One of my pet hates about a pair of jeans is if it will lose shape and go baggy. As I always wear skinny jeans, I don't want this to happen so its a general trial and error as to what brands are the best fit. This is obviously going to be very different for each body type. Here is a quick guide on the many brands of jeans, conjured up by the opinions of myself, others and just general fact.

Old School

You can always count on those trusty old faithfuls such as Diesel and Levi. The greatest thing about Levi is that they last for years and can be lounged about in without starting to look scruffy and lose shape. Diesels are more flattering to a skinnier shape and probably's best selling jeans brand. They are stretchy and don't lose shape. I have not heard many bad remarks about either jean brand, in fact not really any at all. Maybe this is why both brands have had a continued success all these years and become the go-to brands when wanting a decent pair of jeans. In the past I have bought my jeans from Topshop with the knowledge that wearing them every day means they're not going to last and will have to be bought again. The question is, is it really worth it when fans of Diesel and Levi are priding themselves in jeans that last years. I was recently sorting out all my old jeans, rooting through which I wanted to keep and get rid of. At the bottom of my drawer I found an old pair of Diesel, soft to touch and a nice fade, the only thing was that they were a flared jean which I don't wear any more so decided to sell them on Ebay and I still got a lot for them because of their name. Its a name they trust. This is my favourite pair of Diesels from Love the shade and love the shape.

TIP: Having a pair of jeans faded on the front and backs of the jeans enables your legs to look slimmer, so if your self conscious about your legs, opt for this style. Understanding this is like when putting on your make-up. If you use a highlighter on the cheekbones, you are creating a contour to achieve the effect of the face having a different shape i.e.. higher cheekbones. This in effect is what the jeans are doing.

High End

If your looking for something a little more high end fashion, treat yourself to a pair of designer ones. For a long time I've heard of the brand True Religion. This being from seeing and hearing about them in magazines about what jeans celebrities are wearing. These and J Brand jeans are what I hear the most. Many of you may be thinking that you wouldn't pay the price for these but many people believe that its all about the quality and cut that is the difference between these brands over others. Check out these Lee jeans that Vivienne Westwood has put her name to, so you are getting a good quality jeans brand with an input from a decent designer.

Colour Pop

Its been a long time since people have been wearing only the standard blue denim colour of jeans. I have a pair in practically every colour. For the summertime I choose more pastelly shades and for Winter its more maroon, rustic colours. Instead of the usual pink girly colours, opt for a mint green like this one for something a little different but still Summery.

Quirky Prints

This season, colour has not been the only option for a visual difference. Try a pair of patterned jeans; I've seen loads of unusual patterns from leopard print to polka dot. This is a daring look and not one everyone would choose to wear, so if your feeling like you want a pair but not too shocking, try this Maison Scotch pair that are the colour of a usual pair of jeans but with a faded background print. This is more discreet than an 'in your face' pattern.

Raw Denim

For a very unique take on a pair of jeans, the best choice is a raw denim. This is basically a pair of denim jeans that have had absolutely no work done to them in the factory, no wash, no effect. Therefore the object of this is to create your own effect. Wear them everyday with something unusual in the pocket. In time this will show up as a faded mark in the shape you created and this is what I mean by creating your own pair of jeans. By choosing raw denim you will also create your own fit. I'm definitely going to have a go at this, they're not even more expensive.


Its not just the brand or price that determines how good you look in a pair of jeans, you've got to get the right size. The best way to look at it is to start at the bottom and know that a 26" is an 8 and a European size 38. Everything works their way up in 2's but at we also stock in between sizes to ensure the perfect fit.
