Turn up Tuesday! Jean edition.









Boyfriend, Blue, Ripped, Skinny, Fitted, and Flared… the list of these magical jeans seems endless and timeless and so easily turned up. If you are a shorty like myself this is a very handy trick that thankfully has been back in Vogue for a couple of seasons now, to turn up the bottom of your jeans is A-okay now and no longer a ‘geeky’ ‘out of style’ move to attempt.

Or so they tell me.
 

Either way it’s wonderful because as a short stack I’m forever in the petite section of clothing stores and even then all jeans end up being just that little bit too long for me if I want to wear flats, it’s a nightmare! So this little trick is so welcomed in the house of EIC, and it’s fantastic that the already pre-turned jean are made ready-to-wear in most high street shops now, ranging from +New Look to @H&M to +Topshop and beyond. They look amazing with heels or wedges (or wedge trainers if you feel so inclined) and of course my cherished and comfy flats. 


So what are the best of the best?

New Look are good at the turn, those their range a little more on the bigger turn up than say Topshop’s LEIGH jean – it sits pre-turned and tiny at the ankle. But if you want them higher up, it’s an easy fix if they aren’t the super skinny type of material – you know the kind that feels like a second skin and makes you feel every single calorie you’ll intake that day?

Yeah, that kind.

I do love them though, and my favourite would have to be the LEIGH from Topshop. As a very recent Topshop jean convert I can say that. Because for years it was a shop I only spent money in if it was on much needed accessories (or their amazing makeup line!) but very rarely did I gravitate toward their casual clothing lines, I don’t know why, but the homeless hipster vibe they give off isn’t really my thing over all. 

BUT their jeans are just amazeballs, with the LEIGH winning out in my mind (or my legs, if you prefer) and I live in my various pairs.

Turn up Tuesday


Beware of vanity sizing though, TS is rampant with it and whatever size you are in one pair of jean may not be what you are in another – trust me! 

What are your favourite jeans on the scene and why?!
