Celebrity style: Kareena Kapoor Khan to Bella Hadid are wearing wide-leg jeans this summer

So comfortable, so stylish

By ELLE team  June 1st, 2018

If there’s one universal truth we can all agree on, it’s that denim will never go out of fashion — but celebrity style does dictate how we wear our preferred urban uniform. The ’60s and ’70s are reminiscent of bell-bottoms; the ’80s were an ode to high-waisted jeans; the ’90s were all about flared and wide-leg jeans; the noughties saw low-rise jeans; and the current decade has popularised skinny and distressed jeans. This summer, however, Bollywood and Hollywood celebrities are veering towards the ’70s trend of wide-leg jeans.

Malaika Arora takes on the trend with a high-waisted pair that features slits on each side; Kareena Kapoor Khan and Bella Hadid pick dual-toned pairs; Jacqueline Fernandez experiments with a lighter shade in white; Janhvi Kapoor picks a geometrical patterned pair. Here’s our pick of the best wide-leg and flared jeans, as seen on leading celebrities.

Janhvi Kapoor

Jahnvi takes the classic route by styling her patterned wide-leg pair with a ribbed white tee, nude wedges and red lips.
