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…
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.
