We've tried on 30 Pairs of Straight-Leg Jeans and Found Our Absolute Favourite
It's time to clear out your skinny-jean drawer and refresh it with some trendy and stylish straight-leg denim.
We never thought we'd see the day - but... we're officially obsessed with straight-leg denim jeans. For the past decade, our go-to denim was always super super *super* tight skinny jeans - so finding a straight-leg pair that we loved took a lot of time and patience. After being on the hunt for the perfect pair for about 2 months, we finally stumbled upon the most amazing, ultra-flattering pair.
Before we get into it, if you're not already aware, straight leg jeans normally hug you at your waist and hips, and are meant to fall straight down from your mid-thigh to your ankle - streamlining close to your body. So basically - they're the perfect mix between a skinny jean and a boyfriend fit. Not too tight but not too baggy either.
Reformation Cynthia High Rise Straight Long Jeans_____________________
One of the biggest problems we found when shopping for straight-leg jeans was they were super unflattering, especially on the butt area. Truthfully, the only pair of jeans that we tried on that didn't have this problem was a pair from Reformation! Their Cynthia High Rise Straight Long Jean comes in 4 washes - washed-out black, light blue, cool-toned blue, and a medium blue. The jeans are a true-rigid denim, high-waisted and 33L - they look cute and casual bunched up with a pair of sneakers, and very fancy when worn with heels. Also - Reformation is a sustainable brand and their clothes are made with a lot of integrity, I mean - can it get much better than that? - it's a win-win!
If you're interested in purchasing a rigid, straight-leg jean that still makes your butt look peachy, we totally recommend these ones.
