Slouchy straight leg jeans have been a thing among the denim connoisseur ladies for quite some time now. I remember the first pair of this kind I fell in love with were the RE/DONE | Levi’s Loose Fit Jeans – a pair of reworked Levi’s 505. And that was about 2 years ago (image below).
This style sits snug at the waist and hips, features a higher rise and wider cut straight legs. And it’s all about being longer, even over-long, and not ankle length or cropped.
Think of them as fitted on your bod and slouchy-baggy at the legs. Unisex jeans, or gender neutral loose fit jeans, are another way to achieve this look (scroll down for some rad options).
Generally these jeans are made of 100% cotton denim that can be rigid and raw as well as treated and soft. Some brands may add about 1% or 2% of stretch to make the jeans even softer. And that’s ok too.
We’re going to see this trend a lot in the coming colder season. Find out about some great options that you can buy right now online and in stores. Wear them now with your favorite sneakers, and later with a pair of Dr. Martens or cowboy boots.
And when you shop for these jeans, do not size up, unless the brand states that the jeans run small. Because 100% cotton denim tends to give quite a bit and you don’t want the jeans to look too baggy, but rather slouchy-edgy.
