We’ve heard rumours surfacing for a while now, but the latest news from those in the know is that skinny jeans are officially over. So, with the demise of leg-hugging denim’s million year reign, it’s time to feel the breeze on our ankles and embrace flares, boyfriend cuts and mom jeans – mixed in with a sprinkling of denim jackets.

Take a browse through our denim alternatives…
