Straight-leg jeans are back in full force this year. Especially tighter jeans than the wide-leg jeans that have been hyped for years are becoming increasingly popular: really long legs, skinny jeans, and straight jeans without wide cuts.

What do you think of this trend? There are always heated debates about this on TikTok – feel free to let us know in the comments below the blog article.

I have to say I’m in two minds – on the one hand I love my wide jeans, simply because they are so comfortable and universal. On the other hand, I think straight-leg jeans are way more elegant and simply look timelessly chic. So I can understand why we’re going back to them, but it’s literally going to be an uncomfortable transition.

Karl Lagerfeld was right when he made Chanel famous with tweed jackets. They simply always look great. And when I say always, I mean always. They are so classically beautiful and look super elegant.
