While we may not be wearing jeans as often as we normally would – super tight denim doesn’t exactly make for a comfortable working-from-home wardrobe – there are some days when we want to throw on our favourite pair of jeans to feel a bit more put-together and restore some sense of normality.
As ever, the impossibly chic Holly Willoughby has come to the rescue and revealed her favourite pair of M&S jeans to wear at home during lockdown – and they’re perfectly slouchy, flattering and easy to wear.
‘One of my favourite denim shapes is the boyfriend jean,’ Holly wrote on Instagram, ‘it’s super flattering and versatile, but they’re not always very moveable which is where these fab @marksandspencer ‘s one come in with added stretch, meaning I can wear them even when chasing the kids around…
‘For now I am wearing them with t-shirts and sweatshirts but can’t wait to take them ‘out out’ with a heal [sic] and nice top! One day’.
While you may associate the boyfriend style jean with rigid, no-stretch denim and unforgiving cuts, the best thing about this pair – as Holly notes – is the added stretch, which doesn’t compromise on quality or fit, but just makes the fabric that extra bit comfortable.
The M&S product description reads: ‘Work from home in ultimate comfort by slipping into these cotton-rich grey-wash boyfriend jeans. Roomy relaxed fit with mid-rise design and ankle grazer length. Added stretch for flexibility.
‘Made from Italian premium denim fabric. All of the cotton for our clothing is sustainably sourced and always will be.’
The jeans have plenty of five-star reviews on the site, with many praising the soft yet high-quality fabric which make them perfect for WFH.
One customer wrote: ‘If you’re looking for something comfy but stylish in lockdown and are sick of loungewear like me, I recommend these’.
The boyfriend jeans are available in four different shades of denim and the brand’s usual inclusive range of sizes.
