fashion Millennials gather. This is how to style wide-leg jeans with boots. Basmah Qazi

Ever since Gen Z declared that skinny jeans were out, millennials all around the world have found themselves in a serious predicament. (Me, I’m in the predicament.) 

Our wardrobes are stocked with skinny jeans in every colour and wash you can imagine.

Then suddenly, some random 20-year-old on TikTok said they’re the most hideous thing since peplum tops and that we simply MUST wear wide-leg denim instead.

(Of course it goes without saying that if you love your skinny jeans, you should absolutely stick with them. But if you’re wanting to try something new, then unfortunately we need to let our legs breathe a little more!)

Personally, I love wide-leg jeans. They’re far more comfortable than my skinnies, and they make my legs look about six feet long, so I welcomed the trend with open arms. 

However, the general consensus throughout the Mamamia office is that they’re hard to style with anything other than sneakers and what on earth are we supposed to do with all the excess fabric at our feet!?
