This High-Street Brand Has Created the Perfect Pair of Straight-Leg Jeans

No, finding the perfect pair of straight-leg jeans is not exactly breaking news, but the fact that I have discovered that & Other Stories' Keeper Jeans tick all my boxes feels like a small win, and honestly, I'll take all the wins I can get right now. As I have discovered, purchasing straight-leg denim seems to be that little bit harder than shopping for, say, skinny jeans or "mom" jeans. Why? Well, the definition of "straight" seems to be loosely interpreted across the market, with some inching towards a wide leg and others being more akin to a slim fit. Maybe it's just my fanaticism when it comes to fashion, but there really is a fine balance to be found when it comes to denim, so bear with me. & Other Stories' Keeper Cut Cropped Jeans have it all: a high-waisted fit, a not-to...

One Perfect Pair of Jogging Bottoms Worn 5 Different Ways

Who did the PR for banana bread and stretchy waistbands this year? Because honestly, they're the real winners when it comes to the pandemic. A year (!) into working from home, not only have I perfected my banana bread recipe but stretchy waistbands and I are very well acquainted. In fact, I've become so reliant on softer clothes that I've been wondering how my new wardrobe will work when we re-enter the more sociable world. There's one item in particular that I'm reluctant to stop wearing, and that's the perfect pair of grey joggers. Being an inventive fashion journalist, I've got the solution: Make them work with outfits that are also great for other activities that don't involve anything to do with baking or sitting at a computer.When I bought a grey tracksuit from Zara a few months a...

Every Fashion Expert Is Buying a Pair Of These Anti-Skinny Jeans

I want to start this by saying that just because there's plenty of evidence to suggest that no one is really wearing skinny jeans right now, that doesn't mean you have to get rid of them entirely. Fashion is fickle but it loves nostalgia and resurrecting trends, so it's very likely that at some point in the not-to-distant future, drainpipes will once again be à la mode. For now, though, the hottest silhouette around is the barrel leg jean. But what, I hear you cry, does that actually mean? We first had these style of jeans on our radar back in 2017 when Whistles launched its version and we saw it taking off. The Whistles signature barrel-leg jeans have a high-rise waist, loose-fitting legs and are cropped just above the ankle. I consider them akin to mom jeans but smarter. With jean tre...

I Suddenly Want a Pair of Leather Trousers and These Are the Best Ones

The other factor that is also helping to push this look further is the introduction of high-quality vegan leather designs. Cult brand Nanushka could be accredited with really spearheading this movement, but you'll now find cool faux-leather iterations across designer houses and at high street stores—I've noticed Mango is particularly good for them.  Keep scrolling to shop out the best leather trousers from designer brands, affordable stores and also faux leather creations.I've become a woman possessed—I simply must own a pair of leather trousers this year. It's really rare that this kind of desire sweeps over me; for a fashion editor I actually buy very little. So when the urge comes, I know I should follow it as 99.9 per cent of the time, it results in a sensible purchase that I'll get...

1 Perfect Pair of H&M Jeans, Worn 5 Ways

If you were to poll women on the item they find most difficult to shop for, I'd hazard a guess and say that jeans are very high on the list (perhaps even only second to swimwear). It is a universal understanding that finding the perfect pair of jeans is akin to finding a needle in a haystack, especially when you take into account the fact that sizes, silhouettes and trouser lengths tend to vary significantly across different brands.Standing at the relatively tiny stature of 5'1" shopping for jeans has been a difficult endeavour for as long as I can remember, which is why I was so pleased with my most recent high-street purchase. Nestled in amongst H&M's 306-strong women's denim section I managed to find to find a pair of jeans that not only fits me, but successfully ticks the box of...

The Best Gap Button-Down Shirts to Pair With Pajama Bottoms Now (and Real Pants Later)

Sure, workplace fashion has been all over the place for the last year, considering many of us were - and still are - working from home. And, we'd bet even those who dress up daily to do so sometimes hit a snag, and anyone who's still going strong in the loungewear department occasionally wants to kick it up for an important meeting. Well, that's where a dress shirt comes in. While you can obviously wear them tucked into jeans and pants, they can be just as chic tied at the waist with denim cutoffs or left open over maxis, too. Gap has several classic cuts, from oversize to slim fit, that you'll want to style and restyle for years to come. No matter if you're still wearing pajamas down below, you can still look all buttoned-up on top with our picks ahead. Related: ...
