Let me first go on record as saying I love a skinny jean. There is nothing that tucks into a boot better than a skinny jean. However, the one trend I’m most excited about for this spring and summer is wide legs.
They started coming into style last year so I gave them a shot. And, as it turns out, I love me some wide leg pants:
I love them in wide leg ankle length, like the above pair. And I love them in culotte/gaucho form, like this thrifted pair:
Now, they are not, perhaps, as figure-flattering as some other items in my closet. But, I’ve realized that figure-flattery isn’t high on my list of priorities when I get dressed. Is it because, as I get older, I have less of a figure to flatter? It’s possible; but mostly, comfort and joy are just prioritized higher for me.
