I think it's time to find something to run alongside my skinny jeans. Moving gently I think straight leg is the way to go. Don't fancy flares, boot cut, crops finishing half my up my shins....

I'm 5'7 size 10 with good legs but a bit of a tum.

Can you share your favourite straight leg jean?

I bought a pair fairly recently from Next. I'm new to straight leg jeans, but love these so much I wear them all the time. I'm 5ft 7 or 8 and bought the longer length.

I think it really depends on your shape - Apple, pear, hour glass etc

I recommend Gap Mid rise classic, really good jeans not too baggy, a nice slim cut , but i also have tum but slimmish hips and they work well. They come up quite big on sizing I have found . ..I have them in Indigo and coal

Ooh cross post with @Laska2Meryls
Have to agree, I love my Gap jeans, such good denim and great styles.

I size down for gap too.

Thanks Doje. I haven't bought Next jeans for years. But they were a staple in my wardrobe for a long time before that.

Laska and Ella yes, really like those Gap jeans! Think I'll give those a go.

Not too sure what shape I am. I'm not apple or pear. Possibly an inverted triangle - broadish shoulders with narrow hips

I'm 5ft 7" ish too and around a 10. Love gap jeans. Always a good fit whatever style. I never but anything else from there.

Brassica you sound like me, same shape.. I find those Gap jeans the best of all for my body shape I have had, they also wash brilliantly and I haven't found mine bag

I ought to start a trainer convo next. I was in my nearest city today but felt too old to head into any of the trainer shops. grin
