Wardrobe Staples | Topshop Jeans

So I heard it on the grapevine that low rise jeans are back 'in'. Is anyone else cringing at the thought of their 14-year-old self wearing low rise jeans with lacy french knickers poking out of the top and thinking they were the absolute BOMB? No thank you, I for one never want to wear low rise jeans ever again. So I'm going to calmly ignore that fact (and the inevitability that I'll see them looking amazing on hundreds of Instagram girls, go out and buy a pair and then sob into a big bowl of pasta when I realise they ain't for me) and I'm going to talk about the kind of jeans that I do like, but specifically talk about my love of Topshop jeans.

I'm pretty brand loyal when it comes to jeans, in fact I only own one pair that isn't Topshop. It's very much a case of 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' as in I bought my first pair of Topshop jeans age 16 and never bothered shopping around anywhere else because they fit me perfectly, they're comfortable and they're actually pretty affordable especially when you consider price per wear. My oldest pair of Topshop jeans are at least 6 years old and they're still going strong so in terms of value for money they're great. Here's a lil' round up of my beloved Topshop jeans collection:



Jamie | These are my oldest pair - simple high rise skinnies in a faded pale blue denim (I have extremely technical denim description skills I know). They're a classic staple in my wardrobe and are my go to when I just need a pair of no frills jeans that will go with anything. Because they're skinny and my thighs are not the smallest in the land they're not the most flattering on me, but I love them and who needs to always be wearing clothes that make them look thinner anyway? They make me look the size that I am and there's nothing wrong with that.



Mom | Firstly, can I mention that it's a real pet peeve of mine that these are called 'Mom' jeans and not 'Mum'. Anyway, these are high waisted mum fit jeans in a darker denim colour, which I absolutely love. They do still go with most things, but I have a tendency to wear them with tops that I can tuck into them otherwise I risk looking a little shapeless. I also have a real tendency to wear them with stripes because that combination is oh so dreamy.



Embroidered | I was obsessed with these jeans throughout autumn and spring, but they took a little break over summer and I'm not really sure why because I love them (as you may know by the fact that they've featured on this blog approx 1000 times). They're high waisted and a straight leg fit, which is the most flattering shape on me. There's also the addition of the embroidery, which I've said a million times that I love because it's blue so you can still wear the jeans with just about anything.

I'll take a moment at the end of this post to say RIP to my black Joni jeans, which I quite literally wore until there was a hole in the crotch and will be replacing as soon as autumn swings round because they were the comfiest skinny jeans I've ever worn.

Where do you buy jeans from?

  1. Oooh I am in the market for new jeans. Currently all of mine are from Massimo Dutti but I keep thinking I should branch out.

  3. I've never tried Topshop jeans because I find fitting into jeans properly super hard! I usually have to go to GAP for ones that fit me and I like the look of! xxx

    1. Oooh I've never tried GAP for jeans! Jeans shopping is so difficult, that's why I do it all at Topshop because I know they'll fit! xx

  4. I've never actually bought jeans from Topshop but my sister is as similarly obsessed as you, so I may have to go and make a purchase! My trouble with jeans is that I'm a little out of proportion (wide hips and big bum combined with a small waist) so I can't get a size 8 over my ass, but a size 10 is huuuge on the waist! *sob* I've been searching for the perfect pair for years without success! Your Joni jeans look like they fit you perfectly though, I'm going to head to my local Topshop ASAP to try on some myself!

    1. Ah that must be annoying for high waisted ones! I have big hips though and the Topshop ones fit well! The Joni jeans are great, they tend to hug your figure so they'd probably be a good bet for you! xx

  6. I love any kind of jeans, I am such a fan of jeans :) So mum - or mum :) - boyfriend, embroidered... any kind, as I said :) But if I had to choose one kind, it would be embroidered, since it combines two things I love - embroidery and jeans :) Your embroidered jeans are really great! Hope you have a lovely week!

  9. I think I might have to revisit Topshop for jeans, I had a pair of Leigh jeans from there once, they were the WORST quality and I've never returned. But so many people seem to rave about them and I love the look of all of the ones in these post so maybe I just made a bad choice! I actually have never found a pair of jeans that fits me properly, I either cant get them on over my bum or I can get them on and the waist is massive. Got some that fit both my hips and waist the other day from H&M but they're WAY too long so I'm going to have to cut them (I'd say turn them up but I deffo wont be sewing haha) xxx

    1. Oh I never sew I just roll them up haha! I've never had Leigh jeans before so I'm not sure about those - the thicker denim ones are definitely better quality from Topshop - I have the same issue but the Jamie ones fit me perfectly! xx

  10. Haha, I totally went through the low rise and french knicker phase. We had flared jeans too!
