Sorry to All My Jeans—I'm Preferring These High-Waisted Wide-Leg Pants Instead

I've always been drawn to wide-leg pants not only because they're comfortable, but being a modest dresser, I preferred clothing items that had a more relaxed fit. I also can't fail to mention that I grew up loving '90s style, so I just think they looked (and felt) cooler. Even in high school when skinny jeans were all the rage, I scoured through thrift stores and the mall for pants that fit wide on the leg and would have my mom take in the waist. They're the backbone of my wardrobe, and while I love jeans for specific outfits, I haven't relied on them as heavily as I've been relying on more relaxed pants, because in my honest opinion, I think the latter is easier to style and look more elevated, too. 

Below, I've rounded up four wide-leg and high-waisted styles I love along with how I've been wearing them recently and shoppable options if you want to join in on the fun, too. From patterned to leather pairs, I won't be straying away from these anytime soon when it comes to my day-to-day ensembles.

A knit or fleece wide-leg pant has been my favorite alternative to jeans because of the comfort all around from the fit to feel.

With more faux and relaxed versions coming on the market, it's much easier to get the luxe look leather gives to your outfit.

When I want to add a funky element to my outfit, a pair of pants with a unique print or pop of color is my go-to, because

While most people might be drawn to pair jeans with everything, I think a pair of neutral-toned wide-leg trousers are the ultimate staple everyone should own.
