Should You Try Straight Leg Jeans?

Should you try straight leg jeans?

Have you seen them in magazines and on bloggers and wondered? You might be able to tell from these photos that my answer would be an emphatic YES! I happen to love the versatility of the cropped length. Sometimes it can be tricky to find the right pair, so I would encourage you to try on several cuts/styles before giving up. This is the pair I featured on Wednesday’s post. They are on sale through today, so snag them now!

Here’s what I look for: a higher waist, a leg that really is straight (rather than slightly narrowing), and a length that hits just above your ankle rather than higher on the calf (it’s more flattering). I think they look cute with a shirt tucked in or with a slouchy sweater. I also like that I can wear them with sneakers, heels, or ankle boots. How fun is this top?! It’s part of the Olivia Palermo x Banana Republic collection, and unfortunately it already sold out. I’m so mad! I even shared it quickly so that wouldn’t happen. Sorry! I’ll link a similar one below that is on sale!

Don’t forget about the Shopbop sale which goes through today. I featured all my favorites on Wednesday’s post with pictures of my favorite jeans in action. I’ll add them below too. Did you all order anything?

    I would say yes if they stop a bit above the ankle! If not, I think it would look a bit weird! 😉

    I always see those jeans on fashion bloggers and wonder the same thing. You’re definitely selling me on the trend! I love the way you styled them. The pops of red are just perfect.

    I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

    Everyone is sharing straight leg jeans and I feel bad about selling or donating all mine! I prefer skinny jeans though, that’s what I wear most of the time 🙂

    I did eventually shop the shopbop sale in the final hours, ha! Picked up a few Christmas pressies 🙂

    Hope you are having a really good weekend!
