Topshop are the high street masters when it comes to denim. There is nowhere better. The proof? A pair of Topshop MOTO jeans is sold every 10 seconds and, at Topshop's Flagship store on Oxford Street, the brand shifts one pair every minute.
And, of course, that makes sense. We all own at least two pairs of Topshop jeans (and I bet one of those pairs is a Topshop black skinny jean!). Once you’ve found your favourite style, if you're like me, you'll keep going back to update them as new washes and colourways come out, and you’ve finally worn your old pair to death.
Here’s a guide to each of Topshop's classic jean styles so you can find the right one for you.
Topshop MOTO Joni Jeans
Skin tight and ultra high-rise with a retro silhouette. The super-stretchy Joni jeans are made for the fashion brave and, with no front pockets, are the closest thing to a “jegging”. Their high elastane percentage means they’re actually super comfy to wear and really do well to hold you in.
Topshop MOTO Jamie Jeans
High rise and ankle grazing, these skinny jeans are said to fit pretty much all shapes. With multiple pockets and a great level of stretch, they look and feel great. Coming in a wide range of styles from raw edge to step hems, ripped and even vinyl, I can assure you these are the ultimate Topshop skinny.
Topshop MOTO Mom Jeans
This fashionable retro style features a high-rise waist, looser leg fit that tapers towards the hem. The more rigid denim doesn’t have much stretch at all so ensure you pick a size that you feel comfortable in. You’ll find this style in a vast range of styles from acid wash to ripped and even embroidered. Embroidery is a newish thing for Topshop and they have totally nailed it. Their could-by-designer appliqués will have people double-taking and asking where you got them from.
Topshop MOTO Leigh Jeans
This skinny style is super similar to the Jamie but with a lower rise waist band. The perfect everyday staple style still has the ankle grazing hem which is super flattering and again has a great stretch for comfort. You’ll find these in all of your favourite classic washes from grey to indigo to white.
Topshop MOTO Hayden Jeans
Made for busy weekends and off-duty days, the low-sling Hayden jeans are your go-to for casual dressing. Cut in an oversized boyfriend fit, these are best worn with the hem rolled up.
Topshop MOTO Dree Jeans
Keep it current with the newest of the styles and my personal favourite, the Dree kick flare jeans. Made of low stretch denim, this stylish ankle-showing fit is the fash-pack's go-to style. High in the waist, they’re also super flattering and work for both day and night with either a heel or a flat.
Topshop Jeans Size Guide
It’s always so hard when buying jeans online to know what size to order, but at the same time if you’re anything like me you can’t bare the thought of going into store after work and squeezing yourself into countless pairs whilst sweating profusely. Guilty of ordering the same pair in three sizes, it’s really not ideal when your £120 down in your bank account for about month before you finally return them.
So, how do they actually fit size-wise? I personally find they come up very slightly large if not true to size. I am between a sizes in their jeans (between 8 and 10) which is super annoying, but I do find they tend to stretch quite a bit so I recommend you get the size that’s slightly snug and spend the week wearing them in. Previously I’ve played it safe and got the 10 and within a few weeks they’ve stretched too much to fit correctly.
