I am something of a fan of Justine Picardie's 'The Closet Thinker' column in Sunday's Stella magazine. Real issues written about (solved) with intelligence and panache. This week she picked a universally 'pet' topic - the perfect jeans. She makes some (welcome) reflections on the need for more grown up looks -- tailored, dark and suited to specific body type. More importantly she hones in on some key requirements -- contoured waistbands (higher at the back), flattening (flattering) pocket-less fronts. Thank you Justine for focusing our minds.

We'd like to add 1 other key element to her list -- 'butt-enhancement'. And point you in the direction of Starr Dailey-Webb's AOKI jeans which she emphasizes have this effect (contoured waistbands come as standard).

Below a few of our favourites that we now view with renewed respect.

Wide leg, high waist Traci
or, skinny, mid-waist Mandy
And as we're on the topic, tummy-flattening and waist contoured can't be done better than by Undesigned's Kick Flare bamboo denim jean.
