After seasons of skinnies, it’s nice to see the wide leg jean make a return. Though I don’t believe the skinny jean is going anywhere anytime soon, it is nice to have options (a girl’s gotta have options, afterall). The wide leg, trouser, and bootcut jean are much more universally flattering and can balance out a more pear shaped figure. They’re also great because they can be dressed up and dressed down with just a few simple tweaks and accessories.
