High street jeans are better than they’ve ever been at the moment, for a combination of their inexpensive price points and genuinely good quality. Sure, the Great British high street may get some stick (especially if it’s called Oxford Street and it’s bursting with shoppers all day), but it provides the goods when it comes to wardrobe staples. Time after time after time.
Rivalling the high-end denim labels we know and love (think: Re/Done, Khaite and GRLFRND), high street jeans from brands such as Topshop, ASOS, H&M and Warehouse take the cake. Shopping for jeans is everyone’s least favourite task, so knowing you’re going to get a bargain at the end of it can certainly ease the pain.
From mom jeans to boyfriend jeans, straight leg jeans and high-waisted jeans, the high street caters to a wide variety of preferences, body shapes and heights (for petite jeans and tall jeans, head this way). Something that some designer labels are yet to catch up with.
We appreciate that finding the best jeans for you is a seriously daunting task, and one that can have disastrous consequences (read: a strop in the changing room) if there’s so much as a smidge of sizing discrepancy. But the good thing about shopping for jeans on the high street is that most of the time it can be done online, from the comfort of your own sofa.
You can take your time getting your measurements right, apply discount codes before checkout, and not get elbowed in the ribs by another shopper when browsing. In fact, to avoid any meltdowns whatsoever, we’ve done all the hard work for you and rounded up the very best pairs of high street jeans to set your sights on right now. You’re welcome.
First up on our list of recommendations has to be ASOS. With a plus sized, tall, petite and maternity section, you’re sure to find the perfect jeans for you on site. Their Farleigh jeans have taken the fashion crowd by storm courtesy of their lower-than-£30 price point and spot-on fit.
Warehouse‘s 80s Turn Up Hem Straight Leg jeans are the perfect pair to spotlight box-fresh sneakers or a some heels, while these high waisted mom jeans from River Island could easily be mistaken for a pair of Levi’s. As for COTTON:ON’s high-waisted, baggy jeans? Well, we’re living in them 24/7.
