    Denim trends come and go but your skinny jeans will always be a staple in your wardrobe which is precisely why we’ve rounded up the best pairs for you right here.

    Coming in low, mid and high rise, cropped to extra long, there’s a plethora of styles for every shape.

    And now thanks to the latest technology, everything from new, innovative fabrics to specially engineered silhouettes, there’s a plethora of denim out there that promises to slim, smooth, tighten, and lift parts of your body you didn’t even realise needed attention.

    But trawling the rails for the right pair of jeans can be terribly tedious, which is why we’ve rounded up the best styles for every shape and budget.

    If you’re long in the torso with short legs, you need a high waist to give you more leg. If you have a short body with a larger bust, amid-rise waist is going to be the perfect style for you. We suggest you try on as many brands as possible, the cut can vary widely from one designer to the other.

    Another top tip is to wear your skinnies extra long with a pair of killer heels to elongate your legs. New technology in many denim brands, like Cheap Monday and even Warehouse, now have plenty of stretch so jeans will keep their shape as well as colour for longer.

    Whether you’re looking for a classic black pair which can be worn from the office to the weekend, or thinking about really refreshing your wardrobe for the new season by investing in a pair of white, striped or even pink denim, this edit has every style desire covered.
