Wide-leg jeans are causing a fashion stir, but lots of us find styling them a head scratcher. Here are our favourite ways to wear the trend, from office-ready looks to the casual weekend take
One of the main questions with wide-leg jeans is “What should I wear on my feet?”. In summer it’s easy – a pair of sandals or embellished pumps work perfectly. In winter, try a flat ankle boot like this if you have long legs, or heeled boots if you’re petite. For a style statement, don’t shy away from an all-white ensemble; a lightweight roll neck layered underneath a crew-neck sweater offers a fashion-forward styling option. Alternatively, wear a coloured cashmere or merino wool jumper with your wide-leg jeans – emerald green or royal blue are both excellent options.
Wide-leg jeans are a great way to do weekend comfort in style – they look understated but cool with white trainers and a cosy hoodie. To add some polish, simply chuck on a checked blazer and you’re good to go. It’s not just a look for the grown-ups either; with a comfy ruched waistband and freedom to move, wide-leg jeans are perfect for kids too (kids’ jeans coming soon).
Whether you’re heading to the office or an evening do, there are few looks more elegant than cropped, wide-leg trousers with a chic pair of heels. Style yours with a striped shirt and blazer for effortless sophistication. You can up the glamour with chunky gold jewellery and a bright red lipstick.
