TOPSHOP JEANS REVIEW

LEIGH JEANS
If you're not a fan of jeans because you find them too restricting then you'll love these. There is literally no denim in them, it's all a stretchy cotton material which I loveee! They're so comfy and perfect for summer because they're so light. Drawbacks to these are the colour fades pretty quickly which is hella annoying considering the price tag.. they also lose their shape quite quickly which isn't great. No one likes saggy knees or crotch area. Also they got rid of the roll hem which looked awesome with flats and now there is no hem at all, they're just sort of cut so I roll mine up myself.


JAMIE JEANS
This is my favourite style by far and I have myself a few pairs of these. The denim is the best quality out of the lot- it's still not really denim though, more of a lycra/cotton mix and still really comfy. The colour doesn't fade with them as quickly either but if you find your jeans fade a lot then you can wash them with a tablespoon of salt to help, I do whenever I get a new pair to help the colour last. These don't lose their shape, I remember them being marketed as 'performance stretch' so it might have something to do with that. They also make my bum look good because of how tight and high waisted they are which is a plus.


JONI JEANS
These are basically legging to be honest with you, not that that is a bad thing. I love Joni jeans especially for nights out because they are soo high waisted and I feel like they hold my belly in and make me look really perky and streamlined... sorry about the weird description. But these have major drawbacks which I think everyone has heard about now. They loose their colour SO fast and I have no idea why, you can see from the pictures of mine how much they've faded. Also after a while they seem to get stretch marks which I think is where the elastic in them melts in the wash and goes weird, the only thing I can say to stop this happening is don't tumble dry them. They fit perfectly though and I can't find anything like them for the same/cheaper price so I always repurchase. I kinda think it would be worth me investing in some American Apparel ones but they're soo much money and it pains me to think about spending that much..


ALL THE OTHER KINDS
Mehh, does anyone even by Baxter Jeans? I'm not a fan myself, then denim is way too thick and there isn't a very wide selection of colours. The Mom Jeans always look soo nice on the models but I find them too baggy on me and I know they're meant to be but I want a little shape.. girl with legs>potato. The Asos Mom jeans are much nicer if you're in the market for a pair. I'm going to do a blog post on them asap which I will link here for you so you can see how they fit. Hope you found this review helpful and feel free to leave me any questions you have below and I will try to answer them!

  1. Hey!
    I came across this review through google :)
    I have also two pairs of joni jeans, a black one and a blue one, but there are big differences in quality, i think. The blue one is perfect, but the black became so baggy after one time wearing. The material is a lot thinner than of the blue one. Unfortunately I cannot wear the black one anymore, it looks horrible :/ I don't know if I maybe got a faulty jeans..
    What are your experiences with the black joni jeans?

    1. Thats really interesting, I find the black ones fine but I know they changed them slightly and I bought the one from the second batch which have black stitching. The older version has white. Maybe thats why yours aren't as good? x

  2. Hi! I have a pair of joni jeans in the darkest blue color, but they have created some sort of streach mark on the bum area. Did this happen to you? Do you know what could of happened or if they are just faulty...

    1. I had that colour too and the exact same thing happened! I think when they're put in the dryer or on a hot wash the elastic in the jeans shrinks however I returned mine with no problems so hopefully you can too! x

  3. Hi Freya's Fashion Chapter! I extremely love your post it's great to know about Topshop jeans considering I never dare myself to purchase them online only until I have tried them out at the store which is always a rare thing too, but they all look great on you :) x

  4. Hi, I was just wondering if you had a problem with the dye running during a wash on the black JONI jeans which causes the colour to fade? I have heard some rumours and would like to know your opinion before buying a pair :) thanks x

    1. Yes I have now had a problem, the crotch and knee areas have faded quite badly- almost to white and overall the jeans are practically grey rather than black which is so annoying because these ones kept their shape! x

  5. I love my black joni jeans!! Amazing fit and I want to get more colours. Do you think the denim is the same thickness for the Joni and Jamie jeans? I have heard the Jamie jeans have a thicker denim fabric. I would advise washing them at 30 degrees and not tumble drying. In fact, don't tumble dry at all as this really shortens the life of your clothes!

    1. Yeah Jamie is definitely thicker than Joni, I know I shouldn't tumble dry but I'm too lazy to hang everything out haha!

  6. Thank you so much for this, I've been needing to buy some jeans and have been swaying towards the topshop ones but ,obviously because they're a bit pricey, I've been a little wary

  7. I completely agree with you about Leigh's.
    I got black ones last summer and now they are grey and loose.
    But i still love them and keep buying more as they fit me the bestest of all.. Now I got 3 more - in indigo, vintage blue and blue and keep switching among them so they last longer..

  8. Some of my friends re-dye their black topshop jeans, I often ask them if they're brand new when I see them at school, definitely worth a try! This is a really helpful post!

    1. Glad you found it helpful and yes definitely give re-dyeing a go, the dylon black is good and it goes straight in the washing machine with your jeans so is really easy! You have to run an empty wash afterwards to make sure all the dye is out of the drum so you don't ruin anything! x

  9. Hi,
    Came across here from google. Wish I saw earlier. Your review is a gem!
    My first topshop jeans were jamie one, and I think i wore it for a year or something without colour fade then it faded naturally. I found the material a bit thick for me though.
    In the last two years my size reduced to 0 size so I had to buy some more jeans. Last year I got a joni black jeans (i assume it is that one since it has no pockets and high waisted), I kinda had to buy it cuz it was the only 0 size (UK4) in store and I needed black jeans urgently. It was the best fit ever. Unfortunately a week later with the first wash it lost its colour dramatically. I was very disappointed and tried to talk this issue with Topshop but they couldn't do anything since I purchased from another branch in another country. I still wear it because it is awesome but some parts of it are nearly white lol. I consider to dye it, but Im using someone else's washing machine and I heard too many horror stories about dyes :/ Should i go for it?
    I also got checked pattern joni jeans with black one, and they seem to be doing fine.
    I wanted an alternative option to joni due to fading problem and I got leigh jeans, navy and burgundy. Navy seems to be fading little bit, burgundy is quite new so I don't know what will happen. However leigh jeans didn't fit me as perfect as joni ones even though it is same size. It doesn't graze my ankles and its a bit loose. They didn't keep their shape like joni jeans neither, it just keeps getting loose more. I ended up disappointed again.
    So my question is: Have you found any alternative to Joni Jeans? Similar fit, keeps shape and no colour fade. I am thinking to try other brands but Im not sure which one. My River Island jeans used to be very good but 6 sizes are very big to me now. They sell 4 online but I didn't want to risk it for that much price tag since I have no chance to try it on beforehand. I don't know about American Apparel too.. Obviously there are not so many brands making clothes for my size, so thats another issue.

    They all look gorgeous on you btw! :)

    1. Sounds tricky being a uk4 because like you said not everywhere carries the size which must be so annoying. I've found nothing that compares to Topshop joni jeans unfortunately. They just seem to fit too perfectly. Of course they are a knock off of the American Apparel ones and I'm sure they stock a UK4 so I'd say give them a go. As for the dyeing clothes horror stories I'd say ignore and go ahead and dye them! As long as you remember to run an empty load afterwards and make sure there's no dye around the machine that could get on things you'll be fine. If you're not convinced you could run a black top through after the empty load to make sure all the dye is absorbed. If you end up trying any other brands version of the joni jeans let me know what you think? I want to try the Asos version as I really love Asos mom jeans so have kind of high hopes however a YouTuber I watch bought the white pair and they were really see through. Might just be the colour though..? Hope you found this helpful!! x

  11. I like the jeans in top shop as good for sizing. The only problem I have are the black jeans which fade so quickly

  12. Great review, I love these jeans. They are definitely worth buying a few pairs, they last so long!

  13. Hi! I have the Jamie Moto Jeans, and have noticed that after a few wears they're starting to bunch/create rolls around the knees and crotch. I usually dry my jeans to shrink them, but have noted that the tag says not to tumble dry, do you have any idea if drying them ruins them or stretches them out? Thanks!

    1. Tumble drying them definitely does them no favours because it shrinks the lycra and elastic parts of the fabric. It's better to let them dry on a rack but honestly who has time for that in such a sunless country! Maybe radiator would be best as it wont be as hot as the tumble dryer x
