The next big non–skinny jeans trend is here, and it couldn't be chicer. While skinny jeans will truly never die, nor do we want them to, we've spotted several emerging denim trends that are pretty much the antithesis of skinnies. We've already mentioned how flares and loose jeans are on the rise, and, well, we're adding another of these non-skinny styles to the top of our lists: high-rise wide-leg jeans. They rank among some of the best jeans for women and are the perfect complement to any outfit.
These are full-length jeans with a trouser-like wide leg and a high rise. We know that wide-leg jeans can be intimidating if you're not used to wearing them already, which is why the high-rise style is crucial here. It hugs you in all the right places and creates some nice dimensions for the overall silhouette. One standout pair defining the trend is the Citizens of Humanity Annina Jeans, a Who What Wear editor favorite.
To highlight this chic new denim trend, we rounded up the freshest wide-leg jeans outfits that fashion people are wearing now and included our favorite pairs to try out.
