Guys, it has taken me so so long to find a great fitting pair of distressed jeans that don’t make my thighs look like two cartoon hams. No joke. For someone who is larger on the bottom half, trying to wear paler denim can sometimes be a challenge, which is why I usually stay away from them and stick with my black skinnies.

However, when I spotted this pair of distressed boyfriend jeans in Next, I said to myself ‘hey, go on, give them a go’ and to my surprise I absolutely loved them, I didn’t have to jump up and down to try and fit in my size, they felt so comfortable and actually looked slimming on, shock horror!

A side note, I’ve just realised that a lot of my outfit posts are featuring clothes from Next recently, none of them are sponsored, I’m just really feeling what they have going on at the moment.

This is the first time I have styled these distressed jeans and I wanted to have a go at dressing them up, instead of reaching for a standard (t-shirt and sneakers) Hayley outfit. I wanted a more chic, fashionable and polished look, rather than my go to casual attire.

For this outfit I decided to go for an on-trend metallic crew neck top, leopard print heels and, of course, my new fave Furla Metropolis bag – you can read more about the bag in my previous post if you’re interested. After slipping on the heels and a shimmery top, I felt dressed up enough to hit the town with the hubby for some early evening drinks. I wouldn’t normally feel comfortable doing this when wearing tattered denim, but on this occasion, I was raring to go!

It’s all about finding the right shade, cut and fit that works best for you, now I have that part nailed, I can’t wait to style them in so many different ways.

How would you dress up your distressed jeans?
