Are these jeans naff?

Got a pair in the Boden sale. I think they are styled pretty horribly on the model here tbh. I am still not sure whether they are nice or not (it's the knee thing and the shade of blue).

If they were from Marks would I have started an "Oh no, how wrong are these jeans M&S?"

Over to you S&B, please give me your verdit. There's a few quid hanging on this (if they are returned)!

Thank you smile

It's not the patches that put me off (I have a patch pair) it's the shade of blue that looks wrong to me. Plus the patches look a bit too 'neat' imo.

Imo it's that the model is actually too skinny to pull this shape off - imagine her wider at the hip and everything falls into place ( no help if you're a size 6 OP, sorry)
The blue is Ok but I can only wear the black/ blue shade of denim as everything else looks too " Mom Jean" on me - and not in a good way.

Plus the heels are naff.

Sorry yes, they are a bit "mum jeans" . The shape isn't good and the color and patches are a bit try hard and not right.

No, they're bad. They don't even fit the model properly?

I don't like them personally.

They don't fit the model very well. Are they a good fit on you?

Oh dear God, they are frightful, sorry

I think we need to see them on you to decide. I actually like them but I don't like how they've been styled with those heels

Sorry, but they are not very nice.

I like the shape of them but hate the patches. It would also look 100% better if she didn't tuck the top in and wore pumps or boots with them instead of a court shoe.

Yes, with a loose shirt and trainers, they would look quite good I think. The styling here is terrible.

Thanks for putting me straight. They are a bit "mom" jeans aren't they?

Jesus wept, I should steer clear from the sales and just buy one pair of nice, decently cut, not too expensive indigo jeans and be done with it.

I will re-package these and pop to the post office tomorrow.

Thank you!

I always think if you're not sure of clothes when they first arrive, you should send them straight back. If you're not even excited about them when they're brand new it doesn't bode well!

I think you made the right choice FWIW. They're not THAT bad IMO but there's something not quite right about them, which is I guess why they ended up in the sale.

Shouldn't we all, but WHERE THE FK ARE THEY??

I ordered and returned these! I liked the patches etc but the fit was a bit baggy round the front... not a good look! blush

I like them . I think the blue is nice and I'm very fussy about the colour of my jeans .

The shape is okay but it's the patches and more especially that blue colour I'm not keen on..
