The search for the perfect pair of jeans is a journey that I seem to have been on forever. I need length in the leg, but also love a high waistband to try to give me a little bit of tummy control. I always used to wear bootcut, thinking these were more flattering for the curvy figure, but then discovered the skinnies could also be really good for a curvy figure. But this season has been all about 70s flared denim, something I didn’t think I could pull off…until now.
Fashion World asked if I would be interested in reviewing a pair of jeans from their new range, and I decided to jump in with both feet and opt for the Simply Be Denim Phoebe Kick Flare Super Soft Jeans. I liked the idea that the jeans had a high waist and were described as super soft – not stiff and unforgiving as some denim can be. I also liked the fact the leg came in different lengths, and that the jeans came in a classic indigo – my favourite shade when it comes to denim, whatever the season.
It is hard to put into words how much I love these jeans – they are AMAZING. They are the perfect fit, the perfect cut and the perfect colour. The waistband is high to keep my tummy in place, but is also comfortable – it doesn’t cut into my stomach. The length is 29inches which means they fit perfectly even when wearing a lower heel, and the flare is a cool 70s shape without being too wide , they look cool but not comic. They are easy to wear daily with either a simple t-shirt, or to dress up for a boho look with a crochet or cheesecloth top. I think they would also look great with a pussybow blouse in teal or tan for a 1970s inspired evening look.
How I styled it.
1. Crochet top picked up in Menorca, Swedish Hasbeens and a pony tail. Michael Kors sunglasses (to cover up an eye infection.)
2. Total 70s – Vintage top picked up from Vintage at the Manor (post here), Clarks tan sandals.
And what about if you avoid 70s styling – do they still work? Absolutely!
Mango top, Evans jacket (c/o House of Fraser – review here), Peacocks necklace.
The Phoebe jeans are an absolute keeper, so much so that I’m going to get another pair in black for my Autumn wardrobe. For just £28, these are a stylish, totally wearable pair of jeans that will work in so many outfits and so many occasions.
