You might have seen me asking for any of your #denimSOS moments on Twitter, and I probably owe you an explanation as to why; I'm working with M&S in order to help find out what problems we suffer from when buying jeans - I'm talking baggy ankles, faded black washes and a disproportionate waist to bum ratio and I'm here delivering my tips on the perfect pair of black skinnies!
  • I always look for a solid black colour when shopping for jeans, anything with hints of grey or 'acid wash' will fade super quickly. I often throw a home black dye in the washing machine once every two months or so with my most-worn pairs in order to refresh them a bit too.
  • Always make sure you get the right leg length. Years working in retail tell me that people have no idea how long their legs are, and further to this, lots of you responded on Twitter saying you can never find any short/long enough so it's definitely worth shopping around and trying on different lengths when buying a pair.
  • Finally, if they're high rise, make sure they fit snuggly around your waist (even a little small at first... hear me out) as any jeans with elastane in with give with wear, yep, baggy knees and loose around the top. Not a great look, combat this by buying a pair that are well fitting in the first place. Even if they're a comfortably loose to begin with, they'll be huge within a week of wear, so size down if you can get away with it! 
My fit of choice would always be a skinny jean with a high rise. Although I like a girlfriend fit on occasion, skinnies just don't date and are the perfect pair for every day wear. Black skinny jeans are honestly the most versatile thing I own, don't you agree?
