The best thing about wide leg jeans are their ability to chameleon. Team with a plain white tank and you've got your entire weekend wardrobe sorted. Level up with a blouse or oversized shirt and you've got effortlessly smart-casual for the office.
We love wide leg jeans in vintage-wash blue, faded denim and cream. Here are our top picks to shop now.
1. Best Vintage-Style Wide Leg Jeans: Outland Denim
Last year it was Outland Denim's collaboration with Montana Lower that had us adding to cart, this year it's their collab with Spell that has us hypnotised.
They're the perfect high-waisted cut, somewhere between wide and flare leg jeans.
Best All-Rounder Wide Leg Jeans: Rolla's
With a length that will skim ankles on tall women and just hit the floor if you're more petite, Rolla's Sailor jeans are a great all-rounder - they have the details to make them feel more work-appropriate (and a wash that's dark enough to not feel too faded), with a comfortable, high-rise waist.
Best Affordable Wide Leg Jeans: Cotton On
Cotton On have come through with their denim collection for 2021, with all the right cuts featured (and, in great news, flattering modern cuts for curvy ladies, too).
Their wide leg jeans feel great on, and are wonderful if you're a tall woman as they have long leg length.
Best Affordable Wide Leg Jeans: Glassons
We couldn't decide when it came to affordable jeans, so we had to include two - the Glassons wide leg jean is the perfect cropped cut - not too short, but with its ankle-skimming length, looks great with heels and boots.
Best Fashion Wide Leg Jeans: Scanlan & Theodore
Scanlan & Theodore have released the perfect 70s jeans this season.
A classic blue that are straight through the leg and flare out at the end, making for a super flattering cut, these are at the top of our wishlists.
Best Dark Denim Wide Leg Jeans: Ginger & Smart
If you're after a darker wash when it comes to wide leg jeans, Ginger & Smart have your back.
Their Annie jeans are a wonderfully classic deep blue, perfect for more dressed up denim looks.
Best Black Wide Leg Jeans: Dr Denim
With the washed black denim hue and the ankle crop, these jeans are both super comfortable and a great choice if blue denim isn't your thing.
Best Designer Jeans: The Row
We are loving the denim cuts from The Row right now - these super wide, super baggy jeans are the 90s denim we never knew we needed.
Best Light Denim Wide Leg Jeans: Ksubi
Ksubi do some of the best washed out blue denim we've ever seen. It's that fine line between white and baby blue, and they nail it.
These wide leg jeans are on the narrower side if you're still struggling to let go of your skinny jean era with an on-trend undone button look.
