Wide-Legged Denim

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhy is hitting favourite shops in other countries always such a thrill? The possibility that you might find something you wouldn’t have back home, seeing things with fresh eyes? I always score good when I visit a Portugal Zara and these denim culotte flares are no exception… 

The whole wide-leg come-back is working really well for me. Why? Because my hips are quite narrow which when emphasised and my slightly more athlethic legs hidden is an overall more balanced look. Even in my teens, I knew a neat hip and wide leg was a good option for me. Of course, then the skinny took over our lives, and I’ve gone through phases of loving them and hating them – but then nothing beats a torn-up pair of black skinnies with Converse, does it? However, combine the breeziness of a wide-leg for hotter days and the flattering shape, well, it’s win-win really. And such statement denim only needs a white tee, pair of birks and tan bag to come whole.

Love this look, want to wear it everyday! But more Portugal outfits to come, the kind of relaxed, slightly boho garb you go for come sun and holidays. Whoopee! Spring is bringing out the inner child full of glee in me. Time to indulge and enjoy!

  1. Love this outfit! I’ve been holding off from the wide denim cropped look as I wasn’t sure it would suit me, even though I’ve seen some good pieces out there at H&M and Marks and Spencer, etc. But I have to say you make this look seem effortless and I’m more than a little tempted to have a rethink!

    1. Thankyou! def give it a go 🙂 let me know how you find it! so freeing to get out of skinnies!

  2. Absolutely looooove!!

    I bought these culottes too- but they deffo don’t look like this on me :((

    Agreed- Zara is always more exciting in Portugal and Spain (and more importantly- cheaper!!)

    1. Eek, good luck on the MG ebay – I always make myself wait right up until the end to place my bid, nerve wracking! Have you seen a neater fitting pair, not so flared and wide, but frayed at the end on ASOS? They might work better? https://www.asos.com/asos/asos-denim-tailored-wide-leg-pant-co-ord-in-mid-wash-with-raw-hem/prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=4975995&clr=Midwashblue&SearchQuery=denim+jeans+&pgesize=204&pge=0&totalstyles=472&gridsize=3&gridrow=28&gridcolumn=3

  3. Those look like some amazingly comfortable denim pants! Perfect for casual weekends & lazing around in, I absolutely love this outfit! That bag is amazing btw, I love you have a brown one instead of the popular black. It really goes well with the casual look.

    1. Thankyou! Yes, am a big fan of tan bags, think they’re so classic! 🙂 Although I do have my eye on the mini bucket in black, eek!
