The Denim Guide

Discover the best styles for your body shape and lifestyle with our Denim Guide! A ‘HOW TO’ on choosing the perfect fit…

No matter your style, shape, age or lifestyle, there is a pair of jeans (or 12) out there that are PERFECT for you. Dress them up, dress them down, wear them all year round…your options are limitless. Whilst there may be one certain cut that flatters your figure the most, the notion that there is just ONE perfect pair out there for you should be dispelled. Every wardrobe needs a classic blue denim, a statement pair and a dark wash for the evenings. When choosing jeans, one must consider the fabric, fit and colour. Visit us this week for a complementary styling session where we will determine the best jeans for you!

For an effortless yet on trend jean, consider this white, high rise pair with a contrasting (and elongating) vertical stripe. The two tone denim means its a perfect daytime jean, looking great with a classic button up & flats. This has medium stretch and a slim leg, so will suit an athletic shape.

No surprises here why this jean is called the ‘Firecracker’! If you want to inject some excitement into your wardrobe, this is the pair. Mid rise and ultra skinny, this denim is super high stretch and terribly comfortable. Tone it down with neutrals and animal print, or colour clash with hot pink. If your legs are your feature, show them off!



paige denim


This crisp, white pair has the most beautiful handle – it’s so soft to touch and in a light weight cotton so you can wear it all year round. If you love BF cuts, this is a slightly more tailored and sophisticated alternative. Perfect for us ladies who have curves and like a cropped length! White is of course lovely for summer, but you can wear it in winter with a smart blazer too or do the all winter white look with a tonal knitted turtle neck.

This is one of our all-time favourite cuts! Dark washes are incredibly versatile and perhaps the easiest colour to dress up and down. But it’s the slim leg and subtly stitched 7/8 cuff that really makes this denim special. High rise jeans automatically elongate your figure,the slim leg shows off your shape but still keeps the proportions balanced and the 7/8 length means no cuffing required! At last!

For a super cruisy, ‘cool girl’ kind of jean, opt for this washed out blue denim. This is a great, vintage inspired colour that looks just as chic with florals as it does a t-shirt and blazer . If you’re short waisted, this is the right cut for you, being mid rise and skinny legged.

Back by popular demand but with an updated cut, the black velvet jean has arrived in store now. This is the ultimate jean to wear in the evening – the fabric is so luscious and really highlights silk blouses and different textures in your shirts. High rise and skinny legged, this velvet finish still has plenty of stretch so you can be dancing all night!


frank and eileen shirt


The classic cigarette leg calls for the equally iconic button up shirt. Whilst being mid rise and medium stretch, there’s nothing mediocre about this indigo washed jean. By accessorising your wardrobe staples, you can create a whole new look.

For a jean that’s working hard to make you look your best, invest in this super dark wash denim with contrasting stitching. It has just a small amount of give, but the waisted cut really flatters the figure and hugs you in all the right places. The straight leg silhouette helps balance proportions for women with more shapely legs and looks super swish with pumps and a duster coat.


smythe blazer


If you want to accentuate your waist and make your legs look longer, this high rise straight leg jean is the pair for you. Medium stretch means you can wear them all day long. Tuck a t-shirt in to draw the attention to your waist then finish off the look with a long line blazer and mules for that perfect, off duty style.

Even though there is a strong lean towards straight leg cuts this season, the skinny jean will always transcend seasons. This pair is both super skinny and super high rise, so if you have a long waist and want to elongate your legs, this is the best pair for you. With such a fitted jean, you can compliment your look with a relaxed sweater and jacket.


street style


For a pair of jeans that can keep up with your on-the-go lifestyle, look no further…This pair oozes effortless style. It’s on trend with it’s cropped length – a great cut if you’re a bit shorter but still love a straight leg style. The perfect mixture of stretch and strength, these will keep their shape all day. Throw on your favourite t-shirt and run out the door in style!



This week’s deluge of rain and accompanying drop in temperature has reminded us that Winter Is Coming! What better way to get ready for the new season than by investing in your winter whites? Or in this case, winter ivory…This pair is high rise, straight legged and in a medium weight cotton – perfect to pair with heels, knee high boots or loafers this winter.
