She may be famous for modeling Victoria’s Secret underwear, but there’s no denying that Alessandra Ambrosio has sophisticated street style and looks flawless even when off duty.

As an example, she showed she was on top of denim trends for spring by wearing a chic pair of straight-leg Mother jeans for a casual date with boyfriend Richard Lee in Beverly Hills.

Spring is when we swap out dark skinny jeans for lighter, looser washes and Alessandra Ambrosio showed how to do just that with Mother SNACKS! jeans this week.

The relaxed fit gives off laid-back vibes and they look just as good with a sweater for the last days of winter as they do with a crop top or tank top when the warmer weather arrives.

The high waist pulls you in so you’ll feel more confident to show off some skin this spring.

And as a bonus, the side pockets are extra deep, so there’s no need to carry a purse.

With its high waist and relaxed leg, it exudes a relaxed, laid-back elegance, but it’s also practical for moving around and breathable enough to wear when the weather warms up in the spring.

The lightweight vintage wash is also ideal for warmer temperatures, as we say goodbye to the indigo and dark washes of winter and make room in our closet for brighter blues.

These lighter, more relaxed denim styles are also available from other brands for less if Alessandra has inspired you to invest in straight-leg jeans, but your budget is limited. Here are our top picks of the more affordable alternatives:

A high waist, zip fly with button and straight legs come together for the perfect 90s vibe.

These baggy jeans are an almost identical copy of Alessandra’s Mother pair for a quarter of the price.

Made from responsibly sourced H&Ms Conscious fabrics and ethically dyed denim, they’re also an eco-friendly choice.

For a 90s vibe, you can embrace the double denim trend with a matching denim jacket or shirt, as well as a plain tank top or cardigan and white trainers for a versatile spring outfit you can wear on multiple occasions.

Available in sizes 0 to 22, they also include the size.


Want to copy the style of a Victoria’s Secret model for less than $30? Nasty Gal makes it possible with these cute straight leg jeans in a super light wash.

The rise of these is super high and above the navel to ensure a perfect fit around the waist and hips.

As jeans get tighter at the top and looser before tapering slightly at the ankle, they will make your legs look longer and leaner, which is always a winning combination.

Want an even looser pair? Nasty Gal has several similar styles of straight leg jeans and they’re all under $50, so you might want to invest in more than one pair to give you more outfit options this spring.


The Miss Selfridge straight leg jeans are made from a slightly heavier denim which gives them more structure than other straight leg styles.

These are really straight, rather than gathered at the ankles, which means they look just as good with heels and boots as they do with sneakers.

With back pockets, your butt will look more peachy and the belted belt will slim you down around the waist.

The classic pale color of these jeans will never go out of style, so you can reuse them season after season and get the most out of these versatile jeans that cost less than $50. It also means they work with any color of top, whether you like bright colors or simple whites – these jeans will be a staple in your wardrobe this spring.


Take casual chic to a new level with the super cool Dad Jeans from ASOS Design.

Made from recycled cotton, they’re lightweight so they won’t overheat when the weather warms up.

Washing these jeans makes them darker at the hem and lighter at the top, giving the visual illusion that your legs are slimmer at the top and longer than they actually are.

The slightly flared hem also means they look fantastic with heeled sandals so you can wear them both night and day.

If you regularly go from day to night without much time to change your outfit, these jeans will make your life easier.


Combine comfort and style with these Listenwind jeans with excellent value for money.

The stretchy waistband stretches for a perfect fit, even on hourglass shapes that have wide hips and smaller waists.

With a wider bottom, they combine a 70s flared fit with a 90s straight leg so you can be ahead of every denim trend this season.


Kick your casual look up a notch with super high rise, low stretch jeans that define your waist and relax you into a true straight leg profile.

These stop just above the ankle, bringing more wind to your legs this spring. Also, there is a small tear for a rock chick edge.

Perfect for summer vacation or a spring stroll around town, you’re sure to get the most out of these versatile jeans in the months to come.

Made from premium, durable Levi’s denim, they’ll last for years, so if you’re looking for a long-term investment, check all the boxes.


For a mix of straight leg and mom jeans, try Lucky Brand’s high waisted loose straight leg jeans.

They have a relaxed fit and you know they will always look stylish with a white t-shirt and white trainers. But you can also wear them with a comfy sweater for cool mommy vibes, just like Alessandra Ambrosio did.

The long high waist shows off your waistline, helping you tackle next season with more confidence.

Since these are super faded, you don’t have to worry about colors running in the wash because the look you’re aiming for is distressed.
