Everyone has preferences when it comes to different styles of jeans. Between straight-leg jeans, bootcut jeans, wide-leg jeans, high-waist jeans, or flared jeans, there are plenty of options to choose from. With all the different brands out there, you can find each style in both stretchy and rigid denim fairly easily. So what’s the difference? 


Stretchy jeans incorporate some elastic and stretchy material in the fabric blend to achieve comfort, style, and a fit that offers some give. This is ideal for skinny jeans and high-rise jeans as rigid denim can be very constricting in these styles. Rigid denim on the other hand has a higher cotton content for a stiffer fabric. One of the major appeals of rigid denim is its durability. However, this often leads to a longer time before they fit comfortably. Rigid denim often creates the perfect vintage jean but you can still achieve that look with a great pair of high rise jeans or stretchy mom jeans.  


Types of Jean Materials 


Jean materials often incorporate a ratio of cotton and some flexible and stretchy material like spandex or elastane. A great ratio of denim and stretch is perfect for a pair of high-rise skinny jeans like those in our women's denim collection that will make you look good while staying extremely comfortable.
