3 Non- Skinny Jean Favorites

Today I’m talking all about non-skinny jeans and my hunt to find the perfect straight leg pair for fall + winter. 

Have you jumped on the non-skinny jean trend yet? 

I’m not giving up my skinnies quite yet but looking to branch out a tad. 

Straight leg jeans seem a good place to dip my toe in (you know, not committing to the full 90s flares quite yet). My biggest concern was length because, while you can get anything hemmed, I know I probably wont. I was looking for something I can dress up and down but mostly wear for day to day (errands, school pick-up, park dates, dinner with girlfriends). 

Here are all the details from the instagram denim try on. I was on the hunt for a great pair of non-skinny jeans that would work on me at 5’4″. 

Levis 501 Crops

Medium wash, great cropped length! Non-stretch denim that get more comfortable with each wear. Keeping these ones! They are a great versatile jean that you can dress up for down (and a better price point than the Agolde pairs). 

Riley Crop Jeans in Blur

Agolde is one my favorite denim brands and the Riley did not disappoint! 

I really like this wash (a good transitional wash out of summer that can be worn all year) and the lack of distressing. They feel a bit big (and I sized down here). This is my first time wearing non-stretch denim but if you’re used to stretch, go one full size down (I wear a 25 in the Sophie high rise crop and these are the 24s) . 

Rileys High Rise Crop Jeans in Frequency  My favorite pair from the haul but too big. 

If you like the look but want a pair at a better price point, these are the Amazon jeans I’ve been wearing all summer. Under $50 and come in a couple of washes. 

Levis Wedgie Straight Jeans – These were fine but I ordered my regular size and they run big. I didn’t photograph these.

  1. Forgive me, but I went to your site for Shein reviews. I didn’t find much besides clothing reviews, which are great but where can I find your review of Shein itself??

    1. Hi Wendy,
      Thanks for reaching out. When you say a review of “Shein itself,” what do you mean? Are you looking for a review of their business practices? Production? Customer service?


  2. So happy with these, they’re fab! Lovely quality, true to size and fit perfectly. Definitely will buy more of this brand.
