How to Style Wide Leg Jeans in 2018

Echoing last week’s post, wide leg jeans are certainly something I thought I’d NEVER buy again. My skinny jeans and I are were in a committed relationship since the late 2000s. My childhood memories of wide leg jeans are most definitely tainted. I only remember getting them covered in dirt and mud since they were always waaaay too wide for my legs. Since fashion is cyclical, though, never say never. Wide leg jeans are making a serious comeback this season.


Lost as to how to style wide leg jeans in 2018? The key thing to remember when styling wide leg jeans is to balance proportions by wearing a tighter top. I wore my pair with a cropped tie-front blouse floral blouse for a  retro/country vibe (a refreshing departure for my usual style).  I thought my jeans looked best with sneakers but in the shoppable widget below, you’ll see them styled with sandals, heels, and boots.

Blouse: H&M, similar here and here

Jeans: Forever 21

Sneakers: FILA

    I love how you styled your wide-leg jeans, Emily! I don’t know if I could pull them off (a little too committed to my skinny jeans haha!) but they look so cute on you!
