What To Wear With: Wide Leg Jeans

Wide leg jeans can be like your best frenemy: you keep them close by because they appear so personable and chic from afar, but if you're not careful, this denim can destroy your whole look. But this doesn't mean you should shy away from wide leg jeans altogether. They are a flattering, trendy alternative to the skinny jean – as long as they are worn correctly.  First and foremost, buy the right size! Make sure they are not too tight in the thighs or butt, and that the waist doesn't fall too low-  it should go higher than a low-rise jean. Also pay attention to the length. Choosing a jean that is too short will stump you and make the whole operation look silly. Now onto the rest of the outfit.

 

Since the smallest part of the jeans is the waist, opt for a fitted blouse that you can tuck in. Then wrap a classic belt around your mid-section in a neutral brown or black. Depending on the length of the jeans (you'll want them to almost graze the floor) choose a pair of fun, high shoes for longer length, or simple flats for shorter jeans. Then top off the ensemble with a chic pair of shades and a day tote in a complementary beige. Your outfit will be simple, tailored, and incredibly flattering.
