Why I’m giving wide-leg denim a try…again

Dark Wash Wide Leg Denim

For me the wide-leg trend has been in and semi out so many times. This time around I was hesitant about doing it again. A sort of been there done that moment if you will. Yet, I gave it a try again since it has been highly requested. This time I went super casual with a gray tee shirt and leather jacket along with the denim. It is my go to with skinny jeans so I thought why not for a wide-leg style too.

Wide leg jeans definitely elongate the leg for a taller appearance.  That is a major plus for me. Adding pointed heels that just peek through on the bottom work best. These jeans are meant to be worn grazing the ground so only heels work in my mind. Overall I liked them and will give a few more pairings a try.
