Shoptometrist has great article on the barrage of wide leg jeans that are taking over 5th avenue. I recently bought a pair that I love but am still a skeptic.
When I bought my first pair of "wides" last fall, I felt as if I were swimming in the extra fabric, my legs unaccustomed to such freedom. It'll certainly take some time to adjust, and just as we experienced with the advent of skinny jeans, their wide-leg counterparts require a few more fitting room sessions before you find your match. Mine happens to be Anlo (whose lookbook consists almost entirely of wides), but there are definitely some other promising options. Styling note: unless you are very tall, please wear these with heels."
I hear ya sister. Farewell sweet skinny jean.
