JEANS WITH A TWIST
I don’t know about you, but my jeans have worked extremely hard for the past two years – which turned out to be a little more casual than expected.
Functional, fashionable, practical, jeans are the beating heart of every wardrobe and we are used to being reinvented; we just said goodbye to skinny jeans and hello to straight or wide leg styles. Lowslung slouch has replaced my favorite high waist.

BYE BYE BLUES
And now it’s time to replace classic blue with bolder options. Yes, it’s the perfect opportunity to overhaul your denim.
Jeans, jumpsuits or jackets, everything has been updated with neons, pastels and primary colors. There are no rules – just make sure they are comfortable.
The pair I’m wearing here is in a washed coral color with a high, relaxed fit. They come from Me+Em and are an instant spring injection. Mango has a great pair of wide-leg, mid-rise waist in a vibrant green, but this season, hot pink is the color to be seen in.
Pangaia has a few in flamingo, striking but surprisingly easy to wear. An expensive but sustainable option: the label uses organic cotton, grown without pesticides or extra watering.
A LOT OF FITS
Less ‘look at me’ are John Lewis’ cropped yellow design. You can find beautiful colors in all styles: boyfriend, flared and even those good old skinnys, if you can’t bear to let them go.
It’s time to let your jeans do the talking!
