Straight-Leg Jeans Outfits That're Straight-Up Perfect

It’s not just you, straight-leg jeans are the new skinnies. This simple vintage-inspired denim has become a favorite of women in NYC, Los Angeles, and everywhere in between. But, with any changing trend, sometimes it takes a bit of inspiration to know the subtle changes to make when swapping from your old go-tos. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to how to wear straight-leg jeans, but there are a few outfits we constantly have in our arsenal. 

Whether it be a work-appropriate look with heels, to something more casual for weekends spent with friends, these looks will inspire you to make these pants your go-to this year (even for those die-hard skinny jean fans). Find our picks below along with links to shop styles we’re loving. 

2018 is all about color, but a straightforward pair of jeans is a great way to bring balance to your ensemble. Try a red top and jacket with your denim, then finish with a cool pair of statement shoes.

Since straight-leg jeans tend to skew more casual, one way to dress them up for the office is by styling them with classic pieces like a sleek blazer and pointed ankle boots. We love the pop of color that a scarf adds as the finishing touch too. 

If you’d categorize your style as ladylike, one of our favorite ways to style straight-leg jeans is with a simple fitted knit and a pair of heels. You can add a belt to accentuate the jeans high-waist and finish with a structured bag.

We’re proponents of denim on denim for all occasions, but what makes this ensemble especially cool is the use of key trend pieces like white boots and a beret to elevate the ensemble.
