Favourite jeans

If I went upstairs and counted all my jeans (including cords), I reckon I must have around 15 pairs-gulp!! Well, I'm not getting rid of any of them, as I really love jeans in general.
I'm a fan of wide legged, flares, stretch, skinnies, straight, low rise, high waisted. Not overkeen on bootleg, but I'll never say never, of course. I also love white jeans, light wash, indigo, coloured and a just plain normal wash.
I've pairs by Levi's, Miss Sixty, 7 For All Mankind, See By Chloe, Ralph Lauren, Gap, Lee Cooper, Anglomania (Viv Westwood), Michiko Koschino (Japanese) and H&M.

So, why is it, that the cheapest pair I've bought-£1.30, from the charity shop, by a make I've never even heard of-Rebel (I think a high street chain make, maybe) are my current absolute faves?? I'm loving the length-I purposely like them above my ankle bone, as I can wear them with ankle boots and it shows the details of them. I also like how I can wear them rolled up. The colour for me is great-I know a light wash isn't in trend at the moment, but I'm just hooked on the colour. The best bit is the stretch and huggy-ness of them and that they are quite high waisted too-no bum cleavage, thankfully!!

What are you favourite jeans of the moment-are they 'on trend' or just 'personal favourites'?

Oh just personal favourites that I'll cry about if they fall apart, one from Lucky jeans and the other from aber crombie and fitch - both bought in NY.

My others are skinnies from Tophshop (on second pair) and wide leg flares from H&M, that is it!

During those years where we could ONLY find bootleg I had ONE pair of jeans because I hated that style on me so much. I tried tapering a pair to get a skinny-jean look but was still unhappy because of course everything was so low-rise then. Now I probably have 10 pairs of jeans. Of course, I wear them much more often anyway because I don't work in a stuffy office anymore. But still, I started accumulating them even before I left that job just because I was so happy there were new (skinny and straight-leg) styles.

Hi Kate-I think skinnies and widelegged are the most versatile styles at the moment, so great choices my dear!!

Hi Wendy-Yes, thankfully all styles seem to be available nowadays and are generally in trend-bootleg is a style I had to wear years ago and just not really overkeen on now. I also like straight and skinnies the best.

I have too many pairs of jeans also but now that summer's over its all I ever wear! Its rainy and slushy bordering on snow today so I'm especially grateful for my rubber rain boots! I loved them before the trend started and plan to wear them for the rest of my life - trends be damned!

I have a pair of jeans the same color as yours. My roomy calls them my "painting pants" but I don't pay attention to her. You need to mix up washes when wearing jeans daily ;)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi anny-yes, I adore jeans too and I agree, different washes are essential when you are a jeans addict!!

I keep hearing that skinny jeans are off trend, but it doesn't bother me because I can't imagine myself in any other style. I keep trying to find some wide leg but none of them seem to look right. Some day i'll have to move on from skinnies but I don't know what to. Jeans are a difficult thing i find!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi pamela-thats where thrifting comes in!! I source all my different styles from the charity shops, so then they don't end up being an expensive disaster. its a good way to tap into different styles too! I think all styles are 'in' for the moment, its great to work skinnies one day and widelegged the next!

My boot-cut Tristan Webbers! Found them on eBay, for next to nothing - yippee!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi miss thrifty-well done my dear, I love an ebay bargain too!!

Skye said...

Jeans are a kind of necessary evil in my wardrobe, what I wear when it's cold and I have housework to do!

S of Modern-Guilt said...

You look totally gorgeous in this pair!
I'm a fan of the trend jean depending...for example, I'm LOVING the return of high-waisted wide-legs right now :)

Ladies Who Lunch said...

wow 15.. I don't even have ONE pair!! i had some 7 for all mankind jeans about 5 years ago...

I think black skinnies will always be my favourite type of jean - so easy to wear!

AsianCajuns said...

What an amazing find! Those jeans look fantastic on you. I love how you paired them with biker boots!

My favorite jeans are a pair that I bought at TopShop a few years ago when I was living in Scotland. I still wear them all the time because they're the most flattering cut.

Nay'Chelle said...

My favorite jeans are a sentimental favorite. The're straigt leg, have random holes in the knee and paint splatters- none of which were there when
i bought htem. I'm not sure if they're "on trend" but I love them

Great jacket.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Skye-I do think they are one of the most easiest things to put on and can be dressed up or down.

Hi S-yes, I agree, this is a fabulous style!!

Hi ladies who lunch-haha, I couldn't be without jeans-I rarely wear skirts or trousers, its jeans or dresses for me!

Hi nic-I love black skinnies, so smart and chic looking too!

Hi asian cajuns-thanks for your lovely comment. It's great when you get a pair that last for years and are still so loved!

Hi nay'chelle-they sound great! thanks for your lovely comment too!

I have a pair of Joe's Jeans dark skinnies that I bought in LA that I really like, although I'm not sure I have the right body for them--short and voluptous! :) I also have two pairs of Tommy Hilfiger jeans, with regular waists (hallelujah) and a fairly straight leg. I also love anything by the Jeanstar brand--so flattering!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Bonnie-thanks for stopping by, sounds like you have a great collection!
