Want (need!) skinny black jeans with ripped knees - prepared to spend a decent amount
I saw some in the Baukjen sale, but while I like their jersey tops and jumpsuits their jeans aren'tmy cup of tea, the freya are too flimsy for me. Want a decent pair like these but more substantial denim. I'm 5t 7 (and a half) I'm a size 10 in most jeans (27 inch waist, 36 inch hips) but I have a long back (think Kate Middleton type figure but not as slim as her) so I tend to have to go for size28/29 depending on stretch to allow for a high waist www.baukjen.com/uk/baukjen-sale/trousers-sale/freja-ripped-stretch-skinny-jeans-caviar-black.htm Excuse the mess - it's half term and I'm having to work and do housework!
I don't really rate Topshop jeans- I have a black skinny pair and find they lose their colour/shape so easily after a few washes (but so many people adore them so I must be in the minority!) ASOS Ridley jeans are much better imo but they are high waisted.
All Saints Grace Slashed Jeans are great but a little pricey so depends how you define a decent amount, check out Dr Denim too- they have so many different fits of skinny jeans and off the top of my head it's the Lexie or Dixy you'll want for the ripped knees. I have a few pairs from Dr Denim now and more people need to know about them!
