When we’re asked about our favorite jeans, we always mention a classic pair of high-rise! We love how flattering and comfortable high-waisted jeans are. Couple that with the versatility of straight leg jeans and we’re sold. That’s why we’ve rounded up the 6 best high-waisted straight leg jeans out there!

What Is Considered High-Waisted?

While there is no hard and fast rule, generally any jeans with at least a 10” rise are considered high-rise. Many super high-rise jeans, also called “ultra high rise” or “ribcage” jeans, have at least a 12-inch rise. 

Mid-rise jeans, on the other hand, generally have at least a 7” rise. Anything lower will sit close to your hips and is considered low-rise.

6 High-Waisted Straight Leg Jeans We're Loving

If you’re as obsessed with the baggy jeans trend as we are, this pair is for you. They have all the structure of straight leg jeans (plus, are super high rise) but get quite loose toward the bottom.

Levi’s Women’s High-Waisted Straight Jeans

These ankle jeans come in a classic light wash and are slimmer than some straight leg jeans (they are perfect if you normally love skinny jeans!). They utilize a petite inseam (28.5”), so if you’re 5’4” or under, you might love these!

If you are a details girl, we KNOW you’ll love this pair. These dark wash jeans have unique distressed details at the hemline (including a raw hem), and a 2 button fly to define the waistline.

Kancan Women’s High Rise Slim Straight Jeans

These plus-size jeans feature thigh-shaper technology to prevent inner-thigh rubbing (LOVE this feature). They are also made with stretch denim for ultimate comfort.

This pair of jeans might be the most versatile we’ve ever recommended. They have the perfect straight fit (not too slim and not too baggy) and they come in 5 shades (including black and white!).

We love this pair of vintage-inspired jeans from AGOLDE. They have a bit more structure than mom jeans but have the same nostalgic feel. Pair them with an oversized sweater and white sneakers and you’re ready to go!
