Is there ANYTHING nice in Next?

I'm in dire need of some new clothes & have a Next account that I can use. I've not bought anything from there for ages at it all just seemed a bit meh last time I looked.

Is there anything decent in there? In particular I'm looking for black leggings with tummy covering, skinny jeans (high rise if poss) and perhaps some ankle boots & going out tops. I'm a 10/12 (well 10 in Next sizing)

Went in for skinny jeans yesterday and tried on their legging jeans - ACE! Just a perfectly fitting skinny, proper denim feel, first ones that don't give me a weird bum/camel toe grin

They've got some good fur trimmed brown ankle boots too.

Rest - on a very quick skim - bit bleugh.

I've had Next jeans in the past. They go baggy really quickly. I wouldn't waste money on them again.

I have a £30 voucher and there's NOTHING I want to spend it on. It's all grey.

No.

I also had a £25 voucher and couldn't find anything I liked there last week, not one thing! Maybe online is better than in store?? I ended up spending it on DCs for a change sad

I used to like Next jeans as 10 petite was a perfect fit for me. They are now made of very thin fabric with so much stretch that it doesn't feel like real denim - and much bigger. I don't mind being an 8 but it is just vanity sizing. I have bought some much nicer ones at Sainsburys (classic rise boyfriends) for about 1/2 the price.

I have £115 (!) in gift vouchers to spend...some of them I've had for a year

The last time I got given Next gift vouchers I spent them on stuff the kids needed and spent the money elsewhere instead.

Not looking too promising hmm although those ankle boots are quite nice. I've got 2 pairs of Next high-waisted jeans & they've just gone a funny shape. The straight legged ones bend at the knees and just look silly.

Anyone else rate the jeggings?

No.

Ugh, Next. So drab and plastic and boring. They only ever seem to sell grey, black, blush and shit yellow. With the odd bit of forest green. Yuk yuk. No where else has this drab dull colour palette....and the styling...well there isn't any really. Just trashy looking

SundaySimmons Fri 27-Sep-13 17:25:42

Next are crap.

dexter73 Fri 27-Sep-13 17:29:15

I have that jumper too Betsy!! I also bought a navy textured jacket in the sale for £14 that DMB40 has.

Orangeanddemons Fri 27-Sep-13 17:29:21

Oh, and mink...wtf is that colour? Do they have a massive job lot of mink shit that they need to sell year after year?

I always feel a bit massproduced and mumsy in NEXT, but sometimes needs must! end of month account card spend

As a rule I don't like next womens clothing at all but I did think they had some nice jeans and jumpers yesterday when I went to get ds some clothes. Nice soft coated jean if you fancy some of them.

TalkativeJim Fri 27-Sep-13 17:55:11

There is nothing nice in Next. Ever.

They must work quite hard at it.

Jeans are shite I bought coloured skinnies I was able to wear once before they bagged. I spend vouchers on sunglasses or home stuff

cocolepew Fri 27-Sep-13 17:59:59

I have their relaxed skinny jeans and love them.

ConfusedDotty Fri 27-Sep-13 18:00:15

No nothing unless you are a 3 year old.

squoosh Fri 27-Sep-13 18:00:43

<awkward silence after cocolepew's revelation>

I only shop in Next for my DSs.
