After years of skinny-jean supremacy, the wide-leg look is making a return for Spring/Summer 2011 season. And as it turns out, change does not always come easy. A couple of weeks ago, I went to Gap to check out a few of their new wide leg trouser styles. And as hard as I tried to get into the 70s groove, I couldn’t help but feel that they were all a bit too wide for my taste. I ended up buying the Curvy style, which believe it or not, I thought were flared in the fitting room!
Obviously, when I took them home, wore them a couple of times, I realized that they really weren’t as wide-legged as I’d imagined. I guess my perception was a tad skewed because of all the skinnies in my closet. Either way, after a taste of (slight) flare again, I’m getting really into it, and will definitely be going back for more. Hopefully, I won’t be such a denim-chicken this time around. So tell me, will you be embracing the 70s trend this spring? Or will you be sticking with your skinny jeans for now?
