The Ultimate Guide To Wide Leg Jeans


We can all agree that relaxed, wide leg jeans are IN, right? If you’re struggling to let go of your skinny jeans (or if you’re looking for even more wide leg jeans to add to your closet), you’re in the right place! 

We’ve pulled together ALL of our favorite wide leg jeans and the trendiest ways to style them.

We’re starting out with the trendiest silhouette of them all… low-rise! If you’re a high-waisted jeans lover, low-rise can feel a little intimidating. However, because wide leg jeans are loose throughout, the low rise waistline can actually be quite flattering (and a nice balance against the slouchiness of the jeans). Here are our fav pairs!

These dark-wash, trouser-inspired jeans are made with stretch denim, so they’re extra comfy (while looking SO put together!). Plus, they have the 7 For All Mankind signature pocket design.

If you’re looking to SLAY the low-rise, baggy jeans trend… These are the jeans for you! They have the perfect low waist and come in a wide variety of shades (each with their own distressed details). Pair them with an oversized t-shirt and platform sneakers for a trendy, street-style outfit.

Black Wide Leg Jeans

Who doesn’t need another pair of black jeans? We are here for the monochromatic, clean girl aesthetic and black jeans are the perfect pants for the look.

Allow us to introduce you to the barrel jean. They have a wide leg fit throughout, but taper slightly for a slim fit at the bottom. Because of their unique fit, you can still achieve the trendy, baggy jean look AND show off your cute shoes (and not worry about the bottom of your jeans touching the floor).

WHISTLES High Waist Barrel Jeans

We believe white jeans belong in your closet all year round. They’re crisp, neutral, and they always look oh-so put together.

We’re head-over-heels for this oversized cut, which toes the line between wide leg and straight leg, is constructed with non-stretch 100% cotton, and has an extra long inseam (32”).

7 Ways To Style Wide Leg Jeans

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.

Create an airy, summery look by pairing a light denim wash with a white shirt and sandals.

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.
