10 Jan THT-How to Style Wide Leg Jeans – These are Under $40!
How do you style wide leg jeans? If you are interested and wanted a pair, I’ll give you some tips!
How to Style Wide Leg Jeans
Wide leg jeans are hot this year! You can see them at most retailers and they offer a new sillouette in case you wear tired of your skinny jeans, or just wanted a change of pace.
I like to have a variety of cuts in my jean wardrobe, and always seemed to like this style. You have seen me on the blog, style this much worn pair of wide leg cropped jeans, but I was on the search for the full length version
I found these wide leg jeans at Old Navy, on-line and loved the idea of an extra high waist ( as I am long waisted) and the wide leg. The extra high waist is not too extra ( its not under my armpits! ) but is great if you are someone with a small waist. Not only were these a good style, but they are ON SALE and under $40!
The material here is 99% cotton and 1 % elastane, which is the same as my Madewell Perfect Vintage jeans. I love the feel of real denim and didn’t want a totally “rigid” jean (100% cotton). So, this is weighty and feels like jeans, as opposed to a super stretchy legging type jean. The slight stretch adds a little give. I first bought these in my regular size 4, but when I got them, the hips and legs were too big. I returned those and got a size down, and they were a much better fit. Jeans with more cotton will also stretch a bit.
These are also a great pair that contain Lyocell, a soft fabric.
The main thing to consider with wide leg jeans is proportions.
Styling these wide leg jeans
- Wear a more fitted top or blazer to balance out proportions.
- A bodysuit would be a great pairing as the sleekness of the top and more voluminous bottom works well.
- A button down tied at the waist.
- Wear them with a heel to continue the leg line.
- Converse sneakers give a fun, streetstyle laid back look.
- In the summer, a simple black or white tank will let the jeans take center stage, but will look effortless
- Tuck in a floral romantic blouse for Spring with some strappy heels
My plaid blazer is H&M, as is my black turtleneck. A great place for some basics. I wear these Dolce Vita croc print boots alot and am carrying my favorite bag from Teddy Blake to give the look some rich color.
What’s Going On?
I wanted to style some pants and jeans on the blog here, as I am sure most of you are wearing these items, With my neuralgia, I am not yet at the point that I can wear these, so we just do it for photoshoots. The nerve is a bit irritated if I wear them, but the wide leg is a bit looser, so better than a skinny to wear anyhow. I am slowly making progress and learning strengthening and pelvic stabilization exercises in order for the muscles around the pelvis to to more of the work without recruiting as much of the pelvic floor. I have been going out a bit on the weekends and use my cushion to sit. I have good and bad days at the moment but hope to improve as the months go on.
I’ve managed to get 10K followers on IG. If you don’t follow me, I would love it if you would. I can’t say it’s easy keeping up with the blog and social media, but so far, I’m doing what I can.
I got my eyebrows microbladed about 5 days ago, so I hope to do a post or video on that. There is a whole healing process, and they are still pretty dark. Will settle and lighten at the 2-week ish mark.
With things settling a bit, I will have more time to make it to your blogs and comment!
