My biggest takeaway is this: it’s much easier to integrate these shades into my wardrobe than previously thought. No matter the hue, they seemed to fall into two styling categories: one, back to basics, literally. For this, call upon that capsule wardrobe you’ve been building, and let your neutral shades of white, black and navy do the hard work. The other category is all about tonal dressing. Mixing similar hues is an easy way to style more ‘daring’ jeans colours, and also feels really considered.
To make this try-on even more useful, you should know I’m 5’2″ and take a 28/29 waist in jeans. Some of these jeans came up too long on me, but don’t let a great pair go simply because of this. Many styles come in petite, or you can turn to your local dry cleaners who can take a few inches off in no time.
