Prepare To Say 'Peace Out, Skinny Jeans'--Wide Leg Pants Are IN For Spring

Anyone that’s over wearing skin-tight jeans and leggings should be super amped for spring. The wide leg is back, and it’s not the only trend to reemerge from the 70’s. The pants silhouette is accompanied by clogs, caftans or mumus (you say potato), and ethereal peasant tops, basically anything that one would have worn to Woodstock. “Spring 15 is a celebration of all that is wonderful about the 70’s. We are so excited to bring back the must-have denim silhouette of the decade. We have been in an exclusively “skinny jean” cycle for a while and it is with open arms that we welcome this old, but oh-so-new, look as an alternative for spring,” explains Bloomingdale’s OVP/Fashion Director Brooke Jaffe. “There’s an expansive range of blues to love, from deep dark indigos to really faded washes of the hue—my favorite is the white flare.”

Besides the fact that flares and wide leg bottoms are way more comfortable than a clingy skinny jean, they also tend to be way more flattering. “We love our new flares, from more subtle boot cuts to fuller styles. The look is extremely flattering because it highlights the waist and curve of the body, as the bell of the pant makes your waist look smaller in proportion,” continues Jaffe. “It’s fresh and modern this season because of how many ways it can be styled. Our favorite is when done with classic shirting—my new favorite proportion is the slightly boxier short sleeve cotton button down. But we also love embracing the look from head to toe—printed peasant blouses feel right, especially when they bare a little shoulder.”

Obviously by now you’re getting that wide leg denim is really big for spring (I mean, Brooke Jaffe says so), but flared trousers and culottes were also major players on the runways. So whether you prefer your wide leg to come in the form of a jean or a cropped silk pant, the trend covers all styles and tastes—just browse through the 35 different styles I found to see what I’m talking about.
