This trend proves that chic doesn't necessarily mean uncomfortable. Wide leg jeans were brought back into fashion last spring with this whole return of the sailor style. They are such an antidote for those, who are already sick of skinny denim pants. And they have a huge advantage over super tight jeans - wide pants are perfect for all kinds of body shapes (some examples of that here). Celebrities are also in love with them. Impossible not to be.
