Wide Leg Jeans Are The Supermodel Approved Denim Trend That Will Have You Ditching Low-Rise Forever

JNCO jeans have just been given a modern makeover.

By Ava Gilchrist
For Y2K sympathisers, wide leg jeans will always be synonymous with the ultra-baggy JNCO style that had the mid-90s in a chokehold.
However, it seems that the celebrity style set are hell bent on reviving this nostalgic style, with the likes of Bella Hadid, Nicole Kidman and Elsa Hock all sporting the cut in the past week. Coincidence? We think not.
Bella Hadid leaving the FW/22 Balenciaga Haute Couture show.
Taking cues from the off-duty street style of legendary supermodels like Cindy Crawford, Bella Hadid has proven that a wide leg doesn't necessarily have to mean you're a bit dag.
On the contrary, these styles are the preferred choice for luxury fashion houses like Balenciaga and denim darling Diesel.
Since the internet proclaimed skin-tight and ultra skinny denim dead, wide leg and slouchy styles in both high, mid and low rise have been welcomed into our wardrobes as our new staple.
Frankly, after two years of wearing nothing but sweats, we're embracing this relaxed and oversized silhouettes with welcome arms.
Adopting a looser fit doesn't make finding the perfect pair any easier, however. Choosing the correct wide leg style can either see you looking like you've just stepped off the runway, or have just raided an estate sale or second-hand store.
When it comes to choosing the right pair, we're taking cues from Nicole Kidman and opting for a mid-rise style that sits at the waist and wont swallow you whole.
As for styling? We'll be following in Elsa Hosk's preppy footsteps and pairing our personal pair with the it item of the season: a motorcycle jacket.
Below, behold the celebrity-approved and supermodel-endorsed wide leg jeans that are worthy of a place in your winter wardrobe.
