A Stylist's Guide To Wide Leg Denim

A Stylist's Guide To Wide Leg Denim

If there’s one thing we love at CALEXICO, it’s denim in any form, so we religiously keep tabs on trends – what's hot, what’s new and what’s here to stay! Skinny jeans may be coming back with a vengeance in 2024, but we say long live the wide-leg silhouette!

Bulky and unflattering? We beg to differ! The shapeless cuts of the ‘90s have left the chat, making way for styles that marry a cool oversized fit with flattering lines. Tailored shapes provide all-day comfort and endless versatility to suit any figure, adding a subtle androgynous touch to your look.

Embrace the endless options to create your signature wide-leg denim look, from chic to relaxed that you can wear year-round! This is how we’re styling our current favourites to stay cool on a sweltering summer day or layered, for trips to colder destinations.

The Perfect All-Rounder You Can Wear Anywhere, With Anything

If you add just one wide-leg pair of jeans to your closet, make it Agolde’s Low-Slung Baggy Jean in Libertine. Don’t be fooled by the name – designed for comfort and style, these jeans hit the mark in every way: fit, feel and colour. It’s a big yes from us!

If you’re a high-waisted gal, try the Annina Jean in Tularose – the ultimate light-wash, straight jean. Did we mention it makes your butt look great?! Pair with a t-shirt, sneakers and a denim jacket to complete your look.

The Cool And Cuffed Pair That’ll Add An Edge To Any Look

We don’t like to pick favourites, but the Ayla Baggy Jean might be it. You can never have too many jeans, and this pair comes in countless shades to choose from. Wear uncuffed to its full length, as shown in the Tuxedo Skylights colourway, or fold up the hem to put an off-duty spin on your look.  
Let these Citizens of Humanity jeans make a statement on their own – highlight them with a tucked in, simple top to show off your figure. Grab a white pair for summer and add a dark wash version for cooler days – trust us, you won’t regret it!

Simple And Stunning Pairs That Pack a Punch

 Who said jeans can't be corporate? We love versatile jeans that will take you from the desk to dinner in the blink of an eye! 
Citizens of Humanity Paloma ticks all our boxes! Subtly referencing the early 2000s, they work with anything: Create a polished look with heels and a blazer, slung over your shoulders to head to your meeting, throw on with flats and a tee for school pickup in style, then dress them up with a glamorous top for a night out. 
Looking for a more extravagant cut? Ask and you shall receive the Loli Mid Rise Baggy Jean. Think Palazzo pants, but denim. The perfect excuse to take your platform heels for a spin!

We Can’t Go Past A Cropped Option, And Neither Should You!

Put a summery spin on your denim with the Harper Crop Jean in Moore. Cropped to hit just above the ankle, we know petites will love these too! You can literally pair any shoe with these mid-rise jeans: choose a heeled boot or a sleek sandal to create an illusion of height or dress them down with a chunky shoe or oversized shirt 
In the mood for something a little different? CALEXICO Director Nicky loves the Horshoe Jean and you will too. With a curved shape and a roomy fit, this oversized silhouette is best paired with a barely there slide to create a relaxed look with a stylish edge!

Welcome To The Dark Side Baby! 

Is there anything more sophisticated than dark denim?  
Our love for the relaxed rise Annina Jean knows no bounds, especially in this timeless black wash. Picture yourself jetting off to cooler destinations in this versatile pair - layer with knitwear, boots and a coat - perfection! 
We can’t go past a cropped option – wear the Gaucho Wide Leg Jean with a bodysuit and wedges to your next girls' lunch and watch the compliments roll in. You’re welcome.

Great denim is the foundation of any excellent wardrobe and once you’ve found your staples, you’ll want them to last forever. Always wash them inside out, on a cold cycle, to prevent fading or shrinking!
