What to Wear With Straight Leg Jeans

While skinny jeans may never be out of style, there is a new fresh range of new jean silhouettes we are seeing for fall. The past year we’ve also seen a rise in the wide leg, but we are now seeing denim style take a bit of a turn on and focus on the in between of the skinny jeans and wide and get a bit more structured. Straight leg jeans can be worn with almost anything such as work-appropriate outfits or casual wear. Today, I’m sharing a roundup of items that you can wear with straight leg jeans to create different kinds of fashionable outfits.

What to Wear With Straight Leg Jeans

A Blazer

Pairing a blazer with a wide leg jean especially a straight leg jean helps elongate the whole look. Depending on the body type, I’d keep this in mine when wearing a blazer. If you are taller and thinner, I would opt for a boyfriend blazer. If you are a shorter, a more structured blazer may be the answer for you when wearing straight leg jeans.

Strappy heels are the perfect compliment to style straight leg jeans with. It is way more flattering than a clunky boot.

The Details Behind the Look: A silk camisole is an essential in my capsule wardrobe. In the summer months, I would style it alone with this pair of jeans but as we are going into the fall months, layering a blazer and belt bag gives it a little edge. Depending on the shoe, how I style straight leg jeans changes and for this look I wanted to also draw attention to the detail of this scrappy sandals so I gave it a relaxed roll which takes the wide leg to a bit more tailored.

A Bootie

I personally love a crop straight leg jeans with a bootie like the one below as it shows the bootie off and makes a statement.

A Fitted Top

Fitted tops are a great top to pair with the high rise denim as you can get away with shorter tops without showing any skin. Having something fitted such as a body suit or top will help balance out proportions when you are wearing a wide leg.
