No wardrobe is complete without that loyal pair of denim jeans. They’ve been there for you through thick and thin, thin and fat, through the all-night library sessions, and the Christmas day turkey overloads: only that one pair of special jeans magically hides all those guilty lumps and bumps and gives a smooth finish. It’s the only fashion staple which looks amazing regardless of how many pounds you’ve put on over summer or how many vodkas you had the night before. Who needs diamonds when you’ve got that great pair of killer jeans?
One of our favourite jeans brands at the moment is Current/Elliott and this distressed pair get top marks from us in the style stakes. The skinny jean has long been our partner in crime, (ever since our mums stopped dressing us,) as it successfully elongates our legs and defines our booties. Distressed denim has had a huge renaissance, and this covetable pair are no exception with designers focusing more on the unruly side to fashion and abandoning the prim and proper look. Team your distressed jeans with a quirky slogan t-shirt and boots for student style kudos or glam them up with heels and a statement top for a refined but easy edge. Alternatively, if you’re creative and a confident “DIY-er” grab a pair of scissors and go crazy on an old pair of skinnies. If, like us, your student pennies don’t stretch far enough to afford the £235 Current/Elliott price tag, head down to Topshop or H&M, our high street jeans meccas providing us with every style from blue wash to boyfriend.
