If you had the foresight to keep your wide-leg pants in the back of your closet since the last time they were trending, know that it’s time to dust them off: Even a cursory glance at the major runways in recent seasons will show you that the baggy, ’90s-era low-rise style is decidedly back — and wider than ever.
This season, the best wide-leg pants are roomy, comfortable, and versatile. Still, it’s possible to get in on the trend without feeling like you’re wearing your pop’s pants: A pair of timeless, wide-leg wool trousers from Banana Republic’s new spring collection will quickly feel like an office-ready staple when you pair them with a tailored button-down. Meanwhile, the right wide-leg jeans can moonlight as an on-trend alternative to joggers, especially if you style them with a cropped knit sweater or a traditional trench coat.
The Cropped Pants
The perfect weekend pant, this ultra-high, cropped silhouette is made from a super-soft cotton for a comfortable fit.
The Reverse Waistband Pants
Remember back in junior high when you’d buy pants or shorts two sizes too big and you had to roll the waistband? That’s also a trend now — and this pair of wide-leg pants proves it can look polished, too.
The Ultra Wide-Leg Pants
This ultra wide-leg pant’s exaggerated silhouette makes it look like a maxi skirt (except this one’s basically wind-proof.)
The Cargo Pants
Minimalists, look away! These hot pink cargo pants from Scandi brand ROTATE aren’t for the faint of heart. (That’s the fun of ‘em.)
Ditch your traditional joggers for wide-leg sweatpants. Wear these with a leather moto jacket and a baseball hat for weekend-ready look.
The Pleated Jeans
Never mind the trend cycle: Dark-wash wide-leg jeans are always in style. The high waist and deep pleats make these office-appropriate, too.
The Faux Leather Pants
Named after Copenhagen-based cool-girl Pernille Teisbaek, these faux-leather wide-leg pants are a great option for chillier spring days.
The Utility Pants
Diesel put a utilitarian spin on the wide-leg trend with these belted, sage-green pants. Style them with a thin-rib sweater and pointed-toe mules for a true ’90s-inspired look.
The Linen Pants
Dip your toe in the wide-leg trend with a pant that’s fitted through the hip and thigh, like this tuxedo-inspired linen trouser.
The Low-Rise Jeans
Size up in AGOLDE’s ever-popular baggy wide-leg jeans for a modern fit that sits just at the the hip.
The Jersey Pants
A basic wide-leg trouser is a must-have in any spring wardrobe.
The Deconstructed Jeans
The waist detailing and spliced pockets on these wide-leg, paneled jeans make them feel that much more special.
