I love denim. May be in the form of short jeans for the summer, mom jeans for a weekend errand, or a oversized denim jacket For fall, denim is a category I try on and never go out of style (even for those slightly less casual moments). Yes, I have gone through the phases of the trend; tight jeans – once a fashion and then a wardrobe staple – straight legs, flared legs, you name them. But, blaming the need to prioritize comfort without sacrificing style, my denim range has slowly gone from tight and fitted to floral. So stay with me here: You need loose jeans, and you need them now.
If you’re like me, you want your feet to be free. Free to dance, free to move, free to lounge, free to perch in your office chair…you get it. Fit styles are great and all, but they leave a lot to be desired when you’re living in the ultimate comfort of your jeans. Not to mention, wide leg jeans just look cool—And who wouldn’t want that? Yes, I know, denim is denim. So if you want a sleek way to wear jeans, this is the way to go. Just take a hint from Jennifer Lopez, who wears style with sweater on honeymoon. Or, if you want an easy weekend look, channel Jennifer Lawrencewho styled wide leg jeans with a cut T-shirt early this summer.
Those of you who haven’t taken a walk on the wider side may find the appearance intimidating. Fear not, there’s wide leg jeans for everyone! Up front, I’ve rounded up the best wide leg jeans to incorporate into your wardrobe this fall.
