These Are The Best Wide Leg Jeans We’ve Found In Australia

They'll be THE style of the season.

The reign of the skinny leg jeans is well and truly over, making way instead for relaxed and wide leg cuts.

The best style of denim for a laid-back look, these were practically made to be worn with a pair of chic sandals through spring or heeled boots in winter. 

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.

What body type should wear wide-leg jeans?

There’s no right or wrong when it comes to jean silhouettes anymore. However, people with wider hips and thighs might feel more comfortable in loose-fit and baggy styles. Wide-leg jeans often come in various lengths – look for ankle or crop styles if you’re on the shorter side or let full-length bootcut fits show off long legs.

Are wide-leg jeans in style in 2024?

Wide-leg jeans have been trending for a while now. This season, there’s a penchant for even wider, baggier silhouettes. Balance the proportions by wearing oversized styles with slim-fit or cropped tops.
