How to Style Straight Leg Jeans

Straight leg jeans have become my favorite go-to style lately. So today, I’m sharing some of my favorite pairs, along with lots of ways to style them!

When considering how to style straight leg jeans, there really are no rules. Since they tend to more of a cropped style and are obviously a straight fit, it’s fun to play with proportions and create shape with your choice of top.

How to Find the Most Flattering Straight Leg Jeans

My favorite straight leg jeans have a slim, cropped fit. I like them to hit about an inch above my ankle bone. I will typically look for a high rise with some stretch that is comfortable through the waist hips and thigh. Then I will just cut the hem to the length I prefer! Since I love a raw hem, this method works great!

This video shares how I cut my jeans to get them the length I find most flattering.

What Shoes to Wear with Straight Leg Jeans

Don’t be afraid to play around with your shoe choices when styling straight leg jeans! Heels, flats, mules, sneakers, and booties all pair well with them. The only style I would suggest avoiding is taller boots which don’t tend to be as flattering.
