Remember a few years ago when skinny jeans were everywhere? Well, that time has come and gone, as many celebrities have saved the trend (for now) and are opting for a more baggy, retro look instead.
That’s right, ’70s-inspired flare and wide-leg jeans are taking Hollywood by storm once again, with plenty of stars wearing them repeatedly in recent months. Weather go out for coffee In New York, Jennifer Lawrence she wore wide-leg denim with sandals and a black cropped top. Jennifer Lopez She also tapped into the wide-legged style, pairing it with a navy top (and pink stilettos, for that matter). And both kendall jenner and Miranda Kerr opted for some flared jean earlier this fall.
So why is Hollywood obsessed with flared and wide-leg jeans this season? Our best guess is that these retro style trends are very flattering and comfortable. Flared jeans tend to be slimmer at the top but get wider at the bottom to form a bell shape that adds length to the legs. Wide-leg jeans also enhance your shape, but are a little baggier through the thigh for comfort.
Whether you choose to wear them with comfy sneakers and cozy sweaters or combat boots and silky tops, wide leg and flare jeans are two trends that are here to stay this winter, and we found plenty of options on sale at Madewell, Nordstrom, and Amazon before Black Friday.
