The anti-skinny jean movement is still in full swing, and shows literally no sign of slowing down any time soon. In 2023, we’ve even surpassed classic straight-legs and it’s looser, baggier wide-leg styles that are leading the charge as the coolest jeans to own right now. And I’m not just talking about the styles on the designer catwalks. By now, as I’m sure you’ve probably noticed, chic wide-leg jeans are cropping up all over the high street, from more relaxed baggy styles to smarter versions.
I think it’s fair to say the whole Who What Wear team have been converted, and lately we’ve all been on the lookout for the perfect pair to add to our autumn capsules. So, when we came across The Wide Leg Jeans for £35 at good old Marks & Spencer recently, you could say we hit the jackpot. The jeans are arguably the perfect shape—wide but not overwhelmingly baggy, with a nipped in high waist that balances out the looser leg and flatters all body shapes. They also come in no less than seven different colours, three different length options and up to a size UK24. Plus, they’re made using recycled cotton re-spun from cotton textile waste—all part of M&S’s commitment to the Better Cotton Initiative.
