Wide leg jeans have recently made a comeback. Retailers everywhere are carrying this style right now. From high-end designers to budget-friendly brands, there is an option for everyone.

Everlane is no exception and is one of my favorite places to buy jeans. They have one of the best denim selections of any retailer. And many of their jeans are made from organic cotton.

I recently purchased the Way-High Sailor Jeans from Everlane. This is a baggy pair of jeans, and I love how versatile and comfortable they are. Whether you are looking to dress them up or keep them casual, these jeans can do it all.

Denim is fairly universal. So despite the oversized style of wide leg jeans, they absolutely can be dressed up to create a chic and classic look. 

Choosing the right blouse, layers, shoes, and accessories can transform almost any pair of jeans. Opting for simple and stylish neutrals to pair with wide leg jeans will make the jeans stand out.

Here are two ways to dress up wide leg jeans that you can try this spring.

Wide Leg Jeans with a Black Turtleneck and Boots

Black is classic and elevates any style. When I am looking to dress up a pair of jeans (or otherwise casual pair of pants), my go-to is always a black blouse or blazer. For this outfit, I paired a black turtleneck and black boots with the Way-High Sailor Jeans from Everlane.

You can wear this classic outfit as an everyday look, a date night outfit, or even for a coffee or brunch date with friends. Black is very versatile and can transform any outfit.

Wide Leg Jeans with a Neutral Camisole and Sandals

Another way to dress up wide leg jeans is to pair them with a cream, white, or neutral camisole and heeled sandals. For this outfit, I paired a neutral washable silk and nude sandals with the Way-High Sailor Jeans from Everlane.

Adding delicate gold jewelry to this outfit will instantly elevate the look. Either a simple gold necklace or layering several necklaces will pair nicely with the lower neckline of a silk camisole. If you are in the market for delicate gold jewelry, I recommend checking out Uncommon James or Ava Hope Designs (on Etsy).

My absolute favorite delicate gold necklace to pair with most outfits is the Mixed Emotions necklace by Uncommon James.

For this casual look, I paired the Way-High Sailor Jeans from Everlane with a striped blouse from Ann Taylor and white sneakers by A New Day at Target. This specific shirt is no longer available, but a striped collared shirt like this one from Amazon would pair nicely with wide leg jeans.

The best part about wide leg jeans is that they are loose-fitting and so comfortable. I highly recommend investing in a pair this spring, especially the Way-High Sailor Jeans from Everlane. But there are so many options to choose from out there.

If you are looking for a similar budget-friendly pair, I recommend the Women’s High-Rise Wide Leg Jeans by Universal Thread at Target. I have tried them on, and they are comfortable. However, I do not personally own a pair.
