Types of Jeans

You wear them all the time, so why not learn more about all the cuts and silhouettes? And even if you think you know all the types of jeans, it's still fun to shop more! There are so many styles that can lead to heated discussions. Are you a team high rise or low rise? Team cropped or long? Team skinny or wide leg? Honestly, you're more likely to be on Team Sweatpants these days, but you get the point.

Jeans have been around for more than a century (to be exact, they were invented in 1873, thanks to Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis), and of course there have been countless variations of the pants since then, some more controversial than others. But if you really love all pants equally - yes, even the low-waisted ones - then you should keep scrolling to get some new ones. Here are 20 different styles for women that you should definitely add to your already overflowing jeans drawer. And if you're craving even more, check out this roundup of the best denim jackets to buy. And if you're into the Canadian tuxedo look, check out these matching denim jackets.

1: PET-JEANS

Skinny jeans with button fly

MADEWELL

Skinny jeans are known for their figure-hugging silhouette - the tight fit starts at the waist and extends to the ankle. Most are stretchy, so you can tuck your ankles into the tight leg openings more easily. They come in different washes and heights depending on your preference, but these from Madewell are one of the brand's best-rated and most comfortable jeans.

2: SKINNY CROP JEANS

Sophie High Rise Skinny Crop

MCLABELS Jeans

Similar to the skinnies, but shorter! This shorter version gives your ankles a little more wiggle room and looks stunning with high boots or flats. Use MCLABELS Promo Code to get upto 50% discount on their sale. Opt for a raw hem, like on these AGOLDE jeans, or a regular hem for a dressier look.

3: CIGARETTE JEANS

The Authentic Stretch High-Rise Cigarette

EVERLANE

These jeans are not quite as tight, but not quite as straight either. They are usually tight at the thighs and a little looser at the calves. They often end just an inch or two above the ankle. Pair them with mules or loafers for a casual look, or with lace-up sandals for a dressier look. This pair from Everlane has more than 1,800 reviews and a rating of 4.59 out of 5 stars.

4: STRAIGHT JEANS

Good Straight

GOOD AMERICAN

This style is similar to cigarette jeans, except they usually go above the ankles. They come in a variety of washes and waist sizes, but if you prefer more of a retro look, opt for high-waisted jeans like these from Good American.

5: CROPPED JEANS WITH WIDE-LEG

Hepburn Petite Wide-Leg with High Waistband

DL1961

This cut has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is usually high waisted, has a wide leg cut, and is cropped from mid-shin or below. If you are looking for pants that feel breezy and look cool with sneakers or sandals, these pants are your first choice.

6: WIDE-LEG JEANS

ELOQUII

Don't like shorts, but still like the eye-catching look of wide legs? Then these jeans are just for you. They look especially sophisticated in darker washes and belted at the waist, like these from Eloquii, but can also be worn in lighter washes with sandals and a tee. see brand shirts

7: RELAXED JEANS

Originals Loose Distressed High-Rise Straight-leg

RE/DONE

NOW 40% OFF

Similar to straight-leg pants but with an all-around loose fit, these aren't as restrictive and can easily be dressed up or down. Opt for used-look details like these from Re/Done for an even more relaxed look.

8: HIGH-RISE JEANS

Ribcage Straight Ankle Jean

LEVI'S

These jeans have nothing in common with the "mom" jeans of the 80s anymore. High waisted cuts are back in fashion and more fashionable than ever. They pair perfectly with all your crop tops and sweaters, as they sit just above the belly button. (Or in some cases, higher or lower, depending on the length of your torso.) This "ribcage" model from Levi's is one of the brand's most popular pairs.

9: LOW RISE JEANS

Dre Low Rise Slim Boyfriend

RAG & BONE

NOW 36% OFF

While high-waisted jeans seem to have fallen off the face of the earth, low-rise jeans haven't completely disappeared - in fact, they're making their way back into fashion. This silhouette has a button-and-zip fly just above the hip, in case you don't like jeans that go even higher.

10: BOYFRIEND JEANS

Le Beau Ankle Straight Leg Boyfriend Jeans

FRAME

These jeans are insanely comfortable thanks to their slightly wide fit. Many are cuffed at the hem, but you can also turn them inside out for better ankle coverage. The ultimate casual-chic jean style - especially when worn with loafers or sneaks.

11: BOOTCUT JEANS

The slim bootcut jeans

WARP + WEFT

Bootcut jeans are slightly flared from the knees and are called that because, of course, they are often worn with boots. They typically have longer pant legs and in these cases look best with high-heeled shoes so the pants don't graze the floor.

12: FLARED JEANS

High cut skinny jeans

LEE

Also known as "flared jeans." This silhouette is similar to bootcut jeans, except that the bulge is a bit more exaggerated. Popular in the 70s, the bohemian style is currently making a comeback on the runways and in real life. These Lee jeans have a near perfect 5 star rating and are available in a total of 1o prints and washes.
