Jeans are a timeless wardrobe staple that can be the foundation of many a great outfit.
Smarten up your favourite pair for an evening out with a blazer and heels or throw on your most comfortable trainers and a raincoat to walk your dogs.
However, jeans are also notoriously hard to shop, with varying sizes (and prices) throughout the high street.
To help you on your journey to finding the best-fitting jeans in your closet, we've compiled our favourite styles from big-name brands like Marks & Spencer and ASOS, across a range of budgets.
From high-waisted 'mom' jeans, bootcut to skinny, there's a vast array of denim in form-fitting and baggier styles to shop ahead.
