Wide Leg Jeans: A Must Have For Fall
Hello friends and happy August! There is still MUCH summer ahead, but August cues me into fall mode every year. Now is the time to start thinking ahead to your fall wardrobe since most of us are set in the summer clothing department. Today I want to talk about wide leg jeans: a must have for fall!
Wide leg jeans are a stylish and versatile choice for your fall wardrobe. They offer a modern and flattering silhouette that suits many body types. The wider leg opening provides comfort and allows for easy movement. Whether you prefer a relaxed fit or a more tailored look, there are wide leg jeans available in various styles, washes, and sizes to suit your personal taste.
A wide leg jean is different from a flare style jean. A flare is fitted through the thigh and then flares out toward the bottom. A wide leg jean is wide all the way down the leg.
One common concern for petite women is finding wide leg jeans that are the right length. If you’re on the shorter side, you may find that regular-length wide leg jeans are too long for you. However, there are a few options that can help you rock this trend without compromise.
One option is to look for petite-specific sizes. Many clothing brands offer specially designed jeans for petite women, including wide leg styles. These jeans are tailored to fit shorter frames, taking into account inseam length and overall proportions. Petite wide leg jeans can help you achieve the perfect fit, without the need for alterations.
Another option is to embrace cropped wide leg jeans. These jeans have a shorter inseam and typically end around the ankle or mid-calf. They can create a chic and modern look, especially when paired with heels or ankle boots. Cropped wide leg jeans are a great choice for petite women who want to show off their footwear and add a touch of flair to their outfits.
Remember, wide leg jeans can be dressed up or down, making them a versatile staple for your fall wardrobe. Pair them with a tucked-in blouse and heels for a polished look, or dress them down with a simple t-shirt and sneakers for a more casual vibe. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different styling options to make wide leg jeans your go-to piece for fall fashion.
Ways To Style Wide Leg Jeans
There are endless brands and styles to choose from when it comes to wide leg jeans. I have two pair to show you today that are new purchases. One is from Loft and is a midrange price point, and the other is more budget friendly from Kohl’s.
These come in a regular and petite length. I love the length on these because I can wear them with flats. For size reference, I’m wearing a 29 regular. They do run big, so size down if you are in between sizes.
My top is also new from Loft. It’s the Everyday Crossover Top and it looks like a wrap style but does not require any weird snaps or tying. It stays together and will be a great wardrobe staple for all year around.
My only complaint on this top is the sizing. It seems to run big. I’m wearing a medium and as you can see, it is plenty roomy. I was hoping for more of a tailored fit like the model in the photo. Oddly enough the reviews say it runs small, but I disagree.
The second pair of wide leg jeans is a more casual style from Kohl’s. The SO Super High Rise Wide Leg Jeans are a lighter wash and a more relaxed fit. This is a junior brand so don’t be discouraged if you need to size up! I sized up 2 sizes in these.
I found these in store and what drew me to them was the soft texture and lightweight denim. These will be good for the earlier weeks of fall when it is still quite warm outside. I also like that these are a nice length and can be worn with sneakers or flats.
My top is the only item I kept from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’m not sure if it’s sold out or not, but here is the link. I’m wearing a size large. My shoes have been a favorite this summer. They are the espadrille sneakers from Walmart.
Below I have linked some other wide leg jeans that you may enjoy browsing. Loft jeans always fit my body type so well, so I always recommend their denim. If you don’t have a pair of wide leg jeans, then I hope this will inspire you. I really think they are a must-have for fall 2023!
