The skinny jeans trend has been taking over our lives for the past few years. Even our cargos have been tapered down to unrealistically skinny proportions! Isn’t it about time we give our legs some breathing room, at least once in a while? Our skinnies will always be beloved by us, but sometimes a change of pace, or width in this case, is vital for our fashionable state of well-being.
A pair of wide-leg jeans can make all the difference in how you feel a certain day. It must be the freedom of movement that wide-leg jeans allow – much more than those skinny jeans that require us to suck in parts of bodies we never thought were possible to even suck in. Give your legs a break, and some much needed space, with some super extreme flares that look like they were plucked straight off that hippie girl in that classic Woodstock picture.
Wearing flared jeans doesn’t mean you have to go decked out in head-to-toe hippie style, though. This girl, snapped by Stockholm Streetstyle, manages to make her wide-leg jeans look more preppy and Parisian chic than flower child. With her classic striped tee, double breasted blazer, sleek leather belt, dapper hat, and oversized bib necklace, she takes the boho out of the jeans and replaces it with a city-girl-on-the-go aesthetic. Being chic and comfortable at the same time has never looked easier. Find out how to get the look below.
