My favorite jeans are half off today, making them about $35. I think I’ll order another pair.
LOFT’s curvy fit straight leg jeans: they’re super stretch and comfortable, but they don’t stretch completely out of shape until about the end of the second day. They’re snug enough to fit into boots without (too much) bunching at the knees.
All the same, I don’t think they’re a great look for me except with boots. They create what others have called a “triangle” or “piano leg” out of my bottom half. “Straight leg” jeans are a misnomer if you’ve got a full hip and thigh area. If jeans really go “straight” from your hip down, then you’ve got a wide or trouser leg jean.
I really dig the look of a trouser leg pair of jeans, or a bootcut that isn’t too tight in the thigh and knee.
I haven’t quite found the perfect pair for me (these look promising but I’m waiting until they go on sale).
It rankles the minimalist in me: needing two cuts of jeans, one to wear with boots and one to wear with flats (and possibly another, longer pair to wear with heels). Especially as certain tops may work with one cut of jeans and most definitely not work with another.
But I’m aiming to have two great pairs of each cut and deal with it.
How about you? What’s your favorite style of jeans?
