Finding the perfect pair of jeans with Marks & Spencer

Finding the perfect pair of jeans with Marks & Spencer


I’ve always felt like I was on a life-long mission to find the perfect pair of jeans that I love and can enjoy every time I wear. Jeans are one of the staples of any wardrobe, and I have been on a low key hunt for the perfect pair. There are so many articles about finding the “perfect jeans” on google, recommending certain brands and fit, but it honestly isn’t that easy.

Finding jeans online, especially when you’re super petite, can be real hit or miss. These Mid Rise Cropped Super Skinny Leg Jeans are a hit! I love a Mid Rise jean that sits on my waist right at my belly button. A great pair of leg jeans hugs my body in a really flattering way that even with my proportions makes my petite legs look longer, and defines my waist for a slimmer silhouette. A UK size 6 regular” is perfect for me; anything higher and I’m in dangerous torso-disappearing territory. I was pretty much shocked that these jeans fit me perfectly. I love that they hold their shape throughout the whole day of wear unlike other pairs I own that only fit snugly for the first few hours, and then stretch out. These jeans are very lightweight and stretchy. The material is great for summer, plus they have 4 pockets. They fit like a glove! They are some of the most flattering cropped jeans I have ever owned. Nothing better than Marks & Spencer’s… you just have to find the right fit!

The fundamental question I ask myself before I buy any product is, “Does this give me joy.” I actually learned of this from Krist Yu’s you tube videos, and it’s really helpful to know that each product I am buying is worth my money.

Honestly, I was double minded on getting these Mid Rise Super Skinny Leg Jeans from Marks & Spencer. I was afraid that they weren’t going to fit me well, or they’re way too long for me. But I knew I had to get them. I never had jeans that fit me so well, especially the length, because jeans in America are always so long that I had to fold them once or twice. It’s important that the skinny jeans are not super tight on your legs (I like my skinnies with a good dose of stretch). I know that I will not be able to wear jeans like this as frequently once I get older, so that pushed me to get them. I fold these jeans too, but mostly for looks. They actually fit my legs just right. 

I am very pleased with these jeans! They look cute with sneakers, sandals or even high heels. They are flattering, nice quality, and have the perfect level of denim. I highly recommend these jeans from Marks & Spencer to anyone of any shape. SO comfy and cute. Take a chance on these! The shipping was SUPER fast (within 4 days), well packaged, without waste. I hope this is helpful for some of you!  Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

    Such a gorgeous queen you are as always. Totally love these two outfits, the first outfit with that trenchcoat and jeans is so elegant and stunning, especially the fitting of the jeans is amazing. I always want to get a great pair of ankle grazer jeans but never find the perfect one since I’m very petite. Do you mind if I ask you what is your height?? The second outfit is another perfection, the blue stripe and red bag is just a perfect match.

    It is hard sometimes being short and finding great jeans, Len!! And I’ve only tried Marks & Spencer for shoes before—-I may have to venture out in the jean territory now with them!!
    Because these are amazing on you!

    Los dos look son increibles! Pero me quedo con el 2º!! Tu pelo es precioso!

    I always find it so hard to find great jeans, but I love both these pairs and how you styled them!
    I really love the ankle strap court shoes!

    I agree, Len! Finding the right fit in jeans for a petite person is difficult. You’re right, they tend to be too long and I seem to always be getting them hemmed to fit properly. On the other hand, these jeans look fabulous on you. They definitely fit like a glove! 🙂 I love your two looks! Hope you’re staying safe in TX!

    Both pairs of jeans look gorgeous and so flattering on you. I love how lean and long it makes your legs look. That is what I always look for in a good pair of skinny jeans. I have had luck with jeans at American Apparel and H&M. Will give Marks and Spencer a try. I want to hang out with you so I can take a peek at your bag closet. Your bag game is off the charts ?

    I’ve never actually thought to look at M&S for jeans, because I have found their sizing to be a bit hit and miss but these look great on you! I will definitely look in M&S next time I am in the market for new jeans x
