Move Over, Skinny Jeans — Straight & Relaxed Fits Are Here To Stay

When it comes to Korean denim, it’s no doubt the 2010’s were the decade of the skinny jean. Now, as we enter 2020, we’re seeing a resurgence of denim with wider legs, smaller waists, and straight/relaxed styles. Whether you call them “mom jeans”, “boyfriend jeans”, or anything else, relaxed and straight fit jeans have made their mark in the K-fashion world.

As the Korean fashion authority, we at the K-Blog are fully on board for this trend. Here, our top reasons why straight and relaxed-fit jeans are the ultimate fashion staple:


1. They’re oh, so comfortable

Who doesn’t love a comfortable pair of jeans? The wide-legged factor of straight and relaxed fit jeans makes them super comfy and perfect for everyday outfits.

2. They look good on everyone

Loose fit jeans — no matter if they’re straight or relaxed fits — are ultra-flattering on anyone regardless of body type, gender, or personal style. The fitted waist and long leg effect make you look taller, sleeker, and like any outfit you wear is put together.

For a comfy look, pair a loose-fit pair of jeans with a baggy top or sweater. For dramatic waist definition, pair your jeans with a tucked-in fitted tee.


3. They’re perfect for day-to-night

While denim is always a moment RE: casual days out and fun nights, the trouser-like effect of straight makes them perfect for business casual looks.

Best Jeans for Every Body Type

Finding the perfect jeans may be a challenge. The secret? It’s all about the right fit for your body shape. To make things easier for you, our style experts, rounded up the best styles for every silhouette. Here’s what to keep in mind next time you shop for denim:
Double Semi Pants
If you are petite, go for high-waisted flared jeans in dark shades because they give the illusion of height and elongate the legs instantly. A cropped style is another great option as long as you team it with high heels. Peruse through our Korean and American fashion brands for the latest denim styles as there are lots of them waiting to be channelled.
Feeling Hem Vintage Denim Skinny
To enhance an hourglass figure, curvy ladies should choose slim cut jeans in solid colors (faded shades will thicken the legs) with a mid-high rise. You can also roll the hems up to add width and balance larger hips.
Picky High Waist Straight Pants
Tall women can really struggle to find the right length. Luckily, many brands have their own tall range nowadays, so look for extra-long jeans that flare out at the knee to create the right proportion. If your aim is to break up some length, opt for faded or cropped styles.
Over Wide Jeans
Should you want to enhance a smooth backside, opt for jeans with large back pockets or hip-hugging styles with a high waist that provide extra coverage for a curvier derriere.
LA Patch Jeans
Pear-shaped silhouettes (larger on the bottom) seek classic straight leg jeans with a good amount of stretch and a high waist that will flatten a round stomach.
Style Bootcut Pants
For large thighs the key is a pair of super-stretchy flared jeans that will even out flawlessly the discrepancy between a tiny waist and muscular thighs.
