for "lightweight denim"  midrise, straightleg jeans for summer? Not looking for "color" -  just plain ole lightwash blue denim that is NOT stretch; faded; shaded; ripped; or high waisted.  I think added stretch makes denim too warm for summer. 

 

Any and all input appreciated.

Do you want to share the size you're looking for and your budget?

I suggest you go to websites and look. Only you know what you are looking for and only you know what stores you shop at. For example, I'm always on Nordstrom.com. Start there. They have tons & tons of jeans for women. All kinds.

@schmadsquad I am a big fan of DG jeans on HSN.  There are many different styles and pricepoints.  Her jeans really fit better than any others I've worn including pricier ones from INC (Macy's) and jeans from the Loft.

lolakimono: I am a size misses 12; jeans for casual everyday wear so not expensive - max $60.

I am short so I cannot do high waist. Think mostly cotton with little or no spandex would be the most comfortable in Chicago summers.

I like DKNY and LEI jeans.  Some have a little stretch, others do not.  The ones with stretch are a lighter fabric.  I don’t do more than 2% spandex in any jean.

lolakimono thank you. I have ordered the Lee jeans you suggested. Found a petite short on sale at Kohls plus I had a 30% off coupon. Certainly checks off all the boxes.
