Our Modern Not Mutton series is all about tackling real women’s fashion dilemmas and we think finding the perfect pair of jeans might just be at the top of the list. No wonder we find shopping for jeans tricky, there’s so much to consider– length, style, comfort and colour to name a few. We’ve spent countless hours in changing rooms trying on endless pairs of jeans and there’s nothing worse than settling for a pair that ‘sort of’ fit. There’s a perfect style for every shape, and the high street’s offerings have never been better!

Our Lifestyle Editor, Kath Brown, and Fashion Editor, Paula Moore, will be using their years of experience of styling real women to bring you the best and latest high street trends you need to know about in our Modern Not Mutton series. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, we want to make sure we’re getting it right.

It’s time to find that ultimate pair of jeans you feel instantly confident in as soon as you put them on. Watch our video above to see Kath and Paula take us through the styles that work for their shapes. Ever tried cutting your own hem? You might want to give it a go after watching!
