As far as shopping experiences go, finding a great pair of jeans on the high street used to be tough (IRL or online, tbh). But over the past few years, there’s been an influx of affordable styles, lengths and shapes that suit every body shape. It’s no longer good enough that “cheap” jeans should feel cheap, so gone are the days of ill-fitting saggy pairs made of fabric that quickly wears away.
Seeing as I only have one body (and different figures suit different jeans), I decided to put the question to our Facebook group, So… Should I Buy This? on the jeans they rate on the high street right now. There were some brands that were mentioned several times, and while I wouldn’t say there were any surprises, it’s clear that jeans have a lot of people talking, with over 40 people responding within minutes.
All of the brands and pairs mentioned had a few things in common. Firstly, they were devoid of any embellishments—no fringing, tears, or coatings, which is very in line with the biggest jeans trends for 2021. On the whole, they tended to be high rise and straight leg, although there were a few wide-leg and skinnies creeping in there too. Below, you’ll see examples of influencers wearing the brands that are recommended by our readers, and the styles that they love. Keep scrolling for the best high-street jeans edit.
