Talk to me about jeans!

Not necessarily which brand, but which style I should be trying on?

Ever since DD was born (now 2) I've lived in jeggings. I really feel the time is right to get back into a "proper" pair of jeans, but have no idea what style is trendy nowadays and what might suit my figure.

I am short (5'3"); size 10-12; still have a flabby tummy post-baby & relatively ample bum and hips. Mid 30s.

I'd guess boot leg. Slim at waist and thigh, slight flare at ankle to cover boot/high heel. Slight flare can help create hour glass look? And elongate a leg.

I'd look at Levi's who do great jeans now. Check them out online

There was a thread a couple of days ago about someone finding a perfect boot cut pair in Tesco's.
I always struggle too, I do agree about the Levi's - I tried some on as DD is 2 too and they were lovely, however, not cheap so didn't love them that much!
Only thing I've found now is that they have to have some stretch in them.

New style is a colour down the front and black side seams. J brand do some but pricey. Seen cheaper in limited collection in m&s.
