These are the best damned pair of jeans we've ever owned. Why? Skinny jeans make our hips look about eight times wider than they actually are. And boot cuts might as well come with a stamp that says "Attended high school in the 1990s." Which means it's time to go back to the classics. Straight legs are flattering, comfortable, and pretty much guaranteed to never go out of style. JOE'S Cigarette Straight Leg jeans ($179) have the perfect leg width and the right amount of stretch, and they rise to just below the navel. That means no faux love handles and no underbelly pooching. Just like their namesake, they're highly addictive.
