Denim Goes Wide For Spring


Now, I know that I’ve made comments about how too many designers have taken influence from the senventies lately, but that’s because they have! Everyone from Dries Van Noten, Derek Lam, and Elie Tahari has drawn inspiration from the era. Some good, some bad, and some too literal. But I have to say that one thing did stay consistent collection to collectino: the fresh yet old-school vibe of the wide-leg trouser.

With that said, move over skinny jeans, there’s a new look in town and it isn’t skin tight!

Skinnies have dominated the fashion world for what seems like forever, so in true fashion fashion there was bound to be a change. I think that we can all agree the transition started with the introduction of the boyfriend jean and then the harem pant, which gave way to a more relaxed and wider-set silhouette. But let’s be honest, everyone knows that they–as well as the skinny–are not always the most flattering.

So, what better timing for the come-back of the wide-leg trouser, right? Unlike the more slouchy look of the harem pant and the overall baggy aesthetic of the boyfriend jean, the wide-leg has a more streamlined and sophisticated look, not to mention that it flatters a lot more different body types. The higher rise helps to define the waist while the wide cut elongates the legs, making for a really graceful but sexy silhouette.

Now I’m not saying that this doesn’t have the potential to go completely wrong. I mean, too much of anything can result in some pretty bad looks. But done in a clean, and–as I always say–simple yet effective way the wide-leg has the potentiality of being the next ‘must have’ denim style.

The question is, are you ready to ditch your skin tight companions? What do you think? Is it really time to say goodbye to your skinnies?
