I have to say that I have a love/hate relationship with jeans. It’s not that I don’t love wearing them, it’s just the mission it is to find a pair that make me feel great wearing them. Do you ever have that problem?

Jeans have actually been on my mind these last few days and that’s because I really feel the need for a new pair, now that it’s time to put the summer dresses and sandals away.

They must be the most staple item of clothing that we can own, yet for me, they are the trickiest items of clothing to buy! I find that I spend ages going around the shops, looking for that perfect pair that fit like a glove and stay like it for the whole day. It’s a task that I don’t enjoy doing but when I find the pair, then I know that they’re worth every penny spent.

Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, which is a national charity. It takes place on 21st September and is widely supported throughout the country.

Every year, money is raised to fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects aiming to transform the lives of children affected with genetic disorders.

Supporting the fundraising couldn’t be simpler with wearing jeans on Jeans for Genes Day.  It has to be the outfit choice that most people will have in their wardrobe.

They have some fantastic jeans at Simply Be. What’s really great is that they have a jean guide for you to figure out what pair might be most suitable for you. You can go for shape and sculpt, opt for mid or high rise and get a pair that will stretch with you. The trick is to know what suits you and what doesn’t!

My main bugbear is finding a style that I like but then once I’ve worn them for a day, finding that they end up completely losing their shape.

I get on better with jeans that have a little stretch and that are higher in the waist. My favourites remain skinny jeans as they work so well with whatever you might be wearing on your feet. It’s also worth trying new places as it’s easy to stick with what you are used to, but you could be missing out on a pair that were literally made for you.

I’ve been dreading the summer ending but actually I do rather like shopping for autumnal pieces and jeans pretty much make up a large part of that capsule wardrobe don’t they?
