18 Straight-Leg Jeans to Buy Now and Wear Forever

So according to Gen Z, skinny jeans and side parts are so last generation. If this has sent you into a tailspin, you're not alone. Now, we're believers that you should wear whatever you like, but if you're looking to expand your wardrobe, go with a pair of straight-leg jeans. You can choose a looser or tighter fit, they look good on pretty much everyone, and they're the perfect basic from which you can create your dream outfit. In our opinion, they're the most classic denim style, and one that will have a home in your closet for years to come.

Light washes, ripped styles, and even mom and dad jeans all make an appearance in our top 18 picks. Whether you prefer a rigid, vintage-inspired fit, or something with a little stretch and give, there's a pair for you. We found jeans under $50, as well as more luxury pairs that are completely worth the splurge. Plus, there's a jean that fits up to four sizes, and it just went to the top of our wish list. So, what are you waiting for? Grab these now, before they're gone!
