The Wide Leg Is Here to Stay: 8 Pants I'm Buying to Round Out My Wardrobe

After decades of wearing skinny jeans, I feel so grateful for this moment when every comfortable pair of pants is having its moment: cargos, joggers, knitwear, and chinos are everywhere to be found these days! I genuinely can't imagine pulling skin-tight stretchy denim over my hips ever again. In fact, it even makes me shrug off the idea of wearing tights, too, and I can't say it's a bad thing. Wide-leg pants look elevated, chic, and–dare I say it—cool. We know now that it's not just a trend. Wide legs are here to stay, and each and every one of us look all the more confident because of it. Run, don't walk, to the roundup I have in store for you. It covers the best styles in denim, twill, knit, and silk, and none of them will require you to sit on your bed to get them on.

I dare you to find another pair of trousers that look this good at this price.

I mean, I'd wear these with lug-sole boots and second-skin tops all year long, but ya can't really go wrong any way you wear a classic pair of Dickies.

These white jeans are pricy, but that subtle stitching is so good.

Silk! Jogger! Cargos! You had my attention at silk and sold me with those ruched hems.

I haven't been seeing a lot of argyle in circulation this year, which means these unique pants really are worth every pretty penny they cost.

This washed-grey shade is super current, and this cut is a style you'll want to live in.

Okay, a pants roundup is not complete without every important shade of denim represented.
