Our tip for finding the right skinny jeans for you? This cut begs for women’s black jeans or dark wash jeans that pair with essentially anything in your closet. Choose drapey tops that balance out the form-fitting legs, and don’t forget a jean jacket or cardigan in case it gets chilly.
Does your next vacation call for you to pull on all of your favorite pairs of boots and booties? Then boot-cut jeans will be your best friend on your next getaway. This classic style is great for any body type, and it will make you look like you have legs for days. They’ll keep you comfy and fashionable horseback riding on the beach or bike riding on the Seine. Just add a chunky belt for ultimate laid-back vibes.
Our tip for finding the perfect boot-cut jeans? Consider the length and wash, above all else. The hem should hit you right below the ankle, and the wash should be a medium tone. Don’t forget to pair them with boots with heels if you’re on the shorter side. If you’ve got curves and you’re ready to show them off, opt for curvy fit jeans with a boot cut.
You’ll be on-trend and oh so comfy in a pair of straight-leg jeans as you’re jet setting or road tripping. Is there anything more fun than a bucket hat, boxy crop top, and cuffed straight-leg jeans in your vacation photos? We certainly can’t think of it. From the streets of Tokyo to the beaches of Belize, straight-leg jeans will accompany you on your next fashionable getaway.
Our tip for styling straight-leg jeans? These jeans are a nod to the '90s, and you should pay homage to the era that brought them to popularity with a bright blue or light wash and a form-fitting white tee and sneakers. It’ll be perfect for a river cruise, a bus tour, or a brewery tour. Even if you’re just wandering around discovering new sights, your straight-leg jeans will be your perfect outfit maker.
You can’t go wrong with wide-leg jeans, a vintage-meets-modern style. You’ll exude an effortlessly chic appearance as soon as you step out of the plane, train, boat, or car at your destination. Try these jeans in a variety of colors, from classic denim to light pink to olive green or mustard. You’ll want to pair them with a button-up blouse, cinched and knotted at the waist, or a tucked-in silk camisole.
Our tip for finding wide-leg jeans great for your body type? If you’re on the shorter side, opt for a cropped leg that hits at the calf. Or, if you’re ready for the drama of full-length legs, pair them with platform clogs and round sunglasses for a throwback to the '70s.
Whatever style you choose, we recommend high-rise jeans for your next vacation. They’ll look amazing, and they’ll be super comfortable while you’re trying amazing new cuisines, strolling down foreign avenues, or simply people-watching at a sidewalk café.
