10 High-Waisted Wide Leg Jeans We L-O-V-E

Make room in your closet for high-rise, wide leg denim!

At first glance, wide leg jeans may resemble flare jeans. But when you look closer, you’ll notice that flared cut are tight around the hips, thighs, and knees before extending outward. Wide leg, on the other hand, fit more like the letter A. They’re narrow at your hips with a gradual (rather than dramatic) flare extending down to your ankles for a trouser look. 

Due to their shape, they tend to divert attention away from the hips — so if that’s something you’re looking for, this may be the cut for you. And for all our petite friends who fear getting swallowed up in all that fabric, go for a narrower letter A.

Below, we’ve rounded up our ten favorite wide leg jeans in a high-waisted cut, meaning they rest above your belly button. 

Without further ado… 

These deep blue, indigo-colored jeans are as classy as they get, with whiskering that adds to the worn (or should we say loved) look.

The light blue, faded wash of these jeans pairs perfectly with a graphic t-shirt or, come winter, a chunky sweater. They sit high up on the waist (10”) with a 28.5” inseam

These hit just below the knee for a comfy wide leg crop look. And with the help of Lift Tuck technology, you’ll get the added bonus of a front slimming panel with a crisscross design to help flatter your beautiful curves.

Levi’s makes these high-rise, loose-fit wide leg jeans with non-stretch denim — specifically 79% cotton and 21% lyocell (form of rayon).

Looking for a way to make the whole jean shopping process WAY easier?

That’s where Revelle comes in. When you join — which, BTW, doesn’t cost you anything — we’ll ask you a few questions about your beautiful body. From there, we work our magic (and by magic, we mean technology) to build your personal store. As you like (heart) and dislike (broken heart) jeans, we’ll get to know your tastes, preferences, and style even better so you can find your perfect pair.

Here’s another pair of cropped jeans we love, this time from NYDJ. Because they’ll stretch with wear, we recommend ordering one size down.

Choose between Honeybee (light wash) and Auburn (darker, pictured here). Either way, you can’t go wrong.

Made with 100% cotton, these super durable wide leg jeans are practically begging to be paired with thick-soled sneakers for a day out and about.

Fun fact about the Wrangler brand: their jeans became SO popular in the 1974 rodeo circuit that a custom pair was deemed the official jean of the Rodeo Cowboy’s Association of the USA.

We love the removable D-ring belt in these faded trouser jeans.

These wide leg jeans are on the slouchier side, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be dressed up if need be!

In the world of wide leg pants, these are on the slimmer side, meaning they’ll pair beautifully with everything from a fitted blazer to a crop top.
