Even as a fashion writer who aims to know about every fashion trend, it can be a bit challenging to keep my finger on the pulse of what’s cool and relevant when it comes to denim. Are skinny jeans in or out? Do people still like mom jeans? And what’s the deal with bootcut? The one silhouette that doesn’t keep me guessing, though, is the straight-leg jean. Not too skinny, not too wide, just that perfect, in-between silhouette that never goes out of style. Which is why the Lee Monroe Straight Leg Jeans have made me sit up and take notice.
Designed in a stretchy 81 percent cotton denim that creates a comfortable yet slimming silhouette, the Monroe Straight Leg Jeans have a relaxed fit through the hip and thigh, high rise, and a classic five-pocket styling. Six different washes are available, from a light dove gray to rich navy and classic black. As someone who’s curvy and five-feet tall, I also appreciate that they come in sizes 4 to 18 with short, regular, and long inseams. Plus, they’re on sale for over 50 percent off right now, clocking in at just $18 on Amazon — which is enough reason on its own to give them a try.
If you’re like me and depend on customer reviews when shopping online, these Lee jeans should make you smile — that’s because they have more than 13,000 five-star ratings on Amazon. Shoppers of all ages point to their comfort and fit, with one 60-something shopper who said they “fit like a glove” and another reviewer that raved they “slide on like Cinderella’s glass slipper.”
Shoppers even love these jeans so much, they’re buying multiple pairs. “I ended up getting rid of several pairs of jeans and ordered three more pairs of these to replace them in various colors,” wrote one shopper who called them “the best jeans ever.” Another person concurred, and said they liked their first pair so much, they bought five more.
And then, of course, is the review that takes the cake: An 87-year-old shopper that said the Lee jeans make them look 50. They raved that the jeans are “young-looking” and so comfortable they wish they “could go to sleep with them.” “I love that I can wear them nowadays everywhere, even to the White House if anybody would invite me,” they said. How could you not want to try them out after that?
As someone who’s constantly searching for the jeans to end all jeans, the Lee Monroe Straight Leg Jeans are a definite contender. And since they’re on sale for just $18 at Amazon, there’s no better time to snap up a pair — or six.
