I’ve shared before that I’m a picky denim shopper. Hey, what can I say? I just know what I like in my jean selection, and I tend to stick with it. If you looked at my denim stack right now, you’d see one common theme: All my pairs have a straight-leg fit.
I love good straight-leg jeans because they’re stylistically universal. Dress them up; dress them down; wear them with a T-shirt or your favorite going-out top. The outfit ideas are endless. Plus, they go with pretty much all of the shoe styles I care about, from ankle boots to heels to sneakers. So luckily for me, the rest of the fashion world has been favoring straight-fit denim over super-snug styles. (Though, I have a feeling classic skinny jeans will never really go away.) Therefore, the internet and my favorite denim brands are filled with some truly amazing straight-leg-jean options, from tailored to roomier fits, in every wash.
Speaking of my favorite brands, below, I’m sharing the six best straight-leg-jean brands that have perfected the art of this classic style. Ahead, see which ones I trust, how I’m wearing my favorite fits, and shop each pair.
