Jeans - boyfriend, washed out, ripped?

What jeans are you going to wear this spring?

I've seen some boyfriend in Hush that look nice. Has anyone got them?

Or getting some ripped jeans and pretending I'm not 40. I need a change from my Top Shop skinnies in various shades of grey ....

I did used to spend money on designer jeans - just not sure I can blow £200 anymore ... Especially if passing jean trend.

I think I'm going to get a pair of these - good price for something I'm not sure about, and as you say, could be a short-lived trend

Always ... I've just bought them. Great for the price but I have a sneaking suspicion that having worn them today, they have stretched a bit. Not a big problem but size down as far as you can!

I wear boyfriends a lot (am not going overboard with distressing) but actually I'm in love with a pair of mom jeans atm... wink I've seen perfectly good contenders at H&M.

I bought a ripped pair in Zara that won't break the bank and are fine for what you want them for. A passing trend.
I won't wear them every week, I reckon about 12-15 wears is about all I'll get out of them so zara it is!

Gini - I saw those and liked them. Might go for those and the hush boyfriend

I've heard good things about next denim too. Top shop don't seem the same anymore

Frugal - are the mom ones Top Shop high waist?

Gap are good for the distressed boyfriend jean - I bought them last year and have started to wear them again this week.

I'm sure they must have more this year.

Do they look nice with trainers? Have air max so they have a heel.

No, H&M but the TS ones look great too!

I have bought a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans to wear this spring. Im going to wear them with brogues when the weather warms up. Still not sure what to wear on my top half but i am determined to try new styles once in a while. I was stuck in a style rut for years so trying to branch out sometimes!

sonotkylie - thanks, I thought they might stretch (Next denim always seems to, doesn't it?), but hoping that doesn't matter too much with boyfriend fit?

The Topshop Mom jeans I have, do not have any stretch in them, so you have to get them at least a tiny bit loose.

Any feedback on the Hush boyfriends?

They're on back order now, someone must have them.....grin
