Q. I have read over and over again that straight leg style jeans (without whiskering) are the most flattering jeans for most figures. I’m having a difficult time identifying a true straight leg jean, one that goes straight down from the widest part of the hip and does not taper. All the straight leg styles look skinny or tapered, which I don’t think would flatter my curves. Can you recommend a true straight leg jean!
A. Straight leg jeans can be flattering, but it is often said that a bootcut jean is the most flattering jean. However, a straight leg offers a fine balance between bootleg and skinnies, offering a sleek look. If flattery is what you are after, a dark wash (yes, without whiskering or distressing) is your best option. I love my Levi’s Curve ID straight leg jeans – they are a true straight leg and are super flattering and comfortable. Even better, they offer custom curve fits based on your unique proportions.
