Tapered jeans are big news this season, and with good reason. Unlike their bootcut counterparts, tapered denims are looser at the top and become narrower towards the ankle to deliver a comfortable, form-fitting style that's not too tight.
If you're concerned about your size and worried that skinny jeans aren't right for you (especially if you feel like you have big thighs or a large bottom), tapered jeans are the answer. Because they're slightly roomier and loose at the top of the leg and in the crotch than skinnies, they offer that little bit of ‘give' that you're looking for. Tapered jeans are also great for tall shoppers, as they flatter the leg without making you look too slim.
Get the look
When it comes to styling your tapered jeans, we've got all the tips and tricks for a superb look. One of our favourite looks for this season is tapered grey jeans with a placement-print white tee, sporty runners and a designer leather biker jacket. There's something about the ensemble that exudes effortless cool, and it's dapper enough to cross the smart/casual bridge with ease. Or, for something a little more relaxed, team your tapered-fit jeans with a check shirt and suede desert boots for your own take on everyday Western-inspired style.
Acid wash tapered jeans are seeing a rise in interest this season, so choose from dark wash or light blue to suit your wardrobe. Light acid wash denim, a crisp white tee and ice-white runners are a match made in style heaven.
Twisted tapered jeans
Popularised by legendary denim purveyors Levi's, the twisted jean belongs firmly in the fashion hall of fame. Twisted tapered jeans feature slight twisting to the leg seams to add extra interest to the design. Twisted tapered denims are best paired with simple single-tone tees and sweaters so that the denim design can take centre stage.
Finding your fit
Many people shop online for jeans on eBay or Amazon and are sorely disappointed when their denims arrive. Because these stores deal in pretty much everything you could wish to buy, the information you need to make the right purchase isn't always readily available. Shop online with 883 Police and you'll find all the measurement information you need. And, if you hit the sale section, you'll find a selection of superb tapered jeans (up to size 40) to choose from at a fraction of the price.
