Bootcut and straight leg jeans, particularly in light washes, used to be reserved for busy moms. However, these days the trend is dominating the fashion world and can be spotted on runways and college campuses.
Since they were once seen as frumpy, you might think these jeans would be hard to pull off. However, all it really takes is confidence and knowing you look cute in them! As a proud owner of a couple pairs myself, I can attest: These jeans are super comfortable and can be dressed up or down.
Today, I’m sharing three ways to style a pair of straight leg jeans from H&M. This is the perfect way to try the trend as these jeans are on sale for under $20! You have nothing to lose, so try this trend today.
