ASOS Ridley Jeans

ASOS Ridley Jeans We all know the struggle to find the perfect pair of jeans.; particularly online. Every store on the high street follows a different sizing system, every cut sits differently, and even when you think you’ve found the perfect fit and go back to get the same pair of jeans in a different colour or wash, it never quite fits the same way.

ASOS Ridley Jeans It can be a truly frustrating endeavour; especially if your body shape differs from the norm. I for one am short with big-ish thighs (relatively speaking) and a small waist, and it is extremely difficult to find jeans that fit perfectly everywhere. Until about a year ago I only wore low-waisted skinny jeans – they kinda worked, so I didn’t stray away. But as my style evolved, so did my taste for high waisted trousers…wide they should be, and cropped if possible – everything to make my legs look longer.

ASOS Ridley Jeans But high-waisted skinny jeans?? Nahh…I wasn’t quite ready to make the plunge. They wouldn’t fit anyway…if I managed to get them over my thighs they’d most likely stick out around my waist. Yet, there was this one pair of jeans from ASOS everyone was talking about – the Ridley jeans. They come in all sorts of washes and colours, with ripped or busted knees, as ankle grazers, high-waisted or low-waisted and for petite, tall and curvy women.

ASOS Ridley Jeans Everyone who bought them loves them, so once I managed to get my hands on a promo code that promised 20% off, I decided to finally look for the perfect pair of Ridley’s. I swear it took me about an hour to decide, as the selection is overwhelming huge, but after much deliberation I went for a pair of high-waisted ankle grazers in washed black with ripped knees.

ASOS Ridley Jeans I was so nervous when the package arrived two days later…would they fit?? Would I have to send them back? As you can see in the pictures, they fit like a second skin. I can’t believe I actually managed to pick the right size (size 4) without trying them on first…They are incredibly soft and comfy, lift the bum and hold everything in place that needs holding. So if you happen to need or want a new pair of jeans, please do yourself a favour and get a pair of Ridley jeans. You won’t regret it!

    has anyone with larger thighs who has had a pair of these for a while experienced any wearing away in the inner crotch? would really like to know because that was the downfall of my last 2 pairs of highwasted jeans, one topshop one levi’s.

      Thanks for the comment Cassie! I haven’t experienced this myself, but I can totally see where you’re coming from. The material is relatively thin and stretchy. These jeans were definitely not made for eternity either 😉 xx

    These are super flattering on you! I really like the higher waist too, it gives it a nice throwback feel. Thanks for sharing this, you look lovely as always!

    You’re right about how hard it is to find a pair of jeans that fits like a second skin considering that we all come in different packages. Those Ridley jeans look so comfy and accentuate the best parts of your bottom half I can see why you’re totally swooning over them! And your outfit is something I wouldn’t mind wearing it myself – love the studded jacket in particular, oh gotta have it, NOW hehe. Another fantastic outfit from you I am smitten with. Thank you for the inspiration! 😀 xx

    I totally feel you, ordering online is sometimes quite difficult, especially when you order from Australia, United States, United Kingdom, and even every country in Europe has their own measurements, let alone all the different brands. But I found the perfect skinny jeans at Tommy Hilfiger, so now I won’t even bother anymore and have seriously bought it in almost every colour available 😉

    Love, Rachel
