Structured, Straight-Leg Jeans Are The Most Timeless Trend For Fall 2023

There are some items in our wardrobe that we find ourselves grabbing constantly. One of these is a great pair of jeans. While the material often stays the same, the styles of jeans on the market are constantly changing. This season, many seem to be taking the "quiet luxury" approach to their jeans, choosing a timeless fit for their fall wardrobes.

Gen-Z has informed us that skinny jeans are dead, but the baggy jeans many people are replacing them with are not always a great option for our favorite outfits. Luckily, straight-leg jeans are here to save the day. "Straight-leg jeans are a more flattering and modern denim fit, as we move away from skin-tight dressing to a more relaxed feel," fashion editor and stylist Antonia Kraskowski tells Woman & Home.

Straight-leg jeans are fitted through the waist and thighs and begin to taper straight down after the knee. These are perfect to wear with all of your put-together yet casual looks that you may have previously worn with skinny jeans. Whether for the office or the grocery store, you need straight-leg jeans in your closet this fall.

A classic sweater and ankle boots look

Straight-leg jeans paired with a sweater and ankle boots are the no-fail formula for an amazing fall outfit. Our favorite oversized sweaters pair just as well with straight-leg jeans as they do our skinny jeans. Not to mention, our ankle boots look even better with straight-leg denim. The hem allows for our ankle boots to have their shining moment without our denim being pushed into them.

Denim on denim style

Double denim is a trending look for this fall that is sure to turn heads. We love pairing our favorite straight-leg blue jeans with a blue jean jacket. Style the look with minimal gold accessories, heels, and a chic designer bag to take your "Canadian tuxedo" look to the next level.

Heels to dress up the look

To create fashion-forward contrast in your look, try pairing your straight-leg jeans with high heels. Pairing the same look with sneakers can give the overall outfit a casual appeal, whereas the heels will leave you looking prepped and ready for a night on the town.

Business casual

Straight-leg jeans without holes or frays are one of the easiest styles to elevate for the office. Unlike other jean styles, straight-leg jeans are tailored much like trousers. To create a business casual look with your straight-leg jeans, style them with a blazer and loafers. Top off the look with a fashion-forward bag and gold jewelry.

The clean girl look

If you want to keep up with the "clean girl" trend in the fall season, a pair of polished straight-leg jeans will be essential. Straight-leg denim is crisp, unlike baggy denim, and pairs well with other favorites of the clean girl aesthetic. For the ultimate clean girl look, try pairing your straight-leg denim with a tight neutral-colored top, sleek jewelry, and minimal heels.

Go for grunge with pops of leather

If you are looking to capture the chaotic "star girl" aesthetic, try pairing a leather jacket with your straight-leg jeans. This look will help you channel your inner celebrity. The look is grunge at its core, but the tailored jeans give the outfit a put-together feel.
