I never thought I could pull off wide leg denim. I would see those tall, skinny French-like girls on the street rockin’ a wide leg and think, “I love those pants, but they would never work on me.” Turns out, I was, for the first time ever in my WHOLE LIFE, wrong. On impulse I tried this pair from the Who What Wear Collection at Target, and I’ve never looked back. Well, first I bought the 43 other things in my cart that I didn’t need. But THEN I never looked back. Keep scrolling for 6 other pairs I’m sure you’ll love (most under $100)! And if you’re not already following me on instagram (@thechampagnechic), we need to talk.
To kickstart your search, a few tips to find the perfect pair for you:
- Go for higher waist. The waistband should hit at your narrowest part, flattering your shape, and balancing the wide leg.
- Avoid pockets if they aren’t cut right. If you try them on and the pockets bunch or don’t lay flat – RUN. Pockets that pop out will accentuate your hips, but not in the sexy-I’ve-gotta-hit-the-club way.
- Make sure the length is right. Get a pair that hit right below the calf to avoid being overwhelmed by the wide leg, while putting those lady-like ankles on display. It’s also the perfect topper for fun shoes.
