The Different Fits of Denim
Looking for the perfect pair of jeans? All jeans are not created equal and you wear them all the time - so let's understand the cuts and silhouettes so that you can find the right fit for yourself.
Skinny jeans fit close and narrow to the leg. They were once a trend but have now transitioned into being a classic style and wardrobe essential. Brands like AllSaints and GAP carry a ton of skinny styles.
Slim jeans are similar to skinny jeans in that they are fitted but they have slightly more room throughout the leg. They're slim from hip to ankle and give off a smart, sleek look. Express, G-Star, and Banana Republic have some great slim jean options.
These are the ultimate everyday jeans - perfect for any occasion and easy to dress up and down. Straight jeans are straight through the hip, thigh, and leg and are a contemporary classic. Find straight-legged styled at Levi's, Everlane, and Old Navy.
Bootcut jeans are designed with a straight fit through the thigh and a slight flare from the knee to the ankle, making the jeans ideal for accommodating boots, hence the name. They're ideal for men with wider calves. Mavi, Lee, and Wrangler have some our of favorite bootcut jeans.
Stay comfortable and effortless with relaxed jeans. They're an easy fit from top to bottom that's relaxed through the knee, enhancing the comfort factor. Go-to brands for these jeans include Tommy Hilfiger and Silver Jeans.
J-shape is the new denim fit that is taking over. Literally cut in a J-shape, this new fit is suitable for people of all heights and elongates the legs through a natural stacking effect that happens from the new down. Shop the best J-shape styles at AKINGS.
