Q: I'm looking to invest in a good pair of jeans and wondering which brand is recommended? My budget is up to £200 and looking for a style with a bit of staying power! Please help! - sophiehawkes23

A: Before Christmas, the Grazia girls went to a presentation by James Jeans. If you consider that our age ranges from early twenties to mid forties, our heights from 5 foot 5 to 5 foot 11 and our sizes from 25 to 28. We all got a pair and we all love them. The team is headed by women who have been in the jeans retail and/or design business for years. We were all impressed by how much they knew and how carefully each style had been thought through. I (size 27 and in the upper age range!) got the Hunter Addiction, a straight leg, mid rise, dark wash, and love them (about £175). Another big hit in the office and in a much lower price range are the Uniqlo skinny jeans. Great cut and under £30.
