When it comes to jeans, Paige Adams-Geller, founder of her eponymous premium denim and lifestyle brand, is something of an oracle. She understands what women want and need in their wardrobes. While her collection is often trend-led, the dedication to creating denim that is wearable from day to night is evident—these are pieces that you'll be happy wearing in the office but also on a date night (all you'll need to do is change your shoes).
Of course, when I got the opportunity to have a chat with Paige about her new collection, I had to ask her about the jeans we should all have in our wardrobes right now. The answer she gave me wasn't wholly surprising, but it was good to know that this style is one that flatters everyone—and it's more on-trend than your day-to-day skinnies.
If you need to buy something this season that you don't have in your wardrobe yet, get a pair of high-rise straight-leg jeans.
When I spoke to Paige about the number one pair of jeans every woman should have in her wardrobe right now, without missing a beat she said that it's "definitely still all about high-rise straight leg. I think you can embrace it any way you want." What she means by that is a well-cut pair will suit every shape (they make butts look incredible by creating a more hourglass silhouette, nipping in higher at the waist), and you'll find them in various washes (light colours nail the mom-jean or '90s supermodel look while darker finishes will always slim more). It also comes in a variety of price points with high-end brands and the high street both stocking plenty.
They've been popular for a few seasons now, so if you're lacking this style in your wardrobe and ready to move on from skinnies, keep scrolling for our pick of the best around right now.
Wear with sneakers or boots, as recommended by Paige herself.
The buttons on these are such a great detail.
Got shorter legs or just want a cropped version? These could be for you.
A classic lighter wash, wear a white bodysuit with these for the full '90s supermodel look.
A classic cut and wash that will last in your wardrobe.
For the vintage lovers out there.
