Trend Alert: Wide Legged Jeans!

Wahoo! As I predicted, the skinny jean backlash has begun and wide legged jeans are on the rise. Don't get me wrong - I have warmed up to the skinny silhouette, but I am a 70's girl at heart and love the elongating look of a wide legged pant. Also, I am tall so it makes my legs look super long. But for non-tall gals, it created a long, lean look so really, this is good news for all. With New York Fashion week officially under way, I wonder how many wide legs we're going to see on the runways for Fall 2007. Here is Mandy Moore from this week's Life & Style wearing some fab flares at the Sundance Film Festival.

To see a couple of my flare leg picks,

Hudson
Wide Leg Tailor Jean
, $187.


LIPS
Collette in Dark Indigo
, $179.

I tried Genetic Denim wide leg jeans at Cusp and they were sooooooooo nice. altho...i still like my fitted jeans better. i'll probably invest in some wide legs tho. they're hot, esp the ones that have been seen on penelope cruz

I agree with mandiesoh - I am short and jeans that flare out at the knee look terrible on me because they make me look shorter. I thought wide leg jeans were more similar to a pair of trousers, a straight, long line coming from the widest part of the body (for women it's usually our hips). If I am wrong then I prefer straight leg - not necessarily skinny jeans - over flares.

I love "bellbottoms" or wide leg flared jeans!! theyre so cute. When you guys say skinny jeans do you mean like straight legged pants? i dont like them at all they dont look good on me at all....these pants are cute and im glad theyre out!!:-) *ash*

Yeah, I saw pics of Kate Moss a while back (I think they may have even been from London Fashion Week SS07) in which she was wearing wide legged jeans. I can't tell you how refreshing it was.

Last season it was leggings; this season it's back to a wide leg. The trends are hard to predict and can go from left to right!

YAY! I love wide leg jeans! Skinny jeans suck because most people can't wear them(like me for example). So glad they're back in style.

I love a flared pant. They are so much more flattering to most body types then the skinny legged variety.

Wide/flare jeans are very retro. Just like the good ol days **~~Everyone who's anyone has been on sesame street.~~**

Those are all ugly, except the black ones and they need to come in just a tad on that ridiculous flare!
