An ode to Topshop Jamie jeans…

Something a little different on the blog today… fashion wise! I do love doing fashion posts but as much as I’d like to do them more often, life usually gets in the way. But I didn’t want that to stop me from talking about the best denim-related discovery I’ve made in years. This, my friends – is a little ode to Topshop Jamie jeans…


Obviously I’m not the first person to discover these, they’re from basically the biggest highstreet store in the UK. But as a previous Bazter devotee, I never thought you could tear me away. But on the suggestion of a friend, I looked at these and the other well-known Leigh style. I’m sure the Leigh ones are great, but they’re just too thin – you can’t *really* call them jeans then they’re not even proper denim.

But these, these I think are awesome. The denim is thick, but flexible – and they don’t loose their stretch at all over the day as you wear them. No saggy bums to be seen here!

The next thing I love is the higher waist – I’m never normally a fan of high waisted, but these are great. They make you feel so sucked in, so no muffin top on show – no feeling of wobbly bits.

Overall, these are the best jeans I’ve found and I love them. I tend to buy them a length longer than usual so they aren’t ankle grazer, but more sit at the right level. I’ve picked up three pairs (blue, grey-blue and black) since I bought my first in January. My one request to Topshop…I really would love it if they did a dark grey pair!

    Have you tried the Next high waisted jeans? I think they call them Sexy Skinny or Sexy Bootcut. They have that sucking-in thing, I love them SO MUCH.

    I love jamie jeans! I’ve worn one pair to absolute death, holes in the bum, knees, thighs (they are over 5 years old and I won’t throw them away) another dark blue pair on their way out and 3 more chilling in my wardrobe in ombre, caramel and faded denim. I love that they fit my skinny legs so well, leigh are just too baggy!! I NEED a black pair asap! the £40 makes me weep everytime so I wait till topshop do their 20% off for students 😉
