Before I left New York City to spend some time in Europe, I had already noticed a strong denim trend on the streets and everywhere: the wide-legs and flares.
And now, traveling in Europe, specifically in Germany and Italy, I can confirm: the cropped wide-leg and flare jeans are a trend to keep on your radar. I see them also here everywhere. And in all colors and washes. Mainly in the lighter washes like off-white, ecru, beige, and in lighter wash denims.
I know from my collection previews that these are here to stay also for fall and winter. And yes, even in the lighter washes. Of course, blacks and darker blues are also going to be very much in demand in the colder seasons.
The cropped length is going to be super cool to show off your boots and platforms in the coming seasons. Remember, we’ve already confirmed that cowboy and chunky platform boots are already the next new thing, substituting our eternal sneakers. Like the sweats, sneakers are also something to remind us of that crazy lock-down time. And we are more than ready to leave these memories in the past.
Below you can find a roundup of – what I personally believe – are the best cropped wide-legs and flares available to shop for right now. And being that there are so many exciting new options available, I’ve also asked our team for their choices – Part 2 – coming up ASAP.
