Wide leg jeans are back, and I can’t be more excited for this trend to be back in style. The first memory I have of wide leg jeans being in style was back in the 70’s. And yes, I was around back then to see them live and in color. They then made a come back in the early 2000’s. Well, here we are again in 2018, sliding our straight & skinny leg jeans to the back of the closet and pushing the wide ones forward.
Wide leg pants balance out your figure giving you a slimmer look. They take all of the attention away from your midsection and hips, and focuses it around your ankles, which are covered, so don’t fret if those are not your best feature.
These wide leg jeans from Eloquii are so chic. I love the dark wash, and the attached tie belt around the waist adds a touch of flare (no pun intended). They also have a little stretch in them, which is basically a prerequisite in jeans for me these days. I paired them with a simple white top with bell sleeves, also from Eloquii.
When wearing wide leg pants, you have a variety of shoe styles to choose from. They look good with heels, wedges, or flats. With this look, I went with a Mary Jane style pump with a chunky heel (my fav).
5 Reasons you should wear wide leg jeans

Now, don’t throw out your skinny jeans yet. They are still on the top 5 list of jeans you need to have, but throw in a pair of wide leg jeans every now and then to mix things up.
