As the skinny jeans debate between Millennials and Gen Z continues, we’re stepping in, not to take sides, but to sing the praises of one of our favorite varieties of denim: the wide leg jean. Yes, wide-leg pants are inherently comfortable — a surefire way to slip into post-pandemic denim — but they’re also a great match for your back-to-work blazers, boots, and skinny tops. Don’t know where to start? Look no further than these wide leg styles.
High waisted jeans can still “ride up” on occasion. Pair it with a chunky boot to elongate your legs and a cropped cut cable knit sweater to accentuate your midsection.
