Wide Leg Jeans
Move over skinny leg jeans! The retro silhouette of wide leg jeans is back big time.
Here’s the low down on how to wear this season’s latest denim trend.
Crops are Tops
Due to its magical ability to create a smaller waist and visually lengthen legs. A high waisted, wide-leg jean is best friends with anything cropped. Think cropped woolly jumper for cooler temperatures or a crop top for summer. Accentuate that waist with a belt for perfect balance. Heeled boots or a crisp white sneaker seal the deal.
Not a fan of a cropped tee, try the tuck. For an effortless look, tuck in a minimal tee or shirt. Add in a brown-toned belt for perfect minimalist vibes.
A half tuck also shows off the waist. Simply tuck the front section of a top into the jean’s waistband. Only a centimetre or two is needed. Let the rest fall naturally over the top of the waistband for simple style.
Another trend that isn’t going anywhere is the sweater vest. The knitted wonders pair perfectly with our wide-leg denim friends. Whether slipped over a shirt or turtleneck, a vest will keep you warm minus those annoying bunchy layers. Get in-vested and learn the right way to style a vest via our favourite fashion stylists.
Go to Blazers
Whether it is a cold busting puffer or a simple blazer, wide-leg jeans are the perfect companion for winter styling. As not to detract from the cinched waist, choose a jacket that is cropped or can be worn open. As not to lose waist definition, belt up the blazer at the natural waistline. Avoid getting swamped by sticking to jackets above the knee.
Tone on Tone
Evoke the confidence of someone who never spills their coffee with head to toe tonal dressing. White on white or beige on beige is common for this minimalist trend. Pair beige wide-leg jeans with a floaty linen shirt. Tuck in only onside and let the rest flow for Hamptons-esque style.
Keep the focus on the waist by choosing minimal accessories. Petite layered gold chains pair well with a simple tee or turtleneck. Crossbody bags or bumbags keep the look slick. Wrap up long scarves to avoid them trailing past the waist.
