Finding The Best Non-Skinny Jeans

Jeans are so confusing right now. I have a closet full of skinny jeans, but I know they’re starting to look dated (ok, ok, maybe that’s been happening for a while, but I’ve been in straight denial about it). I do love my boyfriend jeans and skinny-straight jeans, and I have done a bunch of posts on mom jeans, but I have yet to venture into the ’90s/dad/loose/straight leg style that’s everywhere these days.

4 Pairs Of Straight Leg Jeans That Work With Curves

I’ve been digging my heel in on this particular jean trend because I’m curvy…even more so after having kids, so those baggier jeans we wore in the ’90s with the straight legs just sound awful. BUT, lucky for me, I’ve found a number of jeans that check the boxes of both on-trend and flattering: straight leg options that also work with curves.

MOTHER The Tripper Jeans

I've been digging my heels in on this denim trend because I'm curvy. But these jeans are both on-trend + flattering: straight leg jeans that work with curves.

Ahh, MOTHER denim…this is why we love you! These felt tight when I first put them on due to the “semi-rigid” denim, but after wearing them for a bit, they started to feel like they were specially made to fit me. These have a button fly, which I usually don’t like, but in this case, it worked — it didn’t make the fly stick out at all. Also — MOTHER denim, what do you do that makes BUTTS look so much better than other jeans?? I would keep them for that reason alone! ๐Ÿ˜‚

DAZE Sundaze Ripped High Waist Dad Jeans

I've been digging my heels in on this denim trend because I'm curvy. But these jeans are both on-trend + flattering: straight leg jeans that work with curves.

These were comfortable from the second I put them on. They define my waist, don’t squeeze my booty too much, and are seriously soft for being 99% cotton (1% elastane for a hint of stretch!). The price tag was a surprise because I expected these to be much more expensive than they were just based on how they felt…oh and they’re eco-friendly, too! I loved these SO much that I bought another pair from DAZE (that were just as awesome)…it looks like I have a new favorite denim brand!

AGOLDE Wilder Ripped Straight Leg Jeans

I've been digging my heels in on this denim trend because I'm curvy. But these jeans are both on-trend + flattering: straight leg jeans that work with curves.

I loved these AGOLDE Wilder Ripped Straight Leg Jeans, but I was obviously having some issues with the length…now I’m only 5’4″, so this is a typical issue for me. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to cut them or roll them, but looking at these pictures now I think cutting would be the way to go. The best part about the fit of these was the no-gap waistband…it fit perfectly around my waist without any pulling across the bum or hips. These are made from rigid denim, but aren’t stiff and the wash and distressing are perfection. (Also…I now know I was saying AGOLDE wrong in the video…A-gold-ee. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ)

MOTHER High-Waisted Utility Jeans

I've been digging my heels in on this denim trend because I'm curvy. But these jeans are both on-trend + flattering: straight leg jeans that work with curves.

I expected these MOTHER High-Waisted Utility Jeans to be SOOOO long on me given what they looked like on the model, but I think these run small. The 28s (my regular size) were too tight…and made the pockets stick out awkwardly. I think if I wanted them to be baggy like the model, I’d have to size up at least two sizes. The hammer loop reminded me of high school…but that booty has definitely grown since then. ๐Ÿ˜‚ These might be great on someone a little less curvy?

VIGOSS Frankie Distressed High Waist Crop Slim Straight Leg Jeans

Well, that’s a mouthful. But I suppose you know exactly what you’re getting with a name like VIGOSS Frankie Distressed High Waist Crop Slim Straight Leg Jeans. The distressing on the waistband and back pockets are my favorite part, and I liked these when I first put them on, but, looking at these pictures now, the wash does seem a bit aggressive. I mean, this is exactly the kind of wash I would have LOVED in the early 2000s…but wait, is that the point? Like I think I feel the same way my mom did when bell bottoms first came back around after the ’70s…whyyyyy? (But…bell bottoms are AWESOME. I mean, that just makes sense.) ๐Ÿ˜‚
