Next relaxed skinny jeans are fab

Thought I'd share - I discovered these at the weekend and they are such a good cut, skinny enough to tuck into the banned knee high boots but not too tight or low cut. They even do petite length which is great as I am a shortarse. I've bought 2 pairs and the best thing of all is that I was able to go down a size - I can't remember the last time I got my lardy arse curves into a size 12 smile

I like the next skinny lift and shape jeans the bootcuts are just as good.

will take a look. my favorite jeans i have are next sexy slim leg petite but they don't seem to make that cut anymore.

They're brill aren't they? I bought some a few weeks ago (as I've been unable to track down any Gap High Rise Skinnies) and I love them! I've only been able to get them in the distressed wash as all other colours appear to be out of stock! I went down a size in them too and actually might consider going down another size when I buy my next pair as they do give quite a bit.

I tried on the lift and shape jeans but they weren't very flattering on me unfortunately.

Oooh-they sound good! Can you link to them please?

I bought some but the colour faded very quickly.

Iggly I find fabric sofener is something that causes clothing to fade faster. Also washing and drying them inside out helps too.

Iggly Wed 24-Oct-12 16:39:23

Thanks Little. I only washed them once and they faded loads!

Can a size 14-16 look ok in (these) skinny jeans?

dexter73 Wed 24-Oct-12 20:03:05

Of course you can Eliza22!

I have this jumper and it looks great with skinnies as it is longer at the back so covers up my bum!

I bought a white pair in the summer and also had to buy a size smaller (and think I should have bought 2 sizes smaller, in hindsight) However, they are very loose on the hips for me so I think they are cute for pears rather than apples

ThatVikRinA22 Wed 24-Oct-12 20:46:13

marking place.....but do they all have those turn ups? not sure im keen on the turn ups....

SorrelForbes Wed 24-Oct-12 21:40:54

They have a different colour lining so you can roll/turn them up for a different look but I leave mine rolled down.

ThatVikRinA22 Wed 24-Oct-12 22:17:03

ah....might try them then.

Eliza22 I am a size 14 (but a 12 in these) and I think they look fine on me, the cut is very flattering because it's not skintight. If in doubt just wear them with a longer top.

HappyHalloweenMotherFucker Thu 25-Oct-12 07:26:22

yy, I waxed lyrical about the white ones in the summer, and keep meaning to go back and get another pair in a darker colour but wasn't sure if they were still the same cut and comfortable material

I love them...what colours are there ? In the summer they had white and this funny banana shade I didn't like

Eliza22 Thu 25-Oct-12 22:44:50

Ooh, might try then!

Just got back from New York for my birthday. Photos of me in boot cut Esprit jeans. NOT good.

Will have a look smile
