20 Different Types of Jeans for Men and Women


Jeans are an amazingly versatile article of clothing used by artists and cosplayers. Even though they were originally designed to be tough and sturdy, jeans continue to evolve with their wearers – becoming tighter, looser, more colorful, or more somber as trends shift. These jeans are the perfect choice for their new owners – and with the huge variety of styles available, the different styles of jeans are almost endless. The following are 20 different types of jeans for men and women, explaining what they are in detail so you can make a more informed decision when buying your next pair.

20. Stacked Jeans

This type of jean is made from vertically two or more layers of denim. It gives the wearer a slimmer, sleeker look than a traditional pair of jeans. According to Stylesatlife, They are very similar to riding pants, except they are worn without any pants underneath them, instead of wearing them over another clothing item. Another name for these jeans is 'jegging.' They are usually grey or black and worn with a belt. This could be it if you are looking for a more comfortable type of jeans.

19. Ripped and Repaired Jeans

This type of jeans is a definite example of fashion and comfort coming together. This style of jeans is usually in the dark, faded blue, very similar to the cuffed, ripped jeans. They are sometimes torn on purpose to give them their unique style. The holes might be small or large and cover the entire surface of the jeans. They can also be repaired with patches sewn on to hide all or most of the damage. If you are looking for comfort, style, and a selection of rips, you have no choice but to look into these jeans.

18. Cuffed Blue Jeans that

Cuffed jeans are, just as the name suggests, cut up to the ankles and have cuffs or a hem that extends past the ankle. They are usually very comfortable and look great paired with sneakers and a simple t-shirt. High-waters are another option – these jeans have a high waist and an ankle-length hem. They are usually worn casually or with workout attire. This jeans style is a recent addition to the fashion industry, and it's sure to catch on as a trendy item.

17. Cowboy Jeans

These jeans are made from denim but have a distinct western flair due to their color and design. They have a wide leg opening and many other characteristics that make these jeans trendy. They are usually worn with cowboy boots, a cowboy hat, and other western-style accessories. The color of these jeans can range from dark blue to black. To add an extra touch of 'cowboy,' some people choose to wear a belt with their jeans instead of using the normal waist button. If you're a fan of the western-style, then these are the jeans for you.

16. Stonewashed Jeans

These jeans are very similar to the distressed, faded jeans, except they are softer and have a more distressed look. They aren't cut in the same manner as many other jeans and have slightly faded. According to Looksgud, This is a more expensive option, but if you're looking for that, worn-in look without 'worning' your pants, stonewashed jeans will be the best option for you. They can have small holes in them, but not very large ones. If you're looking for that style that says you've worn your jeans a lot more than you have, this is the option.

15. Distressed Blue Jeans

This type of jeans is for the person who likes to be a bit more casual with their jeans but still wants to keep them classy and look stylish. They are very similar to ripped, repaired jeans, except that they don't have any tears or patches. According to Sewguide, The 'distressing' might consist of fading or fraying, which gives these jeans their distinct look. The variety of distressed jeans ranges from almost completely faded to only slightly faded. These jeans are worn with a simple t-shirt or any other casual attire.

14. Low Rise Jeans

As the name suggests, these jeans sit very low on the hips and have a more comfortable fit that doesn't break in your crotch or behind. Although they are more expensive, they are worth every cent you pay for them. They also have a better-looking leg, which is longer and has more style than other types of jeans. The only downside to these jeans is that they must be bought at specific places because of the cut and style of the leg area.

13. Regular Fit Jeans

Regular Fit jeans are slim and come in many different colors and styles. They are highly popular today as well and are regularly worn by women as well as men. These usually have a mid-rise style and vary in color depending on the jean manufacturer. They are very comfortable to wear, and they will look great with almost any type of pair of shoes you choose to wear with them. When buying them, you will want to choose the one that fits the most comfortably because this is what counts when buying any jeans. They are a very good value for your money. You can also buy them in various sizes, including Juniors and Women's.

12. Tapered Fit Jeans

These jeans resemble the traditional straight cut, except they are more tapered at the ankle. They have a slim fit, giving them a very simple look. These aren't extremely popular, but these jeans will match almost any type of clothing for someone who wants a more casual look. They are a bit more expensive than the regular straight cut, but they are worth it because of the simple look and comfortable feel.

11. Wrangler Jeans

The super sturdy and comfortable Wrangler jeans are a great choice, especially if you want a more relaxed and comfortable feel. They come in many different colors like black, blue, and white. They usually have a regular fit and are suitable for athletic and muscular body types. Made of 100% cotton, they are also very breathable, which is perfect for the summertime. You can wear them with a t-shirt or a button-down shirt.

10. Straight Leg Jeans

Straight-leg jeans fit slightly lower on the waist and are slightly looser on the hips. They usually feature a small gap along the waistband but do not sag or bag. They have the most room in the hips and thighs but may have a smaller waist than other jeans styles. The kind of rise that provides the most comfort is the rise that will flatter your body. Choosing a low-rise straight leg is best if you want a more natural fit with no gap. When you don’t want to show your hips, but you want to avoid a baggy crotch area, mid-rise straight-legged jeans are a perfect choice.

9. Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans are loose-fitting jeans that sit low on the waist, have loose legs, and feel extremely comfortable. These jeans are not very popular in the fashion world. Other than some trendy fashion bloggers wearing them, boyfriend jeans are hardly worn by anyone else. The boyfriend jeans are a good choice for women who want to wear more comfortable pants than skinny jeans. The boyfriend jeans fit somewhat baggy and are more adjustable than other styles and fits.

8. Slim Fit Jeans

Slim-fit jeans are quite popular amongst women. These jeans will sit at your natural waist, and the fabric will follow the contour of your body. According to Nymag, This kind of jeans usually has a very small waistband. When paired with a belt, they can look quite toned and slim. The best way to find your perfect slim-fit jean is to try on different brands of denim. Some will fit quite snug and are meant to be worn in a specific style. If you like a loose fit or are a bit sporty, the best way to get a perfect fit is to try on different brands of jeans.

7. Skinny Cut Jeans

Skinny-cut jeans are also referred to as skinny jeans. These jeans feature a smaller waist than the classic straight leg and are cropped at the ankle. They generally fit loosely, making them extremely comfortable and suitable for wearing leggings. The tight fit of the legs makes these pants look great with boots or heels, and they can be easily worn with a belt if you want. They sit lower on your waist than other styles, which is why young women commonly wear them. If you like to wear skinny jeans but aren’t comfortable with the tight-fitting look of these, you can choose a pair in a regular fit. The straight leg style tends to have a slightly tighter fit than skinny jeans and is, therefore, more comfortable for many women.

6. Flared Cut Jeans

Flared-cut jeans look great on hourglass and pear-shaped figures. The flared shape helps balance the hips and creates a more hourglass-like silhouette. If you have a pear-shaped figure, choose a pair of flared-cut jeans that are darker in color and have a smaller flare. This will help minimize the appearance of your hips. If you have an hourglass figure, you can choose a pair of jeans with a larger flare. The fabric of these jeans flares out from the hips, which makes them quite comfortable and loose on most women. They may have tight areas in the thighs if you have larger thighs, but for most women, they are a good choice for those who want to hide their thighs. Flared jeans are the best choice if you’re looking for a loose fit and do not want to wear leggings.

5. Bootcut Jeans

Bootcut jeans are a wide variation of straight jeans that became popular in the 1970s. The leg of bootcut jeans flares out at the ankle, giving the appearance of a boot cut. This style of jeans is designed to be worn with boots, hence the name. The cut of these pants is higher than that of the straight leg and sits at your natural waist. They are perfect for providing comfort and more coverage with ease. They may be tight on women with a bigger frame, but they usually fit quite comfortably for everyone else. You can easily wear these jeans with boots and look great in them. The bootcut jeans are made with heavy-weight denim, which makes them sturdy and long-lasting.

4. Loose Fit Jeans

Loose-fit jeans are relaxed, loose-fitting jeans that offer comfort. They usually have a drawstring around the waist and can come in different variations such as baggy, bootcut, or wide leg. They are the perfect choice for a casual look and are suitable for women who do not like skinny-fit jeans. Loose-fit jeans are also the best alternative to leggings when you want to wear something warm without exposing too much skin. When you plan to wear these jeans, you should choose a pair with a drawstring or loose-fit waist.

3. Mom Jeans

The Mom jeans are loose-fitting and generally worn by older women who want a comfortable fit. The fabric of these jeans is a lot thicker than other pants, the waist is often relatively high, the legs are baggy, and the butt area is large and flat. The crotch area is also quite long, so you can easily adjust the length of your pants. Although they are named after moms, they can be worn by all women who want to wear a loose-fitting pair of jeans.

2. Wide Leg Jeans

The wide-leg jeans feature a wide cut, often with a strap to hold them up at the waist, and are popular in the generation raised on the boob tube. These jeans are loose-fitting and sit lower on the waist than other jeans. Due to their wide cut, you should not wear these jeans with boots unless you own a shoe size of more than ten inches. They generally have holes to give you an even looser fit at the legs and some areas where pockets are thinned out.

1. High Rise Jeans

High-rise jeans are the tightest fitting of all the jeans styles. They sit at your natural waist and are cut higher than the front of the thigh. According to Wwd, These jeans may not be suitable for those who want a very low-cut style as they will show a lot of skin around your hips, but for those women who want to flaunt their curves, there is no better alternative than high-rise jeans. They are generally tighter than other styles but do not sag or bag. They can be worn with heels or boots to make your legs appear longer while still providing comfort.


There are styles of jeans we can all appreciate, but if you want to get the best fit, be sure to try on different brands of denim. A few brands may fit differently, and that’s the only thing important when choosing a pair of jeans, not how they look or sit on your body. So make sure you try on various styles, and then find the pair that’s right for you.
