    1. A cropped pair of wide-leg jeans to easily put your best white sneakers on display — and since it comes with a button-up closure you can avoid that embarrassing moment when someone says "Hey, your fly is down."

    2. Some simple, high-rise, wide-leg jeans with roomy legs because there's nothing worse than a pair of jeans that feels less like an item of clothing and more like another layer of skin.

    6. A pair of white wide-leg jeans because you simply can't go wrong with this summertime classic. The bright white denim wash brings a clean feel and will make any statement top really pop.

    Promising review: "These fit perfectly and look super cute! I usually wear a tall but decided to go with the regular length so I wouldn't be stepping on the wide leg bottoms. The regular length was perfect for my 33" inseam legs." –Deb M

    Get it from Banana Republic for $31.99+ (originally $79.99; available in sizes 24–35, petite, regular, and long lengths. 

    9. A colorful pair of vintage-inspired wide jeans to cheer up the denim section of your closet, which has been looking a little *blue* lately.

    Promising review: "Do you want your butt to look good? Then just do it. These are super cute, comfy, and have some stretch. I was worried they'd run too small in the inseam (inducing some 'c–toe,' if you know what I mean) but they have a nice stretch to them to avoid any public display. The color is less purple than I thought, more of a grayish/purple tone, but they go with everything. Love the crop too, they feel on-trend and not too wide-legged like I should be carrying a skateboard and a chain wallet. I'm usually a 26 in Madewell, and stuck to that size." –KAGEY

    Get it from Madewell for $138 (available in sizes 23–33 and three colors).

    10. A wide-leg cargo jean with pockets — like six *deeeeeep* pockets you can basically ditch your purse for since you'll be able to store everything you need in these.

    11. A pair of denim bloomers reviewers have literally compared to pajama pants they're that comfortable. Designed with an elastic band, your sweatpants will definitely be giving these the side-eye after you replace them with these.

    12. A pair of wide-leg jeans in black that reach totally tuckable heights and can be dressed up for work or down paired with your ridiculously cozy sherpa jacket.

    13. A pair of patched wide-leg jeans we dare you to try and not make a statement in. The mix and match denim feature raw edges and a stretchy denim we'd proudly describe as "Da bomb."

    14. A classic pair of wide-leg jeans reviewers are absolutely obsessed with for its comfy fabric, deep blue shade, and straight leg fit that creates a clean finished look.

    15. A bell-bottom wide-leg jean that is totally far out in style (and width) — and since it's made with a soft stretchy material you may not even want to change out of when you get home.

    16. A wide-leg jean we're totally buggin' over with its ripped knees and high-waisted fit — just grab your closest shoulder purse and you'll have the ultimate '90s fit.

    Promising review: "I love these! Nice, thick jeans that sinch a little at the waist. I'm a 28 waist, 39 hips, 140-lbs – I'm consistently a medium and these fit perfectly and are comfortable. I did hours of research and these do not disappoint." –Cristina

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 16 styles). 

    18. A deep blue wide-leg jean with clean lines and a high waist fit that'll have your friends saying, "Oh, snap!" Roll the bottoms for a more relaxed fit or keep it relaxed for a more ~polished~ look.

    19. A pair of tie-dye wide-leg jeans so fun and ~groovy~, they may or may not make you want to chuck up a peace sign at any given moment. You could also throw in a pair of go-go boots for additional grooviness.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $85 (available in sizes 24–34). 

    20. A pair of denim wide-leg trousers with crisp lines and flat pockets that create a more ~sophisticated~ look without sacrificing comfort. Because jeans can be comfortable and chic (right??).

    21. A pair of customizable wide-leg jeans you can actually wear year-round using the buttons along the sides. Keep the legs fully buttoned for a classic jean fit and as the temps rise, simply unbutton it for the most breathability.

    22. A pair of wide-leg jeans with a stretchy denim material and a super high waist that aim to give you legs for days.

    23. A skater-inspired wide-leg jean you can style with the best black crop tops, which will help highlight the high-waisted fit next time you hit your next half-pipe.

    24. A pair of belted wide-leg jeans with a high-rise fit to create the ~ultimate~ business casual look. It won't be work to put together an outfit with these either, as it's versatile enough to style with your best white T-shirts.

    25. A pair of green wide-leg jeans featuring a relaxed baggy appearance to add a pop of color and maybe even ditch your comfy pairs of pants for.

    26. A tried-and-true pair of "high-loose" wide-leg jeans by Levi's that are aptly named for their high-rise waistline and baggy (but not *too* baggy) legs. Your closet might actually thank you for this addition!

    Promising review: "Perfect jeans! I was hesitant to buy these without trying them on with the high price, but I'm glad I did. Also glad I listened to some reviewers about sizing down. I am between a 24 and a 25 and went with the 24 which fit perfect." –Barbara

    Get it from Levi's for $90.98+ (originally $108; available in sizes 23–34, two lengths, and three washes). 

    27. Some wide-leg jeans with subtle stitching details on the legs, which makes them an easy item to grab when you want to spice up your look but are still attached to a jeans-and-tee type of fit.

    Promising review: "Thank goodness, I finally found a pair of jeans that aren't skin tight. Love these jeans, and I wear them all the time. If they came in different colors, I'd buy more. I am 5' 7" and bought regular length." –Nancy B.

    Get it from Old Navy for $49.99 (available in sizes 00–30 and petite, regular, and tall lengths).
