8 Wide-Leg-Pant Outfits That Will Make You Want to Ditch Your Skinny Jeans ASAP

As someone who has only recently come back around to the idea of skinny jeans, you can imagine how this latest curveball has rocked my world. For so long I thought it was all about straight legs (and maybe slight flares). Then I got pushed back in the direction of ultra-tight pants, and now I have wide legs to throw into the mix. It’s a lot to take in, but we don’t really have a choice when the evidence speaks for itself as it does in today’s case.

Not only have I rounded up eight impressive (but approachable) outfits featuring wide-leg pants to inspire you, but I’ve also included shopping for the back-from-the-dead basic all under $35. Before you ask how that’s possible, let me remind you about our very own Who What Wear collection for Target, where affordable fashion is the name of the game. So without further ado, to see the looks for yourself and get some shopping in along the way, just keep scrolling.
