Can Gen Z manage to abolish skinny jeans entirely? As the Millennial fashionistas fight to keep the skinny jeans tugged into the booty look around... as soon as you put on the perfect pair of straight leg jeans no one can deny how much better they are for the figure! Lets not forget the memories we had in our favorite skinny jeans outfits but I will be erasing the way I looked in them from my mind.
The skinny jean had its moments but it is time to say goodbye. Here are the alternatives that are more flattering and fashionable for every body type.
“I WANT TO DIE WITH MY BLUE JEANS ON”
- Andy Warhol
The Zara jeans also known as the TikTok and influencer "must have" is the perfect wide leg jean to make all legs look 10 miles long. I have seen these jeans look flattering on many body types but it can be a struggle for the right size. For my curvy ladies I recommend sizing up because the fabric has no stretch around the hips. For my short girls don't let the length fool you they end in a raw hem that allows you to pick up your kitchen scissors and cut it to your desired length with the same look.
We should not be sleeping on Gap and especially not on these jeans. The Gap high rise cheeky straight jean are my favorite jeans I own. I would recommend sizing down because they do have a lot of stretch. They are super high rise and look great for a night out or with a white tee for errands.
AGOLDE Criss Cross Jeans, $218
The AGOLDE Criss Cross jeans in my book are a necessary splurge for the perfect funky white leg jean. I recommend sizing down in these because they stretch after a few washes and are more flattering when they aren't gaping around the criss cross area. AGOLDE jeans are also known to last forever and these will become a perfect staple in your closet.
I needed to include my three favorite Reformation jeans. I would recommend sizing up in the Georgia and Cynthia because they are rigid with little give. The Emma jeans i would say fit true to size with a little give. I find Reformation jeans to always be slightly rigid but once you find your perfect size they give the body the perfect shape!
These are my go to jeans for running errands and the classic I'm not trying, trying outfit. I recommend sizing down because after one wear they tend to stretch out a size. There are 10 colors available in these jeans and I struggle with not wanting to buy every shade. They are extremely figure flattering and are avaible in curvy.
These jeans guarantee LEGS FOR DAYS. The Firecracker Jeans are the perfect modern twist on the famous bell bottom and are a sure way to stand out in a crowd. I recommend ordering your normal size. They are extremely flatter and whenever I wear them I always get compliments.
I had to include this in my jean post because these pins have changed so many pairs of jeans I own. My biggest struggle with finding the perfect jean is finding a pair where the waist doesn't gape in the back. These buttons have been a life saver and helps avoiding the tailor for every pair of jean. The buttons are super easy by clipping it to your desired width and giving you that "snatched" waist.
