With their timeless silhouette and endless styling possibilities, straight leg jeans are a must-have staple for anyone looking to elevate their everyday look. Whether you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe or you’re simply seeking new style inspiration, I’ve got you covered on how to wear straight leg jeans.

The best part about straight leg jeans is that no matter your personal style, there’s a straight leg jeans outfit for literally every single occasion (okay, maybe not weddings but still). From casual weekends to polished office attire, below are eight of my favorite straight leg jean looks to give you some inspo.

How to Style Straight Leg Jeans

Straight Leg Jeans with Ivory Slingbacks

For a feminine look, I love this sweet multicolor sweater tank paired with these classic straight leg jeans. Style them with some leather ivory slingbacks and this pink beaded bag for a pop of color. Finish off the look with a dainty gold watch and you have yourself the perfect girly outfit for spring, whether you’re hosting happy hour or going to dinner.

Straight Leg Jeans with Metallic Accents

This one would be so great for a transitional work to dinner outfit. The black straight leg jeans with the unique forward seams and this timeless black and white buttoned jacket are professional enough for a day in the office. Of course, we can’t forget a classic black leather belt to tie it together.

Then, add a pop of metallics with this silver shoulder bag and these little silver heels for a look thats ready to hit the town. I’m loving the mixing of silver and gold here!

Straight Leg Jeans with Sneakers

If you’re in the market for a more casual look, you can always style these mid-rise straight leg jeans with a good pair of sneakers–I especially like these sneakers with suede detailing. Add a tank, like this pretty blue one, with the darker contrast trim under a white tweed bomber jacket. For the final touch, I am loving this corduroy baseball cap. And just like that, you have yourself the cutest fit for a Sunday of brunch or errands.

White Straight Leg Jeans with a Striped Sweater

White jeans season is right around the corner and I cannot wait to wear these high rise white straight leg jeans. I love an all white moment, but I wanted to add a little something to this one with the striped sweater and the denim heeled mules. These oval brown sunglasses pair so well with this white look and you can never go wrong with adding a good belt–I think this white leather one is perfect to complete the look.

Brown Straight Leg Jeans with a Leather Blazer

These brown straight leg jeans would look adorable paired with all black everything. Honestly, I’m almost positive this black leather blazer was meant to be paired with a look like this. Add a classic pair of black leather booties with a small heel, a round pair of black sunglasses, and a staple leather shoulder bag for the chicest date night look. Finish it off with some chunky gold jewelry, like these gold crossover earrings.

Straight Leg Jeans with a Collared Sweater

I’m obsessed with the wash of these straight leg jeans. I’d pair them with these white leather loafers and this collared sweater, which are two more pieces that seem to be made for each other! These three staples styled with some rectangle sunglasses and an ivory bag make for a timeless outfit you can basically wear to any and every occasion.

Straight Leg Jeans with Suede Mules

I think we all know you can’t go wrong with a classic white button down, but the silky fabric of this one paired with these black straight leg jeans is just really doing it for me. These dreamy suede heeled mules (in brown) would be so luxe styled with these elevated basics. Just throw on a silver buckle belt and some shiny statement earrings to complete the vibe.

Straight Leg Jeans with Sporty Sandals

Going with a casual outfit doesn’t mean you can’t look cute. Style these affordable straight leg jeans with this long sleeved striped tee (which you’re guaranteed to get wear out of all year long.) I’m loving this duo paired with some chunky leather sandals, a white pair of sunglasses, and a classic navy blue baseball hat. I would be a proud outfit repeater in this look for sure.
