Plus-size straight leg jeans are the most popular pair of jeans (next to skinny jeans) because they are the original jean style. Cowboys and miners in the Old West wore them. Over the years, they have been worn by people of all genders They’re now the standard jean style. The classic straight leg jean is a jean that has the same leg width from the top to the hem—it’s also sometimes called a straight up-and-down cut. They traditionally have five pockets, belt loops and a front zipper.
Straight leg jeans are ideal for petites and tall figures, as they create a single line from waist to hem. When petites (5’4”) and under wear a straight leg jean, it creates a visual trick where they seem taller. When a tall person wears straight leg jeans, the style complements the leg without making the person seem taller or shorter. They’re essentially the perfect jean for tall people.
For the Pear body types (with narrow shoulders, wider hips) this is their perfect jean. The cut and waist were designed to show off their curves. Apple body types (who have shoulders that are broader than their hips, fuller midsection), Hourglass body types (with balanced shoulders and hips and a a defined waist) and the rectangular or athletic body type (with all measurements are uniform), all look fantastic in this style of jean. One of the many reasons why the straight leg jean has been around for so long, is that it loves every body type. It was designed so that everyone could rock a great jean look.
Think of the plus size straight leg jean like the skinny jean’s cousin. Everything the skinny jean can do (stylewise), the straight leg jean can do, too.
Straight leg jeans come in a variety of colors, washes, and prints. These days you can find everything from plus size python printed straight leg jeans to floral, striped, or tie-dye straight leg jeans on the market.
When we talk about washes, we’re referring to both color and treatment of jeans. Choosing a light wash distressed jean or dark jean with bleached spots are different ways to personalize your denim collection using washes. The way you style your jean is the best reflection of your fashion personality.
These are the jeans that we all grew up in, so styling them is a snap. Wear them with your favorite tee, you’ve got the weekend look in a flash. Try them with a sweatshirt and sneakers and now you’re rocking the athleisurewear trend. Wear dark straight leg jeans to work by wearing either a blouse or button up shirt, and top it off with either a blazer or long cardigan. For a night out, add a halter top, heels and a sparkly bag, and you’re ready to go.
