If you know me, then you’ll know that I’ve been rocking Topshop’s Joni jeans since way back in 2013. They’ve been my go-to jeans to put my long legs into and they’ve served my bottom half well. I love how comfy they were, how they made my figure look, and how they went with almost every outfit that I put together; an all round good egg of the jean world. However, since my style has evolved and changed over the years, I decided that I wanted to change up my jean style a tad too. Change is good, right? So I did a bit of research on the Topshop website, scouring through their extensive jean range and ended up popping a pair of classic Jamie Jeans into my basket.
I’m not going to lie, I was a bit nervous when I received them in the post. Like many of us, jeans are a huge deal to me and swapping to a completely new style after so many years had my heart racing with anxiety.
But BOY! am I glad I did switch them up. I did a little happy dance in front of my mirror when I saw how well they fit; It was love at first fit. Ever since then, I’ve been wondering how i’d gone so long without trying this style before. For those of you, like me, who have been living under a rock and haven’t tried this style before, I instruct you to do so. Compared to my beloved Joni jeans, here’s why I fell so deeply in love with the Jamie jeans:
I love a good high-waisted jean. Joni jeans are super high-waisted, so when shopping for my next jean style, it was a feature that I looked for. Luckily, Jamie jeans come through on that front. For me, Jamie jeans are just as high-wasited as my beloved Joni jeans, so they won me over on this one.
If you are like me, your somebody with a bit of curve on their bottom half. That is why it is so hard to find jeans that cater towards our thick thighs and round bum. However the tailored, unique fit of Jamie jeans really helps to accentuate the hips, bum, and thighs region while comfortably pulling in the stomach area. Its almost too good to be true.
Joni jeans are known for being much like jeggings. They’re softer and much more stretchy than regular jeans. The material of Jamie jeans is just as stretchy but they feel more ‘jean like’. The material is a lot thicker and more hard-wearing than Joni jeans suggesting to me that they may last a bit longer.
As you can tell, I’ve fallen head over heels for this style of jean. What style of jeans are your favourite? Let me know!
