The Denim Diary: My Top 5 Skinny Jeans 

Anyone who knows me knows that I am THE fussiest person when it comes to jeans, I am just never satisfied.

Skinny jeans are such a staple in my casual wardrobe, but finding a pair that I actually like is a big job, so I thought I’d share with you my top 5 pairs of skinny jeans, because if I like them, they’ve really been put through the tests.

Just a quick note, I do not have a set size in jeans, my sizing is all over the place which is one of the reasons I find it so hard to find skinny jeans that fit how I want them too.

As you’ll see, I favour high waisted jeans, and I like them to sit at my ankle and not ruffle up.

Next – Ripped Skinny Jeans – Black and Mid Blue – £28

I bought these jeans in the black first and loved them, so I decided to get them in the mid blue colour too. These jeans are so stretchy and comfortable and the rips sit really well on my legs. I like how high waisted they are too. I think these sizes come up quite big because I get a 6R and the legs are a little long and the waist could be slightly tighter but they’re comfy.

Topshop – Joni Jeans – Grey – £40

I can’t find these on the website anymore but they have the ripped version. I feel like everyone has a pair of Joni jeans because they’re so high waisted, very stretchy and super comfy, my only issue is they do fade in the wash so badly. Mine come up quite short, they’re a W28 L30.

Topshop – Jamie Jeans – Authentic Blue – £40

I do like Topshop jeans and I find the Jamie jeans feel more like denim and less like a ‘jegging’ like the Joni. I find these really comfortable and quite flattering and they fit round the waist really well but I did get them too short. They sit high waisted still and I don’t have any trouble with these fading.

Bershka – Skinny High Waisted Jeans – £21.99 @ ASOS

These are my newest denim purchase and I was a bit nervous as I bought these online but I’m actually really happy with the fit. They could be slightly tighter but maybe I bought a size too big, I got these in an 8. The material is very stretchy and comfortable and they sit nice and high. Very affordable. 

So that is my run down of my favourite jeans, I hope that has helped anyone looking for some new skinny jeans, as I said, I’m so fussy so if I like them, they’re doing well! 

Let me know what you’d like to see on the blog, I’m always after inspiration!
