This post is sponsored by Abercrombie & Fitch who are fast becoming a real go-to place for excellent denim. They have a HUGE choice of styles, colours and sizes: a virtual smorgasbord of denim to choose from. They also have many of their styles in four different leg lengths and a whole ‘curve’ selection too.
For this bank holiday weekend (25–28 August) there is 25% off all jeans and 15% off pretty much everything else for MYAF members, you can join here, it’s free. Plus my code AFHISCOX will get you an EXTRA 15% on top of that! I’ve picked out four jeans styles to show you. I took the ‘regular’ length in all of these, I’m 5’7 and a size 10/12.
ULTRA HIGH WAIST 90s STRAIGHT LEG JEANS
If you’re looking for a classic jean style that won’t date, these 90s straight legs are for you. Don’t be afraid of the term ‘ultra high rise’: it just means they’ll fit on your true waist. Personally, I find this style more flattering than the lower rise, and they act a bit like support pants and hold you in around the tummy. No chance of a muffin top here. These are full length, but I like a turn up. I took these in a 28 (which is a UK 10).

HIGH RISE 90s RELAXED JEANS
These high rise 90s relaxed fit jean sit somewhere in between the classic straight and the baggy style. I went with the 29 in these, but actually I think 28 would also have worked fine. By the way, the body I’m wearing in these pics is past-season Abercrombie. I think they may have a few left, and there is also a similar one here from the new season.

ULTRA HIGH RISE STRETCH FLARED JEANS
Now for something completely different: the ultra high rise stretch flared jeans. I was never a flares fan until quite recently, when I actually discovered just how flattering they can be on the legs. These have a good amount of stretch so are very comfortable to wear. Because of that stretch I went for a 28. I prefer flat shoes, but if I was planning on wearing these with heels I would have ordered them in the longer length so that the hems hit the floor.

MID RISE BAGGY JEANS
If you prefer your jeans on the looser, more casual side, and without a hugely high waistband, then this baggier style might be more on your wavelength. They aren’t THAT baggy – we aren’t in the realms of the 90s’ rave-style dragging hems that get waterlogged – just a good, loose fit. I went with a 29 (12) here as I knew the denim would be more rigid and the waist lower.
