Lucky Brand 221 Original Straight Leg Jeans

September 27, 2017 | by Scott

The skinny jean is over. Many people are now trading their skinny jeans in favor of a slightly more comfortable, yet still flattering cut – the straight leg jean. If you’re stuck for how to wear them, or unsure whether they’re right for you, you’ve come to the right place.

The Specs

Lucky Brand jeans are good quality, that much cannot be denied. Going since 1990, Lucky Brand has been providing the United States with great denim for nearly 30 years.

These Lucky Brand 221 original straight leg jeans are a modern classic. Subtle yet stylish, there’s not really anywhere these jeans can’t be worn. Here are some of our favorite details:

  • Five pockets, meaning you will have a place for everything.

  • Zip fly with a button enclosure so you won’t have to do the awkward fly zip up in public.

  • 100% cotton for a soft, comfortable fit.

  • Slight fading on the denim, so they don’t look too polished.

Why We Love Them

These jeans are so comfortable, we want a pair for every day of the week. They fit exactly true to size so you won’t have to guess what size may fit you or judge it by the pair that the model is wearing.

The color is a classic denim blue, so there is no outfit they can’t be worn with, making them incredibly versatile. The straight leg style is flattering for all shapes and sizes, so don’t be put off if you think you’re larger or smaller than the average. These will look good on you regardless!

One Disadvantage

The only problem is that the inseam ranges from 30” to 36.” While this is ideal for the vast majority of the population, there are men out there who are shorter or taller. Having a bigger range of inseam sizes would solve this problem and make them completely perfect.

Where Do You Get Them?

Nordstrom Rack offers the lowest price on these jeans. If you were to go to Lucky Brand, you would pay, at minimum, $99. At Nordstrom Rack, these jeans are under $40 which is a steal considering how much wear you will get out of them. The jeans sell out fast but come back in stock almost weekly.

Nordstrom Rack also ships between 1-3 days with the option to upgrade your shipping method at checkout. This is an excellent choice if you can’t wait to get your hands on them. They also have a 90-return policy, so even if you aren’t pleased with them, you can return them swiftly.

Styling Your Lucky Brand 221 Original Straight Leg Jeans

Because straight leg jeans are such a classic, they really can be worn with anything. Try pairing them with sneakers and a simple, plain t-shirt for an everyday look.

Another option is a button-down shirt (untucked, obviously) if you want to look a bit dressier while keeping your outfit casual.

These jeans also look good with jumpers, coats, and scarves – perfect for the upcoming cold season! Top it off with some Timberlands to really complete the winter look.
