Ditch The Skinnies: 4 Ways to Walk On The Wide Side
Some trends are easy to get behind while others are a little trickier. Case in point: Wide leg jeans. There’s something sexy and effortless about a baggy jean that has skinny devotees swooning. Peel off those skintight jeans and get on the wide leg wagon with these four key types.
Dare To Flare
Proportion is key when trying to nail this 70s bell bottom look. Opt for a short, cropped jacket that hits at the waist to balance out the volume on your lower half. For shorter frames, look to lengthen with a slick long, tunic that’s perfect for creating a smart silhouette.
Reach New Heights
Wide leg jeans are a tricky balancing act between fashion-forward and frumpy. For baggy jean beginners, high-waisted denim is your easiest solution. A sleek crop top will look sharp paired with a jean that hits above the hips.
Crop And Cuff
For the girl who loves the freedom of flares without overdoing the wide denim trend, we’ve got a solution for you: jeans that open below the knee and crop above the ankle. Cuffing them can shorten these comfy culottes to any length you want. From petites who need a little more breathing room to ladies perfecting their shoe game, this style is ideal for a wide array of wide-leg lovers.
Make Mom Proud
Like any revolution, the mom jean has been met with some skepticism. Consider this a happy hybrid between your high-waisted straight leg and beloved boyfriend jeans. These newer versions clean up nicely with a crisp white blouse and sandals or a sexy stiletto.
Whether your wide-leg preference is flared, cropped or high, we’re all united in our love for this new type of leg freedom. Say sorry to your skinny jeans and say hello to the new normal.
