How To Wear Wide Leg Jeans Without Looking Like Donna From That 70s Show
October 25, 2010
Yes, it’s true – the reign of skinny jeans has been put on pause, giving other jeans a try. Rachel Zoe declared that wide leg jeans are actually more flattering and a better go-to than their skinny counterparts. But wearing bellbottoms without looking like a cast member on That 70s Show isn’t easy. So follow our suggestions and make wide leg jeans work for you:
Wide Leg Jeans With Flats: A Flattering Lunch Date Outfit
For an everyday outfit, feel free to hide a pair of flats under the oversized flare.
We love the sophistication of thesse Anlo Pascale Trouser Jean ($205) with a little splash of color from these Sam Edelman Calypso Flat ($98.95). Keep the rest of our outfit basic, with a simple cardigan, like this J. Crew Valentina Cashmere Cardigan ($160).
Wide Leg Jeans With Pumps: Casual Friday To Drinks In A Heartbeat
Whether for a nighttime drink or a casual Friday at the office, wide leg jeans look super flattering when paired with heels. Hello, mile-long legs.
A quality pair if dark wide leg jeans, such as these Alloy Truck Stretch Wide Leg Jeans ($40), are a must have for every fall wardrobe. Go for a more executive look and team up this Three Button Shrunken Blazer ($125) with a Classique Entier Camisole ($38). We suggest leaving the jacket open.
Grow a few inches and elongate those legs with these Topshop Sakura Suede Heels ($125), which match everything under the sun. And throw on this Tarnish Mutli Chain Necklace ($32) for a finishing touch. Tada – a trendy version of the disco classic.
