It seems that denim is having something of a comeback. Gone are the days of the standard pair of jeans and in are an array of alternative styles (think skinny, peg leg, boyfriend and even the 7/8 length). The old faithful jean has had a much needed 2010 facelift meaning you can wear your practical, comfy and versatile staples and be on-trend.


Luckily, after designers such as Chloe, D&G and Mulberry sent their models down the runway wearing head-to-toe denim, the highstreet has caught on which means us mere mortals can dabble in these denim delights for affordable prices. Maternity jeans are on fire, with hot-to-trot styles worthy of the catwalk and best of all, purse and baby bump friendly!

The birth of the 'jeggings' are a godsend for those wanting comfort and style all in one hit. A cross between jeans and leggings, these spray on styles are a great alternative - just make sure you opt for ones with pocket detailing as these are more flattering.

Kick flare

Don't be fooled into thinking these 70s comeback kick flares aren't contemporary. These gems give the illusion of longer (and slimmer) thighs with the visual trick of the kick flare, plus these can be dressed up or down perfectly.

Peg leg

The peg leg does exactly what it says on the tin. The jeans fit like a slouchy shape and are tapered at the ankle giving it a peg effect. Super flattering plus the slouchyness of the style keeps them comfy to boot!
