The next big non–skinny jeans trend is here, and it couldn’t be chicer. While skinny jeans will truly never die, nor do we want them to, we’ve spotted several emerging denim trends that are pretty much the antithesis of skinnies. We’ve already mentioned how flares and loose jeans are on the rise, and, well, we’re adding another of these non-skinny styles to the top of our lists: high-rise wide-leg jeans.
These are full-length jeans with a trouser-like wide leg and a high rise. We know that wide-leg jeans can be intimidating if you’re not used to wearing them already, which is why we’re here to give you some outfit inspiration. Some of the standout pairs defining the trend are by Frame and Agolde, which celebs and their stylists alike are keen on, as well as high street styles from & Other Stories and M&S, a Who What Wear editor favourite.
To highlight this chic new denim trend, we rounded up the freshest wide-leg-jeans outfits that fashion people are wearing now and included our favourite pairs to try out.
