Celebrity style: Kareena Kapoor Khan to Bella Hadid are wearing wide-leg jeans this summer
So comfortable, so stylish
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.
