Mid Rise Super Skinny £165 

Mid rise and super soft.  Perfect for trundling around after your toddler without the worry of tearing the knees.


Et Voila!


J Brand – Mi Rise Luxe Sateen Super Skinny £190

Want some more eveningy jeans? These coated ones will smarten you up.


Style with grey cashmere to soften the look.


White Stuff – Straight Leg £49.50 

Straight legs are great if you don’t want to emulate a sausage. It brings balance to the top half and is actually perhaps more flattering than skinny but I do prefer skinny so they go easily into my boots. However, it you wear flats or trainers – these are cute.


Here is a good look to emulate if you are into flats.


High, low, biker or coated? I am doing them all this season as I do every season! xx
