Four chic and effortless ways to wear wide leg jeans. See how to style wide leg jeans into outfits that are on trend and make an impact.

Last week social media was buzzing about the fact that Gen Z had declared skinny jeans out of style on TikTok. While I’m not one to let Generation Tide Pods dictate my wardrobe, I will admit that I like options and am happy to see wide leg and boyfriend styles making comebacks.

The thing about wearing wide leg jeans is that it can be a fine line between looking edgy-chic verses looking like you should be wearing a flannel in your best friend’s garage listening to Nirvana. If you want to dip your toes into the trend here are four ways to wear wide leg jeans- no flannels required. Links to each piece are under the last photo for each outfit.

The Jeans

For this post I styled a pair of Daily Ritual cropped wide leg jeans from Amazon. I’m 5’4” so they are a little longer on me. I tried a TON of wide leg jeans and this is my favorite pair that I’ve found. They are super comfortable and the cut is flattering. They run a bit big so if you are between sizes I would size down.

Outfit 1:

With a Half Tucked Tunic and Espadrilles

The first look is a bit of a dressy update on wide leg jeans. By pairing them with a tunic and espadrilles I elevated them so you could wear them out on a date night or to dinner. I added my Bauble Bar Kew Collar statement necklace to further dress the look up. I think this is a nice look for Spring. You could always swap the necklace out for a pendant to make it a little less glam for daytime.

Outfit 2:

With a Men’s White Oxford Shirt and Loafers

For this one I raided my husband’s closet. I think a men’s button down adds a bit of the unexpected for a look that’s chic but effortless at the same time. You can always use a women’s shirt but you’ll lose a bit of the edge. I kept the accessories simple to further the androgynous style of the outfit.

Outfit 3:

With an Oversized Off the Shoulder Sweater

For this outfit I broke one of my own style rules. I normally say if you go for volume on the top you should keep things streamlined on the bottom. But there’s something about a half tucked sweater with the wide leg jeans that really feels down to earth. I think an off the shoulder look adds a bit of femininity and keeps it interesting.

Outfit 4:

With a Long Cardigan and Statement Sneakers

There’s nothing that says comfy to me like a cardigan and I’m loving it with these jeans. Add a pair of statement sneakers and you are ready to take on the world (or at least your errands list)! My Social Threads Vegan Messenger Bag has been my go-to bag lately and was a must for this on-the-go outfit.
