What makes a comfy pair of jeans? While that totally worn-in pair you’ve had for years might be like a second skin, it’s probably not your prettiest pair. If you’re looking to invest in some new denim for fall, look for lots of stretch, especially if you’re shopping for skinnies. This actually doesn’t equate to a large percentage when it comes to fabric make up. Many jeans are 100 per cent cotton but even one per cent spandex or elastane will add a good amount of stretch. Unless you’re in the market for jeggings, don’t buy jeans that have more than four per cent stretch.

Another important factor in the comfort of jeans is the weight and type of denim. Most manufacturers won’t boast about their denim weight unless there’s something special about it. Denim that is less than 10 ounces is very lightweight and will feel super soft, whereas heavier selvedge denim may feel more rigid — but be longer wearing and more comfortable in the long run as the fabric conforms and softens to your own body.

This season, try something other than skinny jeans like wide leg or boyfriend jeans. These have comfort built right into the style. No need to lunge or wriggle into your pants!
