Lightweight jeans are the most comfortable to wear when new, as they typically require less breaking-in than heavier jeans. Heavier jeans are more durable and also keep the legs warmer. There are many different kinds of unique fits, like skinny jeans and boot-cut styles. Traditional blue jeans are the most popular style, but jeans come in a wide variety of colors and textures.
