While skinny jeans will forever remain a fashion staple, straight leg jeans (and middle parts) are the latest trend du-jour. And if you ask the French, they've always been the ultimate symbol of elegance. Whether you prefer a vintage-inspired fit or something with a little give, they're easy to wear and will accompany you throughout the day without constricting your blood flow, making them a staple piece worthy of real estate in your closet. 

To make the overwhelming task of denim shopping a bit easier, we've compiled our favorite straight leg jean options from brands across the board, with a focus on eco-friendly options (aka raw denim and naturally dyed styles).
