We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it’s official, skinny jeans are OUT. Back in 2014 they were at their peak, and it was estimated that 76 per cent of all jeans bought that year were skinny styles, but tastes have changed a lot since then! This year, there are 3 key styles ruling the high street - read on to find out the who, what and where...

‘Mom’ jeans were born in the 1990s, where high-waisted straight leg jeans were typically worn by, well, American moms! They might look odd on the hanger, but believe us, when you get them on they’re surprisingly flattering! These jeans look good with both trainers, heels and boots, so make a great investment for autumn’s awkward weather.

One of the trickier new cuts to pull off, cropped kick-flare jeans sit on the hips, are fitted through the thigh and flare out at the knee, cropping suddenly at the ankle. But don’t fear the crop! Styled with a casual T-shirt and stacked boots, they’ll bring a fashion-forward edge to your look without trying too hard. And great news, this cut looks particularly fab on petite ladies!

Flares are back! But really, did they ever go away? They’re one of the most flattering cuts of denim and fans of the flare are fiercely loyal. Traditionally, flares sit on the hip, are fitted through the thigh and flare out at the knee down to the shoes. If you’re after leg lengtheners, these are a must-own; pair with heels and lightly tailored blazer for #ladyboss style.
