The JCrew wide leg jeans arrived last night. They are 98%cotton/2% elastane - thick and warm. I usually wear a size 8 bottom (30in waist, 38in hips) but have jeans in my closet from size 28 to 31 that fit! The size 29R fit best in store, so I ordered a size 29T to get the length I needed. I feel like I should have sized down because there is a lot of room around the waist. My inseam is tall, but not my rise. There is room to tuck things in though, and I don't mind a less 'squeezey' fit - so will keep and see if I can shrink them in the wash and dry.

I've experimented with a few different top styles and footwear, but I'm looking for more ideas. Have you added wide legs to your closet and how are you wearing them?

#1-2 Levi's flannel top and red Converse sneakers
#3-4 navy and black cotton knit turtleneck - MWWH and Steeve Madden Chelsea boot
#5-6 Armor Lux striped T and Skeetchers sneakers
