Style Terms explains Straight Leg

As the name implies, straight leg jeans are jeans with a silhouette running straight down to the bottom. They have a consistent leg and tend to feel somewhat snugger in the thigh. While occasionally confused with skinny jeans, straight leg jeans differ in that they do not taper towards the bottom but have an even leg throughout. Straight leg jeans offer a comfortable, classic and are a popular cut for jeans today.
