How To Wear Straight Leg Jeans

In case you haven’t heard, there are some new jeans in town, and while skinny jeans are not entirely out of style, I’m starting to embrace the newer styles.

Most of the jeans I see are flare, bootcut, and straight leg jeans. I have some flare jeans, but I haven’t worn the bootcut yet (I’m in the process of finding some I like).

My favorite style so far has been the straight leg jean. Maybe because it’s closest to the skinny jean, I don’t know, but this style of jean is versatile and comfortable.

Get the right fit with straight leg jeans:

Fit with jeans varies from person to person, but a pair of jeans that fits you well is always key. I have found certain brands that fit me well, such as Wit & Wisdom and Kut from the Kloth, and will purchase those brands in different styles.

Here are some things to look at when buying straight leg jeans:

The length of the jeans: Straight leg jeans usually hit around your ankle bone. Avoid TOO short because they’ll hit a wider part of your leg and look like capri pants.

Should they be snug or loose on your legs? The fit is a personal preference, but I don’t like too slouchy of a look, I prefer a slimmer straight leg jean.

How To Wear Straight Leg Jeans

One of the reasons I like straight leg jeans is that you can pretty much wear any style of shoe.

1. Sneakers

It’s easy to grab a pair of sneakers and wear them with your favorite straight leg jean.

2. Booties

I have mentioned this before, but the higher shaft booties are trending since our jeans are shorter. I love a bootie with my straight leg jeans.

3. Loafers/Mules

Loafers and mules look great with straight leg jeans, especially in early fall when the weather is still warm. Once it gets cold, I’ve got to cover my ankles!

What do you think about the denim trends? Which style is your favorite, wide leg, bootcut, or straight leg?

Beauty For the Heart™— The joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

Truth: The Israelites repent and promise to change their lives by obeying God’s words. Nehemiah reminds them that the joy of the Lord is their strength.

We have this joy too! We can rejoice knowing that Jesus is full of grace and mercy. His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22–24).
