Versatility. A word that is a pre-requisite of mine when purchasing an item. Will it go with more than one other item in my wardrobe? Is it practical? Is is comfortable? These are all questions I ask myself when trying on items pre-purchase.

Lucky for us, we can now narrow our searches thanks to Matalan. The team there have created the ‘Selvedge’ – a style of denim jeans that are available in slim fit and straight fit. When the brand reached out to me about working together I was excited, and in all honesty, slightly nervous, to try a different fit of jeans to what I normally wear. As you’ll know from previous style posts and anyone who knows me will validate that I am a devout wearer of skinny jeans.

I opted for the slim fit as they are more tailored to the body but still look relaxed. When I put them on I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they are. They didn’t look oversized and allowed for plenty of activity as you can see (walking, handstands, taking selfies, etc). The denim feels tough and gives you reassurance that they aren’t going to tear after limited amount of use.

When styling them up I opted for a variation in t-shirts to show the colours and patterns the jeans go with and opted for the sweatshirt to show they can be worn casually or with the jumper to show they can be worn for a dressierĀ setting.

What’re your favourite things about your jeans? Please don’t hesitate to let me know via comments, e-mail or social media!

P.S. – Thank you to Matalan for reaching out to me and making this post possible!
