That’s why we were all ears when we heard about a pair of jeans receiving rave reviews on Instagram and even more interested when we discovered they cost just £29.50 on the great British high street.
As any seasoned shopper will attest, finding the perfect pair of jeans is no mean feat.
Not only do they need to be flattering, they also need to keep their shape, stand the test of time and absolutely not fade in the wash.
The jeans in question? M&S’ Carrie Super Soft Bling Skinny Jeans, which are available in grey and khaki.
According to the website’s product description, the jeans are crafted with comfort and style in mind and will ‘quickly become your new go-to pair’.
They’re made from a blend of sustainably sourced cotton yarns, Tencel and powerful stretch, which gives them extra kudos in our books, and are cut for a skinny fit that flatters from top-to-toe. Shoppers can also choose from a range of authentic and clean washes.
M&S posted a snap of @marksandspencer_charlotte donning the design on its Instagram channel with the caption: “Have you discovered our super-soft Carrie jeans yet? After catching @marksandspencer_charlotte in the sporty (and slimming) side-stripe version, they’ve rocketed straight to the top of our wish list.”
