The best straight-leg jeans to shop now - including Kate Middleton's favourite off-duty pair

Straight-leg jeans are a super stylish option, just ask Duchess Kate...

If you’re a millennial, you probably spent over a decade squeezing into skinny jeans, but the style these days? Loose fit, flared or even ultra baggy denim. While we’re all about wearing whatever we want, consider the sweet spot between the two - straight-leg jeans.

A slimmer fit than mom jeans but not as spray-on as skinnies, a good pair will be comfortable, flattering and go with almost everything in your wardrobe.
