To say that 2018 is the year of sartorial excess would not be an overstatement. From the revival of the 80s to Balenciaga’s embellished Crocs, fashion’s taken a ‘go big or go home’ attitude this year. One piece that’s been on the style radar this year is a pair of wide-legged ‘hip-hop’ jeans straight from the 90s. You may depend on a pair of skinny jeans to get you through thick and thin, but trying a new style every now and then doesn’t hurt. And that’s true even if the said style is so different that it might as well be the opposite of a pair of skinny jeans. Wide-legged denims are chic and they don’t make you feel uncomfortable in the heat. Sounds like something you’d want to try? Here are three outfit ideas featuring a pair of wide-legged jeans…
Team this season’s major trends by styling a checkered shirt with wide-legged jeans. Try print on print by accessorising this look with a floral printed backpack. If you want to try something edgier, then style the shirt with a leather baseball cap and embellished boots.
Wear It To Work
If effortless, contemporary silhouettes are your thing, then we suggest you style a wrap top with wide-legged denims.This is a perfect workwear look, especially on a Friday. Accessorise with kitten heels and a timeless wrist watch for a chic ensemble. Colour block by styling a burgundy tote with the emerald wrap top. You can also try this look when you’re on a vacation; sport a satin kimono-styled blouse in a tropical print.
The Easygoing Sunday Look
Give the classic blue jeans and white tee a spin of athleisure. We suggest you style this with a longline shrug and a pair of sneakers. This serves perfect as a casual daytime look if you team up the jeans and tank top with a fanny pack, sneakers as well as round, mirrored sunglasses.
