Jeans are generally considered to be the cornerstone of any sensible person’s wardrobe. I’ve always had a problem with jeans because I don’t think they flatter my body. I inherited many wonderful things from my beloved Dad, however his muscular, stumpy legs are an unwelcome genetic legacy. The perennial presence of skinny jeans I’ve felt has meant I’ve felt ostracised from the world of denim – drain pipes don’t look good wrapped around muscular quadriceps. However, this season denim has been re-interpreted into many different formats. I’m particularly enamoured with the denim pinafore dress from Whistles.
