We’ve got you covered on how to wear straight-leg jeans – the on-trend trouser choice whether you’re going smart or casual
Return-to-the-office style is bound to look quite different from our pre-pandemic workwear, with an increasing focus on smart-casual dressing. Unless you work in a very formal environment, jeans in the office are commonplace these days, and look great teamed with a simple shirt and black loafers. Add a chic trench coat and you’re all set for a stylish autumn.
One of the great benefits of these straight-leg jeans is how hardwearing they are – ideal whether you’re finding ways to entertain the kids or walking the dog through country lanes. Whereas skinny jeans tend to look best balanced out by looser tops, with straight-leg jeans you can tuck in a T-shirt to add definition to your silhouette.
Jeans and a nice top: it’s been a sartorial favourite for decades, offering the perfect ‘dressy, but not too dressy’ vibe for smart lunches, boozy brunches and evenings out. You can’t beat a pretty blouse tucked into straight-leg jeans – just choose high-waisted denim to ensure the silhouette remains on point. Add heels and a black leather bag to elevate the look.
