Styling Straight-Leg Jeans & Pants

Hey, did ya hear? Looser-fit jeans and pants are *finally* having their moment – and we’re so ready for it. Whether you’re looking for a little extra space, or you’re ready to rock the ultra-baggy Y2K aesthetic, we’ve got you covered with new straight-leg jeans & pants.

Get ready to refresh your jeans drawer with a much-needed dose of R&R (roomy & relaxed). 

Strigid Highest Waist Baggy Straight Jean

“Wait, what does ‘strigid’ mean?” We’re glad you asked! Strigid fabric is our latest innovation in denim: rigid in the front, stretchy in the back, and magic all over. The 50/50 construction gives you the best of both worlds, combining comfy stretch and an authentic denim feel.

The Highest Waist Baggy Straight Jean gives you our highest 13” rise, an oh-so-roomy fit, and extra length for a stacked look. The rips add an instant-vintage vibe and pair perfectly with a casual cropped tee and sneakers.

Tip: size up one size for a slouchy, borrowed-from-the boys look, or two sizes for an exaggerated baggy look. You can also read our baggy jeans style blog for more inspo!

Stretch High-Waisted Straight Leg Carpenter Pant

Not quite a jean, not quite a cargo… the Carpenter Pant sits in the middle with a mid-weight structured fabric and utility-inspired pockets. The Stretch High-Waisted Straight Leg has a high-rise silhouette, a relaxed fit through the thigh, and juuust enough flexibility to keep things comfy.

When it comes to styling these straight leg pants, cropped tops are your friend – we’re loving how Strappy Keyhole Camis adds a bright, colorful contrast to Carpenter Pants’ neutral hues. Just add your fave sneakers and you’re ready to go!

Stretch Cargo Straight Pant

Wanna go all-in on the utility trend? Let’s (car)go! Just like the Carpenter Pant, the Stretch Cargo Straight Pant has a high rise, relaxed thigh, and fit that’s straight outta the ’90s. You also get rugged utility details, oversized pockets, and a rich garment wash in earthy tones we *love.* 

These versatile cargos can be dressed up or down – it’s totally up to you. For an everyday casual outfit, layer with a zip-up hoodie and cropped denim jacket. Then, add your comfiest sneakers or embrace the workwear vibes with rugged lace-up boots.

AirFlex+ Slim Straight-Leg Jean

Don’t think we forgot about the boys! There’s plenty of options for guys who want to think outside the skinny fit, starting with the AirFlex+ Slim Straight Jean. AirFlex+ is our high-stretch fabric: an authentic denim look with serious flexibility that won’t lose its shape. The fit is straight through the thigh and slim through the leg for an easy, timeless look. 

We’re not exaggerating when we say straight jeans go with aaaanything… but if we had to choose, we’d add a graphic hoodie and classic white sneakers.

AirFlex+ Athletic Straight-Leg Jean

Guys, let’s talk about your thighs (did that sound weird?). If regular straight fit jeans make your legs feel claustrophobic, Athletic Straight jeans have the space you need. These jeans take the classic straight fit and add more room in the thigh for *maximum* comfort. 

Medium-wash Athletic Fit jeans are a staple you can wear with almost any look! Dress ’em up a bit with a button-up shirt or keep it comfy with a graphic hoodie.
