The best thing about wide leg jeans is their ability to chameleon. Pair it with a plain white tank top and you’ve got your whole weekend wardrobe sorted. Take it to the next level with an oversized blouse or shirt and you’ve got an effortlessly chic casual style for the office.
We love wide leg jeans in vintage wash blue, denim wash and cream. Here are our top picks for shopping now.
1. Best Vintage Wide Leg Jeans: Outland Denim
Last year it was Outland Denim’s collaboration with Montana Lower that got us added to the basket, this year it’s their collaboration with Spell that mesmerized us.
It’s the perfect high waisted fit, somewhere between wide leg jeans and flare jeans.
SHOP: Spell x Outland Denim Wide Leg Flare, $229
Best Versatile Wide Leg Jeans: Rolla’s
With a length that’ll skim the ankles of tall women and just hit the floor if you’re shorter, Rolla’s Sailor jeans are a great all-rounder – they’ve got the details to make them feel more suitable for work (and a dark wash enough to not feel too washed out), with a comfortable high waist.
STORE: Sailor jeans from Rolla, $149.95
Best Affordable Wide Leg Jeans: Cotton On
Cotton On has released its denim collection for 2021, featuring all the right fits (and, good news, flattering modern fits for curvy women too).
Their wide leg jeans feel great and are wonderful if you are a tall woman as they have long legs.
STORE: Wide Leg Cotton Jeans, $59.99
Best Affordable Wide Leg Jeans: Glassons
We couldn’t decide when it came to affordable jeans so we had to include two – the Glassons wide leg jeans are the perfect cropped fit – not too cropped, but with their ankle length they look great with heels and boots.
STORE: Glassons wide leg jeans, $59.99
Best Fashionable Wide Leg Jeans: Scanlan & Theodore
Scanlan & Theodore have released the perfect 70s jeans this season.
A classic blue that runs across the leg and flares out at the end, for a super flattering fit, these are top of our wishlists.
