You ready for a shocker? For I, Anna, have fallen in love with a pair of trousers and they’re not black. Heck – they’re not even block colour. They’re patterned. I know, I know – take a seat. I’ll give you the backstory.

I was in Topshop and well, feeling spendy. It was one of those payday moments where it’s burning a hole in your pocket, but there’s nothing in the shops that you like – you know the one? I even traipsed round Zara and nope, nothing. Na-dah. Then while perusing Topshop I came across these jeans. Tile Print Leighs - my preferred cut of jean with a stick on skin finish and the main selling point, a stretchy waistband. Oh yeah. I’ve only ever owned black or dark wash pairs in the past but these were like nothing I’d seen before; a blue patten on a white background that would more at home on a legging. I was intrigued, so in the basket they went and without even realising it I’d stumbled across the perfect spring jean. Ok I’ve sort of just made this category up. But you know when the sun is shining, birds are tweeting and your all-black ensemble just looks a little unseasonal? Swap your denim for these and you’re done. A hit of instant spring prep, but without getting too colourful.

Seeing as my penchant for pattern is pretty new I’ve been pairing them with a simple shaped shirt in some kind of monochrome and either rolling up the ankles and cracking out my ASH Jalouse Boots (do they ever come off my feet? No) or whipping them on at the weekend with my Nike Free Runs. Though I do have a striped blazer on order from ASOS – so who knows. Pattern on pattern? Woah nelly – maybe I’m getting a tad far ahead of myself. But it’s fair to say that the spring jean slot in my wardrobe that prior to this purchase I didn’t even know existed, has well and truly been filled.

    I am a lover of print pants and have admired these in your vlogs for a while now. Patterned pants were a big change for me too – a far cry from my go to black jeans!

    I bought these over the weekend and I’m loving them! I was a bit scared at first and like you have been pairing them with plain, neutral colours. They definitely are the perfect spring jean! x

  • Lisa

    You look lovely! They really suit you well!

    It would be sooooo helpful when you would add what sizes you got in your items (also in hauls etc.). Just a suggestion.

  • Patrizia Sacco

    They are great and would probably even look better when worn with white!

  • Lola

    I was so tempted on my last Topshop visit but I don’t know If I can justify it?! btw Your legs are amazing!

    They look great and I love a pair of Leigh jeans, too. I need a new pair so may just be tempted enough to buy a bolder print this time (I always go for black or dark wash, too).

    I have these jean too and I love them! Only thing I find annoying about Leigh jeans is the inconsistent sizing between the different colours.
