Before you stop reading this— every single pair of wide leg denim featured in this article will accentuate and make your butt look good.

Because vainly, that's every woman's first concern about the trend— or are we just speaking for ourselves here? . . .

Wide Leg Denim and How To Wear It

This is a "trend" that never really goes away. One minute it's all every jean company is featuring and the next minute the focus is on super high-rise skinny jeans.

Fashion always comes full circle and right now is a hot time to be seen wearing a chic pair of well-fitting wide leg jeans in a sea of skinny jeans.

Here are our favorite wide leg styles and how to wear them:

The Rigid Cotton Trend

In case you haven't noticed, right now there is a focus on 100% cotton (or at least 98%+ cotton) jeans, and it's a prime time to try the trend in a wide leg version. Why? Because it's often tight, a little stiff, and holds its shape. Imagine those characteristics in a skinny jean? It's a little tough to handle at first if you're used to wearing stretch denim.


We actually love how the model here is wearing sneakers and wide jeans. Re/Done is a LA brand that focuses on reconstructing old Levi's and nailing street style with every pair created.

We recommend wearing these extreme wide leg jeans with sneakers and a t-shirt bodysuit à la Re/Done.

AG Adriano Goldschmied

Comprised of 98% cotton, this pair of wide leg jeans has a little bit of stretch.

We are a fan of the light pink color, and we imagine wearing these wide leg cropped jeans with a pair of patent leather Christian Louboutin pumps and an oversized white button down blouse. Yes, two oversized items make a right and our top stylist says to make sure to only tuck in one side of the blouse in the front.

The Traditional Blue Jean Wide Leg Denim

Just what casual days call for, it's always appropriate to leave the house wearing a pair of perfect fit blue denim.


Slightly darker in style, this pair of high-rise wide leg denim can be your go-to pair of wide leg pants.

While we don't love this pair with heels, we'd prefer to rock this pair of GRLFRND jeans with a pair of funky glitter Golden Goose sneakers.

Wear this look with an oversized white t-shirt like MSGM's fun 'wow' tee.

Stella McCartney

Famed London designer Stella McCartney has a knack for fashion. We're sure you've already heard about this eco-conscious brand and how it plans to help reduce fashion's environmental footprint, and if you want to know more about eco-friendly fashion brands, read our article on How To Shop The Best Sustainable Clothing Brands.

Just because it's hyper-trending right now, not all of your denim has to be high-waist. This pair of wide leg trousers would be great for the 4th of July if you're into situational dressing OR it's just super chic for any occasion.

We'd wear this pair with sneakers and an oversized crop top (just hitting at the waistband) like this gray one from James Perse.

How To Wear Wide Leg Jeans With Heels

Besides the pink denim outfit with the matching pink Christian Louboutin pumps, we haven't given you any outfit ideas with regards to heels or strappy sandals.

The good news is that it's a very achievable look, especially with a pair of wide leg crop jeans. However, it's also very elegant to wear wide-leg jeans to the floor.

Here are our favorite pairs of wide leg denim to wear with heels:


French brand Jacquemus bleeds Summertime chicness and this pair of black cropped jeans is the epitome of Paris street style. Obviously we are into any pair of strappy stiletto sandals with this look, as seen on the model.


Scandinavian brand Ganni is a newer brand that should definitely be on your radar for affordable fashions. We love this bleached pair of wide jeans by the brand and we'd wear the look with a short sleeved sweater (tucked in) and a pair of pumps.

Obviously, for outfit ideas, our stylist came up with a timeless yet fashion forward look, including this orange Frame Denim ribbed sweater and SJP t-strap denim pumps.

Could Wide Leg Denim Be Your Perfect Fit?

Flattering for every body type, wide leg jeans have a certain allure about them that people can't quite put their finger on. But we know the deal, the best brands, how to style them, and why they look hot. They are tight in the tush area, giving the appearance of a tiny waist and they give curves to those who need them and sometimes hide curves for those who don't want to accentuate them all the time.

We love them dressy, casual, or somewhere in between. On days that your skinny jeans aren't cutting it, throw on a pair of wide leg jeans and see how you feel!
