We’re not ready to turn in our skinnies, but a denim trend we were decidedly lukewarm on oh, maybe as recently as six months ago, is suddenly elbowing it’s way into our fashion-loving hearts! The latest denim trend we’re loving is long wide leg jeans! We gave them a try and now we realize why the wide leg denim trend is so popular! They’re slimming, elongating, and look fabulous with summer sandals and heels!
long & straight
I recently did a try on in our insta stories of three brands of wide leg jeans, asking our followers which pair they preferred. This Reformation pair was the hands down winner! The length is perfect to wear with all of my 2-3 inch heels or wedges, and the width of the leg isn’t too wide. Wide leg jeans are high-waisted and very comfortable! This outfit with wide leg jeans paired with a cropped muscle tee makes me feel like one of the cool girls!
straight & cropped
These aren’t your 80s mom jeans! The modern wide leg straight jean is high-waisted with a slight taper at the waist. It flatters your curves and relaxed details like distressing and softened lightwash fabric. The whole tone is effortless chic, which gives it that European cool girl vibe! Let the jeans take centerstage and style with simple tops and minimalist shoes.
wide & long
Previously, my long jeans styles were flared and boot cut. I wore them with heels for more of a date night look. This season I really wanted to find a new wide leg jean that I could wear with flats. This Banana Republic pair is absolutely perfect! The material is soft and flowy, and I love the frayed hem. These jeans are the right length with flat sandals, and I know I’ll get more use out of them in my denim outfit rotation!
If you’re looking to update your casual wardrobe, you should try these wide leg denim styles! We still love skinny jeans, straight leg jeans, and flared jeans, but wide leg denim is such a fun, cool and comfortable change! Paying attention to new denim trends and adding them to your wardrobe is a great way to stay modern and stylish!
