A great pair of jeans is a must for any woman’s wardrobe, whether you prefer a skinny or a flare, black or stonewashed denim, studded or plain. But finding the perfect fit can be more difficult than you think! Too many jeans are designed without real women in mind, so we were really excited here at Littlewoods when we received our new batch of Salsa Jeans.
Salsa Jeans are a popular Portuguese fashion brand whose jeans are renowned for their stylish look and fantastic fit, not to mention the incredible textile technology used in each pair of jeans to create a perfect shape. There’s a style to suit all tastes, with many of the pairs including inbuilt shaping to help minimise lumps and bumps – or support your curves!
One of the big trends for this AW was androgyny and there’s no better way to channel this with some slim jeans, killer heels and a classic white shirt. The Salsa Jeans Sculpture Straight Leg Jeans are perfect for an androgynous look and their black denim makes them ideal to wear with a glittery top come party season. The innovative shaping around the waist helps to create a smooth form without that ‘muffin top’ look, while the higher side panels creating a defined curve from your hip to your waist. Paired with a shirt and chunky jewellery, or a longer, tunic-style top for a more feminine look, these jeans look good and will make you feel great too.
For a more classic, Americana look, try out the Salsa Jeans Secret Bootcut Jeans in faded blue denim. With a higher waist than the Straight Leg Jeans, this style is ideal for less curvy girls, as the bootcut will help create the illusion of curves while the higher fit will draw attention to your waist. These jeans look great with a pair of smart ballerina pumps or platforms; chunky wooden heels gives a nod to the continuing seventies trend without being overpowering. These jeans also come in a dark blue-black denim with the same details that make this brand that little bit different: the double button fly fastening, deep scoop front pockets, and back pockets that are placed so as to make the most of your curves.
Flares and wide trousers have been huge news this summer, and the Salsa Jeans Salsa Flow Slim Flare Jeans tap into that trend for AW, with a darker, more sophisticated edge. Although not for everyone, strong flare shapes like this look great on taller women, or if you’re shorter make sure you wear some strong heels to keep the look streamlined. Unlike the other pairs we’ve featured, these jeans are really low cut for a sexy, modern style – team them up with a simple white tshirt for a look that never goes out of fashion.
