A Love Letter To… Marks & Spencer’s £25 Jeans

LOOK's Sarah-Rose Harrison has finally found her ultimate pair of jeans and at under £30 she just had to share them with you...

So despite being, a very average, 5 foot 6′ finding a pair of jeans that I don’t need to chop the hems off before wearing is almost impossible. I’ve got a longer upper body than lower and so shopping for jeans is never really fun, and I try on options already thinking of how I’ll need to shorten them.

Whilst I’m now a dab-hand at turn-up’s and DIY-ing a raw hem it’s left me dreaming of the perfect pair of jeans that I could wear as they were made to be worn, original hem and all. So when I stumbled across this dreamy mid-rise cropped straight-leg style from (my beloved) Marks & Spencer I was (unsurprisingly) thrilled. At just £25 it’s hard not to pick up a pair in every shade, and M&S have options Light Grey, Indigo and Bleached – covering you for every possible occasion!

I opted for the summery bleached style, for now, but will absolutely be purchasing the other two wash options when pay-day comes around…

The sunny day I'd been saving this dreamy bag for finally came around ☀️☀️☀️

Buying jeans and finding the right pair is often so much harder than it needs to be as you have to think about and consider so many factors, such as: fit, shape, wash, proportions, fastenings, hems and detailing. Which is why this style is such a treat to try-on and buy as they’re so straightforward and classic. Ankle skimming jeans are so great for a shorter leg, helping to get the proportions right, and whilst I love how slimming the straight-leg fit is by having a, higher than usual, mid-rise they actually sit quite naturally at my waistline giving a more relaxed almost mom-jean styled look without the worry of a camel toe.

To me, jeans are such a personal buy. They’re so much more than just a trend lead piece, I want a pair that make me feel good (and comfortable) whether I’m wearing them whilst cleaning my flat or, out for dinner and this lovely pair from trusty M&S tick all the boxes.
