70s Retro Wide Leg Denim: What We’re Wearing

A 70s retro wide leg – like I mentioned yesterday in the Street Style post – has managed to really grow on me to the point where I wear a pair almost weekly. It’s a great look to wear around town and something feels so right about it at this moment.

I was perusing the internet and found a blog called “this free bird.” In her most recent post she was wearing an amazing pair of Free People wide leg denim trousers pictured above. I really applaud her style. I love to see others denim enthusiast and how they put a look together. It fits well with the fact that just the other day, Jennine and I were wearing this style too.

Jennine is wearing Goldsign Lotus wide legs, another denim brand to covet. I love the seam down the middle. It really elongates the leg and the wash is another one of those washes that allows you to get creative elsewhere with your ensemble.

Besides the fact that I was having one of those frumpy days, I picked a pair of J Brand Kiki high rise flare jeans – which is my favorite for basic blank pallets. You can really just throw on anything with a pair like this.

    Thanks so much for featuring me with you, ladies!! I am loving the versions each of you are wearing, too. As much as I love my skinny jeans it’s been nice to have a little more swoosh in my step lately.
