These Wide-Leg Jeans Are a Chic Answer to the Denim Debate

I like denim. Be it in the shape of jean shorts for summer, mom jeans for weekend errands, or an oversized denim jacket for fall, denim is my tried-and-true category that never fails (even for the marginally less casual moments). Yes, I’ve been through the phases of trends; skinny jeans—which once were trendy after which became a closet staple—straight legs, flares, you name ‘em. But, blame it on the necessity to prioritize comfort without sacrificing style, my denim range has slowly gone from tight and fitted to flowy. So, stick with me here: You would like wide-leg jeans, and you wish them now.

When you’re anything like me, you want your legs to be free. Free to bounce, free to maneuver, free to lounge, free to perch atop your office chair…you get it. Fitted styles are great and all, but they leave much to be desired with regards to living in the height comfort of your jeans. Not to say, wide-leg jeans just look cool—and who wouldn’t want that? Yeah, I do know, denim is denim. So, in the event you want a cultured technique to wear jeans, that is the technique to go. Just take a cue from Jennifer Lopez, who wore the style with a sweater on her honeymoon. Or, in the event you want a simple weekend look, channel Jennifer Lawrence, who styled wide-leg jeans with a cropped T-shirt earlier this summer.

Those of you who’ve yet to take a walk on the broader side may find the look intimidating. Fear not, there are wide-leg jeans for everybody! Ahead, I’ve pulled together one of the best wide-leg jeans to include into your wardrobe this fall.
