3 Ways to Wear

Straight-leg jeans are becoming the on-trend choice – but how do you style them? From smart to casual, we have you covered


Straight-leg jean outfits for work

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 mac and you’re all set for a stylish autumn.

Styling straight-leg jeans for the weekend

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.

Dressing up straight-leg jeans

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 strappy heels and a black leather bag to elevate the look.
