I’ve been getting tons of requests for straight leg jeans outfits, so here are four simple ways to wear them!
Need some ideas of straight leg jeans outfits?
As straight leg jeans become more and more popular, you guys are asking for how to wear them. So today for 4 Ways to Wear It, I’m sharing 4 cute straight leg jeans outfits to help you get some inspiration and help with styling them.
Looking for a pair of straight leg jeans?
I own a few pairs of straight leg jeans. I’m still a skinny jeans girl through and through, but straight leg jeans are fun to mix every once in a while. These are my favorite pairs:
- Everlane Cheeky Jean – these are the ones I’m wearing above. They were a bit long on me, so I chopped off the hem and now they’re much better.
- Levi’s 501 skinny jeans – these are called skinny jeans, but the fit is more straight leg to me, which just a slightly tighter ankle, and the light wash makes them feel more “mom jeans.” You can see me wearing them here.
4 straight leg jeans outfit ideas
Outfit #1: Try your straight leg jeans with a sweater and slim ankle boots
An easy outfit idea with straight leg jeans is with a sweater. You can do a button up cardigan, like I did here, or you can do a regular pullover sweater.
I like to do a little half tuck to elongate my leg line and define my waist a bit. If you don’t like the half tuck, just stick to shorter sweaters so you don’t drown in fabric.
And if your sweater is super oversized and you want to half tuck, just be careful because this style of high rise jeans can make a super long shirt get bunchy in the back and on the sides when it’s half tucked.

Outfit #2: Wear your straight leg jeans with a tucked in t-shirt
A tucked in t-shirt looks super chic and easy with a pair of straight leg jeans. During the summer, it looks especially good with a basic white tee and leather sandals.
But during the colder months, try a long sleeve t-shirt and some flats. You can also layer a coat over this!
I tried this outfit with flat boots, and the shape of the jeans and light wash color mixed with black ankle boots (like a combat or chelsea boot) was clunky and unattractive in my opinion. I’ve seen people wear it, but it wasn’t a good choice for me.
So I’d recommend sticking to a flat, a sneaker, or a lighter color heeled ankle boot like the ones I wore in the outfit above.

Outfit #3: Try your straight leg jeans with a tucked in blouse
You can absolutely dress up your straight leg jeans! Try them with a tucked in blouse, and then add a pair of heels or dressy flats.
And for winter, toss a dress coat over the top of this, or a chic cardigan, for a little extra warmth.

Outfit #4: Try your straight leg jeans with a tee and cardigan
For a super casual, trendy look, a graphic tee with straight leg jeans is fun and youthful. I paired it with a classic cardigan and some sleek white sneakers to keep the outfit feeling a little less teen and a little more age appropriate for me.
And, of course, my curls and a little bit of jewelry help to keep the outfit feel more polished and less grungy.
