Ditch Your Standard Skinnies for These Wide-Leg Jeans

We love a good pair of skinny jeans as much as the next person. After all, the once-trendy item has become a classic staple among our denim collection. However, sometimes we want to mix things up—which is why we have our eyes on wide-leg jeans this summer. As a stark contrast to the fitted favorite, creating a wide-leg jeans outfit for summer can be trickier than you’d expect.

Without a doubt, it can be done. Wide-leg jeans will not only elevate your summer look with an air of polish, but you’ll also be so comfortable as you’re making your regular commute or heading to lunch with friends. To illustrate our point, we’ve curated a number of our favorite looks from street style stars. From a simple take on jeans and tee to a cool statement top ensemble, let these looks serve as sartorial inspiration, and then shop the pieces you need to add these outfits to your own closet.
