How to Style Wide Leg Jeans: 10 Outfit Ideas
The biggest concern people have about the wide-leg denim trend is that these jeans are TOO loose-fitting (read: baggy). Let’s set the record straight. We are firm believers (along with Gen Z) that wide-leg jeans go with anything. Add your favorite blazer and a basic tee for a structured, classy combo.
Wide-leg jeans are flowy throughout, so continue that vibe on top for a cute, cohesive look. Wear a cropped tank with a flowy button-down shirt over it. In the fall, wear a flannel (or shacket!) for extra warmth.
Since wide-leg jeans make a statement, it feels natural to wear a basic tee or tank with them. But may we suggest fun outerwear as well? Wearing a bright, fun sweater over your t-shirt will amp up the retro feel of your jeans. Plus, you have the option to take it off if you want to tone the look down.
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again… your jeans are the BEST way to show off your fun shoes. Wide-leg jeans will draw the eye down, especially if they flare or are cropped at the bottom. To accentuate your favorite pair of booties or sandals even further, use them as inspo for the rest of your outfit. Take this post as an example! Dark green booties + bright green shirt = crisp, summer outfit.
Try wearing your high-rise jeans with a textured top, like this feathered crop top. If wearing a flowy shirt feels too baggy-on-baggy, this is a great alternative.
Not only are bodysuits the MOST comfy, but they’re the perfect contrast to wide-leg jeans. They give your outfit an element of sleekness and let the jeans shine. Try pairing a bodysuit with high-waisted wide-leg jeans to show off your curves and accentuate your waistline.
One of our favorite trends right now is wearing claw clips and layered jewelry with everything (even athleisure). For a take on the accessories trend, wear a pair of wide-leg jeans with a turtleneck (the perfect basic top), hoops, a cozy jacket, and boots. Wear your hair in a clip for an undone look, or slick it back into a bun for a sleek touch.
A trench coat is the classiest wardrobe staple, and we love the look of it over relaxed wide-leg jeans. Wearing a long coat like this makes even a casual outfit look elevated and unique.
