With a nice pair of jeans and a shirt I feel fine, I can’t help it. Denim trousers are the most versatile and indispensable item of any wardrobe. Made with a sturdy cotton fabric that began to take hold after the Second World War, where it was used to wrap bales of goods. We have to thank the great Levi Strauss for the idea of making it a trouser and since then it has never stopped being a trendy, glamorous and even chic garment depending on the look. Okay, but what are the models of jeans that never went out of fashion that we have probably all worn at least once in our life?
All the models of jeans that never went out of fashion
They are those elephant-legged models of jeans, or bell, that raged in the 70s and since then they have always been seen around fished out or not by the trend of the moment. Characterized by narrow leg and extremely flared bottom just to remember the shape of the legs of an elephant and a bell.

Denim trousers designed primarily for motorcyclists. With various reinforcing visible seams at strategic points and zippers on the pockets to prevent the leakage of our belongings, they allow you to ride a motorbike perfectly. They have certainly not stopped at their niche and I believe everyone has worn at least a couple of them over the course of their lives.

Boyfriend or Baggy Jeans
Recognizable by their purely masculine cut, the boyfriends are wide on the hips and leg with the horse not too low and the baggies lower. They are used a lot with lapels and are among the most comfortable and practical jeans.

Boot Cut or Flare
Denim trousers initially designed to be worn with cowboy boots. They have a flared shape but not excessively like a leg, they are narrow at the waist and obviously wider at the bottom.

Capri or Ankle jeans
Models of jeans that comes directly from the 80s. Although Capri is basically a type of trousers to be preferred in cotton or other softer fabrics, even in denim, it manages to have its beauty because. Ankle jeans are recognizable by the length that always leaves the ankle more or less exposed.

They depopulated in the 90s and since then they are among the models of jeans always present in all collections. Strictly high-waisted, they can be recognized above all by the tapered but not too narrow leg.

They must fit us like a glove, perfectly follow our shapes and are totally adherent. Narrow leg, indeed very narrow, all the way. Almost always elasticized in order to better adhere to our legs, not to take them too tight or the risk of looking like salami is assured.

All the models of jeans, they are the most timeless. Classic, cigarette-shaped, straight and slim from the bottom down. They must not be totally snug but not too loose. Let’s say soft, and to adjust we make sure that there is at least 1 cm of space between the skin and the pants.

From the palace line. They start straight and wide all the way. It is not an easy denim model, it would be better to wear it when you are tall and very proportionate.

Finally, last but not least, I point out a very trendy model that is driving all the girls crazy in the world. The slouchy jeans that for correctness of information I must include in this list since we will hear a lot about it and personally I love them.
All the models of jeans, I think they are my absolute favorites. Launched by Zara they are literally snapping up. Strictly tight at the waist, preferably high, with a very wide fit on the leg. They end up in a cigarette and are ankle-length. Easily confused with baggy jeans, they are the most comfortable of all, capable of easily replacing sweatpants.
