Outfit: Boden waxed jeans, Whistles jumper, La Redoute jacket, Oushka bag, Mango shoes
Subsequent to deciding that there was no way that I was ever going to wear my Primark coated skinnies again, I needed to find an alternative. I like coated jeans as a change from blue denim and being black, the coating adds that little bit of texture which stops them from being too “flat”.
Yesterday the super skinny waxed jeans that I ordered from Boden arrived and today I tried them out. I’ve concluded that wrinkles in coated jeans are unavoidable but I’ve also concluded that there are more important things in life to worry about! So, moving to the jeans themselves, they are generous in the leg length and the rise on them is also good which means that they don’t fall down (that’s the Primark problem solved then!) I like the addition of the ankle zips and zipped pockets on my Primark ones but you know, sometimes you have to sacrifice a bit of zippage for comfort.
The reviews about this style of jean on the Boden site are really good and I have to say, so far so good. Of course the problem with jeans is that they don’t always reveal their true selves until after you’ve spent a bit of time with them (a bit like boyfriends really – from recollection at least) by which time they can’t be popped back on the shelf unless they are faulty (unlike boyfriends, which can quite easily be popped back on the shelf from which they’ve fallen).
I can’t vouch for the other finishes in this style but for anyone who struggles with getting skinny jeans to fit, I would definitely consider giving them a go.
