Everlane Wide Leg Crop Pants versus Straight Leg Crop Pants
Straight Leg Crop Pants (Tall Length) on Left, Wide Leg Crop Pants (Regular Length) on Right
Fit and Fabric
Obviously, the leg width between the two styles is different. The Straight Leg Crop pants are definitely more slim but not too slim. Other than that, they feel really similar to the wide leg styles. The waist and inseam measurements are the same. They are both high rise. The material is still a thick cotton twill with a slight stretch. Even though the material feels sturdy, it does have a soft, lived in feel. Everlane also has lightweight versions of both the Straight Leg Crop and Wide Leg Crop pant made out of a chino fabric.
It’s harder to tell from the collage photo but the Wide Leg version is a pretty wide pant leg. I find it very comfortable and flattering on me but it is a lot of fabric for someone who is petite. They do have short lengths available in both the Wide Leg Crop styles and Straight Leg Crop styles so if you are petite I would definitely recommend that. The Straight Leg style is offered in a Tall/Long inseam and the Wide Leg style is not.
I’m wearing the Regular Length in the Wide Leg crop (26.5 inch inseam) and a Tall Length in the Straight Leg Crop (28.5 inch inseam). They do look similar in length in the photos but the Straight Leg crop pants are longer. It’s just a personal preference for me – with the wide leg style I don’t mind a shorter cut. For the straighter leg I felt like the regular length would look too short.
How to Style Wide and Straight Leg Pants
I’ve styled these pants in a ton of different ways. With button down shirts, t-shirts, blazers and sweaters. I would style the straight leg crop pants and the wide leg crop pants in the same ways.

I like both the straight leg and wide leg styles but I do still prefer the wide leg. I just prefer the silhouette it creates with my frame. But I know the wide leg style isn’t for everyone. If it’s a little too much for you the straight leg version is a good option!
