After several years of skinny jeans ruling the fashion world, wide leg jeans are making a comeback. Although I definitely don't want to see skinny jeans go, I love mines dearly, I do welcome alternative options.
With so many different shapes, washes and styles; it is easy for every body type to find a perfect pair of wide leg jeans. They look great with a tucked in blouse and belt, or you can wear a casual T-shirt for a more effortless chic look.
I love how they do wonders for my height.
Definitely wear heels, platforms or wedges when you're sporting this look to give you that slim silhouette. Flats will simply not work unless you are already very tall. Add a slim-fitted top to balance out the volume on the bottom or a soft flowy blouse, like I've done here. Without the blazer I can add a belt to cinch the waist to create a hour-glass figure.
My adoration for these jeans comes from my love affair for all things '70s-inspired. I definitely don't think you have to wait until the weather is warmer to try this look out. All you need is a pair of roomy jeans, your favorite chunky heels and a button-down jacket or leather bomber and you are ready to go.
Funny story about this pashmina - I don't know if you ladies watch "Friends" but there was one episode where Rachel's sister, Jill (played by Reese Witherspoon) bought a whole bunch of stuff with her dad's credit card and so when Rachel came to confront her Jill gave all her purchases to Ross. When Rachel asked Ross what he bought, he pulled out a pashmina. Rachel, knowing that it was not his, asked him what it was and he rubbed it on his face and said it was a rug - LOL. It was the funniest thing ever. After watching that episode and laughing over it with hubby, he went out and bought me this pashmina with a note saying "To my lovely wife - hope this "rug" keeps you warm." ;) Have a great weekend ladies!
