I love wide-leg jeans because they’re so comfortable and chic. They don’t cling to your legs like skinny jeans do, and in that sense, they provide a bit of extra coverage; you won’t in any way feel self-conscious wearing them. I’ve picked out two different pairs of jeans, and I’m going to show you five ways that you can style them.
Wide-Leg Denim Pants Outfits
This is the first pair of wide jeans that I’m going to be wearing in this lookbook and, as you can see, they are a light wash. I love a light wash in the spring and summer because I feel that it makes my outfit a bit more light and airy. I’ve paired it with a floral off-the-shoulder top. I love the pink rose petal print on it, and I think it pairs really well with these jeans. I’ve added a white belt to accessorize, and for shoes, I opted for a pair of white mules. Lastly, I added a pink purse that matches the floral print.
The next outfit I’m keeping very casual. I’ve started with a white tank top, and then I’ve added a stripey shirt as another layer but have left it open to give the impression of a light jacket. I’ve added a pair of pointy-toe heels for a denim on denim look. These heels are unique and have a cherished place in my wardrobe. Lastly, I’ve added a blue tote. I love the mix of the different shades of blue that feature in this look.
Dark wash jeans
Here I’m wearing a darker wash pair of jeans compared to the other type. These jeans are a little more fitted and a bit more high-waisted. They are also not frayed at the bottom compared to the other pair. They are more your simple kind of jeans, just in a wide-leg style. I’ve paired them with a white top which is super crisp and airy and great for wearing in hot weather. It has a little bit of a crochet style up on the top, and the sleeves are in a bell style. For shoes, I added a pair of open-toed mules in a neon-coral kind of color. I wanted to add a pop of color to this look to give it more of a summery vibe, and I feel that these bright mules definitely do that.
Here I’m dressing the pants down by pairing them with a graphic tee. The t-shirt says ‘weekend’ on it, and what better thing for it to say to create a casual, super comfy weekend outfit. I went ahead and added a black belt with some gold details to accentuate my waistline. I opted for a pair of sneakers, and I also folded up the bottom of the jeans to give it a bit more of a street-style vibe. A black crossbody bag finished up the look.
For the last look, I paired the jeans with a fuchsia top that has some beautiful mesh-style poofy sleeves. I love how this top stands out and really makes a statement. Wearing it makes me feel happy and positive. I added a pair of transparent high-heeled sandals to give the look even more of a dressed-up vibe. I finished the outfit off with a white belt and a white bag in a quilted style; it’s always good to coordinate your accessories.
Those are our five looks; I hope that you like them. Whether you want to dress the jeans down for a casual weekend look or dress them up to wear on a dinner date, there are so many directions that you can go in when it comes to styling these pants. What type of wash do you prefer to wear - darker or lighter?
