It’s that time of the year again—the days are long and hot and we’ve grown tired of our usual lineup of lightweight dresses and skirts. But, with temperatures regularly reaching the 90s here in New York, we can’t bear the thought of slipping into a pair of skinny jeans, so instead we’re reaching for roomy wide leg styles.

Wide leg jeans and trousers are the perfect alternative to dresses and skirts for hot summer days—they’re breezier than other denim styles and depending on how they’re styled—look just as polished. Still unsure about how to wear them? Keep scrolling for four of our favorite ways and shop the post to add a pair to your own summertime wardrobe.

1. Denim + Denim

Yes, you can wear double denim! Pair your wide leg jeans with a tucked in denim shirt and add a pop of color with a bright bag or shoes. Voilá! You’ve just created the chicest version of the Texas Tuxedo.

4. Oversized White Shirt + Distressed Wide Leg Denim

For a more avant garde, edgy look top a pair of distressed wide leg jeans with a white tunic or oversized white blouse. Make sure to leave it untucked a la Phoebe Philo’s Céline.
