You know how I keep saying I only want to wear jeans and stripy tops at the moment? Well I am pushing it just a little step further by participating in Dorothy Perkins’ Denim Challenge this week. Basically, each day I will have to wear a different shape of jeans and document my experience here – not rocket science.
The fun thing is that I am not the only one participating, there are in fact 5 of us, all of different shapes and sizes. To avoid spoiling the surprise, I am going to let you go and discover my 5 denim buddies on Style HQ, the DP blog where our efforts will be chronicled each day.
Day 1 is for Super Skinny jeans, which is a shape I wear all the time anyway, so that isn’t massively challenging – especially as I live in skinny jeans at the moment. The only strange thing was to wear a different brand. I normally always buy my skinny jeans from Urban Outfitters’ own range as the fit is the best suited to my body shape and they are a little higher rise on the waist than most other high-street skinnies.
For the DP jeans, I found that the trick to get the same higher rise result was to get them in a size bigger. I tried them on in a 12 and they were fine, but a little too low on the waist for my liking. The 14 goes higher but the jeans are stretchy enough so they are not baggy on the legs even a size up.
