Kate Middleton Wore the Trend Everyone's Ditching Skinny Jeans For

Kate Middleton is the original skinny jean stan, i.e., she's known for being unwavering in her love for the classic denim. Over and over, we've shared how she wears them, whether she's attending a royal engagement or shopping off-duty. But this season, there's a new shape taking over the pant drawers of fashion girls, celebrities, and now royals, too. Looser, wide-leg pants are quickly gaining ground, and they're a trend we predicted will breakthrough—and it did.

On a royal tour to Cyprus last year, Middleton opted for a black pair of loose-leg trousers to give her stamp of approval to the trend. The pant style may be getting all the buzz among the trendy set, but the duchess styled it in the most royal way: with a tailored blazer, neutral pumps, and cinched with a leather belt to give the look some of Middleton's signature polish.

Scroll down to see how Kate Middleton styled the wide-leg pant trend that will surely eclipse skinny jeans in the coming year, and keep reading to shop our pant picks.
