If you were a size 14, 40 something what jeans would you buy for everyday wear?
I'm 5'7" a size 14 with a tummy. I usually wear skinnies but only under leggings rules ie. Must have a bottom covering top or in warmer weather boyfriend jeans. I've only ever bought cheapo jeans and think it's time to get a really good everyday pair. I wonder of being my size and age I ought to move onto straight legs really although Im wary of anything that could make me look frumpy. Somehow I need to tread the fine line between mutton and frump. Any ideas?
I recently got a pair of Not Your Daughters Jeans in a charity shop for £6 brand new. They cost c £120-150. I always swore I would never pay silly money for jeans but I'm a convert. They are super flattering, good stretch, highish waist and a dark colours they also have ankle zips which I like. Many different leg styles. So worth looking. If you cost per wear them it works out pretty well.
I would like a side fastening pair of jeans if anyone can recommend?
I'm a 5ft8 40something size 14, and I'd second the Asos Ridley recommendation. I go for the 34" inside leg, but I've got long legs and a short body, so if you've got more balanced proportions you might want to give the 32" a go.
