Cream wide-leg jeans
Be it bootcut, flared or wide-leg, the trouser silhouette to be seen in this season is not a narrow one. Many have been influenced by the massive seventies revival. Some have a desire for a more relaxed style of tailoring- something less formal than traditional suiting but more formal than yoga pants. My reason? I simply wanted a pair of cream wide-leg jeans to wear as an alternative to my usual blue straight-leg jeans. These are by Danish brand Ganni via The Outnet. They’ve sold out now but there are countless similar styles around.
A wide leg is extremely flattering because it makes the waistline look relatively narrower. Not only that, the shape lends itself to leg-elongating footwear like wedges or platforms; which will of course will lengthen the silhouette.
I’ve styled mine in two different ways, albeit with the same neutral colour palette. The first look is perfect for running errands. Sneakers and this pouf sleeve sweatshirt, (*60% off at Me + Em), make for a comfortable, practical ensemble yet it looks pulled-together and effortlessly stylish.
The second look is a little more dressed-up. I’m wearing flatforms, a pretty blouse and a stack of bracelets. I absolutely love this outfit- it’s feminine, chic and understated with a nod to the seventies. Perfect for coffee, shopping or a lunch date.
I envisage wearing these jeans with animal print, with stripes and with this season’s pallette of zesty brights. These are my new wardrobe hero.
