A great stretch and silky feel makes this jean a best seller for women who love comfort in their jeans. 11 inches high the Margot is the highest rise Paige offers, again great for curves.

Body shape: Hourglass, pear, apple and long & leggy.

#8: 23110 Photo Ready Maria High Rise Super Skinny in Vanity $189 by J Brand. The Photo Ready is a great one for holding it’s shape from the get go. The Maria has a 9.75-inch Rise with a 30 inch leg length. Fabric Content is 92.5% Cotton, 5% Polyester, 2.5% Elastane and available in size 23 to 32. The Photo Ready fabric was created with the selfie in mind as these jeans look like they have been airbrushed on the leg, hence the name! Body shape: Hourglass, pear, apple and long & leggy.

Mid Rise:

#2: Betty mid-rise bootcut jeans by J Brand $190. This style is cut from J Brands Photo Ready fabric, so you’re getting all the hold and a clean style in a boot cut. A good jean for work or school. This mid-rise sits at 8 3/4 inches depending on the size, 33 inch leg length and available in size 23 to 32. Body shape: Hourglass, pear, apple and long & leggy.

#3: 811 Photo Ready Mid-Rise Skinny in Vanity by J Brand $185. The 811 was one of the first styles J Brand launched. The reason it’s called “811” is that it has an 8 inch rise and an 11 inch leg opening, simple! It’s a perfect classic style skinny that doesn’t cling to the calf. Again made in the Photo Ready fabric 92.5% Cotton, 5% Polyester, 2.5% Elastane. Leg length 29 inches and available in size 23 to 32. A winning classic style!                 Body shape: Petite and apple.

#4: Skin 5 Pocket mid-rise skinny jeans by Acne Studios $235. This one is a cropped length of 26 inches but is available in a 30, 32 & 34 leg length. This style may feel tight when trying but it will stretch half a size so keep this in mind when purchasing. I find this style good for women with a slight curve. Available in size 23 to 32. Body shape: Hourglass, petite and apple.

#6: Le Skinny de Jeanne Mid-Rise Jean by Frame $185. Frame is really popular with petite women as they work to a 29 inch leg length. Fabric has a slight stretch with 91.5% cotton, 6% polyester, 2.5% Lycra and an 8 inch mid-rise sitting on your hips. Minimal styling at it’s best. Body shape: Petite and apple.

Your Back To School Uniform:

Natalie Massnet founder of Net-a-porter is a true fan of the monochrome uniform, she feels most comfortable in black jeans ( she loves Frame), white shirt, a pair of high heels, a good jacket and a great bag!  Throw in an accent colour or an animal print to add a touch of chic.

    • Hi Lindy, thanks for your comment. They’re expensive for a good reason, the fit is very good and you’ll have these jeans for ages! Try and get them in the sale or you’ll find them in a designer discount store such as TK Max.
