If the word “wide-leg” still brings to mind the shapeless styles of the ’90s or the comically flared bell bottoms of the ’60s, know that today’s most popular options combine the comfort of the oversized silhouette with tailored lines and fashion-forward shapes. See, for example, Tibi’s Sid jeans, which I’ve been eyeing ever since the New York-based brand’s spring ’23 catwalk show. Featuring a loose fit and panel detailing, the jeans (that come in new colorways for fall and in petite and regular size options) taper into a balloon-like shape that gets tighter around the bottom, making them versatile enough to wear with casual sneakers and ballet flats as stiletto sandals and pointy-toe boots.

How to Style Wide-Leg Jeans With a Blazer

For a day at the office, I copied the styling from Tibi’s runway show and tucked a transitional blazer into the waistline which I then belted. To make wide-leg jeans even more work-appropriate, pair the look with a pointy pump or boot. To avoid looking too corporate, I opted for a zebra-print mule and a colorful bag.

How to Style Wide-Leg Jeans With a Button-Down

To run weekend errands, embrace the comfort of the loose silhouette (skinny jeans could never) and add to it with an equally oversized button-down, a buttery soft cashmere sweater, and a pair of reliable sneakers.

How to Style Wide-Leg Jeans With a Going-Out Top

I am not big mini skirts or dresses, so I’ve been loving the comeback of the going-out top, which I took out for a spin with the denim. For a more festive feeling, complete the look with statement accessories like a sparkly bag and a fun shoe and top with a knit duster (I am currently on the hunt for a vintage one from Missoni) for those crisp autumn nights.

How to Style Wide-Leg Jeans With a Blouse

To elevate the wide-leg, baggy jeans for a nice dinner or special occasion, pair the utilitarian denim style with silky, luxe fabrics; feminine details like a pussy-cat bow and florals; and sharp “I mean business” footwear.

How to Style Wide-Leg Jeans With a T-shirt

I grew up in a time when low-rise, baggy jeans were all the rage. To nod to the style’s throwback roots, I paired it with other favorites from the era (see: Prada nylon bag and cropped tee). To take the look into fall territory and give it a more grown-up feel, I topped it off with a leather bomber and chunky clogs.
