I have always struggled with wearing jeans. It wasn't until I actually started working for Topshop as a Denim Specialist that I even took any note of what was going on in the world of jeans as I had given up trying to find a flattering pair on a student budget but as I learnt what was out there and what worked for me and I have finally discovered why denim will always be a woman's wardrobe staple.
I started off as an avid Leigh fan, then last summer made a dramatic move over to the Jamie jean but when Topshop released their new shapes early this SS I couldn't keep my eyes off this pair of Acid Wash Black Mom jeans. Topshop are renowned for doing skinny jeans (and not much else) so it is nice to see they have jumped on the boyfriend jean bandwagon without making them look too boyish, which I have found with other brands. The high waisted shape keeps that feminine feel and they definitely aren't too baggy! With the Levi 501's/90's trend still going strong, it isn't a surprise these are jeans to be seen in this summer.
As always with a black(ish) jean, they literally go with just about everything making them more an investment than anything. I decided to go for a buttoned up shirt and gold and leather based accessories for a clean and dressed up 90's inspired feel but I cannot wait to get wear these with crop tops/jumpers and vans on more chilled out days when I finally get around to having one!
