& Other Stories’ jeans department has levelled up in the last year.
While H&M’s sister brand has always had jeans in its roster, it’s been elevating its current line-up with pieces that are not just of the moment, such as jumbo jeans, but also have the potential to be forever staples.
Jeans have always been included in must-have lists no matter your style (yes, it’s prescribed for minimalists’ capsule wardrobes and maximalists’ more-is-more arsenal) – but there’s also no denying that jean-hunting can be a downer. The perfect pair can be quite elusive.
There will always be good options from retailers that specialise in jeans of course, but they’re not exactly affordable. You have to think of them more as investment pieces.
Sizing and pricing are just a couple of factors to think about, but then there’s also the quality of the denim. There’s nothing as saddening as finding the right pair of jeans only to put them in the washing machine and finding them faded when you take them out.
So I was definitely delighted to see that & Other Stories seems to be trying to cater to all of our jeans needs.
Of course, we already love the brand for its take on different city-inspired styles, and we can see so many sleek pieces in its jeans range for an affordable price.
From high-waist to wide-leg, the brand has them all (keep an eye out for trending styles named Keeper and Precious).
