2017 sees the return of straight leg denim. Say goodbye to your skinny jeans and welcome the old favourites back into your wardrobe. Straight leg jeans are the definition of a relaxed, chilled-out style – and they are great for almost every body type. They are relaxed, yet very flattering if you rock them right.
Make sure you get the right fit. They should hug your hips and thighs before loosening up for the classic straight leg fit – pair up with a jumper or tee and you have the perfect chilled-out look. Whilst you can partner straight leg jeans with a top easily, shoes however can be more tricky. Here are some of your best choices…
Truly casual days call for a pair of straight leg denim partnered with canvas trainers like Converse. Canvas trainers finish off the dressed-down look perfectly. For blue jeans, opt for white trainers.
Or, you can also opt for slip-on trainers, which suit casual straight leg jeans down to a tee.
A simple pair of ballet flats look great with your favourite denim in warmer weather. Keep them on show by making sure the hem of your jeans should fall to about an inch off the floor.
Looking to dress up your casual favourites? Low kitten heels are the best way to dress up straight leg jeans. They are perfect for transforming your look when you decide to pop for a few after-work drinks.
A pair of low heel ankle boots and the straight leg jeans combination serve great together for the colder climates – but don’t hide your booties, show them off. Don’t tuck the jeans into the boots and instead let the jeans either hang over the top or cuff the jeans.
When the sun makes an appearance, partner a pair of jewelled mule sandals with your straight leg jeans. This is the open style shoe that can stand you in good stead walking the high street.
Brogues are the perfect choice to transform your straight leg jeans into sleek formal attire, fit for in the office or in a restaurant. You’ll want a smart brown or lighter pair if you’re wearing blue jeans – as black can often clash.
As you can probably tell, you’ve got quite a versatile range of footwear to choose from when you decide to don your straight leg jeans. Keep comfort and casual style in mind and you won’t go wrong.
