Women's fashionable jeans

What's the first thing you do when you try a pair of jeans on, without fail? Turn around to check how they flatter your derrière, of course! Our number one criteria is that your jeans hug in all the right places. Colour-wise, faded grey jeans were all over the winter collections and we also saw PVC jeans with a faux leather look. Here's what's in store for spring/summer...

> Cuts:
The boyfriend is the cut of the moment. Channel Keira Knightley and wear nonchalant baggy jeans as if you'd just got out of bed and slipped into his jeans. The iconic Levis 501 is, in fact, a variation on the stonewashed boyfriend jean, so you can dust down that pair you've been stowing at the back of your wardrobe - they're back!

- baggy: given an update by the boyfriend cut, roomy straight-legged 501-style jeans that hang on your hips, with or without turn-ups, are back in. Katie Holmes was one of the first to put these on the fashion map. 
- bootcut: making a comeback this season along with the flare and could even end the reign of the skinny jean, still hanging around this season.

> Colour:
Two trends are fighting for our money this season: stonewashed jeans are back with a bang, after a few seasons of samey brut and black. Coloured demins are back to brighten up our spring/summer wardrobes. Dare to wear colours - yes, you can get away with them!
