The Top 20 Wide-Legged Jeans & Pants to Help Get a Leg up On the Flattering New Trouser Trend. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG
While skinny jeans have always sounded like a great idea, they are simply not for all body types. If you're too non-Kate Moss, the silhouette can be less than flattering by emphasizing just what you don't want emphasized.
The antidote, however, is the elegant wide leg pant. These pants not only demand the wearer to slip into heels, which make any fashionista look more toweringly fabulous - always in fashion! - they also encourage the wearing of more dressy, ladylike tops, jewelry & accessories...all of which add up to an overall picture of timeless, effortless chic.

I'm so having flash backs here! I just got in on the tail end of bell bottoms. I had the coolest pair of Levi's back then. [sigh]

As a straight guy in the fashion industry, I have a uniquely male perspective on this trend. It's a god send. Trust me, wide legged pants do wonders for a woman's lower half. They make your butt look great.
What's more, skinny jeans look like they'd be hard to get off, and frankly who wants that??
