June 1, 2022

If there’s one thing we know, it’s that we LOVE straight-leg jeans. They are the perfect combo of structured and comfy, and you can wear them ANYWHERE (seriously… to the office, on a date, to the park… the limit does not exist). Since they go with everything, and that can be a little overwhelming, we pulled together eight outfit ideas to show you how to style straight-leg jeans for all of your occasions.

To see which straight-leg jeans we’d recommend for you, join our community! Answer a few short questions to make a FREE Revelle account, and we’ll provide you with an online store of recommended jeans based on your body shape.

How to Style Straight Leg Jeans: 8 Outfit Ideas

Jeans are widely accepted in the workplace nowadays, and we love the idea of pairing your favorite pair of straight-leg jeans with a fun blazer (even outside the office!).

Wear cropped straight-leg jeans with your funkiest booties or heels. If you don’t have a cropped pair, you can also cuff your own to show off those shoes!

Straight-leg jeans are truly the best basic and can be worn in any season. As the weather cools down in the fall, pair your jeans with a cardigan or turtleneck to stay warm. Add loafers for an even more cozy, casual look.

Add a black leather jacket and some sunnies to your favorite pair of black jeans (If you’re looking for a great pair, we’ve got some recommendations). Layer with a neutral tank top and some ankle boots and you’re ready to hit the town!

We love jeans in the summer (especially a looser pair of jeans that gives you breathing room when it’s hot). To achieve this vacation-inspired look, pair white jeans with a crop top, bodysuit, or swimsuit.

Straight-leg jeans have an innately vintage feel, don’t you think? Maybe it’s the high-rise waistline. Maybe it’s because they have a relaxed fit that resembles mom jeans (just a little less baggy). Or maybe it’s because light-wash straight-leg jeans remind us of our fav 90s looks. Regardless, add a sweater vest and your retro ensemble is complete!

This is our most straightforward style tip yet. Pair a favorite wardrobe essential with another by wearing a crop top with your high-rise jeans. This outfit is a classic, easy-to-wear option that will never go out of style.

Looking for a way to make the whole jean shopping process WAY easier?

That’s where Revelle comes in. When you join — which, BTW, doesn’t cost you anything — we’ll ask you a few questions about your beautiful body. From there, we work our magic (and by magic, we mean technology) to build your personal store. As you like (heart) and dislike (broken heart) jeans, we’ll get to know your tastes, preferences, and style even better so you can find your perfect pair.

Yes, we said it. Wear a denim jacket with your jeans for a fun twist on a neutral outfit. If this intimidates you a little, try black or dark wash jeans. Add funky shoes and accessories (read: bucket hat!) to finish the outfit. The best part? You can wear the jacket any way you want. If you get warm, tie it around your waist or across your chest.
